It was great to hear George earlier on Wiltshire Radio speaking about tomorrow nights event, Blood on the Snows!……listen here to George’s Radio Interview (time: 01:11:00) As the UK tightens the relationship with China it is more important that we challenge China’s unacceptable regime of torture, not only their practicing of it but the manufacture and export of torture implements which fuel human rights violations in other countries (see Amnesty site).
