On Monday, the council voted 4-3 to fly the flag on October 1st, China’s National Day. The Chinese Consulate has said they might stop by to visit on that day.
Councilmember Benny Lee, who made the proposal, said flying the flag would help attract Chinese investors.
Of course, the protests are over the human rights record of China. A problem to be sure, but nobody's got a problem flying another country's flag over the city hall of an American City?
Benny Lee, heh.
