Charter 08 and reading about human rights

Filed under: — Alan Baumler @ 7:29 am

The big news from China is the release of Charter 08 The charter is being released now because it is the 60th anniversary of the UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and, perhaps in part because A Ku Indeed and Tang Dynasty Times are starting a reading group on Daniel Bell’s East Meets West: Human Rights and Democracy in East Asia. So if you are in the mood to talk democracy and human rights, now is the time.
