【新唐人2012年5月31日讯】— “300手印”案 周永康亲自下令不准放人—
300 Fingerprints Case, Zhou Yongkang ordered non-release
300 residents in Zhouguantun Village, Botou City,
Hebei Province pressed fingerprints on a petition for
the release of Falun Gong practitioner Mr. Wang Xiaodong,
drawing the attention of the international community.
Mr. Wang has been detained since Feb 25th in
Botou Detention Center.
For more than 3 months, Botou Police neither released him
nor dared to issue his family a warrant for his arrest.
Epoch Times reported that the non-release instruction was
personally given by CCP Political and Judiciary Secretary Zhou Yongkang.
On May 25th, Zhou addressed a seminar on Implementing
Amended Criminal Procedure Law, saying that
government shall focus more on human rights protection,
reflecting on torture and injustice cases.
Mainlanders not only took this as a big joke, but also as Zhou
slapping his own face.
One day after Zhou Yongkang’s speech, Wang Xiaodong’s
sister Wang Xiaomei was arrested at a friend’s residence
in Cangzhou Hebei, along with 2 Falun Gong practitioners,
Kang Lanying and Tang Jianying.
Wang’s family members asked national and public security
offices about these peoples whereabouts, the officers claimed they didn’t know.
One post on China’s internet said, “Even the nation’s leaders
have become a forbidden topic, where are the human rights?!”
Writer Tian You said: “Mr. Kang had better remove the internet
censorship, otherwise he himself will be on the censor list. What a joke."
One thousand Mainlanders transcribe the Universal Declaration of Human Rights
In order to protest China’s 100 writers transcribing
“Mao Zedong’s speech at the Yan’an Forum" and
Chinese authorities’ publishing the “US Human Rights Record,"
which contains confusing information on human rights,
some activists organized a campaign of transcribing
the “Universal Declaration of Human Rights" and
posting their photos online to raise awareness of human rights.
Chinese scholar Xu Zhiyong and journalist Beifeng initiated
the “thousand people transcribing the Universal Declaration" campaign on May 26th.
Hundreds of netizens have posted photos of their transcribed
By May 30th, over 570 transcribed copies had been received.
Beifeng posted all the photos on Google Plus,
forming “the Universal Declaration of Human Rights wall."
According to a Voice of Germany report, Beifeng said
Chinese authorities are busy deleting all photos of transcribed copies on websites and micro-blogs.
Beifeng’s micro-blog account was closed and other activists
micro-blog accounts were blocked for a week due to forwarding the related photos.
Beifeng also said that Buzai Bookstore in Xiamen expressed
a wish to display the participants hand copied declarations as souvenirs in the store,
however, the owner of the store changed his mind
after being threatened to stop by police.
Beifeng believes that these are all signals that show
the authorities do not want to see the activities progress further.
