MINI EDITORIAL:  Word on the street is that there are as many as 800 registered Worldcon members from China with the right to vote in this year’s Site Selection, which will determine the location of the 2023 Worldcon.  Given the relatively low voter participation in site selection, that makes it look like a lock when it comes to voting for 2023.
I urge you to vote for Winnipeg instead.
China is engaged in genocide against several ethnic minorities in its country and is using a variety of means to cover this up on the international stage.
Just as they have used their influence over films distributed in China, businesses in China and even sports played in China, so too will this regime use an even like Worldcon to polish its image and distract from what it is really doing.  China’s win does not have to be a forgone conclusion.
