The democratic world is getting being pummelled by authoritarian regimes without opposition. One would have to wonder how and why we arrived at this juncture.

A dictator, from a line of ductators, (a fake democratic leader) PM Lee of Singapore today dared to lecture Joe Biden to not judge China on Ukraine and the Whitehouse stay silent.

Suppressing media in Hong Kong is long running practice in CCP, many examples like Jimmy lai still behind the bars for supporting pro-democracy movement. The word "Sedition" CCP is mentioning is actually freedom of expression which is suppressed in Hong Kong and mainland China.

Sounds like the treatment that Julian Assange got for exposing US war crimes. I hope he is not tortured and abused like the UK does. This is an opportunity for China to have a fair and transparent trial.

Sounds like the treatment that Julian Assange got for exposing US war crimes. I hope he is not tortured and abused like the UK does. This is an opportunity for China to have a fair and transparent trial.

Today marks Assange's third year of incarceration in the maximum security Belmarsh Prison in London. He's guilty of nothing except being a journalist and exposing American war crimes.

Get out if you can, as soon as you can. If you aren't imprisoned in a cell, Xi's Covid Zero policy will eventually see you imprisoned at home.
