破土 Ground Breaking (Chinese)
Ground Breaking is an online and offline platform founded by mostly young people.

We hope to hear more voices from contemporary youth.
China Study Group (In English)
“China Study Group was formed in New York City in 1993 as a non-profit organization, and it is now a global group of scholars and activists concerned with carrying on the critical tradition of China-focused critique perhaps best exemplified in the past by William Hinton. The purpose of the CSG is to facilitate the networking of such people and to promote the dissemination of critical information and research works. It aims to provide alternative perspectives on and assessments of issues pertaining to China — both its revolutionary past and today’s China in the context of globalization. Members of the CSG support the broad goals of the Chinese revolution that triumphed in 1949. We seek to produce knowledge and stimulate debate regarding its achievements and limitations, as well as to offer a critical perspective on the radical changes that have occurred in China over the past 25 years and an ongoing analysis of its role in the world today.”
