On Monday Wei happened on a confrontation in the central Chinese province of Hubei between city inspectors and villagers protesting over the dumping of waste near their homes.

A scuffle developed when residents tried to prevent trucks from unloading the rubbish, Xinhua said.

When Wei took out his cell phone to record the protest, more than 50 municipal inspectors turned on him, attacking him for five minutes, Xinhua said. Wei was dead on arrival at a Tianmen hospital, the report said.

Qi Zhengjun, chief of the urban administration bureau in the city of Tianmen, lost his job over the incident, Xinhua reported Friday.

The beating was condemned online. "It's no longer news that urban administrators enforce the law with violence," said an editorial on the news Web site Northeast News, according to The Associated Press.

Well considering China is allowing for capital penetration into their markets, Id say communism in China is long dead. But the totalitarian regine that ruled the communist market is still alive and well.

This is just one of many deaths that make up the rich tapestry of abuse the Chinese have had to endure.

End Communism? How about End Totalitarianism; How about End Despotism.

You might mean penetration into OUR markets.


But the totalitarian regine that ruled the communist market is still alive and well.


Yes.




End Communism? How about End Totalitarianism; How about End Despotism.

How about we end them ALL.
(Not going to happen, yet)

Question;
How far up (human rights-wise) do you think
China has come since Tianemen Square???

You know if this incident had happened in America, I wouldn;t have been surprised. Lets face it, America needs to work on her own human rights before bashing other countries. Just look at what the police are like in America - STORMTROOPERS !I have lived in China for over 18 months and will return there soon to love permanently. I believe China to be superior to America in almost every way. I live in America atm.
