      I’ll post the video later if it’s available. CSPAN has changed their policies and I don’t think they allow uploading their videos to blogs but I could be wrong. Hopefully it will be on YouTube later. I’m at work and can’t watch it right now.

      I just found a live-stream of it on the House Foreign Affairs website so people can watch it here.

    I am really happy that the US Secretary of State has set out what democracy and human rights is all about. This is very, very timely because so many other countries do not allow peaceful demonstrations. One such country is Malaysia where there is racial discrimination and Indians in particular have been marginalized. Sadly the illiberal democracy arrested more than 100 Indians who wanted to assemble and urge the government to give them political and civil rights, remove a book from circulation that denigrates the Indian community. I am happy that the USA supports peaceful demonstrations. I hope that the USA will rebuke Najib and his government and release all prisoners or charge them in court. Holding them in detention without trials is an offence against humanity!
    Once again Thank you for putting this so clearly-that governments must work for the people and human rights are an integral part of democracy. A message and warning to the world leaders who abuse their positions.Thank you Mrs Clinton-it was inspiring!!

      I agree. She pointed out dictatorial practices of the 20th century won’t work in the 21st century, for reasons including technology and youth movements. Also, she highlighted that countries that deny rights to their females harm their countries’ economic progress and stability.

      People are demanding rights in many countries; the fear barrier has been broken, and obviously Libya is not going to be the end of it. Currently, we and other governments appear to be reacting to one country after another. Especially because of rising commodity prices, technology, and the “youth bulge”, this is all going to continue. Imagine as climate issues and shortages of water and energy become stronger. There will be more demand for economic and political freedom. We need some policies that think in the long-term and not in 4-year or even 2-year election cycles:)
