The departing soundtrack? The voices of protestors.
Many Chinese nationals stood outside the consulate all day protesting the party in total control of the country they once called home.
Wen Mu one of the organizers tells Channel 2 Investigates she does not view inside the consulate as enemies, clarifying, “They are also Chinese people. The people is not the enemy, the party yeah, I think the party is.”
Mu quickly adding, “I want them to really leave. They need to respect America’s law.”
Passionate for her cause Mu also sides with her adopted homeland over the Trump administration’s decision to send everyone packing.
