She also campaigned on Chinese issues such as the Morecambe Bay disaster and was the press officer for the community protest which successfully challenged the MAFF and media over the Foot and Mouth Disease (FMD) smear of 2001 resulting in a public apology and vindication from the minister. Anna was a founder member of the Chinese Civil Rights Action Group which grew out of the FMD action and was the precursor to Min Quan, a branch of The Monitoring Group.
