The 2013 Beijing Marathon was not just the usual test of endurance. Many runners wore masks because of the heavy air pollution, and when the runners finally finished, there were very few public toilets.

Men and women urinated in public, including against the wall of Zhongnanhai, the communist leadership compound, leading many bloggers to dub it the 'Weeing Wall.'

Chinese Regime Jails Scholar for Life on Trumped Up Charges PDF Print E-mail

Mr. Ilham Tohti, a Uyghur scholar, has been sentenced to life imprisonment by the Chinese communist regime for “separatism” after two days of a sham trial during which no witness or evidence was presented to support the charges against him. The Intermediate People’s Court in Urumqi also issued an order to confiscate all of the Tohti family assets.

Mr. Tohti, an economics professor who taught at Beijing’s Minzu University, was arrested in January this year by the Chinese regime. He often criticized the regime’s actions in Xinjiang, but was considered a moderate who called for non-violent actions to protest against the persecution of Uyghurs.

The Chinese authorities fear real autonomy would provide a bed for Chinese democracy.  According to Dr. Yang Jianli, founder of Initiatives for China/Citizen Power for China, the regime has adopted a series of policies featuring political repression, economic exploitation, cultural and religious dissolution, and genocide. Any criticism of the policy regarding Uyghurs would be regarded as “separatism” and “terrorism”. Peaceful protests have been violently cracked down upon, thus creating more troubles and increasing tensions in those regions. He is “afraid this verdict would burn the bridge for reconciliation of the two peoples in the future.”

This is yet another example of the Chinese Communist Party's paranoia and fear that freedom of information would allow the Chinese people to know the "real" Communist Party, which would lead to the Party's demise and the prosecution of many senior communist officials and leaders for crimes against humanity.
