Zhou Yongkang in Sichuan, Nipping Social Conflicts ‘In the Bud’

Zhou Yongkang, member of the Politburo Standing Committee and Chair of the Chinese Communist Party’s Political and Legal Affairs Committee, was recently in Sichuan Province. While there, he emphasized three key tasks that had been highlighted in the December 18 National Video Teleconference on Political and Legislative Affairs: resolving social conflicts, innovations in social management, and ‘fair and honest law enforcement.’ 

At a town in Beichuan County, the center of the 2008 Sichuan Earthquake, Zhou requested the establishment of mediation agencies “wherever there are people and wherever there are conflicts,” so as to eliminate the conflicts “in the bud.”
