US Universities Now Shutting Down ‘Arms Of China’s Propaganda Machine’

US Universities Now Shutting Down ‘Arms Of China’s Propaganda Machine’, by Steve Watson.

Another US university has announced that it is shutting down its Confucius Institute, the organization which is overseen by the Chinese Ministry of Education, amid charges that the ‘cultural exchange’ programs are being used by the communist state to indoctrinate Americans and spread Chinese propaganda.

The University of California-Davis is the latest of a string of Universities to axe the Confucius Institute, after heightened concerns among US officials that China is abusing the program. …

The problem extends beyond the US, with European officials also expressing concerns that China is using the programs to infiltrate and spy on other countries. Some nations have outright banned the Chinese from setting up the institutes at their universities.

I wonder if Australian universities will follow suit?
