If you’ve checked out the website today, you’ve probably noticed a small change – the incorporation of the China e-Lobby into the China Support Network. The folks over at CSN had a reorganization. As part of the reshuffle, as it were, I was invited to be CSN’s President, an invitation I graciously accepted. Soon after, with the agreement of co-founders Greg Eatroff and Dave Albert, the China e-Lobby was merged with CSN, and is now a part of it.
This was done for two reasons. The first was simple convenience; it would have been more than a little strange being a liaison between myself and – myself. The other reason was because I feel the two organizations complemented each so well that the whole is greater than the some of its parts. The China Support Network has history (it was formed in the aftermath of the Tiananmen Square massacre), and the name recognition within the dissident community; the China e-Lobby has a wealth of information going back over five years and (some) better contacts in Washington, DC, and Canada.
What changes will it mean for the blog? Not much. CSN links will be more prominent, but outside of that, the blog will be just as it always is (for better or worse).
Outside of the blog, I consider this a tremendous opportunity for the China e-Lobby, the China Support Network, and the anti-Communist movement as a whole. Together, we can make this an international movement that can bring together anti-Communists around the world, advance the election of anti-Communist, pro-democracy governments throughout the free world, and better help the Chinese people liberate themselves from their Communist oppressors.
