Rubio Condemns CCP’s Educational Reforms in Hong Kong, Urges Biden to Stand Up to Beijing

Feb 5, 2021 | Press Releases

Miami, FL — U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), author of the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act (P.L. 116–76), issued the following statement after Hong Kong announced educational ‘guidelines’ under the Chinese Government’s draconian National Security Law. Following the anti-government protests in Hong Kong, the Chinese Government and the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) continue their crackdown on Hong Kong’s autonomy now by imposing sweeping educational reforms. 

“Every day it becomes more evident that Hong Kong is more controlled by the CCP,” Rubio said. “The Chinese Government will stop at nothing to impose its will on Hong Kongers and undermine their long-cherished freedoms. Through the disguise of promoting patriotism, Hong Kong’s government has imposed propagandistic educational guidelines. These so-called reforms make clear that the CCP’s goal is to crush academic freedom in Hong Kong and begin imposing ideological uniformity on the next generations of Hong Kongers that it has long imposed on mainland Chinese. The U.S. cannot stay silent as Beijing continues to crush Hong Kong’s basic liberties. The Biden Administration must continue to hold accountable those officials linked with crushing the city’s long-cherished freedoms and autonomy.”

Rubio is Cochair of the bipartisan and bicameral Congressional-Executive Commission on China (CECC) and is a member of the Subcommittee on East Asia, the Pacific, and International Cybersecurity Policy.
