Human Rights official comes, and the police are on duty – Liu Xiaobo

From Observe China (in Chinese), translated by EastSouthWestNorth:

In March this year, United States Secretary of State Condeleeza Rice make a whirlwind visit to China. The police stood guard downstairs before and during her visit. Therefore, I wrote the short essay: “Rice is here, and the police are on duty.” My purposes were (1) to expose the discrepancy between words and deeds of the authorities on human rights; (2) to protest the police restricting my personal freedom; (3) to urge the authorities not to play this type of game.

This government is strong and powerful, but it is slapping itself in the face by being so hypocritical and weak.

Regrettably, on August 29, United Nations high commissioner on human rights Louise Arbour came to Beijing and the government slapped itself in the face again.
