    Beijing Has No Choice but to Buy Australia’s Iron Ore: Economist
    Despite politically motivated trade sanctions on Australian goods, Beijing has been left buying Australia’s expensive iron ore by the boatload. Professor of Economics at the University of New South Wales (UNSW), Richard Holden, said that Canberra holds a great deal of influence over Beijing, who has nowhere else to turn to meet its ravenous iron ore demand, even if it wanted to. “We’ve actually got quite a lot of leverage with China in this instance, which is that they need a lot of iron ore,” Holden told The Epoch Times. “And they don’t buy iron ore from us because they want to be particularly nice to Australia.” “They buy it because we produce a lot of it, we produce it very efficiently and effectively, and we don’t have some of the situations that have led to the iron ore price going up so much, like when Brazil had so many issues with supply.” Brazil, China’s other primary source for iron ore, has been forced to reduce its production since earlier this year after severe rains and floods severely impacted mining site output. Exacerbated by a lack of supply, China’s unabated demand for the mineral had propelled iron ore prices to an unprecedented US$200 per tonne in May. It continued to stay above that amount throughout June. A man works in front of a furnace at a steel plant of Dalian Special Steel Co Ltd. in Dalian, Liaoning Province, China, on June 20, 2018. (Reuters)The result has seen Australia’s economic lifeblood—it’s export industry—surpass a record $40 billion (US$30 billion) in June, of which more than a third—or around $15 billion (US$11 billion)—was from iron ore shipments to China alone. However, Holden warned that Beijing would not hesitate to switch to a new source of iron ore should the opportunity arise, particularly given it had previously done just that after slapping sanctions on Australian wine, barley, beef, and lobsters. “I think China’s demonstrated in recent times a willingness to use that leverage—they’ve done it with other types of export, where it didn’t matter that much to Chinese consumers whether they were drinking French wine or Chilean wine.” “If that happens, I’d be very worried,” Holden said. “How likely is it to happen? I think probably not that likely.” Beijing had previously threatened to diversify its sourcing of iron ore, and last month signed a deal that could oversee the development of a massive project in Africa that could deliver 100 million tonnes of iron ore per year.

(Alfred Cheng Jin/Reuters)Australian Strategic Policy Institute Director of Defence, Strategy and National Security, Michael Shoebridge, argued that Australian iron ore had been protected from “Chinese state coercion” because of its overwhelming value to China’s own economy. China, the world’s biggest steelmaker, utilises iron in the production of steel, which sees applications ranging from the construction industry to military-class submarines. Shoebridge also pointed out that African iron ore mines tended to underperform compared with Australia’s refined and highly advanced production methods. “The reliability and scale of other producers have not been able to match Australian suppliers, and much of this is unlikely to change fast—sovereign risk in a number of African states remains an enduring problem,” Shoebridge told The Epoch Times in an email. “Australia’s comparative advantages from the nature of the deposits and the high technology techniques of the mining companies make Australia the highest volume, most globally competitive producer of iron ore. That is an enduring advantage supported by continual investment,” he said.

    Delta Variant Confirmed in China’s Nanjing City
    Local health authorities announced that the Delta variant was detected in China’s eastern mega-city Nanjing, Jiangsu Province, in the latest outbreak of COVID-19 caused by the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus. On July 28, 47 new cases were reported, pushing the total local transmissions to 153. Many of the infected individuals had already received doses of China’s domestically produced vaccine. Most cases in the latest outbreak were related to the city’s Lukou Airport, according to local authorities. The first nine cases were found when airport staff received nucleic acid tests on July 20. More airport workers and their close contacts tested positive, following two rounds of mass tests of Nanjing’s 9 million citizens. The top CCP liaison for Eastern Airport, Feng Jun, was fired after the outbreak. Official data shows much of the airport staff had received China vaccines by May. Eastern Airport, the parent company of Lukou Airport, said on May 12 that over 90 percent of its staff had received vaccines. Nanjing Airport also reported an above 90 percent vaccination rate at that time. Shao Yiming, a researcher at the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, told domestic media on June 7 that Chinese-made vaccines are for “prevention of symptom development,” instead of “preventing infections.” Local citizens are asked to stay at home and have been advised to go out only if it’s essential. People delivering food or packages were restricted from entering residential communities. Nanjing closed movie theatres, gymnasiums, indoor swimming pools, and other public places. Limited people are allowed to enter shopping malls and supermarkets. Health authorities of five provinces have announced cases related to the Nanjing outbreak. Many of the cases in other provinces such as Guangdong, Sichuan, Liaoning, and Anhui are asymptotic or with minor symptoms. Earlier in July, China’s highly inoculated city of Ruili, in Guangxi Province neighboring Myanmar (formerly Burma), was forced to lock down after the Delta variant was detected. Most of the population had received at least one dose of the China-made vaccine, and at least half of the population in Ruili received the single-dose CanSino vaccine.

