Inter-Parliamentary Alliance on China
The Inter-Parliamentary Alliance on China is a U.S. led effort to organize worsened relations between U.S. allies and the People's Republic of China, to secure continued hegemony.
Formally it is an "international, cross-party alliance of parliamentarians from democratic countries", but since several of the members have very extensive ties to intelligence organizations, this is a top-led effort, and there is nothing parliamentary about it.
The financing of the Alliance is not public (but presumably comes from diverse Foundations, and possibly even Foreign Offices).
The central organizer is U.S. Senator Marco Rubio, Acting Chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee. Formally it is a "cross-party alliance of parliamentarians", mostly conservative,liberal and greens, but several of the members have especially distinguished themselves in pushing for sanctions and military actions against other countries the United States have selected as enemies, like Venezuela, Russia and Iran.
The new coalition comes at a time of the U.S. announcing it would take a “competitive approach” to China, and this 'Alliance' could be seen as a way to sabotage trade between the competition and third countries.
Fitting its Cold War predecessors, the 'Alliance' has chosen to resurrect the propaganda buzzword, "the Communist Party of China" as a rallying cry when organizing the offensive.
It focuses on a range of perceived weak points for China, especially financing ethnic minority front groups and regional separatism, to push for introduction of economic sanctions and cancellation of Chinese economic investments abroad.
One of their advisors is Adrian Zenz, a non-Chinese speaker who is one of the sources for the claim of "1 million Uighurs in concentration camps", based on Chinese documents.
Several of the Australian members in government positions have been central in blaming China for the Covid-19 pandemic and demanding "an international investigation" (presumably led by themselves) into China's culpability, leading to severe Chinese counter-sanctions, a reduction of several billion dollars in Chinese purchases of raw materials from Australia.
