Stop MacDonald's Cultural Genocide in Canton! 勿當奴 保粵語
Canton (Guangzhou) is the origin of the Cantonese language spoken by over 100 million people around the world. It is the local language of Canton and the official language of Hong Kong, as well as the mother tongue of many ethnic Chinese in Malaysia, Singapore, Canada, and the US. It dates back to more than 2000 years, preserves much more Chinese vocabularies compared to other Chinese languages, and most importantly the language of the people of Canton. The United Nations has recognized Cantonese as a language.
MacDonald's has decided to end their Cantonese option for their ordering services in Canton, forcing customers to either speak Mandarin or English. We believe MacDonald's action is to join the Communists effort in an ongoing cultural genocide, turning Canton into another Tibet and Xinjiang. We need to tell MacDonald's to stop!
