Huaqiao University Indoctrinates Foreign Students with CCP Revolution History

Huaqiao University recently organized a winter camp for its foreign students to visit CCP historical revolutionary sites — Yan’n in Shaanxi Province and Xibaipo in Hebei Province. Both served as the capital city of the CCP during its war against the Kuomintang that eventually led to the CCP seizing power in China. ”During this trip, foreign students were indoctrinated with China’s revolutionary history and learned about the hardships endured when the CCP leaders created a brand new China.” “China’s revolution was not by accident; it was the result of many soldiers giving up their lives.”

In English, Huaqiao means “Overseas Chinese.” Huaqiao University is directly under the Overseas Chinese Affairs Office of the State Council. Its students are from overseas Chinese families.

Media and Rights Groups Work to Secure Gao Zhisheng’s Release

Because of Hu Jintao’s visit to the United States, many have expressed concern for Gao Zhisheng, the lawyer who was ”disappeared” twice and cruelly tortured for defending Christians, political and religious dissenters, and Falun Gong.

On January 10, 2011, AP released an interview with Gao, taken before his second disappearance, in which he discussed his torture, including electric shocks to his genitals, near suffocation, and temporary blindness from cigarettes held close to his eyes.

In a speech given Friday, January 14, 2011, Secretary of State Clinton specifically mentioned Gao Zhisheng. At a congressional press conference on January 18, 2001, Bob Fu of ChinaAid requested that President Obama ask Hu Jintao to free Gao and let him come to the United States to be reunited with his wife and two children. Fu has been circulating a letter that Gao gave his wife, Geng He, before she and their children escaped to the United States. Gao is still missing. No one knows his whereabouts or whether he is still alive.

China to Send More Cadres in the Judicial System to Tibet

According to Xinhua news on September 15, the Ministry of Justice is to increase its assistance to Tibet’s administrative work, including cadres and talent, science and technology, as well as other areas in the judicial system. The proposal was made during the National Judicial Administrative System’s Conference to Aid Tibet.

Wu Aiying, the Minister of Justice, said that [China] should assist Tibetan judicial administrative departments to maintain social stability; and promote patriotic and ethnic unity education in the communities, countryside, schools and temples. Regarding financial aid, Wu called for increasing the funding of Tibet’s judicial work, particularly the funding of prisons, reeducation through labor (detoxification), the financial-planning apparatus, law education and legal assistance. Focal points of the conference were the problems of the shortage of judicial administrative cadres and talent, and the need to implement the training of directors of the judicial bureaus in all 73 Tibetan counties (and cities).

Yi Xiaozhun: China Shouldn’t Be Asked to Shoulder Responsibility for Developed Countries

According to an article that Xinhua published, China’s Vice Minister of Finance Yi Xiaozhun said on September 14 that China is willing to provide certain aid to other developing countries under the framework of South-South cooperation, but it is different from the aid between North-South countries. It is not fair to ask China to assume the responsibility that developed countries should take. Yi released the information just before Premier Wen Jiabao was about to visit other countries.

Given this background, China will encourage enterprises to invest in and open markets in developing countries.

How the Chinese Communist Regime Does Grass-Roots Management

Large-scale social unrest in China has been on the rise in recent years. The upcoming 2008 Beijing Olympic Games has become a rallying point for issues of social discontent. To deal with social unrest in both urban and rural areas, the Communist regime is focusing on one aspect of Chinese society — a special grass-roots organization — the Community Neighborhood Committee. These community committees are unique to China. On the surface, they are non-governmental organizations, but the staff is on the government payroll. These committees exist everywhere and form a dense network of control, working for the local police and governments. On February 16, 2008, the official journal of the CCP Central Committee Qiushi published an article entitled “Grass-roots is the focus of social management and supervision.”[1] The author is a member of Standing Committee of Anhui Provincial CCP Committee and Secretary of Committee of Political and Legislative Affairs of the Anhui Provincial CCP Committee. [2] Below are excerpts from the article.

