CCP-Linked Manufacturer Drops US Land Grab Plan

Lori Brock, a courageous single mother and farm owner, successfully opposed plans for a battery plant built in her neighborhood in Green Twp, Michigan, by the CCP Chinese business Gotion.

Brock’s farm sits alongside various parcels of land acquired with Michigan public cash where the battery facility will be constructed; Brock has about 150 acres where she breeds various animals.

Gotion Inc. is a wholly owned American subsidiary of Gotion High Tech, a Chinese manufacturer of rechargeable batteries.

Gotion’s veep of North American operations, Chuck Thelen, has stressed that the Chinese government would have no part in the battery factory.

Brock began investigating when she heard about the factory’s preliminary plans. The proposed site for the battery factory was on the third biggest watershed in Michigan.

There are also security worries since the biggest National Guard training site in the United States is less than 100 miles away. It is “one hundred percent” probable that the facility would be used to spy for the CCP, as former head of the US National Counterintelligence and Security Center William Evanina said to a Senate hearing in July.

There was a price to pay for Brock’s outspoken opposition to the project. The Department of Agriculture and Rural Development reportedly filed a complaint against Lori’s property with the office of Soros-funded SOS Jocelyn Benson. Officials at the state and municipal levels tried everything they could to intimidate those against the facility, but it seems their efforts were futile.

In a statement released last week, Gotion confirmed its acquisition of 270 acres of property in Green Charter Township but said it would not be moving through with plans to buy two big pieces of land classified for agricultural use.

Brock, who has been at the forefront of the community’s resistance to Gotion’s plans, called the concession a “huge” win but said the struggle was “far from over.”

She noted that the U.S. can’t purchase land in China and asked why our government allows the CCP to purchase land here.
