Global coalition of MPs say China is bullying Australia

Michael McLaren

Michael speaks with Senator Kimberly Kitching, Senator for Victoria & Shadow Assistant Minister for Government Accountability, who is part of a global coalition of MPs from democratic nations condemning China’s intimidation of two Australian journalists.

For the first time since 1973 Australia has no correspondents in China after the departure, orchestrated by diplomats in Beijing and Shanghai, of the ABC’s Bill Birtles and The Australian Financial Review’s Mike Smith.

This follows the arrest of Australian citizen Cheng Lei last month who was employed by China’s English-language state broadcaster CGTN as an anchor.