Grass-roots is the focus of society’s management and supervision

The 17th National Congress of the CCP raised an important issue: To form a sound grass-roots society management system, using a healthy Party committee’s leadership, responsible government, a coordinated social network, and participation from the public. Anhui Province, when dealing with political and legal work, has focused its work at the grass-roots level in order to dissolve all social conflicts and problems at the grass-roots level, to maximally enhance harmonious factors, and to maximally reduce the unharmonious factors, so as to lay a solid foundation for the construction of a socialistic harmonious society.

I. Promoting the construction of communities, perfecting grass-roots management and a service network

We take the construction of communities as the base for managing society. Advice on Promoting the Construction of Communities on all Fronts was drawn on for the purpose of actively promoting construction of urban communities, and relying on Community’s Neighborhood Committees (CNC). We have constructed 2300 CNC’s covering all the cities and towns in the province. In 2007, we also established 10 pilot rural village communities so as to promote the construction of rural neighborhood communities based on the autonomy of villagers.

We have strengthened the communities’ self-governance function and clarified the CNC’s obligations and its autonomous role. As a result, the government’s administrative management effectively coordinates with residents’ self-governance through CNC’s. The government’s law enforcement interacts with the community’s lawful autonomy. We have strengthened construction of the community management team. By hiring community managerial staff members, implementing the system of certification, and improving staffer’s welfare, we have built a steadfast community management.

II. Perfect social organizations and enhance their service functions

Taking the management of social organizations as an important issue of strengthening the grass-roots work, we have issued Suggestions on further strengthening the management of civil social organizations, so as to guide and regulate the healthy development of non-governmental organizations. In Anhui province there are more than 10,000 lawfully registered non-governmental organizations, with a total staff of 70,000. These organizations span across the cities and villages, forming a system of non-governmental organizations with extensive coverage and comprehensive categories.

III. Strengthen grass-roots law enforcement, preserve long-term social stability

We take grass-roots enforcement as the focus, and use the construction of a "Peaceful Anhui" as a framework for handling prominent public order and security problems collectively. We implemented a policy focusing on the grass-roots, reinforcing the grass-roots level police force, and promoting an in-depth control system for preventing social unrest and promoting social stability. By organizing all social forces to carry out law enforcement, we managed to maintain continuous stability in the urban and rural areas across the province.

In the process of strengthening grass-roots public security management, we adhere to the policies of combining crackdown with prevention and combining targeted strikes with general supervision. We set up a working mechanism of rapid response, flexible operation, and orderly coordination to guarantee effective security protection and control. We have implemented a responsibility and accountability system. We oppose inaction and chaotic action. We have severely clamped down on various criminal activities, improved the service and management of the migrant population, strengthened the propaganda and education of rule of law to the whole society including young people, and effectively prevented crimes.

IV. Improve the emergency management mechanism and enhance the abilities of the grass-roots level to manage crises and risks

Emergency management is a crucial aspect of managing society. We have made legal regulations such as an Overall Emergency Plan for Unexpected Public Incidents, established an emergency management organization system, and enhanced the ability to prevent and deal with unexpected events. We focused on the counter-emergency planning at the county and township levels, and strengthened guidance of the counter-emergency planning in key work places, important public locations, schools and communities (villages). We strengthened the organization and training of specialized teams for emergency events management; established a working system of unified command, orderly coordination, sensitive response, and efficient operation. We improved the construction of the monitoring and detecting system, established an integrated system of society emergency monitoring, societal mobilization, rapid responsiveness, and high efficiency reaction.

V. Coordinate various interest groups and properly handle internal conflicts among the people.

We take the coordination of various interest groups and proper handling of various social conflicts, especially any internal conflicts among the people, as the daily work to promote and guarantee grass-roots stability and harmony. We adhere to the principle of "local management and hierarchical responsibility" and "whoever is in charge is responsible," so as to implement the responsibility policy and the policy of accountability at the grass-root level. We improve the case analysis and conflicts resolving system, adhere to the policy of "actively preventing, promptly exposing, effectively controlling and properly resolving," and extensively carry out the survey of public opinions. We also established a people-administration-judiciary trinity mediation system based on the judiciary, in which the departments of public appeals, the courts and public security participate. Thus, we have strived to achieve early investigation, rapid detection, complete control, and proper handling of various conflicts.
