The Unscrupulous Artist? Communists vs. Civilians
On its official Weibo page, Chinese Communist Youth League
(CYL) called for sanctions on Hong Kong artists who support
Occupy Central such as Anthony Wong, Chapman To,
Denise Ho and others.
The Communists label them “criminals" but many Chinese
netizens honor them as “conscientious artists."
Good or no good, what is the standard?
The CYL Central Committee conducted an online poll
on Oct. 21 regarding Hong Kong pro-Occupy Central artists
such as Anthony Wong, Chapman To and Denise Ho.
The poll was called, “Which way would you choose
to resist these unscrupulous artists?”
Possible sanction methods are banning of ‘Occupy
Central’ artists from performing or broadcasting
in mainland China, deleting ‘Occupy Central’ artists’
microblog accounts, and more.
According to an RFI report, AFP indicated CYL is tasked with
indoctrinating the youths in China with Communist ideology.
Former Hebei People’s Radio Editor Zhu Xinxin:
“The CCP stigmatize these Occupy Central artists
through this labeling activity.
The regime is playing deceiving people into thinking
that the CCP represents the authority in truth.
In fact, to those who have independent ideals,
the CCP does not represent the authority."
On Chinese Twitter, netizens call these artists
“the conscience of the artists."
Netizen “Eight Horses" wrote, “The CYL proposed sanction
on Tencent microblog against Hong Kong artists
Anthony Wong, Chapman To, Denise Ho and many others.
But, the netizens fully support these artists of conscience."
Similar situations have occurred in the 1989 Tiananmen
Famous Taiwanese singer Teresa Teng supported
the pro-democracy movement by joining the protest
in Happy Valley, Hong Kong, and performed the song
“My Home on the Other Side of the Mountain"
to the 300,000 participants.
She has never set foot in the mainland in her lifetime
because of this act.
In a 2009 online poll, “the most influential cultural figures"
by the Communist State Council Information Office,
she topped the list.
In this Hong Kong pro-democracy movement, the contrasting
difference between the regime and the people once again
showed in the standard of conscience.
What is the generally recognized conscience in China?
Zhu Xinxin: “If a person is not even qualified as a human,
how can this person engage in art?
Artists earn their reputation not just by their work,
but most importantly their stand on worldly matters.
The value is the conscience which cannot be violated
by the authority or commercial interest."
Famous Japanese musician Ryuichi Sakamoto showed his
support to Occupy Central by clicking Like on Facebook.
“Western celebrities including long-time activist Mia Farrow
and former ‘Star Trek’ star George Takei have also taken
to social media to express support for the pro-democracy
movement," reported AFP.
While Beijing labeled the artists as unscrupulous,
the Communist media were criticized as lacking basic
‘conscience’ in the report of the dialogue between
the Hong Kong government and the students.
In the Wednesday report, media including the Global Times
and the Beijing Times have all mentioned the HK
government’s requirements and statements,
but rarely the demands of the students.
Only the People’s Daily overseas press briefly mentioned
students demand to withdraw Beijing’s political reform
decision and the implementation of civil nomination
in the dialogue, but emphasized these demands as “illegal."
Sun Wenguang, former Shandong University Professor:
“These things have repeatedly showed that the Communist
authorities block true information by monopolizing
and controlling the media.
They also detain people and keep mainlanders from going
This shows the ulterior motives— forbidding people
from going to Hong Kong to find out the truth."
The live broadcast of the dialogue was not made viewable
The regime’s Global Times only continues to issue stern
warnings after the dialogue.
Then look at today’s activist events across the continent
