Bao Tong at home. (Source: Wikipedia/Renee Chiang)

Bao Tong is a CCP critic, activist, and former high-ranking CCP official and close aide to ousted Premier Zhao Ziyang. After serving a seven-year prison sentence in isolation in the wake of the 1989 government crackdown on pro-democracy protesters, Bao has been subject to continuous surveillance and virtual house arrest. Despite this, he has continued his open critique of the Chinese government and policy, as well as his advocacy for the rehabilitation of Zhao Ziyang's reputation.

Bao was born in Haining, Zhejiang in 1932, but spent much of his formative years in Shanghai. He was the son of a factory worker, and was exposed to left-wing political thought at an early age by two of his uncles who were prominent intellectuals. He met his wife-to-be, Jiang Zongcao, in high school in Shanghai. Jiang convinced Bao to join the Chinese Communist Party in 1949, the same year it took control of the state following the Chinese Civil War between the CCP and the Kuomintang. Zhao quickly rose through the Party ranks, but was denounced during the Cultural Revolution and sent to do labor in Manchuria.
