Still Working to Survive at Age 101 in Communist China

Madam Tan Xiaozheng (pictured above) lived in Guizhou for more than 50 years but never got her residents permit, so she is not entitled to receive a pension or any support form the government. She has had to support herself all her life and is still doing so at age 101. (screenshot).

The regime has always promised to look after the elderly.

In 1985, Newspapers and local cadres were told to promote this:

On red banner: Family planning (one child policy) is good, Government will look after the elderly. (screenshot)

In the 90's, On red banners: Family planning (One child policy) is good, Government is helping the elderly. (screenshot)

In 2000, on red banner: The elderly cannot completely rely on government to look after them. (screenshot)

 

In 2012, On Red banners: Delaying retirement is good, support yourself in your old age. (screenshot)

In 2013, Words in gold: Living off your mortgage, enjoy your future life.

The above are newspaper articles (propaganda) from 1985, 1995, 2005 and 2012 with the same slogan as the above banners.

The communist regime had tried to allay fears that the one child policy would lead to very few family members to look after the elderly, by promising that the government would do so.

Now many elderly people have no family to look after them and have been abandoned by the communist regime.

Australia Must Not Ratify Extradition Treaty with China PDF Print E-mail
Global Stage
Editorial   

The Sydney Morning Herald has recently reported that the Australian government is moving to ratify an extradition treaty with China.

This is a travesty by a government willing to cast aside morality and human rights to curry favour with the Chinese regime.

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) rules with an iron fist and brooks no dissent from its citizens. There is no rule of law or due process - the CCP controls the courts, and politicises the judiciary.

The regime executes more people than any other country in the world and it refuses to give details of numbers or so called 'crimes' of those executed.

Many charges are trumped up, politically motivated and/or used to silence dissidents.

Any dissident e.g , house Christian, Falun Gong practitioner, Tibetan, Uyghur, Hong Kong democracy campaigner or any other human rights campaigner lucky enough to reach

Australia could be forcibly returned on the pretext of having committed a “crime“ in China.

Hundreds of lawyers in China have been detained or threatened for trying to represent the interests of their clients in trials rigged by the CCP.

Thousands of Falun Gong practitioners have been killed for their organs by the CCP and many others have sought asylum in countries like Australia to escape the persecution.

There is no way to guarantee that  those extradited would be granted a fair trial, nor are there any effective measures to prevent torture or China going against diplomatic assurances and administering the death penalty.

Australia cannot accept the Chinese regime's word that a person has committed a crime and the regime has already been caught operating illegally in Australia to find and extradite so-called criminals.

Australians cherish the rule of law and the separation of powers, we should not allow our government to deny other country's citizens the same rights.

The Australian government needs to grow a backbone and stand up to the Chinese regime's bullies. We cannot forgo principles that our forefathers have fought for, in return for a handful of silver from the CCP.
