The Tibet 15


Today's Independent carries the story that 15 monks who sparked the initial protests in Lhasa, two weeks ago, remain missing after being "picked up" by the security services.

Their offence was giving out leaflets and waving a Tibetan flag.

This surely puts our own freedoms and the freedoms accorded to those who bring real threats to our country ( e.g. those who incite terrorism) in perspective.

These monks were entirely peaceful but by speaking out they have been made to disappear by Beijing....
