Jake Red Dorman's curator insight, November 25, 1:13 PM

It is clear that if the Chinese officials didn't want to talk to these kids than they would find a way not to talk to them, but limiting their travel to Beijing is so stupid of them. Obviously stopping them from traveling would capture more global attention and would also make the Chinese government seem scared of three college kids. Why couldn't they have just let them come to their city knock on their door, and say no comment like everyone else in the world who doesn't want to be bothered by questions? This to me just makes the Chinese government look terrible and it brings more attention to the Chinese government than just not answering these kids’ questions.
