‘Irrational’ fear of revolution brings tighter controls, says activist – Daniel Kwan

From the South China Morning Post, via Asia Media:

The Chinese leadership has developed an “irrational fear” of so-called colour revolutions, leading to a tightening of controls over political freedom, human rights activist John Kamm said yesterday.

Mr. Kamm made the remark at a wide-ranging talk organised by the Asia Society in Hong Kong, during which he also predicted Beijing and the Vatican would resume ties by the first quarter of next year.

The activist, who has just finished a visit to China, said the Chinese leadership had become unnecessarily worried about recent regime changes in Central and Eastern Europe.
