|Action: Expose Censors on Chinese Riots|
ACTION: Expose Chinese Censors on their 80,000 riots per year.
That's right.¬† Eighty Thousand riots in China per year against the police and government authorities for Property Rights, Human Rights investigations, endemic corruption and more.
Recently, an article talked about a riot erupting in Shishou in Hubei Province.¬†¬† A few highlights from the article.
‚ÄĘTens of thousands of rioters torched a hotel and overturned police cars, after the authorities allegedly tried to cover up the murder of a 24-year-old man as a suicide.
‚ÄĘA huge mob, of anywhere between a few thousand to 70,000 people, depending on which report you read, quickly gathered outside the building.
‚ÄĘWhat's extraordinary is the speed in which the riot blew up, and the venom directed against the local authorities. Whatever was behind Tu's death, there's clearly something rotten in Shishou.¬† But after months of calm, there have been a spate of reported riots recently. Is this because media restrictions have been lifted, allowing news of riots to spread, or has there been a genuine increase in social tension in the countryside?¬† It is impossible to tell. China no longer publishes the figures for how many riots take place each year, but most people put the figure at around 80,000 and the vast majority go totally unnoticed.