    Wives’ Searches for Loved Ones in China Floods End in Tragedy
    In the aftermath of a disaster, searching for, and sometimes finding a lost loved one is the most difficult point on the path to recovery. When deadly floods were inundating the city of Zhengzhou in China on July 20, a local subway line was still in operation. The service was brought to an abrupt halt when it was almost completely submerged under water. Two widows have shared their heartbreaking stories about what they witnessed at Subway Line 5 on July 20. Both had found the bodies of their husbands after Zhengzhou Metro agreed to drain floodwaters from its submerged tunnel. While some families still remain hopeful as they continue to search for their loved ones, these two women have already received their tragic closure a week after the disaster. The flood struck Zhengzhou on July 20, when the regime ordered a nearby reservoir to drain its water just as as heavy rain hit central China’s transportation hub but without alerting the city. Floodwaters entered the still-operating metro system, inundating line 5, which left hundreds of passengers trapped for over two hours in what, for some, became a watery grave. More bodies have been found among those who were washed away as they tried to flee the metro train or station. On July 27, the regime announced a total of 14 deaths at metro line 5, which include the husbands of the two widows found on July 25 and 26. On the same day, the Henan Provincial government said that the total death toll of the flood in the province was 71. It’s unclear how many people are still trapped inside the flood in metro line 5. By press time, a large number of posts for missing persons was posted on the social media group “Henan Heavy Rain Mutual Assistance.” Last Call Received Sha Tao, one of the husbands who lost his life on July 26, was several days away from his 34th birthday. “I finally saw him at the funeral home. He was lying inside a freezer box, marked anonymous. From today, I don’t have a husband, my daughter doesn’t have a father, and our parents don’t have a son,” his wife wrote on her Weibo account, a popular Chinese social media platform. She did not provide her name. Sha’s wife described the gruesome reality of seeing her husband’s body after five days of water damage. She had begun her desperate search for her husband on the evening of July 20, calling family members, friends, city officials, police, the media, and posting social media for help. None of the government entities assisted her. She went to different hospitals and funeral homes to search for her husband, but was unable to find her loved one. She told local news outlet Jimu on July 21: “He called me yesterday afternoon after 6:00 p.m., and asked me to call the police for help.” Sha was riding Line 5 on his way home. As he spoke to his wife, the metro train had stopped between stations, and the floodwater was already ankle deep. “Then, I couldn’t reach him anymore,” his wife wrote. “If we—family members—didn’t keep asking Zhengzhou metro to drain the floodwater for rescue efforts, I don’t know when Sha Tao’s body would have been found,” she wrote on Weibo. “Zhengzhou metro made a series of big mistakes … [they] must take major responsibility.” She continued that the metro company didn’t stop their operations in time, didn’t make efforts to disperse passengers until over an hour after flooding was evident, didn’t report deaths on time, and didn’t make attempts to rescue passengers in good time. Rescuers from Jiangsu Province are searching inside metro line 5, which was flooded in Zhengzhou, central China’s Henan Province on July 26, 2021. (STR/AFP via Getty Images)She thanked Sha’s classmates, colleagues, friends, and a large number of online strangers in Zhengzhou for their support. She said that they gave her and her family the clues that they needed to finally find Sha’s body. Sha Tao is survived by his wife and infant daughter. The Pain ‘Is Indescribable’ From July 22 to July 25, the sound of a woman’s voice was repeatedly heard on a megaphone resonating through the submerged metro tunnel. Her voice called out his name, “Zou Deqiang, you have never disappointed me! … Hubby, Hold on! I’m coming.” Zou, 38, had traveled from Shanghai to Zhengzhou for a business trip. His body was found in the subway tunnel on July 25. The voice on the megaphone was Zou’s wife, surname Bai. She immediately began the nearly 600-mile journey from Shanghai to Zhengzhou on the evening of July 20, hours after realising that Zou was missing. “I asked for help from police and all the professional rescue groups I could reach, but couldn’t find any support,” Bai told news outlet Qihuan on July 23. “So, I recorded this audio and asked the metro staff to play it inside the submerged tunnel to encourage Zou.” Bai held onto hope that Zou could survive the flood. According to Zou’s colleague Wang, they two took the metro together on the afternoon of July 20. They were riding in the last car when floodwater stoppe

