Why Didn't Yao Ming Also Sleep?

The former Chinese NBA star Yao Ming was appointed by the Chinese communist party to be a member of the CPPCC (Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference). Yao Ming is also a student at Shanghai Jiao Tong University at present, and at same time conducting his wine business.

Having all those duties to attend to, Chinese bloggers commented on these photos:

"Why did 'Delegate Yao' not sleep?"

"Please have a look: the back of those chairs are so low, even if 'Delegate Yao' slid down in his seat he would still not be able to rest his back properly; but think about it everyone, Yao is a star, and a tall man, if one takes photos, doesn't matter from which angle, one cannot miss Yao. If Yao was caught sleep, what kind of news would we get? ...!  Well, Yao made the right decision, did not sleep, but Yao is dreaming with his eyes open, if you check the photos carefully..."

Has Regime 'Disappeared' Gao Zhisheng Again? PDF Print E-mail
Real China
China Uncensored   

Since Chinese human rights lawyer, Gao Zhisheng was released from prison on August 7th, 2014, he has been under house arrest at his father-in-law’s home, and has been closely monitored by the Public Security Bureau.

However, according to his wife Geng He, who now lives in the U.S., she has not been able to contact Gao since November 30th, and her daily calls resulted  in a "number does not exist" message. Calls to the local police station were hung up on when Gao's name was mentioned and further calls were unanswered.

The Associated Press reported on 2nd December that Gao’s elderly brother, Gao Zhiyi, hung up after a brief phone conversation on Wednesday, saying: “We cannot say anything.”

CCP cowardice

Gao released an open letter to coincide with the communist leader Xi Jingping's visit to the United States in September and has also spoken in support of activist Yang Maodong, who was jailed for 6 years last week for his peaceful efforts to bring about change in China.

Gao Zhisheng was one of the top 10 lawyers in China, and when he discovered the inhuman torture and persecution of Falun Gong practitioners, he decided to speak out against this crime of genocide. Gao then endured many “disappearances” ---being kidnapped by Chinese police unlawfully, after he wrote three open letters to Hu Jingtao, the then Chinese leader, and also to the US Congress. After one jail period Gao once again risked his life to reveal the torture he endured inside jail.

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) with all its might and power, has once again shown its cowardice in the face of one man's words of truth.
