Chen applies for leaving next week, is allowed to meet friends

According to Hong Kong’s Ming Pao newspaper, this morning blind activist Chen Guangcheng says that China and America have in the main reached agreement to allow him to leave for America and that he will be allowed to meet his friends before departure. He will leave when his health has recovered.

His good friend Jiang Tianyong said that negotiation between China and America had made smooth progress and the direction of further development had been determined. Both sides adopted “positive attitude”. A Central official who visited Chen was quite kind to Chen. When Chen requested for “meeting old friends” before going abroad, the official immediately approved. However, as Chen’s foot was injured last month when he fled house arrest, he would not leave until the injury has been healed. He said what he worried most was the safety of his relatives back home, especially his mother and nephew. Moreover, he was helped by quite a few friends when he fled house arrest. At present he has lost contact with some of them.

His wife Yuan Weijing said that they have not begun application for their travel documents and did not know when they would leave. According to relevant regulations, it takes 15 working days to get a passport or 5 in urgent case.

Previously, State Department Spokesman Victoria Nuland said that China will provide Chen and his family with travel documents “as soon as possible”. U.S.officials estimate that if things go on smoothly, in the fastest case, Chen may leave within a few days.

The hospital Chen stayed remained guarded by plainclothes police yesterday. They did not allow reporters to enter the hospital, but their number has been reduced. American embassy vehicles entered at about 3:00 pm and stayed for about one hour. Sources say that people from the embassy talked with Chen’s wife. Chen says that embassy people come to visit him everyday but are not allowed into his ward with the only exception on May 4 when they brought a doctor to check Chen’s medical record and laboratory reports.

Shandong Lawyers Association tries to accuse Chen of violation of law.

Chen Guangcheng became a lawyer through self-study, and has not received professional legal training. Recently, Shandong Lawyers Association published a signed “solemn statement” on the Internet, stating that Chen Guangcheng is not a lawyer and that passing for a lawyer by engaging in litigation violates the law and can be reported to the relevant government agency.

Author of the book "Tiananmen's Tremendous Achievements" about how with the help of Tiananmen Protests, talented scholars with moral integrity seized power in the Party and state and brought prosperity to China. The second edition of the book will be published within a few days to mark the 25th anniversary of Tiananmen Protests All the parts in the first edition remain in the second edition with a few changes due to information available later and better understanding. There are also some changes for improvements of style. The new parts are Chapters 12-19 on events in China after the first edition was published: The fierce power struggle for succession between reformists and conservatives; Xi Jinping winning all elders’ support during his mysterious disappearance for 2 weeks in early September, 2012; and Xi Jinping Cyclone. Chan Kai Yee's new book: SPACE ERA STRATEGY: The Way China Beats The US An eye-opening book that tells the truth how the US is losing to China. The US is losing as it adopts the outdated strategy of Air-Sea Battle while China adopts the space era strategy to pursue integrated space and air capabilities: It is losing due to its diplomacy that has given rise to Russian-Chinese alliance. US outdated strategy has enabled China to catch up and surpass the US in key weapons: Hypersonic weapons (HGV) that Pentagon regards as the weapon that will dominate the world in the future. Aerospaceplane in China’s development of space-air bomber that can engage enemy anywhere in the world within an hour and destroy an entire aircraft carrier battle group within minutes. Anti-satellite (ASAT) weapons, anti-ASAT weapons, stealth aircrafts, drones, AEW&C, etc. The book gives detailed descriptions of China’s weapon development based on information mainly from Chinese sources that the author monitors closely. U.S. Must Not Be Beaten by China! China is not a democracy. Its political system cannot prevent the emergence of a despotic leader or stop such a leader when he begins to bring disasters to people. A few decades ago, Mao Zedong, the worst tyrant in world history did emerge and bring disasters to Chinese people. He wanted to fight a nuclear war to replace capitalism with communism but could not bring nuclear holocaust to world people as China was too weak and poor at that time. If a despot like Mao Zedong emerges when China has surpassed the US in military strength, world people will suffer the misery experienced by Chinese people in Mao era. China surpassing the US in GDP is not something to worry about as China has the heavy burden to satisfy its huge population, but China surpassing the US in military strength will be world people’s greatest concern if China remains an autocracy. US people are of much better quality than Chinese people. What they lack is a wise leader to adopt the correct strategy and diplomacy and the creative ways to use its resources in developing its military capabilities. I hope that with the emergence of a great leader, the US can put an end to its decline and remain number one in the world.
