Qinghai Normal University 
At the meeting on May 20, vice president Mao Peng passed down the key points of the Conference for Maintaining Stability in Higher Education Institutes in Qinghai Province and of the Education Bureau’s recent Notice to Stabilize College Students. At the same time, he directed and arranged the work of maintaining stability and protecting security for our university. President Mao pointed out that each college and department of our university should emphasize the work of maintaining stability and that task surpasses all other work. “June 4th” is a sensitive period for students. All the leaders in each college and department should pay close attention to the direction of student’s thoughts, prevent and stop any actions by Falun Gong or by members of anti-revolutionary organizations outside of China to instigate students, stick to the principle of “intense inside but relaxed outside,” do well in thought-education and student guidance, keep the students alert so that there is no chance that criminals have the opportunity to take advantage of our loopholes, ensure the security and stability of the campus, and protect student’s personal rights and interests.
Vice president Yanwu Zhao gave assignments to work on our students from four aspects: security education for students, student employment after graduation, student management, and student activities. He pointed out that, for the aspect of security education, we need to keep intensely alert to ensure political security and stability, pay attention to Internet security, timely delete information affecting security and stability on campus, and prevent criminals from using the Internet to instigate the students politically.
The Director of the Hebei Bureau of Education Talks about the Conference on the Work for Security and Stability in Hebei Province Schools 
First, the anti-China forces continuously create incidents using such issues as Tibet, human right and trade. All sorts of enemies have increased their intensity in order to penetrate universities and colleges. Some non-governmental organizations provide cultural influence through joint-schools, research funding, training classes, and financial aid. These have the strong characteristic of puzzling people through such disguises. The activities of Dalai gangs1 to separate China has never stopped and has become even more severe, which directly destroys stable situations. The evil cult organization of Falun Gong has never taken a break from their destructive activities to penetrate the education system, especially universities and colleges, which we cannot ignore or take lightly. There are many big events this year: the 60th Anniversary of the establishment of the country, the 90th anniversary of the “May 4th” movement, the 50th anniversary of Tibetan democratic movement, the 20th anniversary of the “June 4th” political instability, and the 10th anniversary of denouncing the evil cult organization of “Falun Gong,” etc. Those sensitive periods are more likely to become the spark to induce events of instability.
All levels of educational administration departments, school leadership and all kinds of schools should further perfect the leadership and offices for maintaining stability. You should establish specific groups of leaders, where the top leader of the CCP administration department should be the No. 1 person responsible for work in stability and security, and the remaining members of the leadership team should carefully carry out the duty of “one title, two responsibilities” [ed. to be responsible not just for the day to day operational work, but also for conducting party work] and be responsible for maintaining stability and ensuring security. You should further clearly realize the management principles that “the person who manages is responsible” and “intensely manage each level of the organizations and the upper level is responsible for the lower level,” so that we can do the job well in maintaining the stability and security of the schools all together. You should further enhance the structure of the administrative organizations and work force, clearly stratify the different offices, and assign enough good staff. You should solidly enhance the training and continuously improve the quality of the work force for maintaining security and stability as a whole.
You should further enhance the strength to create stability using high tech means. You should construct a new model for the security liability prevention system by emphasizing the function of technology to improve measures for security enhancement and security liability prevention. With the goal of improving the efficiency of liability prevention and with the principles of preventing loss and crime, you should increase necessary costs, promote and popularize the security liability prevention system using fire prevention monitoring and video monitoring, provide the relevant training and technology guidance at the same time, and gradually realize the high-tech, professionalism and modernization of security maintenance and risk prevention in schools.
You should solidly carry out the work of ideological education in the education system. You should persistently arm and unify the thoughts of teachers and students using the theories of Socialism with Chinese characteristics. You should carefully plan, devotedly organize, and solidly further advance the activities to study the concept of scientific development. You should take good advantage of the chance in the celebration activities of the 60th anniversary of the establishment of the country, the 90th anniversary of the May 4th movement, and the 50th anniversary of the democratic reform in Tibet, to enhance education on a large scale on the situation in the world, in the country, and of the Party and guide the teachers and students to transform their patriotic passion into the practical behavior of studying and working diligently to repay the country. You should strictly regulate and monitor important fields, including lectures and forums, school newspapers and magazines, the Internet on campus, broadcasts and TV networks, and publishers, etc. to prevent the use, destruction, and penetration by the anti-China forces from the West, the enemies in and outside of China, and the members of “Falun Gong.” You should proactively and appropriately deal with the problems emerging from the ideological field of the universities and colleges, settle the problems in the “sprouting (early)” stage inside the schools and on lower levels, and not provide channels for spreading the wrong ways of thinking and wrong notions.

