Empire State is Red and babies are drowned in buckets
The Empire State Building has been lit up with red lights. Labour Government ministers are hurrying from Brighton to London for a splendid banquet. Today Beijing has been closed and taken over for a great military parade, the people of the city have been advised to stay home and watch it on television. The reason for all of these festivities is the 60th anniversary of Communist China.
My house has a constant stream of illegal immigrants visiting the basement. One day one of the helpers came up to see, she was very distressed: torture and rape are common place for them to hear about. She just seen a Chinese woman who had fled her home and her first child because when she was about to give birth to her second child she was taken to hospital, she was left to give birth by herself, I am not going to go into all the details here but the child was born, when it cried a "midwife" came in and took the child, a boy, away to the next room. After a few minutes she returned and said the child was dead, she handed over the dead body, its head and shoulders were wet. After the midwife left, the mother went into the room there she found a bucket half filled with water, the baby had been drowned.
I have met several Chinese women who claim they have had forced abortions in the eighth ninth month. When are our great feminist leaders going to stand up for Chinese women's rights to give birth, let alone for Chinese children to have the right to life?
Still in China bishops and priests are imprisoned, torture and imprisonment are commonplace, civil rights are trampled on and the governments of the West do nothing!
