Jiang Yanyong, a 72 year old Chinese physician who exposed the Chinese government coverup of the SARS epidemic last year, is being detained in a room under 24 hour watch, and is being threatened with confinement until he changes his thinking and raises his level of understanding about the Tiananmen massacre.

Chinese Pressure Dissident Physician

The officials have detained Jiang Yanyong, 72, a semi-retired surgeon in the People's Liberation Army, in a room under 24-hour supervision, and they have threatened to keep him until he "changes his thinking" and "raises his level of understanding" about the Tiananmen crackdown, said one of the sources, who described the classes as "brainwashing sessions."

But Jiang, who became a national hero last year after blowing the whistle on the government's efforts to hide the SARS outbreak, has refused to back down, and said in a recent note to his family that he would continue to "face the problems confronting me with the principle of seeking truth from facts," according to a person close to the family.

The standoff is the culmination of an extraordinary battle of wills that has been quietly unfolding for months between China's ruling Communist Party and an individual who has already challenged the authorities and forced them to back down once.

Please visit the link provided for the complete story.

The Chinese controlled media has not reported yet the latest detention of the 72 year old. This is not the first time that Jiang has been under close scrutiny, or detained by the Chinese government, along with other Chinese dissidents, for trying to expose their government's dictatorship control and the laws which punish Chinese people who criticize the government.

I agree with you.
Cases like this, show that China has not changed that much from being a communist country, except on using capitalism to get more money. There are people who have claimed that China is not a communist country anymore, the case of this physician and others like him show that this is not the case, that China is still a communist country and has complete control over the media over there. Websites which say the slightest critique about the government are taken down and people who openly criticize the government are punished.

wow what a hero

THIS is the kind of person that young people (of all ages) should be looking up to as a role model

I just hope he knows that people from all over the world are keeping him in their thoughts (and/or prayers)

Hang in there Jiang!!!

perhaps this is the time to undertake a massive boycott of all products made in china (if you havent yet), and watch, its tricky and so many are. and, perhaps you could add walmart to that boycott, as china is their mainstay.
