Promoting the Arts?

Archaeological groups have promoted the Chinese Government's view of cultural property issues on the Internet and before the US Cultural Property Advisory Committee. Presumably, however, they will not promote this act of the Chinese Government against a pro-democracy artist, but nor will they likely condemn it. See

What is missing is a recognition that China's nationalistic stance on antiquities carries over to other aspects of Chinese cultural policy, like what was done to this artist.
