2011: Translations from Selected Sina Microblogs on Wukan Village Incident Part I

Translations from Selected Sina Microblogs on Wukan Village Incident December 16, 2011

Qu wat: #Wukan Village# The escalation of the Wukan Village incident this December has become the banner of our desire for freedom. This is the kind of mass incident rarely seen in recent decades. It shows that the nature of mass incidents in China has begun to change. Now Wukan Village is in anarchy but the villagers themselves are keeping things in order. One villager who was arrested, Xue Jinbo, had an illness after being confined for three days, he was sent to the hospital for treatment but it was not effective so he died.

Angry Talented Woman: They have no scruples about hanging the label “infiltration of foreign enemy forces” on these innocent villagers. They want to rely on that to repress the resistance of the masses into nothingness. [A quote from the ancient philosopher Lao Zi] ‘The people do not fear death, so how can [the authorities] make them fear death?’ Therefore the incident gets bigger and bigger, and exhausts the political resources of the local authorities. There is the old saying “If you cannot sweep your own roof of snow, how can you expect to sweep clean all under heaven?” To Wang Yang it was said “If ruling even a village is hard, how can all under heaven be ruled?” Bearing the burden of the Wukan Incident, this kind of negative political capital, how can Wang Yang hope to be promoted at the Eighteenth Congress of the Chinese Communist Party?”

Angry Talented Woman: The Wukan rights defense case became steadily more serious, it was repeatedly a shame to the image of Guangdong Province, and it is tied to the political prospects of the Guangdong Party Secretary at the Eighteenth Party Congress. If a little village is so hard to rule, however can one hope to rule a grand and magnificent country of 1.3 billion people? Ever since the Wukan incident erupted in September, the Guangdong authorities have alternately used carrot and stick tactics on the villagers. They tried everything, negotiations, firing village cadres, and met some of the villagers’ demands. By their actions, they turned a small incident into a big incident.

The world media is watching China’s Wukan Village http://t.cn/Sthv7y All the Chinese communist officials were kicked out of the village.

The Bitter words of a Peasant: the people have suffered greatly from the corruption of the Lufeng government. Wukan is just a small village. Even thought the people had only a little bit of land it was nonetheless all gobbled up. Young peasants depend on looking for work in other places to make a living. The elderly mostly make their living from fishing. In this incident, the Lufeng government took by force farmland and gave it to the Bigui Garden Development Company which wanted seaside properties. Without the consent of the peasants, they stole 4.8 billion RMB and made the entire village furious. What can drive a peasant more deeply into despair than this? The distortion of the facts in the media made this incident even more serious.

Seventh Armored Expedition: The 41st and 42nd group armies of the PLA have already temporarily relinquished their task of defense against Vietnam and Taiwan and are hurrying towards Lufeng City. It is expect that they will form a second and a third lines of armored encirclement of Wukan Village. Moreover, the 38th group army subordinate to the Beijing Defense District is already urgently being shifted for garrison duty. Currently its movements and garrison destination are unclear.

Fashionable Me: For some time some Guangdong officials http://t.cn/ScS1UI have been reporting on Wukan but nobody took it seriously.

@刘继兴:1945年6月中苏双方在莫斯科举行多次会谈,最后蒋介石的国民政府同意在“苏联不援助中共”等条件下,允许外蒙古独立。 1946年1月5日,国民政府正式承认外蒙古的独立。 从此中国也成为了历史上唯一的在胜利的时候,还丢失大片国土的“战胜国”。
