Another Test for the Party’s Rule û Global Human Rights Torch Relay in China

Dr. Wang Juntao, a prominent democracy activist in the United States, warned that the current tour of the Global Human Rights Relay may lead to an unprecedented crisis for the Communist Party, surpassing the Tibetan protests. Wang stated. “According to statistics published by the Party, experts estimate every year there are about 100,000 group protests and 2.6 million petition visits by victims of government abuses in Mainland China.  They are potential participants in the China tour of the Global Human Rights Torch Relay. Their emotions can be easily ignited by the Torch. … The crisis triggered by the Human Rights Torch Relay will be the ultimate test of the ruling party.”
