尽管如此，刘翔的 “裸会” 还是引起了众怒。3月5号，原湖北潜江市人大代表姚立法与各地90多位公民，联名在海外中文《博讯》网上发表“致全国政协十一届四次会议建议书”，呼吁撤销刘翔等人的政协委员资格。
Former Olympic champion in the 110-meter hurdles
Liu Xiang attended the two meetings as a delegate
to the CPPCC. But he had submitted no proposals.
Authorities want media to keep a low key on it.
Still, it caught people’s attention. On March 5,
90 Chinese citizens jointly filed a statement,
calling to disqualify Liu as a CPPCC member.
But some netizens suggest following his example.
Let’s take a look at the story.
As CPPCC member, Liu Xiang had prepared
two proposals in last year’s “two meetings.”
But this year, he had none.
He was blamed for coming to the meeting “naked.”
The Communist Party set many restrictions to
the media coverage of the two meetings.
Media are not supposed to mention “political reform”,
“the Lei (shocking) proposals,” or to follow around
the celebrity representatives.
Liu Xiang’s “naked attendance” is also a taboo.
People were irritated by his shirking responsibilities.
On March 5, former representative of Hubei Province,
Yao Lifa, along with 90 local residents, sent a statement
to overseas’ boxun.com, calling the CPPCC to revoke
Liu Xiang’s membership.
Some blogs said, Liu Xiang came to the meetings
without any proposal.
This disqualifies him from being a member of CPPCC.
The blog used a cartoon to illustrate the point.
Many called Liu Xiang a rep “to purchase soy sauce,”
meaning someone who only minds his own business.
Netizens said, “Can the reps really represent people?
Some went there to help people solving problems.
Some are there just to make trouble.
And others are there ‘to purchase soy sauce,’
which drives me away in disgust, like Liu Xiang. ”
Yao Lifa gave examples of CPPCC members who
gave shockingly ridiculous proposals and remarks
during the previous “two meetings”. For example,
Chairman of the real estate 500 Mao Yonghong said,
“If people don’t have the purchase power for houses,
Don’t blame the government or developers.
The housing price cannot be suppressed.”
Not all criticized Liu Xiang for his “vase” role.
A netizen said, “Having heard enough of
the wicked remarks from the representatives,
I am so moved by Liu Xiang’s ‘zero proposal.’
If he produced similar wicked remarks, how could
tens of thousands of fans like us bear it? ”
Another netizen wrote on Liu’s photo,
“They pretend to have meeting.
And we pretend to care.
But so far, are there any meaningful proposals?”
Yao Lifa suggested in his statement, people like
Xu Youyu, Qin Yongmin, Ai Weiwei, and Hu Xingdou
could do a better job as CPPCC members.
He recommended having them in the meetings.
Yao also said, due to the Jasmine gatherings and his
publishing the statement, his freedom was restricted.
