China showers money, free trips on Barbados journalists and government employees. Where’s mine?

China Barbados Negotiations

That sound you hear at Chinese embassies throughout the Caribbean is the shuffling of journalists, government officials and other folks crawling on their knees to get their share of the free trips, goods, money and other largesse dispensed by the Chinese government because… because of their good and kind intentions.

The only condition (and it’s not even necessary to agree in writing) is that the receiving governments, people and organisations don’t mention the sins of China or the Chinese Communist Party, including running the world’s largest slave camp system, systemic poisoning of the environment and the routine trampling of human rights, freedom of religion etc.. Also on the ‘don’t mention’ list are forced abortions and executions for property crimes to facilitate government selling of prisoners’ organs. And China certainly doesn’t want to hear any talk of the Tienanmen Square Massacre or how journalists are beaten to death for reporting illegal disposal of cadmium waste. Same same for the concerns over the Confucius Institute programme at UWI.

So pay no attention to these fanciful stories of Chinese slave camps, forced abortions and repression of Christian. Just line up for the free money!

DELEGATION HEADING TO CHINA

Some 19 persons will be heading to the People’s Republic of China later this month to attend a number of bilateral seminars on Agro-processing and Agriculture.

The group is scheduled to leave the island next Wednesday, June 10, 2015 for the seminars, which will run from Friday, June 12, to Thursday, July 2, on Hainan Island, China. The delegation will be led by Senior Agricultural Officer, Leslie Brereton, and will include representatives from the Barbados Investment Development Corporation (BIDC), the Barbados Agricultural Development and Marketing Corporation (BADMC), and a number of private persons involved in agriculture.

The bilateral seminars are fully funded by the People’s Republic of China and are organised through the Academy for International Business Officials (AIBO), also known as the Training Centre of the Ministry of Commerce. The seminars are expected to include presentations, lectures and tours. (KRM/BGIS)

Barbados China Friendship Association – Happy to not talk about China’s slave camps, forced abortions

Long-time readers of Barbados Free Press will remember that our founding editor Marcus (passed in 2013 and greatly missed) had a special place in his heart for the millions of Christians and others imprisoned as slaves in modern China’s Laogai slave camps. Marcus also wrote about the horrific forced abortions where Chinese mothers are kidnapped off the street, and held down while their babies are ripped from their wombs and killed.

All at the direction of the Chinese Communist government.

“In Communist China, the authorities kidnap pregnant women from the street, hold them down and abort their babies.

That is the government were talking about. The same government that has been showering gifts and financial aid upon Barbados in order to win our votes at the United Nations.

Shiu Yon Zhou knows this first hand. Her story is one you will not forget.”

Ambassador Xu Hong Meets with Chief of Staff of the Barbados Defence Force

(From Chinese Embassy in Barbados

2013/08/16

On August 14, Chinese Ambassador Xu Hong met with Colonel Quintyne, Chief of Staff of the Barbados Defence Force (BDF). They exchanged views on how to deepen bilateral relations with a focus on cooperation between Chinese People’s Liberation Army and Barbados Defence Force.

Colonel Quintyne extended his gratitude to the Chinese side for the technical support and personnel training provided to the BDF. He pointed out that in recent years, the military cooperation between Barbados and China developed smoothly with fruitful progress. He hoped to strengthen the cooperation and exchange between the two militaries thus deepening the friendship between Barbados and China.

Ambassador Xu spoke highly of the effort made by the BDF to promote bilateral military cooperation. He expressed the willingness to work together with Barbadian side to further widening the scope of military cooperation with the aim of raising bilateral relations to a new level.

And now for the counter story…

Chief Justice joins Barbados politicians celebrating 63 years of Chinese Communist murders

Chinese government officials order extra-judicial execution of protestor by steamroller

Like his predecessor, SIR David Simmons, Barbados Chief Justice Marston Gibson joined the politicians to honour China’s Communist government – celebrating with representatives of one of the most brutal and oppressive regimes on earth. (Barbados Advocate: China marks 63 years)

There is no doubt that the Chinese press will cover the appearance of the Chief Justice just as they covered and propagandized the participation of SIR David at the time he was Chief Justice. The appearance of members of the Judiciary and police officers from other countries is regularly publicized in China to enhance the sorry image of the Chinese judiciary with the masses.

