Should Confucius Institutes be banned? They only serve as fronts to spread Chinese Communist Party propaganda and commit espionage on other countries. They are controlled by the CCP and need to be stopped.
This telegraph article, is about: "The American Association of University Professors (AAUP) called for agreements between Confucius Institutes and nearly 100 universities to be either cancelled or renegotiated so that they properly reflected Western values of free speech."
We need to rid our countries of these institutes. They have found their way into the Toronto District School Board, the largest school board in Canada. Thanks to the Chairman of the board seems to be paid off or influenced by the CCP, the TDSB signed a contract with the Confucius Institute. He retired the next day and blamed the entire thing on Falung Gong which is even more evidence he is paid off or influenced by the CCP."Confucius Institutes function as an arm of the Chinese state and are allowed to ignore academic freedom," the AAUP said in a statement, urging US universities to "cease their involvement" with the institutes unless major reforms are instituted.
China's network of 300 Confucius Institutes – including 11 branches in on British university campuses – can be a lucrative source of funds for universities but are exempt from many of the basic rules government academic discourse.
They are designed to project a favourable image of China's ruling Communist Party around the world through language and cultural programmes, but are allowed to restrict discussions of topics unpalatable to China's ruling Communist Party such as the occupation of Tibet.
