Australian and Chinese officials will meet on Monday for the Twelfth Australia-China Human Rights Dialogue, originally scheduled for late last year. Meanwhile authorities in Lhasa have arrested dozens of Tibetans as part of a renewed military crackdown ahead of the 50th Anniversary of the 1959 Tibetan Uprising on 10 March. Also on Monday China will come under examination at the UN in Geneva. The Chinese Government has been accused of subverting the UN Human Rights Council’s Universal Periodic Review process.

“It said to ‘cut the libertarian bullsh—’ or I’d be sorry.”
