Human Rights activists Liu Ping, Wei Zhongping and Li Sihua
in Jiangxi Province were detained by police for allegedly “inciting subversion of state power”.
Observers believe that “inciting subversion of state power”
is a severe political crime.
Three of them were detained at the same time for
the same reason, which is a rare move.

Voice of America cited Beijing activist Hu Jia that “inciting
subversion of state power” usually was for individuals.
By authorities targeting three people at the same time, is to deter
the public domestically without drawing international attention.
This way to avoid paying a high cost politically.

Hu Jia believes that this is a new tactic of
maintaining “stability”.
