I was in China about that time. I am still in contact with my Chinese friends. There are genuinely spies and propaganda everywhere in China. Everyone should watch the Unsilenced movie. People that give a low rate to this movie are communists themselves. The world needs to know the truth about the persecution, evil, and atrocities of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). After watching this movie, you may choose not to make the CCP richer by buying Chinese goods. The CCP is already invading all the countries of the world with their Belt and Road Initiative project. Watch this movie! Be aware if you don't want it to happen in your country. Watch your politicians. They have the power to betray you anytime, just like the CCP does daily.
