Twenty-five Tibetans have now set themselves on fire since March of last year, protesting what some call Communist Party violations of their rights. Many focus on the limitations that Party authorities place on their freedom to practice religion, and especially to pay respects to the Dalai Lama.

Yet, according to some Chinese authorities, the problems Tibetan protestors complain about are non-existent, unimportant, or, perhaps, simply a smokescreen for dark political motives. It’s an interpretation that very few in the world outside of China believe, yet seems to be common among Party members who speak on the issue.

Even as Party authorities put a lockdown in place in the Aba prefecture of Sichuan province, where the most Tibetan self-immolations have occurred, they held a press conference in Beijing on Wednesday, aiming to discredit the protest movement. Aba prefecture’s administrative head, Wu Zegang, called the protestors “outcasts” and “criminals”.

He also indicated that the painful deaths were part of a plot to split up China, and suggested that they were induced by cash payments from the Dalai Lama.

Meanwhile, Sichuan Communist Party Secretary Liu Qibao shared his view that “public complaints about cultural repression do not exist.” Despite the dozens of people giving their lives to protest the Party regime of which he is a part, Liu did not see any conflict in the area, claiming that “on the contrary, Tibetan culture is flourishing.”

Syria under pressure as Arab deadline expires

Euronews | Nov 25, 2011 | 448 views

As its crackdown on protesters continues, Syria has until the end of the day to sign an Arab deal letting monitors into the country or it could incur sanctions.

The Arab League deadline has officially expired but a source said the door would be left open to Damascus for a few extra hours.

The day after dozens were reported killed, amid an overall death toll of 3,500 according to the UN, the latest amateur footage appears to show no let-up in the onslaught

New Zealand government eyes landslide as polls close

Euronews | Nov 26, 2011 | 99 views

New Zealand’s prime minister looks to be heading back into government with a landslide win after voting closed in the country’s general election.

Exit polls are not allowed but John Key’s centre-right National Party could get an historic outright majority if surveys before the ballot are mirrored in the vote.

All of which bodes badly for Labour leader Phil Goff, hopeful to the last that his party would stage a late recovery.

Pak Policy Bash by Republicans

(Reuters) – The Republican presidential hopefuls criticized U.S. policy toward Pakistan and called for placing sanctions on Iran’s central bank in a lively and substantive foreign policy debate on Tuesday.

Newt Gingrich, a former House of Representatives speaker, gave a composed performance in the first debate since he surged to the top of polls. He backed an overhaul in immigration policy that would include a guest-worker program similar to plans condemned by conservatives in the past.

The debate, the second on foreign policy in the last 10 days, featured sharp exchanges on a broad range of issues, including anti-terrorism laws, Pakistan and Afghanistan.

The Republicans ganged up on Pakistan and questioned whether the United States could trust it. Texas Governor Rick Perry called Pakistan unworthy of U.S. aid because it had not done enough to help fight al Qaeda.

“To write a check to countries that are clearly not representing American interests is nonsensical,” said Perry, who has faded in polls after recent debate stumbles but had a stronger performance on Tuesday.

Representative Michele Bachmann, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, called Perry “highly naive” and said the United States should demand more from a “violent and unstable” Pakistan with nuclear weapons.

She called it “a nation that lies, that does everything possible that you could imagine wrong. At the same time they do share intelligence data with us regarding al Qaeda.”

Growing concern over China’s ‘disappeared’

From: AlJazeeraEnglish | Nov 10, 2011 | 302 views

Dozens of Chinese activists, lawyers, and bloggers have been victims of state-backed, extrajudicial detentions over the years, of which many have simply disappeared, not to be seen again for months.

Human Rights Watch says these disappearances are an alarming new trend which the government is refusing to address.

Many human rights organisations and activists are concerned that the country is currently working on a new draft of its criminal law that would make disappearances legal.
