Aussie PM: Clear human rights abuses are being committed in TibetMikey 2 comments
I'm happy to report that our new PM here in Australia isn't a conforming push-over like our previous PM. In Washington Kevin Rudd said it was clear human rights abuses were being committed in Tibet. Today he repeated those words at a university in Beijing. John Howard would have trimmed his eyebrows before opposing an international delagate. Tibetan Regional Government chairman Xiangba Puncog said:
"Australia, or other countries, should have better appreciation and understanding of the fact that people in Tibet are now enjoying democracy and have wonderful human rights protection, and those remarks are totally unfounded"
Ah yes, the Tibetans are clearly enjoying democracy and wonderful human rights.
