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.

The biggest political "tiger" - a corrupt top official - in the history of the People's Republic of China is about to be caged.

Zhou Yongkang, the former internal head of security, member of the politburo and part of the Jiang Zemin political faction will soon be arrested and face trial for corruption.

Zhou was instrumental in carrying out Jiang Zemin's persecution of Falun Gong practitioners along with Bo Xilai, Luo Gan, and other members of the faction. These three men in particular, are responsible for the killing of Falun Gong practitioners for their organs, but this is unlikely to come out at Zhou's public trial as the communist regime cannot admit to its complicity without bringing down the regime itself.

Communist party leader Xi Jingping is using the trials of high profile 'tigers' such as Zhou and Bo Xilai to deflect attention from the regime's problems and to build his own power base.

The South China Morning Post details some of the allegations against Zhou in this article, including the assassination and coup attempts against Xi Jingping by the Jiang Zemin faction to escape being held accountable for their crimes against humanity.

The Zhou case is just the tip of the iceberg as the communist regime desperately seeks for ways to evade exposure of its crimes.
