I wonder if "made in china" on products will have a different meaning now. I hope we start buying from countries and remember this moment in time whenever we see "made in China" not to mention the Slavery, child labor and poor working conditions & poor salaries that make the products so affordable, the concentration camps for Muslims, the police brutality In Hong Kong (they've been beating them for a whole YEAR) The persecution of Tibetan Monks, Christians, fulan gong and all religions, the censorship and punishment of citizens Who criticize the government , the mass surveillance and all the while being the NUMBER ONE WORLD POLLUTER Destroying the environment. buy from any other country- remember this.
