A food safety factory shutdown has Americans hunting for baby formula. Readying themselves for a covid-19 lockdown, Chinese in Beijing emptied store shelves. Emerging from lockdown, some in Shanghai are visiting well-provisioned markets. U.S.-China agricultural trade is booming, but many are still being left hungry. Food security, sustainability and safety remain issues.
Talking Points, June 4 - 18, 2008
June 4 - June 18, 2008
Nineteen years ago, People’s Liberation Army units took control of central Beijing, violently ending seven weeks of citizen-led demonstrations in and around Tiananmen Square. Those demonstrations and others in cities across China challenged the government with calls for democracy, for the eradication of corruption, and for action to address economic problems such as rising unemployment and inflation. On June 5, after hundreds and perhaps more had already been killed, cameras caught one of the most indelible images of the 20th century. A lone man went into Chang’an Avenue and blocked a line of tanks headed towards the Square. That act of defiance, of a single individual standing against a state, inspired many.
