Misery in China protested as MPs hear of China's problematic rise: Forum on China
As Tibetans formed the words “Enough” with their bodies—a statement on the recent suicides of 11 monks in Tibet, several of them in their teens—author Greg Autry described a pattern of incremental destruction he says the Chinese regime is inflicting on the Western world.