The festivities were held in Bridgetown on Wednesday night to mark the 63rd Anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China when Mao and his gang took over, seized all privately held lands, businesses and assets and started the world’s largest slaughter of peasants and anyone else who disagreed with the communists. During the 1950s, the ChiComs established the world’s largest slave camp system where entire families of Christians, business people and other dissidents were imprisoned and forced to work for the state. China still maintains this slave camp system where Christians and others now make consumer products including soccer balls and auto parts for China’s economy.

“I have always found it shameful that Barbados – a nation founded with the assistance of chains, whips, rape and cultural genocide – now so easily supports nations involved in slavery and human rights violations.”

Human Rights in China delivered by road building machine

The arbitrary theft of land by the communists still goes on, and that leads us to the horrific story of He Zhi Hua – a Changsha villager who was forcibly evicted from his home so the land could be given to local business interests closely tied to the communist government officials. He Zhi Hua laid down on the road in protest to prevent the construction equipment from moving in.

The response from the government officials was to order the execution of He by driving over him with a steamroller in the same fashion as has been reported in North Korean executions. Continue reading

Barbados signs environmental deal with one of the world’s worst offenders: China

“During the visit, Barbados Environment Minister Dr. Denis Lowe said he was aware of China’s commitment to good environmental governance and its concerns about climate change and other issues which occupied the consciousness of global planners.”

… from a Barbados Government press release (reprinted at the bottom of this post)

“China warns foreigners to stop monitoring its pollution. The Chinese government claims it’s making serious efforts to clean up pollution. But as this horrifying report shows, much of their ‘success’ has involved simply moving their toxic industries out of sight…

Untreated industrial waste is pumped directly into rivers… the water is used to irrigate crops.”

… from the new documentary film Cancer Villages – China

What exactly does Barbados hope to learn from China about managing the environment?

If you’re going to speak, at least speak the truth – better to just keep silent than to perpetuate a lie. At least that’s what I was always taught.

In recent years China has seen mass riots and violent government responses when the citizen-slaves stand up to stop the ongoing slaughter of humanity caused by their government’s callous and long term disregard for people and the environment.

All those low priced Chinese goods you purchase are low priced for a number of reasons: government & private slave labour camps, sweatshops, rampant pollution and the communist disdain for individual human rights and human life.

“I often wonder about folks 200 years ago who purchased cotton and sugar…

Did they care that slaves suffered to provide the products at a certain price?

Every Barbadian should ask their own heart…

“Should we be taking gifts and buying products from a Chinese Communist government that relies upon slavery as a vital part of the economy?”

… from the BFP article Citizen Journalist Beaten To Death By Chinese Government Officials – Filmed Waste Disposal Near Homes

To the communists, people are always a government resource – never individuals. Where the state is supreme and individuals exist only to serve the state, these kinds of environmental abuses and disasters are at their worst. (See China Hush: Amazing Pictures, Pollution in China)

Disposable people feed China’s industrial machine. This man paid the price for low-priced Chinese goods in Barbados.

In the eyes of the Barbados Government, China can do no wrong. Like a dog begging for a cookie, Barbados will do anything and say anything for China – just as long as we know we can pick up some scraps thrown our way. Continue reading

Babies explain why Chinese-made products are so cheap.

Colour photo (look closely) of a normal day in Shanxi, China

The Statistics

Babies born with Spina bifida, anencephaly and other neural tube defects – for every 1,000 live births…

USA:  .75 for every 1,000 live births

China, Shanxi: 14 for every 1,000 live births

That’s 18.7 times more neural tube malformed babies born in Shanxi than in the USA. (ie: partial brain, spinal cord on the outside etc.)

The Photos

For unbelievable photos of living conditions and pollution in China, check out China Hush Amazing Pictures, Pollution in China.

I just can’t bring myself to post the photos of the children online. If you must, go to Google and search for photos of “shanxi china pollution birth defects”. It doesn’t much matter whether the “SafeSearch” is on or off: Send the children out of the room first.

