Communist Party of China Expands Political Influence

By: Trevor Loudon

The Communist Party of China works hard to co-opt, buy, intimidate, influence and subvert political parties across the globe.

From the CPC International Department website:

Beijing, June 30 — The Communist Party of China (CPC) has carried out exchanges and cooperation with more than 570 political parties and organizations in 160 countries, the International Department of the CPC Central Committee said Wednesday.

Li Jun, a department spokesman, said at a press conference inter-Party communications have “opened a window” for the world to know the work of the CPC.

In the process of inter-Party communications, the CPC has drawn on the experiences of managing state affairs and learnt lessons from overseas political parties, Li said.

As BP makes its latest attempt to plug its gushing oil well, news photographers are complaining that their efforts to document the slow-motion disaster in the Gulf of Mexico are being thwarted by local and federal officials—working with BP—who are blocking access to the sites where the effects of the spill are most visible.
