Goons at the Hyatt

By johnboy 21 June 2010 27

see you, see me,

“fgzk” has sent in some pix of the protests outside the Hyatt for the Chinese Vice President’s visit (the Chinese can manage to turn up unlike the leaders of the current hegemon) with the following note:

Some of you may have seen the dual protest outside the Hyatt on the way to work. One group from the Falun Dufa and one group of young uni students with Red Chinese flags. Then there was the guy in the Mercedes who pulled up and started taking photos of the Falun Dufa speaker as they where leaving. When he saw me take a photo of him he pulled up next to me and said “why you take photo of me. This is my hobby”. He then proceeded to take multiple photos of me. The Chinese government provide really nice cars for there agents. I especially like how he has disguised it with the green a gold scarf. Agent or hobbiest? What do you think?

gospeedygo…. Im sure I wont be missed.

Merc guy does raise some interesting questions though. Hobbyist is an interesting slant. He and his car fail 101 intelligence gathering. His car is easily identifiable as proved above with multiple sightings. His number plate is personalised. Maybe, as I, he takes photos for an obscure web blog that loves to make outrageous assumptions and generalisations.

Maybe open, visible intimidation.

Then again, if I was to use assumptions I would guess he is a drug dealer. Expensive toys, black car. Unfixed damage to a door handle. Nice watch. Very, very long lens. I would slip him some cash.

Certainly isn’t subtle with the distictive personalised number plates and the flag out the window. Saw it parked outside Cream today about 2pm.

It is thanks to RIOTACT we can report these happenings. Our so-called “free press” seems to be less free than we think, always keeping Falun Gong reportage to the bare minimum.

Considering the fact that Falun Gong make up a pretty small percentage of the population, and are constantly non-violently protesting against the actions of a foreign government outside Australia, it is not really that surprising that the media got bored of reporting on it pretty quickly.

I am not trying to minimise their cause, I am simply pointing to the fact that (from the perspective of the average Canberran) it is a static situation. China oppresses these people, and they protest against such oppression.

Its an interesting reflection of fgzk on the car door, taking a photo of the dude taking a photo of him.

Agent, but not a very good one (or one to remind people that the chinese gov’t is always watching).

I saw that guy on Northbourne the other morning too. Asian guy in a nice Merc with a Socceroos scarf flattering in the wind stuck out like a virgin in a strip club.
