Dalai Lama raises spirits in Christchurch - by Keith Locke
Realising Cantabrians could do with a moral boost the Dalai Lama altered his schedule and fitted in a talk in Christchurch before his Australian tour. The Canterbury Arena was packed for the event. The only sour note was from the Chinese Embassy, which approached our government after they heard about the visit. Presumably, as they […] read moreJune 9, 2011 5:20 pm - 2 Comments
The Labour Party’s “Two Chinas” policy - by frog
It seems the Labour Party has its own current version of the historic “Two Chinas” policy – but with respect to Tibet. Here are Labour MPs Raymond Huo and Phil Twyford, definitely not singing from the same songsheet. I’m with Phil on this one. read moreJune 30, 2010 8:56 pm - 137 Comments
Stuff.co.nz says: Green MP Russel Norman had a Tibetan flag torn from his hands by a member of Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping’s entourage when he arrived at Parliament today. Dr Norman said he believed it was one of the vice president’s security guards. Arriving in a convoy of around six vehicles with a police […] read moreJune 18, 2010 2:36 pm - 51 Comments
Tibetan cause remembered at Parliament - by Keith Locke
The Tibetan flags being waved on Parliament’s lawn may have alerted passers by to the presence inside of high level Chinese delegation. The delegation was visiting to “update” MPs on ‘economic and social developments in Tibet.” I was happy to attend the official luncheon and be ‘updated’ by Mr Quingba Puncog, a Tibetan who is […] read moreMarch 26, 2010 12:03 pm - 6 Comments

The youth of today - by frog
I visited Parliament a couple of times on school trips as a child, but nothing as cool as this Hanmer Primary School story ever happened to me: Hanmer School teacher Katie Wenborn said the Year 7 and 8 students were eating lunch on [Parliament] lawn when a woman began talking about the [human rights in […] read moreAugust 7, 2008 2:07 pm - 36 Comments
The real Tibet - by frog
It seems, according to a Chinese delegation here in NZ this week, that we were mistaken about state violence in Tibet earlier this year: Delegation leader Shes-rab-nyi-ma, vice-president of Beijing’s Central University for Nationalities, said they wanted to correct erroneous reports of a violent crackdown on Tibet. The delegates wanted to show “the real picture” […] read moreJuly 29, 2008 10:39 am - 16 Comments

Keith at the Rally for Tibet - by frog
I hopped along to Frank Kitts park at noon today to support the Rally for Tibet. Keith Locke spoke passionately about the plight of Tibet and the lunacy of giving preferential trade status to a country with such a poor record in so many areas.

You would probably expect me to be jumping up and down about these poll figures: Asked if they supported New Zealand signing a free trade agreement with China, 44.7 per cent of those questioned in the DigiPoll survey said they did. Just about a third – 32.4 per cent – said no, while 22.9 per […] read moreMarch 31, 2008 9:54 am - 32 Comments
