Even being vegetarian and decidedly loving animals I consider the injustice done the
human inhabitants of the people's republic being of slightly greater importance.
However, apart from the fact that the zoo's pitiful circumstances cannot be
extrapolated, I think that seeking communication and dialogue is the better way
rather than cutting someone dead, with the conference's after all bearing the
possibility to Chinese students and colleagues to attend concerts and to access
(unfiltered) information of a recent and highly professional level.
