CHINA
Celebrating 60 years of (censored) history in China
Whether under Imperial China or the People’s Republic, the state demands that the individual be sacrificed, this according to journalist and scholar Xiao Jiansheng. Given the subject-matter, mainland authorities banned his book ‘Chinese History Revisited’, and no one in Hong Kong dared to publish it. The author of this article, Bao Pu, is the son of Bao Tong, a top Chinese Communist leader and a former aide to Zhao Ziyang. Because of his opposition to the Tiananmen crackdown (1989), he spent seven years in jail and is currently under house arrest.

60 years in the PRC: From Mao to now, the corruption of power
The history of Communism in China is one of the most horrible. Amidst ideological purges, famines, repression, democracy was never given a voice (the fifth modernization). Deng Xiaoping made the supremacy of the Party the ideal to which all of society had to sacrifice itself, unleashing an avalanche of abuse and corruption. The 100 thousand "mass incidents" in a year show that the people want to count. Civil society is the only hope for stability in China. Second part of a dossier dedicated to the 60th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China.

60 years of the People’s Republic of China: the Party against the people
The ceremonies of the 1st October aim to celebrate the greatness of China and the supremacy of the Communist Party. But Beijingers are "invited" to stay home.

Give power back to the people, says Bao Tong on the PRC’s 60th anniversary
A former aide to Zhao Ziyang, held by the authorities for 20 years, talks about how Chinese leaders are preparing to celebrate their so-called power, whilst hiding the country’s real problems: corruption, lack of freedom and civil rights, and pollution. He insists that all the people of China want is more democracy and freedom.
