Deng Fei Wants China Netizens to Show Him a Dirty River –Shanghaiist
(Bloomberg/Businessweek) Public agitation within Beijing’s smogosphere–including campaigns by China Netizens and the Obama Administration which in their infinite wisdom has decided that the American people believe, that its a good expenditure of taxpayers money to monitor China’s air quality during a period of apocalyptic scare mongering by ‘Hoax-n-Chains’ across the nation–I digress.
While the China regime has gradually released more data about pollution and for the first time acknowledged the existence of “Cancer Villages” (locations where the exposure to industrial chemicals has led to the elevated levels of cancer) during Chinese New Year, environmental journalist Deng Fei, who in 2009 posted a map online identifying the “Cancer Villages” launched the “Show Me a Dirty River Campaign” encouraging Netizens visiting their hometowns during the holiday, to send in digital photos of polluted rivers, lakes and streams.
Such information is a closely guarded “state secret” in China pursuant of Article 14 which Beijing Attorney Dong Zhengwei recently found out when he recently requested the data from a government survey conducted in 2006 by the ‘Environmental Ministry’ by the China Regime which Dong has filed an appeal arguing its a “clear denial of the public’s right to know and right to monitor,” citing China’s dubious freedom of information regulations.
The Obama Administration like the China Regime, have remained silent on the full investigative report(s) but according to the Epoch Times parts of the Chinese report had been leaked to the public which appeared online recently, leading to the present inquiries of poisoned chemicals in the soil.
On the 28 August, 2011 I wrote here that U.S. clothing manufacturers have been accused of distributing products containing toxic chemicals made in China to suppliers in the United States.
