China, Olympics. Thursday notes.

10 Jan

China says: The true cause of conflict in Darfur is internal competition over resources, and activists should not try to shame Beijing into dropping its support for a Sudanese government accused of carrying out genocide.

China’s human rights record alone is enough to protest the Olympics, we don’t need to add their support of Khartoum, in their quest for oil and economic gain, to the mix in order to protest the games. Economic support for the people of Darfur, or help with a solution would be welcome. Economic incentive, to the very government which is at the heart of the conflict, or contribution of arms to perpetrators of a genocide, doesn’t count.
