China's human rights record and economic clout take centre stage on International Human Rights Day

by JR Guerrero

See video

In commemoration of International Human Rights Day, various communities in Vancouver gathered together to protest China's boycott of the Nobel Peace Prize award to Chinese dissident Liu Xiao Bo. Subsequent boycotts from 19 different countries followed suit due to China's pressure on these governments. Vancouver Tibetans, Burmese, Chinese, and East Turkestan Uyghurs gathered in front of the Chinese Consulate to renounce China's human rights record and set out a plea to all Canadians.

i have taken time off from my youth work to focus on filmmaking. i am teaching myself the many layers of muti media, i at some point would like to be on the cutting edge of technology and communications. i would like to someday use these skills to help empower the many communities that i belong. i am scheduled to go to south america for a 3 month film and volunteer excursion trip in january 2011, and use this experience to enrich my knowledge and experience with community work from a global perspective.
