What is China’s low-end population?
Criticism is growing after hundreds of thousands of migrants were expelled from the city of Beijing, dubbed “low-end” people in Chinese media. For the great dissident Wei Jingsheng, this expression is a sign of the feudal legacy still found in the Communist Party of China, which considers itself the niche of the elite and rightful government. Instead, under the latter, man has been reduced to the cog of a wheel, an animal only worthy of work.

“Temporary residence permit system for migrants illegal”
This was maintained by a group of lawyers in Henan defending the rights of migrants. Big cities use the regulation to keep unwanted migrants under control and to send them away. After exploiting migrants for years to get cheap labour, now more and more cities want to expel them.
20 million migrant children discriminated in public schools
It is hard for them to get a place in schools in large cities, because they are not recognised as residents there. Often, their only option is to attend private schools run by volunteers.
