Passages from Wang Xiaoning – Human Rights in China

From, via the Washington Post:

Passages from Wang Xiaoning‘s essays that were deemed objectionable by Chinese authorities:

“Never forget that China is still an authoritarian dictatorship.” “Look at China today — workers and peasants have been suppressed into the lowest level of society. Tens of millions of workers are unemployed, and many workers are cruelly exploited and oppressed; they have no right to strike or establish labor unions and no protection for their most basic rights.” “The main reason that the Chinese Communist Party has been able to retain power in spite of being so corrupt is that China does not yet have a party that can replace the Communist Party.” “Without a multiparty system, free elections and separation of powers, any political reform is fraudulent.”
