In which I write about Chinese human rights, words and deeds….
I was pleased to have the chance to participate in an online debate. My entry is here.
“Now is the time, for China’s stature in the world to meet its economic power – for China to bring its actions swiftly and manifestly in line with its words, ideals and its constitution. Allowing true and free debate online about key issues – from the economy to politics – without fear of deletion or harassment would be a tremendous step forward. Setting Chinese media free to report on and challenge authority would in fact make the government so much better and stronger. These would be the actions of a confident country, and one worthy of world admiration.”
