China's pissed; who cares?

China made their anger known when President Bush met with the Dalai Lama. Liu Jianchao (China's Foreign Ministry spokesman) said that it was "a gross interference in China's internal affairs" and that it was offensive to the Chinese people.

Thankfully, Bush went ahead with the meeting and yesterday H.H. the Dalai Lama was presented with the US Congressional Gold Medal. But my question is: Why hasn't anyone done anything about China. Their human rights violations are obvious, and yet there's no talk of doing anything about it.

Of course, even if the government doesn't find it necessary to help the people living under the oppressive People's Republic of China, there are things you can do.
Race for Tibet
Boycott Made in China
