"Inciting subversion of state power" (shāndòng diānfù guójiā zhèngquán zuì 煽动颠覆国家政权罪), listed in Article 101 of China's Criminal Law, includes "spreading rumors or slanders or any other means to subvert state power or overthrow the socialist system" and is punishable by up to five years in prison, or more if the defendant is judged to be a "ringleader" or to have committed other crimes. Activist Liu Xiaobo was sentenced to 11 years in prison for the charge of inciting subversion. Liu died in custody on July 13, 2017 from multiple organ failure related to late state liver cancer.
In January 2016, paralegal Zhao Wei faced the charge of "subversion of state power," which carries a maximum sentence of life imprisonment. The charge was unexpectedly heavy. Assuming she stood accused merely of "inciting subversion," supporters made a video montage of Zhao, set to a new song, "Girl at the Summit."
