Chinese police stop lorry carrying 386 dogs to slaughter at canine-meat festival – video

Chinese police pulled over a lorry carrying 386 dogs to slaughter at the annual dog-meat festival in the southern Chinese city of Yulin, which was scheduled to start on Tuesday – the summer solstice.  Lin Xiong, one of the activists who watched the vehicle being pulled over, said: ‘It was horrifying to see so many dogs in such an appalling state, it was like a truck from hell for these poor animals.’ In 2020, China’s ministry for agriculture and rural affairs ruled that dogs were companion animals, not ‘livestock’ for…

Russia becomes China’s top oil supplier amid Ukraine war sanctions

China’s crude oil imports from Russia soared by 55% from a year earlier to a record level in May, displacing Saudi Arabia as the top supplier, as refiners cashed in on discounted supplies amid sanctions on Moscow over its invasion of Ukraine. Imports of Russian oil, including supplies pumped via the east Siberia Pacific pipeline and seaborne shipments, totalled nearly 8.42m tonnes, according to data on Monday from the Chinese general administration of customs.

ukraine war russia becomes chinas biggest oil supplier

Meanwhile, Ukraine’s Trade Representative has a stark warning for those who choose to buy more from Russia.

China carries out anti-missile tests amid opposition to US systems in South Korea

China carried out a test of “ground-based midcourse anti-missile intercept technology” that “achieved its expected purpose”, the defence ministry in Beijing has said, describing it as defensive and not aimed at any country.

hong kong is unrecognizable after 2 years under the national security law

Advertisement On June 10, FactWire announced that it was shutting down with immediate effect, becoming the tenth Hong Kong news organization to close in less than 12 months.

But just as many feared when Beijing imposed the National Security Law (NSL) on June 30, 2020, the landscape for free expression in Hong Kong is now increasingly desolate. Under the NSL, Hong Kong’s total score in…

‘Oh my God, buy it!’ China’s livestream shopping stars risk being censored

Hua Shao stands knee-deep in water at the edge of the sea, behind a table piled high with large crabs. The famous Chinese TV host is sweaty, sunburnt and laughing with a co-host as a red-and-blue fishing boat bobs behind them. “The sea-ears taste so good, it must have been collected from a sea area where the water is very clear,” he tells more than 100,000 people who are watching online. It’s the eve of “618”, one of China’s biggest retail festivals, which are increasingly driven by the weird world…

the complex nationalism of chinas gen z

Advertisement China’s Gen-Z (defined loosely as individuals born after 1996) tends to be associated with images of ferocious, vocal, and unyieldingly nationalistic supporters of the country and regime. In his incisive ethnography of China’s youth in the aftermath of the late 1980s era of brief political liberalization and contentious politics, Alec Ash remarks that “the newest Chinese youth, born in the 2000s, are also different, formed by a stronger and more nationalistic China” – though Ash caveats that “the diversity is still there.” Renowned IR expert and intellectual Yan Xuetong…
