The Tibetan separatist movement is a red herring (post 1, post 2). Human rights issues in China deserve a far more comprehensive and incisive response from westerners.
For a more comprehensive picture see the 2007 Amnesty International Report on China for details of abuses:
- against human rights defenders
- against journalists and internet users
- against rural migrants
- against women
- against spiritual and religious groups
- use of death penalty against 68 offences, including non-violent ones
- use of torture, arbitrary detention and unfair trials
not forgetting specific abuses and applications of the above in relation to:
- North Korean refugees
- refusal to apply the UN Refugee Convention to Hong Kong
Supporting, or failing to distinguish, separatist movements that are contrary to international law is doing a disservice to the thousands whose lives are destroyed and ruined throughout China through human rights abuses.
