The Communist Party sends more greetings of the season. A Guizhou court today sentenced another mainland activist, Chen Xi of Guizhou, to 10 years, on subversion charges for his writing. Chen Xi's sentence follows the 9-year sentence on similar charges for Chen Wei passed down by a Sichuan court on December 23. The two Chens are not related to each other.
Zhang Qunxuan reacted to her husband Chen Xi's conviction on subversion charged by asking China's Communist leaders what about her husband worried them so much. "To subvert you - can he do that? Does he have any army? Does he have a police force? Does he have courts? With a piece of paper and a pen, can he subvert you? Are you so fragile?"
