Don’t Ban Miss World from Supporting Human Rights in China

Human-Rights-China-by-Tea-Rose

Target: Max Sieben Baucus, U.S. Ambassador to China

Goal: Investigate China’s alleged refusal to allow Canadian Miss World contestant, Anastasia Lin, into the country to participate in the pageant.

China allegedly refused Miss World contestant Anastasia Lin entry into the country. Lin, a Canadian citizen, was not allowed into China to compete in this year’s pageant even though she was technically eligible for a tourist visa upon arrival. Lin was the only contestant who was refused visa privileges, and she contends it is because she is outspoken against the country’s human rights violations.

Lin was originally born in China and moved to Canada in her teenage years. Since departing her birth country, she has publicly criticized the nation’s policies against religious freedom. She also contends that her father, who remains in the country, is regularly harassed by security officials.

It’s questionable why she was not allowed into China to continue her quest for the Miss World title, and one is left to agree it is because she has exercised her freedom to speak her mind against the country. Demand an investigation into China’s alleged refusal to allow Anastasia Lin within its borders to compete in Miss World 2015. She was the only contestant who was refused a visa.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Ambassador Baucus,

Please open an investigation into China’s alleged refusal to allow Miss World Canadian contestant, Anastasia Lin, into the country to finish out the pageant competition. Lin, who reached the finals, was refused a visa that she appears to have been eligible to receive. She is the only contestant who was not awarded entrance.

Lin is outspoken against China’s violations of human rights, and she believes that this is why the country refused to award her a travel visa. If this is true, this, too, is a violation of human rights, and it deserves to be looked into. Please investigate this matter.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
