All Lives Matter But Not That China Gives A Damn!

All Lives Matter But Not That China Gives A Damn!

As the US continues to see protests against the police killing of George Floyd in China this appalling event is being cynically exploited for purposes of political propaganda.

Claiming double-standards on America’s criticisms of the increasing oppression in Hong Kong, the Chinese ministry of disinformation has been pointing fingers at the US authorities claiming they’ve no right to ‘interfere’ on Hong Kong while African-American citizens are being murdered by cops and protesters suppressed with force.

If ever further proof of how duplicitous and hypocritical the Chinese regime is then this latest response is just that. No one is going to be fooled by this fabricated ‘concern’ for the plight of Black Americans. From a regime that has for decades murdered, brutalized, sterilized, terrorized and traumatized the people of occupied Tibet, East Turkistan, Southern Mongolia and Manchuria.

China trumpeting on about human rights and spewing false sympathy for the ongoing injustice, oppression and marginalization suffered by America’s black community is a calculated and heartless deception.

It’s like Jack-the-Ripper posting a letter to the London Times condemning the murder of prostitutes!

All oppression of human rights and the violent denial of civil freedoms demands to be exposed and challenged, but no one can take seriously the posturing of the Chinese regime.

UK Betrayal On Hong Kong (Like Tibet) Is A Greed-Driven Policy Failure

UK Betrayal On Hong Kong (Like Tibet) Is A Greed-Driven Policy Failure

Image: NPR

There’s a whole bunch of governments around the world who for years have happily gorged themselves at China’s money trough. Even the platitudes on human rights and freedom where swiftly jettisoned by states who valued profit above such democratic principles. It’s been a scramble for money, and its ongoing.

Of all countries none have appeased the Chinese regime more than that of the UK, it’s equivalent of the State Department (known as the Foreign and Commonwealth Office) has since engineering the Sino-British Joint Declaration, signed on December 19,1984, given a new meaning to the term softly-softly.

Their advisors and specialists have consistently urged governments to be sensitive towards China, counseling a constructive engagement, while paying scant and cosmetic attention to the vicious oppression, censorship and cultural genocide waged against Tibetans, Uyghurs. Mongolians and Manchurians.

This approach has proved a complete failure in moderating such troubling excesses, of course any claim that positive relations with China would lead to reform and a reduction in human rights abuse was completely exposed as a fig-leaf when the pro-democracy students in Tienanmen Square were murdered in June 1989. Apart from a few acutely composed words of sympathy and hand-wringing it was to be business as usual, with the blood still on the streets of Beijing.

Since then China’s economic and global reach has become dominant, along with that rise the UK government has continued to blindly follow the counsel of its foreign policy strategists. Chinese money has bought considerable sections of the British economy, while the influence of China upon British academic institutions has grown considerably. Trade deals have flourished, corporations and politicians falling over themselves to benefit from positive relations with China’s totalitarian state and its many corrupted businesses. Including of course Huawei, one of China’s go-to mass surveillance providers, concerns on exposing critical communications infrastructure to control by Chinese tech-companies have been brushed aside by the British government.

Little wonder its Foreign Office has remained virtually silent on the false promises made to Hong Kong, now cruelly revealed as China makes legislative move to criminalize any and all forms of opposition and dissent there. Like the Tibetans and Uyghurs suffering the destruction of their culture and brutally denied their freedom,the UK authorities; driven by foreign policy advice, will serve up similar excuses, warm words and platitudes to the brave and determined people of Hong Kong.

It was always a betrayal, always duplicity and having kowtowed to the Chinese regime perfidious England is too busy making money from China to give a damn!

United Nations’ International Day For Eliminating Some Violence Against Women

As November 25th has been designated the International Day For The Elimination Of Violence Against Women our sense of solidarity towards this event and the objectives it champions is tainted by a troubling reality.

The very United Nations agencies behind this event, UN Women and UN Commission on the Status of Women are the same organizations which have knowingly and consistently ignored China’s program of forced sterilizations against women. Along with the wider women’s ‘movement’ and prominent NGOs, supposedly dedicated to women’s rights, they pose themselves as defenders of such freedoms and human rights across social media. Yet have cynically refused to condemn or oppose a range of violations inflicted by the Chinese regime.

These include: a policy of forcing Uyghur women into marriages with Han Chinese colonizers of occupied East Turkistan (so-called Xinjiang). Coercing Uyghur women to accept Chinese officials cohabiting their homes and sleeping with them, in essence rape! Detaining thousands of Uyghur women in forced labor and indoctrination camps where they face emotional, physical and psychological abuse. The placement of Uyghur girls,many infants into detention centers where they are denied access to their parents and forced and brainwashed to adopt Chinese language and cultural identity. A program of forced sterilizations which targets Uyghur, Tibetan, Manchurian, Mongolian and Han Chinese women.

This harrowing catalogue of violations does not trouble those who would have you accept them as being defenders of women’s rights, it’s not ignorance of these disturbing abuses which explains their collective silence. The reason is one of political correctness, selective values and agenda that refuse to stand against such atrocities, this is a singular example of silence is complicity. The hypocrisy and denial such organizations present on these issues is breathtaking and questions entirely their credibility and ethical standing.

Apple’s Core Values Drive Appeasement Of China’s Regime

The decision by Apple to once again appease China and,  pull from sale an app which the Chinese regime objected to on the grounds it enabled Hong Kong’s protesters to view location and movement of local police units, reveals its core values. The corporation cares little about human rights or freedom, its entire structure is dedicated to profit, at any cost it would appear. Including grovelling to dictatorships such as Xi Jinping’s regime to maintain its market position within China. This action by Apple places them even more firmly on the side of the oppressor. Moreover in denying the people of Hong Kong a resource to monitor what is an increasingly violent and brutal police force it is enabling and empowering the enemies of free-speech, public assembly and the right to dissent.

