China Tells Kerry to Bugger Off- Lulz

WASHINGTON: U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Wednesday called for Hong Kong to show restraint toward pro-democracy protesters, while his Chinese counterpart said countries should not meddle in China's internal affairs.

"The Chinese government has very formally and clearly stated its position. Hong Kong affairs are China's internal affairs. All countries should respect China's sovereignty," Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said in remarks before meetings with Kerry at the State Department.

Wang is the highest-level official to comment on Hong Kong's massive protests.

Seriously, when will westerners learn to stay the fuck out of other countries business, and fix our own issues.

Our protest go pretty much ignored in the states, yet we are all up in china telling their government how to handle their protesters

Re: China Tells Kerry to Bugger Off- Lulz

The massive democracy*protests*in Hong Kong—and violent police crackdown early on Monday morning, including*use of tear-gas canisters and batons—are testing not only the resolve of tens of thousands of student demonstrators, but also the effectiveness of Beijing’s sprawling censorship apparatus. As China’s Communist Party is discovering, in the wake of a major event or protest, not even the Great Firewall can fully stop information from flowing.

Sometime late on Sunday night, Instagram wasblocked*in mainland China, presumably to stop images from the tear gas-filled streets of downtown Hong Kong from being shared on the popular social network.*Facebook*and*Twitterremain blocked in the mainland, as are the websites of the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg, Bloomberg Businessweek, and several other foreign media companies.*Sina Weibo, the Twitter-like social network, isincreasingly censored. Tencent’s Weixin (“WeChat”) social network is also now monitored; on Monday, friends sharing information through private small groups on Weixin noticed comments about the Hong Kong protests were mysteriously deleted.

Meanwhile, China’s state-controlled media were ordered not to file stories on the Hong Kong protests, other than limited and carefully worded wire reports from the Xinhua News Agency. A directive issued on Sunday by China’s Propaganda Ministry (and obtained by the Hong Kong-U.S. watchdog website*China Digital Times) read: “All websites must immediately clear away information about Hong Kong students violently assaulting the government and about ‘Occupy Central.’ … Strictly manage interactive channels, and resolutely delete harmful information.”

And yet, in spite of the best efforts of the Chinese government to block information about unrest in Hong Kong from reaching the mainland, many people interviewed on Monday morning in Beijing and other Chinese cities knew about the demonstrations. But the level of detail to which they had access varied widely, as did opinions about the virtue of the protests and what might happen next. Most said they initially heard the news through social media, reading posts before censors deleted them.

Within mainland China, some said they were cheering on Hong Kong’s democracy activists and wished their Chinese peers had the same courage to fight for “freedom.” Others wondered whether public demonstrations were futile and darkly recalled the brutal 1989 Tiananmen Square crackdown. Still others said the yawning antagonism between mainlanders and Hong Kongers, fueled by quarrels over the influx of mainland tourists and capital into the islands in recent years, meant they felt limited sympathy for Hong Kong’s struggles.

While admiring the Hong Kong protesters—“I think they want freedom very strongly”—Sun Yu, a personal trainer at a Beijing gym, said he couldn’t imagine a similar wave of protests for free elections happening anytime soon in Beijing. “Maybe 50 years later, or maybe 100 years later.”

When China starts shutting Media down, probably the best thing the protesters should do is go home and go back to farming game currency.

Re: China Tells Kerry to Bugger Off- Lulz

It seems to me the internet has allowed so much of the world to see what they're missing. And the uprisings throughout the world for "freedom" have partially happened because information gets to people who have spent decades even centuries in the dark to the rest of the world. It's the you don't miss what you don't know saying.

You've got to wonder if we're using some variation of an Internet version of the old "Radio Free Europe" to get these folks this stirred up. I think it's great...the more China looks like the Communist Dictatorship that it is, the better it is for the US.

Are they a couple? I'm curious how they treat immigrant couples who want to have children.
