Baidu Unbars Sensitive Word “Shen Yun” Again
On March 23, around 8pm, Mainland China’s largest search
engine Baidu showed search results for information on “Shen Yun Performing Arts 2012” again.
A few days ago, Baidu temporarily unlocked “Falun Gong,”
“False Fire,” and “Shen Yun Performing Arts.”
These are all “highest level ban” contents.
According to sources, “Shen Yun” has been
unblocked at least twice in the past few days.
On the night of March 21st EST, Baidu unblocked
“Shen Yun Performing Arts.”
It allowed the Shen Yun official website in search results.
Chinese Affair Expert Shi Zangshan, believes that
since Wang Lijun escaped to the U.S Consulate,
high levels of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)
started full-scale internal strife.
“Falun Gong” is now the center of this struggle.
He analyzed Baidu unblocking sensitive contents like
“Shen Yun Performing Arts” and “Zhuan Falun”.
It indicates Hu Jintao and Wen Jiabao have fundamental
disagreements with the Jiang faction regarding continuation of the persecution of Falun Gong.
This also shows that fighting between Hu-Wen
and Zhou Yongkang has escalated.
On March 23, someone posted an article on a Mainland
website urging everyone to help news reporter Gao Yingpu.
He was jailed three years ago for criticizing Bo Xilai
fighting black campaign in Chongqing.
The article said Gao Yingpu graduated from Wuhan
University’s journalism department in 1983.
Gao worked for Asia-Pacific Economic Times
and Chinese Business Times.
Near the end of 2009, he was jailed for writing diaries
on his QQ page.
They criticized Chongqing fighting the black campaign.
He was the charged with “suspicion
of crimes against state security,"
Voice of America reported that Beijing lawyer Li Zhuang
who spent 1.5 years in jail for getting involved in Chongqing fighting black case.
He received daily mails regarding injustices caused by the
fighting black campaign.
He believes, after Bo Xilai is removed of office,
many cases of injustices will surface.
Many of the victims and victims’ family will reveal truth
regarding torture used during interrogation.
On the afternoon of March 22, three Tibetans were on
hunger strike for one month in front of U.N. Headquarters in New York.
They ended hunger strikes after UN human rights official
promised to investigate human rights conditions in Tibet.
Two UN officials gave the two Tibetans a signed letter from
U.N. High Commissioner on Human Rights Navi Pillay.
Tibetan Youth Congress President Tsewang Rinzin told
media what Pillay expressed in the letter.
“UN officials already contacted the Chinese regime,
seeking entry into Tibet to conduct investigations.
They are discussing specific dates right now.”
Tibetan Xiang Sarenboqie said that it’s not that they don’t
treasure their own lives.
However, Tibetans under CCP rule suffer much more.
Especially recently, 30 people set themselves on fire
in protest. He hopes the UN can support Tibetans.