China gives Barbados journalists “Hard-to-resist treats, free trips, all expenses paid… and flattery”

To The Nation, Barbados Advocate, Barbados Today: How much of your content is paid for by China?

As part of its efforts to influence global opinion about China, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) gives hard-to-resist treats to media workers in the Caribbean. In exchange for its generosity, the CCP hopes to get coverage of China in line with its propaganda.

“Interviews with participants indicate that success has been mixed, but that certain basic propaganda goals were achieved.”

Since around 2007, journalists and editors from these small island nations are fêted with official tours to China where they are greeted and banqueted, given tours and lectures, and patiently educated on the “peculiar characteristics” of modern China’s political and social system.

They are taught that China is a multi-party state, not a one-party dictatorship; that the current regime is authentically Chinese, rather than a foreign import; that the domestic media are very patriotic, not that they are state-controlled; and that the CCP is doing its utmost to distribute the country’s wealth in the most equitable fashion, not that it is rife with corruption.

China: Barbados Prime Minister “willing to learn” from the Communist Party of China

Barbados and China “supported each other on important international and regional issues”

“China willing to push ahead… good relationship between the two ruling parties”

Barbados willing to strengthen ties with China

Barbados Prime Minister Freundel Stuart, leader of the Democratic Labour Party (DLP), on Friday met with a Chinese delegation headed by Chen Fengxiang, vice minister of the International Department of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China.

Chen said that since diplomatic relations were set up between China and Barbados, political trust between the two countries has deepened day by day, cooperation in all sectors born abundant fruits, and the two countries supported each other on important international and regional issues. China is willing to push ahead the good relationship between the two countries and the two ruling parties.

Stuart said the DLP is willing to learn from the governing experience of the CPC, and his country wishes to enhance the relationship with China through communication between the two political parties. Continue reading

Communist Party of China: Senior official invited to Barbados by DLP

CPC Central Committee issues Glorious Statement concerning Comrade Chen Fengxiang

-- Chen Fengxiang -- 陈凤翔

At the invitation of the Democratic Labour Party, Comrade Chen Fengxiang 陈凤翔 Deputy Director of the International Liaison Department of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, left Beijing Friday to visit Barbados. His tour of Barbados and two other friendly nations will be from February 25 to March 12.

Deputy Director Chen Fengxiang 陈凤翔 will meet and consult with officials from the Barbados Democratic Labour Party to review the plans for the new Barbados National Monument to the Victims of the Tiananmen Square Massacre. Deputy Director Chen Fengxiang 陈凤翔 will offer his opinion that Barbados should forget about this monument and human rights in China, and instead continue to accept cash and trade concessions from the People’s Republic of China.*

* Okay, okay – so BFP changed the CPC Central Committee’s press release a little bit. If they can’t take a joke they shouldn’t ‘a sent us the “glorious” release. (They really have to work on the translation a little more.) I guess we’ll be off the Central Committee’s list of official Barbados news organisations next time!  🙂

Barbados silent about China kidnapping, forcing late term abortions, sterilizations on 7000 women

Blind lawyer & human rights activist Chen Guangcheng released to house arrest after 4 years jail.

In 2005 a blind, self-taught country lawyer named Chen Guangcheng filed a class action lawsuit against Communist party officials in his area who used kidnapping and violence to force 7000 women to have late term abortions and sterilizations. He exposed an abortion and sterilization quota system in the Chinese government.

The Chinese government’s response was predictable and the “enemy of the people” was sent to prison for 4 years and 3 months for organising a crowd to block traffic. The communist fascists just released him but under house arrest – presumably for years more, and perhaps for the rest of his life.

Google ends censorship at Chinese operations – our Tiananmen Square Massacre articles spike!

Just hours ago, Google shut down its Chinese language portal and ended “voluntary” censorship of searches from the People’s Republic of China as a response to hacking and espionage against Google that is most certainly the work of the Communist-run Chinese government. (UK Telegraph article here)

Chinese authorities are struggling to regain control of the internet searches by their citizens – but they are obviously losing the battle as our little Barbados Free Press website has started to experience a tsunami of visits to our articles about China. If the numbers hold, BFP will experience thousands or even tens of thousands of new and unexpected visitors in the next few days.

