This is why the UN stands for "Useless Nations" when it comes to human rights issues with the communist PRC regime.

Tibetans, Uyghurs, Taiwanese and others should learn this lesson well. The UN only protects its own paying members.

As much as we might hope that freedom and human rights would be given freely in this world. The reality is that they never are; if Tibet and others want to be free and have human rights they will have to keep the pressure up on their own if need be and grab it.

It would be nice if the UN was not useless here but more often than not they are. The UN has lost its moral mandate when it can do as it is told by the PRC state while millions suffer in Tibet and other impacted regions.

Subject: Chinese censorship at UN
Oct 29 2008 01:34 AM

It's terrible the UN has kowtowed to PRC pressure to censor its own website. The PRC censors its own media, including the internet. Now the PRC is censoring the UN's website but forcing the UN to remove a document that was submitted to the Committee Against Torture.

China can disagree w/ the document & allegations made against it but it should not be allowed to deny access to the document by the public. This is a document that was officially accepted by the UN Committee & should be made publicly available.

The UN's action here is shameful & in violation of the free speech rights of int'l law
