China: Thousands of protesters occupied Qidong government office

Police and protesters clash in Qidong

Hong Kong’s Ming Pao reports, “A mass of people broke into Jiangsu Province’s Qidong City Government yesterday morning in protest of a waste water discharge project, which they claimed would cause pollution.” According to China’s official Xinhua News Agency, several thousand people took part in the demonstration.

“Xinhua reports, about 6:00 am, a large-scale mass demonstration took place in Qidong City, Nantong, Jiangsu in protest of the waste water discharge to the sea area near Qidong by Japan’s Oji Paper. According to the estimate by Xinhua’s reporter on the spot, several thousand people took part in the demonstration.

“According to separate media reports earlier, the incident concerns a Japanese paper manufacturer’s plan to build the outlet of its waste water at Qidong, Jiangsu. It has given rise to people’s concern and worry for quite a few days, and some people expressed their opposition through the Internet and by other communications means.

“This morning, a large number of people broke into the City Government, occupied its building, pushed down its gate and broke lots of glass windows. Police were present at the site for surveillance and control but did not take any action. At about 9:00 am, riot police arrived at the site.

“Besides, Qidong City Government issued a notice on its official website this morning, calling for the people to comply with discipline. The notice says:

“Dear Comrade Citizens,

You are all very much concerned about Nantong’s large project of up-to-standard water discharge to the sea. Nantong City Government has studied the issue and environmental impact of the project is being assessed now. Citizens’ opinions will be solicited widely and listened to. If the mass of citizens do not consent, implementation of the project will cease in Qidong. Please do satisfactorily maintain Qidong’s good situation of development and comply with the discipline. Please pay attention to your health in the heat of this summer.”

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.
