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.)

Zhou Yongkang to Finally Face Charges PDF Print E-mail
Real China
China Uncensored   

According to official media the Chinese Communist Party’s former security chief, Zhou Yongkang, has been indicted on charges of bribery, abuse of power, and and the intentional disclosure of state secrets.

Although Zhou has been under investigation since 2012 and he has been expelled from the communist party, it has taken a long time to gather evidence against him and his family.

Zhou Yongkang was a member of the powerful Politiburo Standing Committee, the highest decision-making body in the country, and was part of the faction of former regime leader Jiang Zemin who stepped down in 2002 but retained major influence in the communist party after retiring.

Chinese prosecutors said:

"The defendant Zhou Yongkang... took advantage of his posts to seek gains for others and illegally took huge property and assets from others, abused his power, causing huge losses to public property and the interests of the state and the people."

His former underling, former Chongqing Communist Party chief Bo Xilai, is in prison on charges linked to his wife's murder of a UK businessman.

Bo and Zhou were instrumental in carrying out Jiang Zemin's genocidal persecution of Falun Gong practitioners, but there has been no mention of this in the state media.

The next and biggest 'tiger' of all, Jiang Zemin, is now the target of Xi Jinping's "anti-corruption" drive.

It remains to be seen if the party will come clean about the persecution, including organ harvesting of Falun Gong practitioners, when Jiang is taken down.
