Wonder which one he'll pick

Vietnam's new Communist leader says he wants closer ties to the U.S. and the CCP (second item). Any guess which one he'll take when forced to choose?

Tibet campaigners want blog attention in early July

The World Tibet Day (multi-city coordinated event, observed annually since 1997) will be July 2 this year. See

At CSN, we've been approached by activists who also want to make a "Bloggers for World Tibet Day" occasion on July 6. See below.

July 6 is literally the birthday of His Holiness, the Dalai Lama. This year, he will turn 71. It seems the activists' idea is to apply that day, and try to get as much activity happening in the blogosphere as possible.

Below, I repost the email which came in to CSN.

Dear Friend,

Please join us to blog about Tibet on July 6, 2006 - 'World Tibet Day' which is the birthday of HH the Dalai Lama. We urge the blogging world to declare it as "Bloggers for World Tibet Day". Please spread the word and blog about Tibet on July 6th. Let us create a momentum for freedom of Tibet as never before. If you don't have a blog please visit us to know more about the struggles of Tibetans and see if you can help in any other ways.

We have set up a blog at to track all the information and provide one stop for all blogging activity about Tibet. We also want to provide authentic information about various Tibet organizations.

Sound the trumpet!

It is a great honor for me to christen the China Support Network blog (even if it is just to point everyone to the latest News of the Day).
