[B]China's gift of Karl Marx statue to German town sparks revolt[/B]

[QUOTE]Revolutionary thinker Karl Marx is sparking a new revolt in his German birthplace, after its city council agreed to accept a giant statute from China to mark the father of Communism's 200th birthday next year.

It seems the people of Trier aren't too happy about honoring a man who's political philosophy led to a divided Germany for nearly a half century — and taking the gift from a communist regime.

"China is not a free country, quite the opposite," Tobias Schneider, a politician for the Free Democratic Party in Trier, told German media Monday after the city's council voted in favor of accepting the 21-foot bronze statue.

"We could draw up a long list of human rights violations," he said. "Do we want to allow such a rogue regime to set up a statue of Karl Marx in the heart of our city? Refuse this poisoned gift."

Reiner Marz, of the Green party, said that "whoever accepts the present honors the gift giver. China’s Communist party doesn’t deserve any honor."[/QUOTE]
