Chinese Communist Party Changed It’s Suppression Model
In May, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) arrested a large
number of human rights lawyers, media people, dissidents and
human rights defenders.
The suppression is on a scale that exceeds that of
the past 10 years.
According to some figures compiled by Human Rights
Defenders there have been about 70 human rights activists
and dissidents detained from the end of April to May 31.
RFI reported that mainland human rights lawyer Teng Biao
believes that the CCP crackdown has changed to clean-up
mode from the recent stability maintenance mode, which
won’t stop even after June 4th.
Only a few of those detained activists and dissidents will
be released, he thinks.
Some independent mainland reporters agree and believe this
phase will last from three to five years.
Teng Biao told RFI that the large number of arrests in May is
not just because the June 4 memorial is approaching but a peak
arrest phase since the suppression mode changed.