    ‘Pathetic and Disgraceful’: Lawmakers Blast Coca-Cola, Visa, Airbnb for Supporting Beijing ‘Genocide Olympics’
    Coca-Cola, Airbnb, Procter & Gamble, and Visa—all U.S. sponsors of the 2022 Beijing Olympics—have proudly declared that they support human rights globally. But that support is less clear when it comes to addressing the Chinese communist regime’s gross rights violations. At a July 27 congressional hearing on corporate sponsorship of the Games, representatives from the U.S.-based sponsors declined to take a stance on whether they would support moving the Olympics to a different location or postponing them over the Chinese regime’s human rights abuses. All—with the exception of a fifth witness, Intel—said they had no involvement in the site selection. “But as a human being and as somebody as a corporation that believes in human rights, it seems to me that you have a moral responsibility to be very clear,” said Rep. Chris Smith (R-N.J.), noting the allegations of sexual assault, forced abortion and sterilization, and other torture committed inside concentration camps in China’s Xinjiang Province. “I’m baffled and disappointed that you can’t just say, ‘Move the game.’” A woman holds a placard during a protest against Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics by Tibetan and Uyghur activists in front of the Olympics Museum in Lausanne as some 200 participants took part in the protest on June 23, 2021. (Fabrice Coffrini/AFP via Getty Images)Andrea Fairchild, senior vice president of global sponsorship strategy at Visa Inc., responded, “As long as the governments are allowing the athletes to attend the games, we will be there to support and sponsor them.” Asked whether they agree with the U.S. government’s determination that the regime is committing genocide against the Uyghur population in Xinjiang, the only company representative to respond in the affirmative was Steve Rodgers, executive vice president and general counsel of Intel. “I’ve read the State Department report. I’ve studied it, and I believe its conclusions,” Rodgers said, adding that Intel had no business operations in Xinjiang even before the January designation. The other four executives said they respected the government’s decision, but they refused to project their views.

(Fabrice Coffrini/AFP via Getty Images)Hypocrisy Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), who praised Rodgers for his “straight answer,” pronounced what he saw to be “the most pathetic and disgraceful hearing in which I’ve participated in eight years.” “Every one of you, with the exception, on occasion, of Mr. Rodgers, were sent here with orders not to say anything that could offend the Chinese Communist Party,” he said. David Holyoke, Airbnb’s head of the Olympics and Paralympics partnership, drew a rebuke from Rep. Tom Malinowski (D-N.J.) for not being more vocal about Beijing’s denial of passports and identification documents to Uyghurs and Tibetans, which prevents them from traveling or finding accommodation. “You are just completely absolving yourself of responsibility for being complicit in abject discrimination,” Malinowski said when the Airbnb executive said the company’s “policies do not require hosts to violate local laws.” Rep. Tom Malinowski speaks as U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken testifies before the House Committee on Foreign Affairs on The Biden Administration’s Priorities for U.S. Foreign Policy on Capitol Hill in Washington, on March 10, 2021. (Ken Cedeno-Pool/Getty Images)Coca-Cola fared no better. Multiple lawmakers criticized the contrast between the corporation’s silence on human rights abuses in China and its CEO’s open opposition to the newly enacted voting law in the firm’s home state of Georgia. Asked repeatedly whether the company would specifically condemn the regime’s practice of holding people in concentration camps, Paul Lalli, global vice president for human rights at Coca-Cola, said, “We respect all human rights,” without specifically naming China. “I just think this is stunning,” Malinowski said, adding that it’s “absolutely clear” that “the only reason” for the company’s reticence is to protect its profits in China. “You are afraid of them in a way that you are not afraid of critics in the United States. I think that’s shameful,” he told the Coca-Cola representative.

