Welcoming Wen

Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao arrived in Wellington this evening to be greeted by protestors. About 10 Falun Gong members protested outside Wellington Airport's military terminal, and another group was waiting for him at his hotel (the Intercontinental, if anybody wants to have some fun). Its good to see that we haven't greeted Wen with silence, and that people are letting him know of our human rights concerns even if the government isn't.

There's also supposed to be some sort of protest outside Parliament on Thursday, possibly organised by the Greens. I'll post details once I've dug them up.
