Xi Jinping Received Representatives of “Fengqiao-Style Work”

{Editor’s note: The “Fengqiao experience” was a Mao-era practice from the 1960’s. It refers to a practice from China’s Cultural Revolution where masses of citizens would monitor and “reform” those who are labeled as class enemies. In the town of Fengqiao, Zhejiang Province, CCP cadres relied on grassroots mobilization of masses to “reform reactionary elements,” a practice which Mao promoted for nationwide adoption. Xi Jinping has been making efforts to revive this practice [1]}

The Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP’s) Central Political and Legal Affairs Commission has selected 104 work units nationwide as the role model for applying the “Fengqiao-Style Work Method.” On November 6, Xi Jinping met with representatives of the selected units at the People’s Great Hall in Beijing. He encouraged them to continue their efforts, adhere to and develop the “Fengqiao Experience” in the new era, and make greater contributions to advancing a safer China.

Aboluo commented that the meeting conveyed significant importance with attendees of all the key figures in China’s political and security apparatus: Cai Qi (member of CCP Politburo Standing Committee and real power holder second only to Xi Jinping), Li Xi (Party Secretary of the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection), Chen Wenqing (Secretary of the Political and Legal Affairs Commission), Wang Xiaohong (State Council member and Minister of Public Security), Wu Zhenglong (Secretary-General of the State Council), Zhang Jun (President of the Supreme People’s Court), and Ying Yong (Chief Prosecutor of the Supreme People’s Procuratorate).
