UK cut aid to China
No complaints from me.
There was an absolutely shocking letter from a retired diplomat in the Times this week, I 'm sorry I didn't keep it, but I felt physically sick after reading.
In it he said that part of the systematic incarceration of the Uyghurs and other minority groups was for use as a source of organs for transplant. He said that all the people incarcerated had their blood and tissue typing and DNA recorded as a resource for treatment of other, presumably deserving, Chinese patients, and they were used for live transplant.
If this is true how can we have ANYTHING to do with these awful people in power?
Why isn't there a huge outcry about this?
I now look at everything I buy and reject anything Chinese as far as possible.
I defy anyone reading this to shrug and turn away.
You seem to be under the impression that the money simply goes to the government?Why on earth are we giving any aid to China ? According to reports, they seem to be able to buy up the world, including vast areas of Africa preventing the planting of much needed crops to sustain the population there. That's a scandal.
Why on earth not - surely they are two different things - I very much doubt that human rights organisations are NGOs.The Chinese Government and Human Rights shouldn’t even be used in the same sentence.
Of course the NGOs etc would protest. how else do they get paid?You seem to be under the impression that the money simply goes to the government?
It doesent work like that and many NGOs (over 200 apparently?) have come out condeming the move
I am open minded as I have never properly researched it

And while we're on the subject IMO Navalny supporters are also deserving of our support.
All the more reason to support the oppressed.Are you having a laugh or what? NGOs get nowhere in China apart from being arrested or kicked out of the country.
WHO? Covid? Connection to topic is unclear.China listens to nobody when it comes to the running of their country. Ask the WHO how they got on with China and Covid.....
The current topic is giving aid to humanitarian protest groups so well on topic. If I am wrong on this I am open to correction by a Mod.Navalny isn’t the subject unless he’s been transferred to a prison in China.

You aren’t great on the Q & A thing.No it isn’t, it’s about China. We know you like to introduce Russia into everything but I can assure you, this thread is about China.
The treatment of the WHO over their investigation into Covid in China is no different to the run around NGOs get in that country......they get nowhere.
China can only be changed from within - that's why protest groups need support.The West are dreaming if they think they can somehow change China.
