I've said it before and I'll say it again. China sucks.

Xi images defaced over woman's disappearance
The disappearance of a 29-year-old woman in Shanghai has sparked an online campaign, with social media users sharing defaced public images of Chinese President Xi Jinping.​
Dong Yaoqiong disappeared on 4 July after a video of her throwing black ink on a poster of the Chinese leader went viral.​
Dozens of images of Mr Xi smeared with ink have since been posted.​
Ms Dong was last seen live-streaming a video of herself defacing a public poster.​
“Behind me is a portrait of Xi Jinping. I want to say publicly that I oppose the tyranny of Xi Jinping’s dictatorship and the brain-control oppression imposed by the Chinese Communist Party,” she tells the camera.​
Artist Hua Yong was watching online and tweeted his concern for her safety.​
Now based in China’s southern Yunnan province, he was detained for criticising the government after documenting Beijing’s mass evictions of migrant workers last year.​
“She was definitely going to disappear, that was my first reaction to seeing her post!” he told SBS News.​
Before disappearing, Ms Dong reportedly tweeted an image of three men outside her home.​
“From her last tweet you can see through the peephole one plainclothes police and two uniformed police at her door,” Hua Yong claimed.​
“One hour later she was unreachable through her phone or Twitter. Soon after her tweets were deleted, then her account disappeared. Then I posted a tweet telling people to pay attention to what’s happening to her. I assume she no longer has her freedom.”​
Since President Xi came to power in 2012, the Communist Party has shown little tolerance for dissent. This year, term-limits on Xi Jinping’s leadership were scrapped and his philosophy known as ‘Xi Jinping thought’ was enshrined in China’s constitution.​
On the streets of Beijing, his emperor-like status is one few dare to challenge.​
“Papi Xi is the country’s leader, the boss,” one souvenir vendor told SBS News.​
Her customer added: “He’s the father of us all. That’s my feeling”.​
Human rights groups claim those who criticise Mr Xi or the Communist Party face indefinite detention, and can even be charged with subverting state power, a crime punishable with life imprisonment.​
Patrick Poon, a representative from Amnesty International’s Hong Kong office, said Ms Dong’s treatment is typical of China’s treatment of activists and dissidents.​
“For China, they don’t want to see their citizens criticise its state leader in such a manner. They would use every means to crack down on any freedom of expression in such areas.”​
A Twitter account named Communication Centre of Appealing reportedly said Ms Dong had been detained by police and was being held and questioned in Beijing.​
Shanghai’s security bureau has reportedly denied having any knowledge of Ms Dong’s case.​

Chinese president Xi Jinping has vowed for the first time that China should take the lead in shaping the “new world order” and safeguarding international security, one of the latest moves putting him in stark contrast to Donald Trump and the US president’s “America First” policy.

Xi had on numerous occasions called for China to play an important part in building the new world order. But during a Feb. 17 national security seminar in Beijing, he indicated China should “guide” the international community in the effort.

A Feb. 20 commentary (link in Chinese) by the Chinese Communist Party’s central party school, which trains officials, noted the distinction. It has since been widely shared by state-controlled media. News outlets dubbed Xi’s new approach the “Two Guides” (两个引导) policy, with the “two” referring to the new world order and international security. (China has an obsession with silly-sounding numbered policies.) “The overall trend of world multi-polarization, economic globalization, and democratization of international relations remains unchanged. We should guide the international community to jointly build a more just and reasonable new world order,” Xi was paraphrased by Xinhua (link in Chinese) as saying during last week’s seminar.

In another paragraph, the state newswire paraphrased Xi as saying “We should guide the international community to jointly maintain international security.” Xi’s new proposal has “profound meaning,” as his speech coincided with the annual Munich Security Conference and the G20 finance ministerial meeting, noted the commentary. It added that the Western-dominated world order is near its end as Western countries are showing less willingness and ability to interfere in global affairs—as evidenced by Trump’s isolationist foreign policy...

Don't let your politicians follow Australia's bad example RE China.

