San Leandro, California to Fly Flag of People's Republic of China Over City Hall

For China's National Day


The San Leandro City Council approved flying the flag of the People's Republic of China above City Hall next month, despite protests over the nation's human rights record.

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.