    India’s ‘Peaceful Coexistence’ With China ‘Long Gone:’ Expert
    Washington and New Delhi are deepening their relationship as both countries face growing threats posed by an increasingly assertive Beijing. U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken met with Indian External Affairs Minister Dr. S. Jaishankar and Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi on July 28 to discuss “Indo-Pacific engagement, shared regional security interests, [and] shared democratic values.” While the officials did not explicitly identify Beijing, the Chinese regime loomed large as the two sides emphasized a commitment to work together on issues from defense to COVID-19 vaccine distribution. “I welcome President Biden’s strong commitment to strengthen the India-U.S. Strategic Partnership, which is anchored in our shared democratic values and is a force for global good,” Modi wrote in a tweet following his meeting with Blinken. Amrita Jash, research fellow at Indian think tank Centre for Land Warfare Studies (CLAWS) and author of “The Concept of Active Defence in China’s Military Strategy,” said that solidarity against intensifying threats from authoritarian China is a “cause which binds” the United States, India, and other countries in the region and beyond. Following the deadly Galwan Valley border clash between the Indian and Chinese armies in 2020, “peaceful coexistence [between India and China] is long gone,” she told The Epoch Times in an interview. Testing India’s Resolve India and China share a disputed border of more than 2,100 miles known as the “Line of Actual Control” (LAC), and China “consistently tries to test India’s resolve and attempts to provoke” at the LAC, Jash said. India and China fought a month-long border war in 1962, and while tension has remained along the LAC since then, it has notably increased in the last several years. A standoff between India and China occurred in 2017 at Doklam—near the intersection of the disputed borders of India, China, and Bhutan—and a deadly skirmish was fought with clubs and other “Stone Age” weapons in June 2020 in the Galwan Valley, along India’s eastern Ladakh region border with China. The 2017 Doklam standoff began when China attempted to change the status quo near the LAC by extending an existing road in disputed territory also claimed by India’s neighbor and ally, the Kingdom of Bhutan, a landlocked nation in the Himalayas with a population of less than one million. Indian troops intervened on Bhutan’s behalf to stop extension of the road, and after facing off for more than a month, Indian and Chinese troops withdrew to previous positions. “India stood tall,” in the Doklam standoff, Jash said. In June 2020, India-China relations reached a new low when a vicious clash broke out near the LAC in the Galwan Valley, resulting in the deaths of at least 20 Indian soldiers and an unknown number of Chinese soldiers. India and China had formally agreed that soldiers from both sides are not allowed to use firearms in standoffs along the LAC. But during the 2020 skirmish, Chinese soldiers utilized “Stone Age” weapons that they had prepared, including metal batons wrapped in barbed wire and clubs embedded with nails. “It’s very evident that China is the instigator,” Jash said, adding that the Chinese regime’s use of weapons “has broken all protocols” between India and China along the LAC. In her book, Jash writes, “China’s behavioral pattern along the India-China border … complies with its ‘salami-slicing’ strategy as witnessed in the case of [the] South China Sea, wherein it encroaches and takes control of disputed areas … China’s repeated acts of transgression can be attributed to its ‘bit-by-bit’ policy of securing its claims, a way to increasingly test India’s resolve.” India, however, is standing firm against China’s tests and incursions, Jash said. “The way China’s trying to continuously change the status quo is something that is disturbing,” she said. “Given the current situation … no one is going to give an inch of land.” ‘What Does China Have to Give?’ Jash said that while authoritarian China attempts to project strength along the India-China border, it is faced with major internal and external problems that fundamentally threaten the one-party rule of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). “China is troubled in every quarter,” she said. “[In the] South China Sea, East China Sea, [along the] India-China border.” Internal problems include slowing economic growth and widespread resistance to CCP rule in Tibet, Xinjiang, and Hong Kong, Jash noted. Meanwhile, external problems include comprehensive economic and military tensions with liberal democracies around the world, including the United States, India, Japan, and Taiwan, as well as with countries that have fallen prey to ruinous debt through participation in Beijing’s massive infrastructure investment project, the Belt and Road Initiative. “[China’s] economic growth has slowed down. Its idea of the China model has failed, and the Belt and Road has led to greater debt traps,” J

