In 2008, Clive Hamilton was at the House of Parliament in Canberra when the Beijing Olympic Torch Relay was held in 2008.He looked into the trouble as a small pro-Tibet protest was invaded by thousands of anger from Chinese students.Where did they come from?Why were they so aggressiveAnd what gave them the right to arrest other people for exercising their democratic right to protest.The authorities didn’t do anything about it, and what he saw stayed with him.In 2016, it was revealed that wealthy Chinese businessmen, linked to the Chinese Communist Party, had become the largest donors for the two main political parties.Hamilton realized something big that was happening, and decided to investigate the Chinese government’s influence in AustraliaWhat he found shockingFrom politics to culture, from real estate and agriculture, from universities, from trade unions, and even in our elementary schools, he discovered convincing evidence of the Chinese Communist Party, of the infiltration of Australia.Sophisticated influence of the target operations of Australia’s elite elites, and parts of the great Sino-Australian diaspora were mobilized to buy access to politicians, at the limit of academic freedom, intimidate it, critics, collect information for Chinese intelligence agencies, and protest in the streets against the Australian government.It is no exaggeration to say that the Chinese Communist Party and Australian democracy are on a collision trajectoryThe PCC is determined to win, while Australia looks the other way.In-depth and powerfully supported research, Silent Invasionis reflect on the review of the setting of threats to democratic freedoms, Australians have taken too long to take for grantedYes, China is important to our economic prosperity; but, Hamilton asks, what is our sovereignty as a nation of value?Whoever is anxious to understand how China attracts other countries into its sphere of influence must begin with the Silence of Invasion.It is an important book for the future