Here's a mere snippet of how China is subtly gaining control here:
2017 BBC news - why Australian universities are upsetting Chinese students
2016 ABC news - Darwin Port's 99 year lease to China
ABC news 2018 - Hillary Clinton warns of Chinese influence on Australian politics
2017 weekly times - China to become biggest foreign owner of Australian farmland

Story after story of spying by China on Australia embassies and monitoring Chinese immigrants here too.
They didn't need to invade us. They are buying us instead. :(

Now they've apparently taken her father away as well.

Police interrupt YouTube live stream of father of ‘missing’ Chinese woman who splashed ink on Xi Jinping photo
The father of a woman who splashed ink on a poster of Xi Jinping appears to have been taken away by police during a YouTube live-stream on Friday night.​
In a series of broadcasts this week, the father had been calling upon police to explain what crime his daughter had committed and to disclose where she is being held. On the evening the protest video was posted on Twitter last week, the woman said police were outside her door. Her account was deleted shortly afterwards, sparking fears that she was in police custody.​
Fellow Twitter users have since identified her as Dong Yaoqiong from Zhuzhou, Hunan.​
Her father Dong Jianbiao featured in a clip on Friday, streamed live by artist Hua Yong. They were interrupted by men knocking at the door. From the exchange that followed, they appeared to be plainclothes police officers who wanted to take Hua and Dong away for investigation. They did not respond when Hua asked for documentation.​
The video ended in chaos, with the men outside forcibly entering Hua’s residence. The camera swings wildly as Yong yells: “Do you have a search warrant? Do you have a search warrant?” It was the last video he posted.​
Daughter ‘missing’
Hua Yong was detained last year after documenting mass migrant evictions in Beijing, posted a series of live interviews with Dong’s father on Thursday. Hua had been voicing support for Dong on Twitter and in his live YouTube videos.​
Dong showed his ID card, household registration document, and family photos in the clips to prove that he was the father of Dong Yaoqiong.​
The 61-year-old coal miner from Zhuzhou, Hunan, said he did not know that his daughter was in trouble until police asked to speak to him on Sunday.​
They asked him about his daughter’s education and work history.​
“I said: ‘did something happen to my daughter?’ They said… your daughter [broke the law] by attacking state leaders. That’s what they said: attacking state leaders.”​
He said police declined to give him any documentation or to let him see his daughter. He also said he was not given information about whether she had been detained or the exact charges she was facing.​
“They didn’t tell me exactly what [her situation is] – just said she attacked state leaders.”​
Patrick Poon, China researcher for Amnesty International, told HKFP that “attacking state leaders” does not appear in China’s criminal law. Instead, the country’s constitution states that citizens have the right to criticise and make suggestions regarding state organs and functionaries, Poon said.​
“What the public security is saying on her case seems to suggest that they can define the law themselves,” he said.​
“First of all, she should be allowed to access to a lawyer of her own choice first, and she should be released immediately unless she’s charged with an internationally recognised crime. But so far, we haven’t seen the authorities are handling the case even in accordance with China’s Criminal Procedure Law.”​
‘Kidnapping by bandits’
Hua said Dong drove 26 hours from his home to Hua’s studio in Yunnan.​
He wrote a letter to the police in Shanghai and You County, his hometown. “Please tell me what law my daughter broke and where she is being held… if there are no procedures then it is a kidnapping carried out by bandits.”​
He spoke to the police in You County while he was filming a video.​
“I want to see my daughter. If she’s alive then I want to see her, if she’s dead I want to see her body,” he told them.​
“My daughter committed no crime,” he said.​
A woman who answered the phone at Shanghai’s Municipal Public Security Bureau told HKFP she was unable to provide information on the case. HKFP has contacted Hua and the Yunnan public security bureau for comment.​

these arent western countries, and the people have no real freedom of expression. (yet the progressive liberals hate the west and wish they were more like these socialist/communist states; even though they have so many more rights and liberties than those in other countries could only dream about).

Yes we have quite a history of invasion. The Aboriginals quite understandably view white people arriving here as invasion just as we are viewing too many immigrants as invasion right now.

The problem we have with Chinese people moving here is not superficial racism. We are feeling unsettled by too many people of one demographic buying everything and trying to influence Australian politicians to suit China's interests. If Australia does not stand up to China we will go down the same path as Hong Kong.