There’s many simple actions to be taken in support of Tibet’s cause for national freedom and human rights, here’s one right here. Don’t use the TikTok app on your device, as the Chinese company is in bed with China’s regime in banning mention of Tibet. Any references are censored, as are subjects such as the 1989 slaughter at Tiananmen Square or ongoing persecution of Uyghurs. Don’t choose the censors, boycott this app and let your friends and family know.

Liverpool Museum Extracted Bio-Metric Data From Visitors During China Exhibition

Liverpool Museum reportedly complied with local police to install facial recognition system to scan visitors

Can you imagine what John Lennon would have thought about a museum in his Liverpool home-town installing facial recognition technology to invade the privacy of visitors, in an act of big-brother surveillance? Maybe his son can write a song about that? Yet for sure that’s what has happened according to a report by the UK campaigners Big Brother Watch, and what lies behind the decision is a cause for real concern to anyone valuing human rights and the intrusion of the state upon civil and personal liberties.

The World Museum has admitted that such technology was operated, and in a curious twist stated that the decision to extract the bio-metric data of its visitors was taken during an exhibition on China’s ‘terracotta warriors’.

It’s not the innocent visitors to Liverpool’s World Museum, many of whom were children, who need to be monitored and scanned but the torturers and oppressors of China’s regime!

It seems the move was suggested by the local cops! Now what on this good earth would they be so concerned about? Details are scarce, a tight lid has been closed which makes us wonder what was going down behind the scenes. What facts are known show that several Chinese government and academic institutions were closely involved with facilitating the exhibition. That it was taking placed in England, for the first time outside off of London suggests that UK authorities such as the Foreign Office would have a key role.

Did the British government have an agreement with the Chinese regime on excessive security measures surrounding the terracotta army exhibition?

While in the background would be lurking security agencies like MI5. Such monitoring and involvement would have the goal of ensuring matters proceeded without incident or controversy. After all like China’s ‘Panda Diplomacy’ these artifacts are used by the Chinese regime as soft propaganda, exhorting the cultural marvels of an ancient past, for very present political purposes.

Given the appeasement which runs through UK policy towards China there would have been an acute sensitivity surrounding the exhibition, the question is who requested that face-scanners be part of security measures? From what we know Britain has some legal restrictions and protocols on the deployment and operation of such technology, on what basis then did the cops press the museum to employ such an intrusion of personal privacy?

Did they have confirmed intelligence of a planned protest or criminal action? If so surely an increased police presence would have been an appropriate measure? Was this the result of a confidential accord reached between the UK and Chinese government? Meanwhile we should of course give thought to the use of the bio-metric data which was taken from all those who visited this exhibition. Who had responsibility for it? Was it shared with any other agencies, including the Chinese authorities? Just where is that digital record now?

Whatever dirty politics or anxiety saturated diplomacy may be behind this gross violation of citizens right to privacy, one fact remains the Chinese regime and its technological attack dog, Huwawei have implemented the world’s most oppressive facial-recognition systems against the people of China and indeed in occupied lands such as Tibet and East Turkistan.

There is no privacy within China, no citizens rights, only mass surveillance, oppression, torture and censorship.

That a supposed liberal democracy like the UK has authorized such surveillance against its own people, in probable collaboration with and appeasement of China’s totalitarian regime is a deeply disturbing development. One that should be thoroughly exposed and challenged!

Macron’s Elitist Fetish Appeases China Oppresses French Protests And Ignores Tibet

If you want an indicator of the venal condition of international politics then look no further than today’s visit to France of China’s dictator, Xi Jinping. Currently enjoying the many pleasures of French hospitality and hosted by President Macron. Whose developed sense of ‘pragmatism’ and devotion to globalized economics facilitates a nauseating appeasement of the Chinese regime.

Amid the photo-opportunities and spray-on smiles it’s contracts which are firmly on the table, prominent is the 300 jet deal signed off by Airbus. No doubt some folks are set to make a killing on the markets as France’s elite wine and dine the man who authorizes the state-inflicted terrorism against the people and culture of Tibet.

The principles of liberté, égalité, fraternité have no place within the negotiations and hand-shakes offered to China, those values are an inconvenience to an open and profitable engagement with the Chinese authorities.

Such principles however are very much alive within the hearts of France’s people, as displayed by ongoing protests waged by the des gilets jaunes (the yellow vests). A grassroots movement that arose during November 2018 to demand social, economic and political justice.

These legitimate demonstrations have on numerous occasions been met with police violence, baton charges, tear gas and rubber bullets. The streets of France are home to armored personal carriers, armed paramilitary, body-armored police and most recently units of the French army have been deployed.

All this against its own citizens, measures however which Xi Jinping would heartilly approve of, although he would counsel Macron to authorize the use of live rounds, electric batons, mass detentions and incarceration in ‘re-education’ camps!

Such a totalitarian nightmare is not likely to be imposed upon France yet in his elitist zealotry for globalization, and salivating hopes of securing trade agreements with China, President Macron forgets the history and guiding spirit of his nation. As he countenances a military response to ongoing unrest, orders police to forcefully break public opposition to his policies, and tramples over citizens rights he’s dishonoring the principles upon which the French Constitution was founded.

Those values of freedom, justice and human rights, so brutally denied when France itself experienced a brutal occupation, are the very same aspirations of the Tibetan people, who endure a miserable existence under an illegal and suffocating rule by China! There is a shared experience between France and Tibet, both have known immense suffering under foreign rule, equally their respective peoples value greatly and seek freedom, justice, political and civil rights.