Our thousands of new Chinese friends are arriving primarily after searching for the words “tiananmen square massacre” or “tiananmen square protest” and, most revealing: “tiananmen + democracy”, “China + human rights” and “China + democracy”.

Worldwide Big Picture: Hundreds of millions of new uncensored internet searches by Chinese citizens

As Caribbean blogs and websites go, Barbados Free Press is moderately successful but we’re nothing compared with the big guys. For instance, as the 500th most popular website in the world, Drudge Report gets over 3 million unique visitors a month while BFP takes over a year and a half to reach that number. So as successful as BFP is for a Caribbean blog, we’re just a hair on a flea on the internet dragon. Well – you get the point.

Yet BFP will see thousands or tens of thousands of new visitors from China in the next day or two. Think of what that means worldwide: internet censorship is not happening right now in China and a hundred million or more Chinese citizens are seeing the world on the net without their government-imposed limitations.

The Dream of Chinese Freedom is still alive!

The democracy movement that ended with the Tiananmen Square Massacre was fed by fax machines, pagers and face to face meetings. The internet didn’t exist as it does today. Who knows what could happen if our Chinese friends have the freedom to openly share ideas with each other on the internet?

History may view this Google freedom for Chinese citizens – even if it only lasts a few days – as one of the most important events of the era for China. You can bet that the elites of the Chinese Communist Party have a little more than mere concern in their guts today. That feeling they are experiencing is the beginning of fear – because the Communists know that in a free and fair exchange of ideas… they lose.

Our welcome to the ordinary people of China

We at Barbados Free Press are happy that you can join us and we hope that your new freedom continues. Below is a list of our most popular articles being viewed by people from China.

Many of the articles contain stories of human rights violations by the Communist government of your country. As you read our stories, please remember that our intent in exposing these human rights violations is to work towards more freedom for individual citizens of China.

You and your country have so much to be proud of. In many areas, China has come further and faster than any other country in the last few decades, but your progress has not been without cost to you and your ordinary fellow citizens. You also know that the main beneficiary of your labour is an entrenched group of political elites that has brutally repressed ordinary Chinese citizens who desire to be free and to progress as individuals and families.

To the ordinary people of China, Barbados Free Press says, “Welcome. Good Luck to you, and may God bless you, your family and your country.”

Barbados Police Receive Training From China – Chinese Law Enforcement Handbook Instructs How To Beat People Without Leaving Marks (Were I’Akobi’s Cops China Trained?)

china-barbados-police

Slippery Slopes Get Very Slippery Indeed

Officers of the Royal Barbados Police Force already receive training from China’s police both in Barbados and during exchanges in China. As Barbados Free Press has pointed out on numerous occasions, we don’t believe that Barbados police officers have much to learn from a country that drives tanks over teenagers, kidnaps pregnant women off the streets to force abortions upon them and routinely trains police officers in how to shoot prisoners in the head during public executions. Our Barbados Defence Force also receives Chinese training and equipment.

And now we have to ask if the Chinese authorities will be supplying our police officers with the latest textbook for city administration law enforcement squads. The Chengguan handbook instructs Chinese law enforcement officers in how to inflict pain upon citizens without drawing blood or leaving marks…

“In dealing with the subject, take care to leave no blood on the face, no wounds on the body, and that no people are in the vicinity.”

… From the Beijing Municipal Bureau of City Administration and Law Enforcement training textbook “The Practice of City Administrator Law Enforcement”

Did Any Barbados Police Officer Involved With The Death Of I’Akoki Receive Chinese Training?

Barbados Free Press will have much more to say about the illegal arrest of I’Akobi Maloney by Barbados police — an act that is all too common on this island as our police officers routinely exceed their authority in law and abuse the rights of citizens and members of the press.

But for now, we just want an answer from the Commissioner of Police…

Commissioner Dottin — Please inform the good citizens of Barbados whether any of the police officers involved with the death of I’Akobi Maloney, either at the scene or during the subsequent investigation, ever received training from China.
