David Thompson Meets With Chinese Official Responsible For Human Rights Violations, Religious Persecution
Our Prime Minister is in China right now. On Monday he met with Wu Bangguo, the number three honcho over there and the Chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress (NPC). As China’s top lawmaker, Bangguo has established a dark reputation with Human Rights Watch and other groups who care about the pathetic state of personhood in China.
It seems that Mr. Bangguo has quite a record – starting with a campaign of eliminating crippled and female orphans through deliberate starvation when he was an official in Shanghai during the 1980’s. Now Mr. Bangguo oversees the persecution of both Christians and Falon Gong members.
According to the Chinese press, our Prime Minister pledged our country’s never-ending support for the Communist Chinese efforts to end democracy in Taiwan. The news article doesn’t exactly put it that way, but that is the truth nonetheless.
Ah well… you know how it is when you’re a beggar nation. You can’t be too concerned about Human Rights violations or democracy.
I wonder if Prime Minister Thompson will ask for a tour of the Chinese slave labour camps while he’s over there? Given Barbados’ historical connection with the slave trade, it seems like a natural request for our Prime Minister.
