Denying Peace

The Chinese government believes that boycotting the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony tomorrow will nullify its meaning. In fact, it will do the opposite as it will magnify to the entire world that China is still far from being a country that believes in human rights or even has a basic understanding of what the word “peace” means.

No matter how many peace prizes the Chinese government wants to conjure and award, it still does not take away the simple fact that Liu Xiaobo has won the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize. The rest of the world knows it; China is just choosing to deny it.