    Majority of Australians See China as a ‘Security Threat’: Poll
    The majority of Australians now see China as “more of a security threat” to the country, according to new figures from the Lowy Institute. The survey revealed that 63 percent of Aussies now have a more negative view of China, which is a “substantial” 22-point increase from last year. Meanwhile, only 34 percent said they see China as “more of an economic partner” to Australia—a marked difference from 2018 when the figure was 82 percent. Further, the number of people aged under 30 who hold the view that China is more of an economic partner to Australia had trended down to 51 percent since 2018 when the figure was at 87 percent. “The sharp decline in the Australia–China relationship in recent years has been clearly mirrored in Australian public opinion, as seen in successive Lowy Institute Polls,” according to the Lowy Institute website. A protester holds up a panel at the “No Beijing 2022” rally in Melbourne, Australia, on June 23, 2021. (The Epoch Times)“Trust, warmth and confidence in China and China’s leaders started to decline in 2017, and this year’s results present another record low for Australians’ views of China. “In 2021, even views of China’s economic growth—historically a positive for Australians—have now shifted into negative territory.” The Lowy Institute attributed the negative change of public opinion on China to the year of what it called “political disputes” between Australia and Beijing. Over the last year, Beijing has slapped sanctions on certain exports in retaliation for Australia calling for an investigation into the origins of COVID-19, the disease caused by the CCP virus, which emerged from Wuhan, China. Further, almost all Australians (93 percent) attributed their negative views on China to its military activities in the region, with a 14-point increase from 2016. While five percent have said China’s military activities have had a positive influence.

(Kevin Frayer/Getty Images)“This concern about military activities may have contributed to the large increase in the number of Australians who view ‘a military conflict between the United States and China over Taiwan’ as a critical threat to Australia’s vital interests over the next ten years,” according to the Lowy Institute. The majority of Australians (56 percent) also blame China for the tensions between Canberra and Beijing. The view that China is more of a security threat has also been trending consistently upwards among Labor, Liberal-Nationals, Greens, One Nation, Independents, and unaligned voters since 2018. The Lowy Institute survey also revealed that more Australians born in an Asian country see China as more of a security threat to Australia, up from 14 percent in 2018 to 44 percent in 2021.

    CCP Blocks People Mourning Dead Loved Ones in Zhengzhou, Detains Photographer and Mourner
    The Chinese regime blocked people from mourning their loved ones who drowned inside a Zhengzhou subway, and even detained at least one photographer and one mourner on July 27. Later on Tuesday, the photographer of the state-owned media Caixin was released, but the mourner’s situation is unknown. In Chinese culture, the seventh day after death is an important mourning day. July 27 is the seventh day after the deaths of at least 14 victims who died inside the flood-submerged subway. People who lost their loved ones and who sympathized with the victims laid flowers in front of the subway station since early morning. On most of the cards of each bouquet, mourners wrote the deceased’s names. However, the regime hired security staff to install a fence to block the public’s view of the flowers, and even dispelled people who wanted to stay there for a while. “These people died beside us. We, millions of Zhengzhou residents, share the same sorrow … Now, the regime doesn’t even allow us to present some flowers,” a Zhengzhou resident named Chen said, expressing his anger at the regime in a telephone interview with the Chinese-language Epoch Times. Chen said that he witnessed a group of primary school students go to place flowers for the victims, but were driven away by security staff. “These pupils cried [because they couldn’t mourn the deceased],” Chen added. Photographer and Mourner Detained After the flood on July 20, the regime in Zhengzhou didn’t allow foreign journalists to take photos or interview residents. On July 27, even a state-owned media photographer was detained. “My colleague, Caixin’s photographer Chen Liang, was detained by Nanyang Road police station [in Zhengzhou] after he shot the following picture,” Caixin journalist Wang Heyan posted on Chinese social media platform Weibo on July 27. In her post, Wang posted an aerial photo that showed flowers being placed outside of the subway station. Late in the night, another Caixin reporter Chen Baocheng posted on Weibo that Chen Liang was released, without giving any details.

(STR/AFP via Getty Images)Wang Jinlei, a Zhengzhou resident, went to the subway station to mourn the victims on July 27 and was angered upon seeing the fence. He stated in a post on Chinese social media platform WeChat, “The fence blocked the way of the victims’ spirits going home (heaven).” Soon after, Wang posted that he had removed the fence with the help of other passersby. However, about half an hour later, Wang was detained. The last message he posted on WeChat was, “I only have one thought, which is lighting the road to help the deceased to go home (heaven).” The Zhengzhou regime ordered the security staff to rebuild the fence after Wang was detained. Hours later, another group of mourners removed the fence again. This time, the regime didn’t rebuild the fence. The Epoch Times contacted the Zhengzhou police station, but couldn’t find out whether Wang was released or not.
