THE CHINESE CONSULATE

Van Courier: Last February, following years of legal wrangling, Falun Gong practitioners dismantled their shack outside the Chinese consulate on Granville and 16th Avenue.

Yet the consulate still stands--a grim and grey reminder of China's many sins, which include censoring political speech, silencing government critics, controlling the press, limiting Internet access, detaining without trial, torturing prisoners, restricting freedom of speech and assembly and association and religion, beating Tibetan monks and leading the world in capital punishment. With the possible exception of B.C. Place, the Chinese consulate is the most offensive structure in Vancouver.
