Several hundred human rights protesters gathered Monday morning near Beijing’s South Railway Station to protest the country’s human rights violations.
They carried a banner welcoming Speaker Pelosi to China.
But, Speaker Pelosi is more interested in keeping the planet green this week.
She is attending an environmental conference in China this week and will not be addressing China’s human rights violations.
Protesters held up a large banner reading, “Welcome Pelosi. Pay close attention to human rights. SOS.”
