The world press is reporting sentencing of Chinese dissidents who fight for human rights to prison terms. The China press has not reported these trials or sentences to their own people anymore than they allow free access to the Internet. There was hope that China’s leadership would recognize that modern times require modern means of communication and openness to what is happening inside one’s own nation, but the world. Following are headlines that appeared in today’s China Daily:
China Attains Tort Law to Protect Civil Rights
Five Killed in Iran Protests
Long Awaited Civil Rights Law Gets Nod
Nigerian Charged In Xmas Airline Attack
One will note there is nothing about the trial and conviction of a civil rights leader IN CHINA!
