Two *Must Read* News Articles!

Two very exciting and interesting news stories, one featuring Lhadon, and the other an amazing quote from within China: "The Chinese Miracle Will End Soon"!

From the Financial Times:
The battle has intensified at the Rubin. Protesters have created a parody website purporting to be the Rubin site and attacking the interpretation of the collection as Chinese propaganda. Although the site acknowledges that the Rubin's interpretations of sacred objects are an improvement on earlier showings, Lhadon Tethong, executive director of Students for a Free Tibet, sees collusion between the four museums and China's government. "They know they are participating in a propaganda exercise. They are allowing themselves to become a platform, part of the Chinese strategy."

From DER SPIEGEL:
The world has been dazzled in recent years by the
economic strides being made by China. But it has come
at a huge cost to the country's environment. Pollution
is a serious and costly problem. Pan Yue of the
ministry of the environment says these problems will
soon overwhelm the country and will create millions of
"environmental refugees."

    the FT article on the 'stolen treasures' show is good, but a little all over the place. the interview with China's deputy minister of the environment is astounding. it's extremely rare to see such truth-telling from Chinese gov't officials. it is an antidote to despair for all of those people who believe that China is utterly invincible.
