She went from being promoted as an international star in Chinas state media after winning Miss World Canada to seeing her fathers livelihood destroyed because she wouldnt stay quiet about the human rights abuses in her home country.
Now, Anastasia Lin is a scholar-in-residence for one month with the Australian think tank the Centre for Independent Studies.
The 29-year-old, described in a Globe and Mail editorial as the beauty queen that China saw and ran away from, revealed in an intimate interview that she has been told by many Chinese diasporas around the world that they worry about persecution from their fellow Chinese, including their own family members, due to the culture of fear instilled in Chinese minds by the communist party.
She said that the communists in China have laboured to create a very artificial fear among the populace, leading many mainland Chinese to feel obligated to persecute people who stand up to the government.
Youre obligated to stand by the party line and to suppress your fellow Chinese, Lin said in an interview with the Menzies Research Centre think tank.

I guess she’s not going back any time soon.
Beauty and the Bejing Beast
Sad. Fearing the possible harm from government workers is not reasonable. Fearing the possible loss of the Lord’s blessings is very reasonable. Each person is free to choose his fears.
It’s the followers that are the worst.
“Each person is free to choose his fears.”
This is China, not the US. And she is a Canadian citizen from Toronto, a graduate of the University of Toronto, and a Miss World winner representing Canada.
She has a Bachelor of Arts in theatre and minor in history and political science and has based her career of acting in films that deal with human rights issues in her country of birth, China. Her VISA request turned down by the Chinese government was for 2015. This is not new.
When Lin competed for the first Miss World Canada title in 2013, she dedicated her piano composition to “those who lost their life for their faith and the millions of people still fighting for their faith today. This was directed at China. And she wonders why they don’t want her to come to China. She asked for it.
Why are people shocked whenever these revelations surface? Anyone who has learned about how these governments came to power know that torture and murder are the foundations of their power. Why would that change? Governments dont gravitate toward benevolence; the contrary is the norm.
She asked for it???????
Then Nathan Hale asked for it too........as did Vicki Weaver and her 14 year old son Sammy.......
You and I aren’t shocked.
But I’d be surprised if 40 percent of the under 30 crowd knew what form of Government China had.
I would be glad to comfort this poor girl
China needs to make a major change.
I have read numerous accounts of Westerners who have worked in China. Chinese people are drones and will never rise up against the chicoms Years of indoctrination.
Attitude may change in the future.
As does anyone who care defy the democrats in this country. Right?
She’s hot and I feel terrible for her.
I have one more feeling:
We’re not super far behind China.
Can you think of any communist country where the people are happy?
She is describing the democrat party and hollywood.
Stay in line or else!
This is what the Democrat party is trying create here in the U.S.A. Wake up America!
Good for her for speaking out.
How many movies have we seen on the Tienanmen Square massacre, where maybe as many as 10,000 were killed? Damn Hollywood hypocrites!
