Beijing is flooded by rain; netizens say CCP will be finished
On July 21st a rainstorm flooded Beijing.
Just like other disasters that occur in mainland China,
the official and the civil society have different say.
On July 22nd, the official announced death toll in the flood was
37. However, unofficially hundreds of people died in the flood.
While civilians discuss the lack of effort of the government
in the rescue and the poor urban drainage system, the
Chinese Communist Party (CCP)’s mouthpiece CCTV
broadcast a live interview.
It was with Liu Hongwei, Chief Engineer of Beijing flood
saying that in the flood disaster of this time:
the forecast is quite in place, and so on.
Just after Liu spoke out his remarks, he is immediately called
“brother of being in place” by netizens.
His remarks induced a violent storm of criticism, saying that
he is not afraid of being struck by lightning with nonsensical lies.
Some of the public intellectuals and cultural elite of mainland
China ridicule the current affairs in the microblogg.
They wrote that the CCP is flooded with water, potentially
meaning that the CCP will be over.
Beicun, a famous poet, wrote the first line of a couplet
on July 21st.
“The empire capital has become sea in the center.”
And he seeks the second line and scroll reads for the couplet.
On July 22nd, the well-known scholar Wu Jiaxiang forwarded
a response to the second line of the couplet:
the party State will go to the West Heaven. And the scroll reads
“the empire capital (CCP) is flooded in water.”
The posts triggered onlookers and intense comments from
people of the cultural circle.
Some people responded that “we are waiting for that day.”
On the first anniversary of a high-speed train accident,
media reports of the mourning have been blocked.
July 23rd is the memorial day of the first anniversary of the
“Wenzhou high-speed train accident”.
The media in mainland China keep a collective silence over it.
However, the public people held a memorial service voluntarily.
On that day, dozens of people and media reporters came to the
scene of the accident and donated their flowers for the dead.
Some reporters of mainland China revealed that
CCP authorities banned the media doing follow-up reports.
And family members of the accident victims also received a
ban notice that they can not publicly hold mourning.
The victims’ family members feel anger and despair to it.
Ten lawyers sent a letter to CCP National People’s Congress
regarding to Li Wangyang incident.
The June 4th victim Li Wangyang in Hunan province died
bizarrely in June of this year.
This incident continues to cause concerns from society.
Ten lawyers in mainland China and Hong Kong jointly sent an
open letter to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) on July 23rd.
They wrote to the National People’s Congress and
the Standing Committee,
calling for CCP top authority to conduct immediate
re-investigation into the death of Li Wangyang.
On the conclusion of the Hunan Provincial Public Security that
Li Wangyang died “by his own hanging”, the open letter lists five major points of doubt.
They also point out that the police’s disposal process
was a serious offense,
resulting in a lot of evidence being destroyed
with serious murderous intentions.
The ten lawyers also put forward three demands;
One was a re-investigation into “the death of Li Wangyang”
driven by the National People’s Congress,
and immediately instructing the public security department
to lift the illegal house arrest of Li Wangling and Zhao Baozhu.
And to restore their personal freedom as legitimate citizens.

county in Jiangshu province participated in “July 1st parade” in Hong Kong.
Along with dozens of mainlanders they held banners saying
“We are from mainland China” and “Smash corrupt jails”.
They requested Chinese authorities to stop illegal detention
actions and stop preventing petitioners’ rights of appeal.
However, after they returned to mainland China, they were
immediately detained by Ningdu county police.
Their relatives received police’s notice saying that both
Song Ningsheng and Zeng Jiuzi sentenced for two years in jail,
