Alla mina eget perspektiv

4th of June – the anniversary of the Tiananmen massacre (and China preside the UN security council).

23 years ago, the ruling party in Beijing commanded a massacre of peacefully demonstrating people on the Tiananmen square. A terrible crime to human kind and a terrible crime to the Chinese people. 23 years later, the same party is ruling, putting huge efforts to maintain its own power and system.

In memory of this, I will tweet out the UN declaration of Human Rights (in Chinese). Ironically, China took the rotating presidency of the UN security council three days ago, another reminder that the UN still has a lot to improve. As a Swede I have expectations that we will see some improvements when Jan Eliasson in a few weeks will be promoted the UN Deputy Secretary-General.
