China visit

BBC: China pushes Australia trade ties.

The Chinese president gets in front of the parliament. The Dalai Lama didn’t even get a meeting with the Prime Minister. It’s a disgrace.

Some good friends of mine are involved in the Australia Tibet Council, and there is apparently a great ad on page five of today’s The Australian as a response to President Hu Jintao’s day in parliament. Will have to grab a copy and check it out.

Oh, btw, you may want to check out what Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch have to say about China’s abysmal human rights record. I wonder what Bob and Kerry would have said about that?! 😉
