In summary, news outlets have been censored and Liu's wife has been detained by Chinese authorities with her phone number terminated. Despite the world watching closely, China continues to act in this manner. There is a discussion on this topic in GD, but it is unlikely that any change will come from this situation. Due to our dependence on China, meaningful sanctions cannot be placed against them.

I cannot believe that the Chinese are acting like this when they know that the whole world is watching them very closely right now.

If China cared what they looked like they would have changed many things a long time ago. I doubt any change will come from this, China is not sweating it.

Yeah, this is sadly true. The worst part is that we cannot place any real sanctions against them because we are so dependent upon them.
 

Related to China's Nobel Peace Prize reaction

1. What is China's response to the Nobel Peace Prize?

China has consistently expressed its disapproval and opposition to the Nobel Peace Prize being awarded to certain individuals, particularly those who are critical of the Chinese government. This has been the case since the first Chinese Nobel Laureate, Liu Xiaobo, was awarded the prize in 2010.

2. Why does China react negatively to the Nobel Peace Prize?

The Chinese government sees the Nobel Peace Prize as a political tool used by Western countries to undermine China's sovereignty and interfere in its internal affairs. They also view the awarding of the prize to certain individuals as a form of Western propaganda and interference in China's political and social systems.

3. How does China respond to its citizens winning the Nobel Peace Prize?

In the past, China has responded to its citizens winning the Nobel Peace Prize by censoring news and information about the award and the individual who received it. The Chinese government has also put pressure on other countries to not attend the award ceremony and has restricted the movement of the individual's family and friends.

4. Has China ever acknowledged a Nobel Peace Prize winner?

No, China has never officially acknowledged or celebrated any of its citizens who have won the Nobel Peace Prize. In fact, when Liu Xiaobo was awarded the prize in 2010, the Chinese government censored the news and prevented him from attending the award ceremony. He died in Chinese custody in 2017.

5. How does the international community respond to China's reaction to the Nobel Peace Prize?

The international community has expressed concern and criticism over China's negative reaction to the Nobel Peace Prize. Many see it as a violation of freedom of speech and expression, and a way for the Chinese government to suppress dissent and criticism. Some countries, such as Norway, have also experienced strained diplomatic relations with China due to their involvement in awarding the prize.
