The Power of Chinese Bloggers

 

A group of Chinese travelers in Egypt saw Chinese writing carved on a statue in the ancient Luxor Temple, it says: " Ding jinhao was here."

Chinese tourists tried to wipe it off with tissue paper, but to no avail. Some of them took photos and put on a blog:"We are so ashamed, how can one just carve things on such precious 3500 years old relics?" The news was quickly spread by thousands of bloggers, and the culprit was found in just over 24 hours. Ding jinhao, a high school student in Nanjing province. Chinese demanded the student and his parents apologize....

The parents of Ding jinhao contacted the Chinese media, and passed on their apology: "This is a bad act of (our) child, but as parents we should bear the main blame as we did not guide him properly, we did no give him proper teaching (in manners), We (my wife and I) and our child apologize to the Egyptian authorities; we also apologize to all the people in our country who take this matter seriously. I beg everyone's pardon for my child's wrong action, and I beg everyone to give this child a chance to act right in the future. "

(According to ancient Chinese custom, parents usually bear the main responsibility for their children's behaviour.)

Investigator Calls for Action to Save Falun Gong and Uyghurs PDF Print E-mail
Global Stage
Ethan Gutmann   

Ethan Gutmann, a China analyst, human-rights investigator, and author of 'The Slaughter,' briefed the Prague Senat earlier this month about forced organ harvesting in China.

 

Three years ago, I spoke to the Senat about Chinese organ harvesting of prisoners of conscience. What has occurred since then – both in terms of our investigation and the Chinese Communist Party’s response to it – is a remarkable story.


Yet I am here today to tell you that we failed, that the world is facing a human rights crisis in China today that has no exact precedent in human history.


The Chinese claim to have 7000 voluntary donations a year – yet even their made-up numbers cannot explain their actual transplant volume. The majority of the shortfall is made up of Falun Gong. For example, on a single day in 2013, a witness watched over 500 Falun Gong labor camp prisoners being subjected to medical examinations of their retail organs.


But the Chinese Communist Party appear to be returning to the Uyghurs as a primary source of organs. Over the last year, 17 million Uyghurs – every man, woman, and child have been DNA and blood tested. And we have just learned that half a million to a million – sound familiar? Uyghurs, primarily males, have been sent to “reeducation” camps.

 

Nine new crematoriums


The information is sketchy. The Internet is cut off, and no Western reporters can enter. But we do know that the Party is building nine crematoriums in Xinjiang. The first one, near Urumqi, just became operational. And the Chinese are not hiring two or three security guards, as most crematoriums would. They are hiring 50.


I don’t really know how else to put this: This is a human rights catastrophe. The evidence is unmistakable. It is unfolding before our eyes.


I am not a lawyer. I cannot tell you what course of action you should take:

Ban Chinese transplant surgeons from entering Prague using the Magnitsky Act. Write a resolution. Make a statement. But for God’s sake, do something.
