Video: Joe Higgins criticises hypocrisy of capitalist countries towards human rights

Joe Higgins MEP (17/12/2009) lambasts the hypocrisy shown by capitalist rulers when they criticise human rights abuses abroad while ignoring human rights abuses at home. Few criticisms have been made of the Danish state, which arrested hundreds of peaceful protestors in "preventative arrests", during the recent Copenhagen Summit, despite Denmark being a member state of the European Union.
