I knew there was something I forgot to do. Put this uncensor China information on my website. I think we were supposed to do this the other day when the 10 day countdown to the olympics started. Apologies for lateness.

I can’t get the script to work, so I give you this:

<object type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” height=”248″ width=”180″ data=”http://action.uncensor.com.au/media/swf/cici_index.swf”></object>

It will all make much more sense if you got Amnesty’s uncensor website.

On a not unrelated note, I see my eldest boy’s name is on the whiteboard in the list of people who haven’t done their homework yet. He is the kind of person who likes to do the right thing and also doesn’t like to draw attention to himself.

But homework was to find five things made in China. I explained to him that I try not to buy too many things made in China unless I know they’re fair trade by which I mean people should not just be paid fairly, but also treated with respect. But then I had to explain to him that I don’t generally support blanket boycotts as such, because they fail to take account of the complexities of situations. Poor kid. No wonder he gave up on it.
