South China Sea Conflict, Southeast Asia, 2013-2015

Taken on 2015-05-31 *

Disputes over waters and islands in the South China Sea has been going on for years. China claims to have historical claims to 80 percent of waters and land in the South China Sea. Under international law, China has no claims to these areas. China has taken a more aggressive approach in recent times, taking over the Spratly Island, Parcel Islands, and continues to build their own islands for military purposes.

Human Rights Protest, Hong Kong, July 2012

Taken on 2012-07-01

The Hong Kong 1 July protests (Chinese: 七一遊行) is an annual protest rally originally led by the Civil Human Rights Front since the 1997 handover on the HKSAR establishment day. However, it was not until 2003 that the march drew large public attention by opposing the legislation of Basic Law Article 23. The 2003 protest, with 500,000 marchers, was the largest protest seen in Hong Kong since the 1997 handover. Prior to this, only the 21 May 1989 pro-democracy protest drew more people with 1.5 million marchers in Hong Kong sympathizing with the participants of the Tiananmen Square protests of 1989. The introduction of Article 23 legislation was temporarily shelved because of the protest. Since then, the 1 July marches have been held every year as a channel to demand for democracy, universal suffrage, rights of minorities, protection of freedom of speech and a variety of other political concerns.

This opportunity was available to the Communists because although Nationalist representatives were not invited to Yalta, they had been consulted and had agreed to the Soviet invasion of Manchuria in the belief that the Soviet Union would deal only with the Nationalist government after the war."