The second factor is the influence from society. When the economic situation is good, everybody can see hope; when the economic situation is not good, the already fragile ability of the people to endure hardship will be transformed or shifted, which will cause lots of social problems. At present, all kinds of existing social conflicts are on top of each other, new conflicts keep arising, and the old social conflicts are likely to show up again and affect and interact with the existing and emerging conflicts, the conflicts in the economy, and the conflicts in other fields. The current problems will be more severe, involving the use of the land, real estate, rural area finance, conflicts between the cadres and the masses, legislation and problems of mass appeal. In addition, with the development of multiple interest groups, the diversity of demands and the more and more complex mentalities of society, some of the people see unfairness and lose their mental balance. They become more and more unsatisfied with society and still have hatred toward cadres and the government. A small group of people are radical in protecting their rights but ignorant about the law. They easily engage in radical behavior and may instigate incidents to destroy the normal order of society. The third is the influence from political factors. Relatively speaking, more sensitive political periods occur this year, including the 60th Anniversary of the establishment of the country, the 90th anniversary of the “May 4th” movement, the 50th anniversary of Tibetan democratic movement, the 20th anniversary of the “June 4th” political instability, and the 10th anniversary of denouncing the evil cult organization of “Falun Gong.” In addition, our province will host the 11th National Athletic Competition, including the women’s soccer competition and Tae Kwon Do. This period is usually when lots of appeals and mass incidents happen. Some of the unresolved conflicts inside of people may happen all together. Therefore, all levels of the government and all different departments should sufficiently realize the arduousness and the long-lasting nature of maintaining social stability. When living in safety, think about the danger. Enhance the sense of hardship, crisis consciousness and responsibility consciousness. Correctly understand and scientifically analyze the conflicts and problems currently affecting social stability. Correctly handle and scientifically plan the strategies and approaches to vigorously advance maintaining peace and ensure the continuous harmony and stability of the general situation in the county.
Especially this year, different levels of the government set a higher standard for maintaining stability regarding dealing with appeals. From the province government to Zao Village, from Tengzhou City to the county and neighborhood communities, the major leaders of the government have signed the document listing goals and responsibilities. Tengzhou City has also signed an agreement with different towns and neighborhoods. It is a requirement that the number of people who go to Beijing to appeal from each county and neighborhood cannot exceed 5 out of a million people, which is very strict. According to this request, our county will be off from the target as long as one person goes to Beijing or the capital of our province to appeal. Therefore, all the government branches, villages, and departments should further enhance the sense of responsibility, increase pressure on yourselves, persist in the effort to prevent and resolve the problems appropriately, both from the surface and the roots. You should put the emphasis on grasping the source of problems for prevention, information and news filtration, using persuasion to resolve problems, controlling the development of situations, forcing implementation, aftermath coping strategies, and the prevention and the elimination of different kinds of factors leading to instability. First of all, you should enhance the ability to resolve, investigate and eliminate the conflicts. According to the requirement of finding problems early enough, making problems resolvable and controllable and well resolving the problems, you should keep searching for and investigating problems on schedule each month, do more searching and investigation before major events, do early searching and investigation before sensitive periods, collaborate in searching and investigating common problems, and specifically search for and investigate serious problems. You should investigate clearly and from all aspects for all kinds of conflicts and hidden problems, truly know the situation, be clear in mind, and have the confidence to find problems early, resolve them early, and eliminate them early. You should build up appeal portfolios. The general branch and villages should have portfolios of the situation in your village; the counties should have portfolios on the situation of your county to ensure control of appeal cases at all times. You should enhance the work to gather information through opening up a wide range of channels, sufficiently use all kinds of legal methods and measures, exhaust all the means to gather information regarding the factors affecting social stability, realize the goal of taking action whenever the other party (those who affect social stability) take action, know what is going on whenever the other party takes any action, know what will happen before the other party takes any action, know everything in your mind clearly, firmly take proactive roles and win the battle proactively.
The Main Point of Propaganda Work and Thoughts for the Zhongqing University of Posts and Telecommunications in 2009 
This year is the 60th anniversary of the establishment of the country. All kinds of enemies will certainly take advantage of this opportunity to intensely contrive conspiracies and engage in destructive activities. For example, the Dalai gangs have claimed that they will take advantage of the 50th anniversary of the Tibetan democratic reform to contrive activities to separate the country, the “democratic activists” are engaging in destructive activities using the 20th anniversary of the “June 4th” incident of instability, Dongtu (Muslims) and the evil cult organization of “Falun Gong” are also attempting to take action. Therefore, this year will have lots of major political movement and sensitive periods. Furthermore, due to the current serious economic situation, the task of maintaining stability is very heavy and has a negative influence on the stable development of universities and colleges.
