Chinese authorities moved quickly and with force to quash a pro-democracy 'Jasmine Revolution', believed to have been inspired by the recent uprisings in the Middle East and North Africa. More police than usual were scrambled to line the streets today, and there were a number of activists detained after online sites had organised staged protests in Beijing, Shanghai and 11 other major cities. Citizens were urged to shout: 'We want food, we want work, we want housing, we want fairness' - a slogan that highlights common complaints among ordinary Chinese.

Where is Obama’s statement telling the Chinese leaders to “moderate” their reaction and resign, as he was quick to tell Mubarak?
Clue: Mubarak was a friends of the US, China is an enemy of the US. Obama only wants to get rid of leaders of countires friendly to the US.
The 85-90% of the Chinese who have not benefited from the so-called economic miracle.
I would love to see the Chinese people stand up to the overlords en masse. There are plenty of them. If that happened, what would 0 do and how would 0 react?
The difference between the rich and the poor in china is massive. That disparity cannot continue with out some serious consequences.
Talk about lame a$$ hypocrite.
Is because so few muzzies there , Barry?
I doubt whether this will go anywhere. The Chinese won’t hesitate to use whatever force is necessary to quell the protests. They’ll have ten police for every protestor.
That name “Jasmine Revolution” makes me wonder if Soros didn’t instigate this. He has been behind any number of revolutions, and he often uses that kind of symbolic color language. And occasionally, he even gets on the right side, as he did when the Republic of Georgia and Ukraine revolted against Russia.
Obama to make a statement about Egypt.
Looks like 13 major cities intend now to demonstrate throughout China. The communication to charge up the people is coming from outside China.
With the push for demonstrations world wide I am beginning to think ....”this is a systematic orchestrated effort for worldwide unrest”..... Perfect setup for the G-20 to usher in their plans for one world governance in order to bring “peace” and “order” to an otherwise chaotic world.
Just to many similarities of the groups hopping on board this train.
The best thing a freedom-loving chinese citizen could do is leave the country and set up shop elsewhere, which is not an easy thing to do.
I have a message to any Chinese dissidents who may be reading this post:
If the government gets violent with you, SHOOT THE SUITS! Don’t waste time fighting cops; it just antagonizes people who should be on your side. Go after the leaders wherever you find them. If you don’t have firearms, edged weapons or blunt objects will do.
Free your country from the oligarchs!
“SHOOT THE SUITS!”
lol. How many suits would change things? 100k?
China also has historically Mohammadan regions - anyone know what’s happening there?
The number of families that run and profit from China Inc. is about 100 IIRC. Throw in the worst of local party leaders, corrupt bureaucrats, sadistic police officials, and .....
100,000 is a good start!
China has a history of oppressed peasants rising up in unison to overthrow corrupt, incompetent governments.
Obama rebukes another US friend:
Obama to Hamad: Show restraint
“President Obama spoke Friday night with Bahrain’s King Hamad bin Isa Al-Khalifa, the White House said. Here’s a readout of the call:
The President reiterated his condemnation of the violence used against peaceful protesters, and strongly urged the government of Bahrain to show restraint”
Enemies of the US, on the other hand, have nothing to fear from Obama...
It’s like everyone is protesting,,,,,,everywhere!
Decapitation pre-emptive strike by the regime. That model may apply here as well. We cannot be guranteed there will be elections in 2012 that the left will accept losing.
I know that I have seen articles about the Chicom Oligarchy in the past. However, a search turns up little.
Do the Chicoms have the power to delete references to their country off the web?
I’m sure they monitor what we write here on FR.
To the poor twit who is assigned to read and shape our opinions,
“How does it feel to serve the New Mandarins? Do they still have the mandate of Heaven? Seems to me they are much more interested in enriching their families than they are in spreading prosperity for all of the peasants. Your leaders let industrialists poison your food, land, water, and air if the bribes are paid on time. If your people had the Second Amendment, your leaders would be much better servants of the great Chinese culture and people.”
