China Aid Association held a press conference at 11 this morning in order to protest the Obama administration’s lack of concern for human rights violations in China. On her recent trip to China, Hillary Clinton refused to meet with groups in China who allege human rights violations. She maintains that such human rights violations would not interfere with economic and global warming priorities. Bob Fu of China Aid had the following response:
“It’s disheartening to hear Secretary Clinton’s remarks that human rights issue will be a ‘non-interference’ factor to other so-called crisis issues – the economy, environment and security, implying somehow that universal human rights or human lives are irrelevant or have nothing to do with the ‘three big items.’ On the contrary, a country disrespecting and disregarding of its own citizens’ basic rights and value will make the U.S. and the world less prosperous, more polluted and less safe.” – Bob Fu, ChinaAid