Enhance the construction and management of the Internet culture. According to Party General Secretary Jintao Hu’s talk, Enhance the Construction and Management of Internet Culture with an Inventive Spirit, and the point in the Suggestion on Enhancing the Construction and Management of Internet Culture by the CCP Central Office and the Council General’s Office, we should strengthen our effort to build up official university websites, the Red Rock Internet school, Chongqing Students Online and the websites for all work units and departments and enhance the specialization, interaction and effect of the Internet information service. We should strive to develop a healthy and beneficial Internet culture, increase and refresh the contents on the Internet, carefully plan and organize the major topics of Internet propaganda, and sing out loud the Major Theme and Rhythm on the Internet. We should strengthen the guidance on the Internet, mobilize activities for “Civilized Use of the Internet and Civilized Creation of Websites,” in depth, and frequently carry out propaganda and education on the moral application of the Internet. We should further enhance our ability to cope with the information on serious incidents and sudden incidents on the Internet. We should do well in analyzing events, clearly knowing the rationale of the events, and specifically explain the puzzles and questions for different trends of thought in society, hot topics and cultural phenomena emerging on the Internet. We should enhance supervision and management of the Internet, enhance the work to analyze, supervise and guide the information on the Internet so that we can promptly control and eliminate information that is anti-revolutionary, attacks the CCP and the government, is pornographic, gambling-related or harmful. We should enhance the structure of the Internet commenter teams, enlarge the army of Internet commentators, and strive to form a stronger party for positive propaganda on the Internet.

IV Stability Surpasses All
This year we will happily welcome the 60th anniversary of the establishment of the country, but it is also the 20th anniversary of putting down the “June 4th” incident of instability and the 10th anniversary of denouncing the evil cult organization of Falun Gong. Our country has many major events and many events to be celebrate, however, we also face many difficulties and problems, namely, the new situation of social stability and the arduous task to maintain stability. The central government and the province committee have been highly emphasizing the work of maintaining stability and have stressed many times that, on the one hand, we need to work on the economy and on social development; and that, on the other hand, we need to work on social stability, that is, “both should be worked on, and both should be worked on very hard.” The stability in institutes of higher education is an important component of social stability. The major issue in maintaining stability in institutes is the stability of the students. The major issue to maintain student’ stability is to maintain the stability of their thoughts. All the institutes should further deepen your understanding on the importance of the work to maintain stability according to the requirements of the central government and the province committee, work on both the stability of students’ thoughts and resolving of practical problems, investigate and eliminate factors leading to instability, decisively cope with sudden events, construct long-term and effective mechanism to maintain stability and contribute to maintaining stability of the bigger society.
Security Maintenance Information for Yangtze University, 
On the morning of March 4, Yuanjun Zhao, the vice commissioner of the National Security Bureau of Jingzhou City, and the accompanying staff visited our university to inspect and guide the work for national security and the people’s defense network. Zaizhou Liu, the vice president of our university and the vice group leader for national security held a reception for Vice Commissioner Zhao.
At the meeting, Commissioner Zhao analyzed the potential problems in institutes of higher education regarding national security. The major manifestation is that due to the influence of the Internet and the media outside of China, college students are relatively active in their thinking. They are not immune to the penetration of religions, as every now and then Christianity is spread on campus. Students sometimes leak information to the outside involving sensitive issues of the school; and professors who travel abroad easily attract attention from local espionage agents, since there was the incident in which they leaked important secretes in technology. When mentioning the focus for this year, Commissioner Zhao said that security maintenance for this year should focus on the three sensitive periods (the 60th anniversary of the establishment of the country, the 20th anniversary of putting down the “June 4th” incident of instability, and the 10th anniversary of denouncing Falun Gong), to solidly work on information collection and feedback, to ensure political stability in the school. Commissioner Zhao has also raised three requirements according to the relevant policies of our country: Enhance the structure of national security organizations in schools; ensure proper funding; continuously enhance the work quality of the army for political and security maintenance. Lastly, Commissioner Zhao stressed the importance of the work on national security in our schools in the recent period of time and also expressed his appreciation regarding our school’s department for maintaining security and for their close cooperation with the City Security Bureau over the years.
