“Do not make irresponsible remarks,” or “不要乱说话,” is today’s chosen key phrase from Southern Metropolis Daily. The following text is translated by CDT:
Summary: On August 27 of this year, Pizhou municipal education bureau sent a red-lettered document [i.e., important directive] to all secondary and private schools. The document states that since last year, Pizhou city has already had 3 teachers detained for disseminating falsehoods online. All teachers [were instructed] to “pay attention to forms, speak about governance, speak about the present situation, refrain from doing things that are not to be done, and from irresponsibly remarking on things which ought not to be remarked upon.” This incident has been dubbed as “restricted Web gate” by netizens. The authenticity of the document was confirmed on the 13th by Pizhou municipal education bureau director Gao Fuxin.
