Divestment Against China Government's Persecution

CHARLOTTE, N.C., ( -- A group of investment managers has initiated a divestment campaign against publicly traded companies that are state-owned by the government of the People's Republic of China. This action is intended as a sanction against the Chinese government for their persecution of Christians and for the violation of human and religious rights.

China's government is cited for religious and human rights violations by organizations that identify and document such activities. These organizations include International Christian Concern, Open Doors USA, and the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom.

These money managers stress that it is essential not to enable China's government in their violation of religious and human rights through investments in their publicly traded state-owned companies. They believe that most people would not knowingly want their investment monies to support the brutal violation of human and religious rights.

While these financial professionals are encouraging the avoidance of investing in state-owned Chinese stocks, they suggest that the country of China and its people offer many other investment opportunities through companies not owned by China's government.

An organizer of DivestPersecution, Tom Fyler, President of Commodities & Securities, Inc., emphasizes that -- "The primary purpose of this effort is to raise awareness about the persecution of Christians and the violation of human and religious rights that occur daily worldwide." This effort encourages financial and other means of support to organizations that advocate on behalf of people impacted by these abuses.
