Chinese Human Rights Activist Hu Jia Tweeted Found his Car Vandalized This Morning, Is This Another Warning to him by the China Regime?
On the 05 January, 2008 I wrote here that Chinese authorities arrested Hu Jia at his Beijing home accusing him of “Subverting State Authority” a charge often times used against dissidents.
In August, Foreign Policy reprinted an open letter by Hu Jia to the China regime in which he described his life as a “prisoner of conscience” and being under constant surveillance by Chinese authorities, preventing most people from visiting him.
“I’m not alone. All Chinese dissidents are in prison, some are in official prisons, guarded by police that stand behind high walls and electric wires, others are in societal prisons buttressed by “stability maintenance” the name the Chinese Communist Party’s system of controlling what it sees as unstable elements and some like me, move back and forth between the two.”
In July, Radio Free Asia published a photo of Hu Jia after he reportedly was beaten up by “trained men’ (plainclothes cops) on a Beijing street.
Isn’t it ironic and quite frightening, that the annual Beijing Forum on Human Rights kicked off this week when the China regime has such a dismal human rights record.
