Netizens tell it like it is in messages to premier – SCMP
From the South China Morning Post, via Asia Media (link):
Hundreds of thousands of netizens posted appeals and questions to Wen Jiabao on special bulletin boards prepared by main state media websites in the run-up to the premier’s press conference yesterday.
The rare opportunity to make their voices heard by the premier attracted a wave of interest among mainlanders.
But some tried to draw Mr Wen’s attention to problems such as the rights of hepatitis B patients, low salaries for soldiers and rampant corruption among government officials who have wasted and embezzled public funds.
