TAIPEI, Taiwan (AP) — A second Chinese lawyer who represented a Hong Kong pro-democracy activist has been stripped of his license as Beijing attempts to crush opposition to its tighter control over the territory. Ren Quanniu, who represented one of 12 Hong Kong activists who tried to flee to Taiwan, said he had his license revoked by provincial judicial authorities. Ten of the 12 activists caught at sea in August were sentenced in December to prison terms ranging from seven months to three years for crossing the border illegally and organizing the crossings. The two other activists are minors. Two weeks ago, judicial officials revoked the license of another lawyer involved in the case.
Donald Trump and Barack Obama: Both hype up their economy, ignoring or minimizing the many negatives.Both have failed to address climate change. Few consider Trump’s coal or Obama’s fracking as positive solutions to this problem.They each have a similar foreign policy, including giving aid to Saudi Arabia, which many blame on Yemen’s humanitarian crisis.Both give very optimistic but questionable predictions about resources: Trump’s 1,000 years of coal claim and Obama’s 100 years of natural gas claim. I’d say at this point Trump has more in common with Obama than with the usual comparison (Hitler).Colin YunickCharltonMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsPolice: Schenectady woman tried to take car in Clifton Park hours after arrest, release in prior the… Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion
