  • Petitioners Refute Xinhua's Claim of Declining Numbers

    Every year, tens of thousands of Chinese people travel from around the country to Beijing. But it's not for fun. They're there to air their grievances; hoping central authorities can help them. They are China's vast number of petitioners. They turn to petitioning offices around the country when local courts or officials either cannot or choose not to address their plights. Their complaints range from labor disputes to environmental damage to forced home evictions. When local offices fail, they turn to Beijing. On Thursday, Chinese state-run Xinhua News Agency said since 2005, petitioner numbers have fallen for seven years straight. It says this signals the petitioning system is improving, and the public's rights are being protected. But not everyone agrees, especially petitioners thems...

Every year, tens of thousands of Chinese people travel from around the country to Beijing. But it's not for fun. They're there to air their grievances; hoping central authorities can help them. They are China's vast number of petitioners. They turn to petitioning offices around the country when local courts or officials either cannot or choose not to address their plights. Their complaints range from labor disputes to environmental damage to forced home evictions. When local offices fail, they turn to Beijing. On Thursday, Chinese state-run Xinhua News Agency said since 2005, petitioner numbers have fallen for seven years straight. It says this signals the petitioning system is improving, and the public's rights are being protected. But not everyone agrees, especially petitioners themselves. [Yi Dengzhen, Petitioner from Hubei Province] "It's wrong, wrong. There are more and more petitioners. The old issues don't get resolved. New issues come up, and there are actually more petitioners now." Keeping the number of petitions down is a major focus for China's communist authorities. Chinese leaders see them as a source of instability, and local governments are either punished or rewarded depending on how they keep a lid on petitioners. Petitioners frequently report being illegally detained and abused by authorities. Local governments are known to set up checkpoints around Beijing, and intercept individuals from their jurisdiction before they make it to the capital. A petitioner from northern Heilongjiang province says the detentions spike during politically sensitive dates. [Ru Jicheng, Petitioner from Heilongjiang Province] "This year's 18th Party Congress is much stricter than during the Beijing Olympics. Local authorities try to hold on to their positions, and will do anything to arrest us. The police even told us if they do anything, the government will back them up." The Chinese regime is currently preparing for its 18th Party Congress, to be held on November 8th. Xinhua's report followed a call by China's Ministry of Justice to, quote "comprehensively investigate petitioning issues to welcome the 18th Party Congress".

Wide shot of meeting 25. Wide exterior shot of Zhongnanhai state guesthouse STORYLINE The leader of Myanmar's ruling junta met with China's future leader on Wednesday on the second day of his visit to China. Senior Gen. Than Shwe, the chairman of the ruling State Peace and Development Council, met with vice president Hu Jintao at the Great Hall of the People. China is a close economic and military ally of a regime that is shunned by the West for suppressing democracy. Wednesday's meeting took place after the General met with Chinese president Jiang Zemin where the two parties concluded by signing agreements for the two countries to cooperate in a number of areas like trade, health and sports. According to Chinese State news agency, Xinhua, China is to offer 200 (m) million U.S. dollars in preferential loans to Myanmar to aid its economic development. Border trade and narcotics interdiction were also believed to be among the key issues discussed by the two sides. Myanmar is a world leader in the cultivation of opium and the illegal production of heroin. Citing provincial government figures, Xinhua reported 70 per cent of all drugs seized in China in 2002 came from southwest China's Yunnan province which borders the notorious Golden Triangle region that includes Myanmar. The report went on to say that Yunnan province have conducted several cross-border campaigns with the Myanmar and Laos police in an effort to crack down on drugs manufacturing and trafficking. Than Shwe is accompanied by his wife and a 63-member official delegation that includes the No. 3 junta leader, Gen. Khin Nyunt, and the ministers for foreign affairs, agriculture, energy and information, officials said. Khin Nyunt also on Wednesday met with newly elected Politburo member Luo Gan. The Myanmar's junta leader is expected to meet with Chinese premier Zhu Rongji and chairman Li Peng later Wednesday before the group flies to Chengde to visit factories. Than Shwe last visited China in 1996. Myanmar's military regime has relied heavily on China for economic support and weapons since it came to power in 1988 after crushing popular protests for democracy. The junta's actions have often been compared to Beijing's Tiananmen Square crackdown in 1989. China also does not join the international criticism of the junta over its refusal to accept the general election victory of democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi in 1990. According to Chinese statistics, bilateral trade totals 600 (m) million U.S. dollars annually, making China Myanmar's third largest trading partner after Singapore and Thailand - though that official figure probably underestimates trade that goes unreported across their shared border. Impoverished Myanmar, also known as Burma, offers China a potential path to the Indian Ocean.

But the threat of a health crisis seemed to be easing, as medical aid began arriving and construction began on several military field hospitals. On Tuesday, the Asian Development Bank announced a total of 60 (m) million US dollars in grants and low-interest loans to Indonesia for rebuilding costs in the earthquake zone. A 44-member team of doctors, search and rescue workers and seismologists from China arrived with 5 tonnes of supplies including a field hospital, the official Xinhua News Agency reported. Dr Hou Shi Ke, coordinator of the Chinese medical and rescue team, said their first priority was to treat the injuries and then to assess how much medicine would be required. Thailand said it would send 48 military medical personnel along with medicine and equipment. Teams from Malaysia, Taiwan and other nations are already working in the area. "We came here to rescue after the earthquake in Indonesia. Bantul is a seriously damaged area so we have 20 per cent of our rescue team and three doctors and two nurses. We come here to assist theses local people", Michael Chu, Leader of Taiwainese rescue team, said. The airport in the historic city of Yogyakarta, the one closest to the area worst hit by Saturday's quake, reopened after cracks in the runway were repaired. Two US Marines cargo planes were among the first aid flights to land. About 20 US Marines arrived in Yogyakarta and unloaded heavy lifting machinery and a portable field hospital. The quake pounded tens of thousands of homes into piles of bricks, tiles and wood in less than a minute, as many victims slept or were preparing breakfast. The death toll from the government's Social Affairs Ministry on Tuesday stood at 5,698.

With a No. 10 jersey of the national team’s captain for visiting Editor-in-Chief He Ping of China's official Xinhua News Agency, Argentinean Vice President and Senate Head Amado Boudou expressed the warmth and hospitality of the second largest soccer nation in Latin America. During the meeting on Nov. 13 in capital city Buenos Aires, He Ping in return presented a classic porcelain plate as gift for Boudou to celebrate his upcoming birthday. Amid frankness and friendliness, He Ping briefed Boudou about China’s recent development and future aims. (Soundbite) He Ping, Editor-in-Chief of Xinhua News Agency “China's economy maintains consistent and stable growth. We have a 6.9% growth rate for the first three quarters of this year, which is a relatively high speed in world perspective. I think it helps stabilize the world economy.” He Ping’s two-day visit trailed the signing of a cooperative agreement between Xinhua and the Senate in July for information exchange and enhancement of mutual understanding. Xinhua’s nearly 40-year presence in Argentina has already borne rich fruits, as can be seen from the LED screen in downtown Buenos Aires that displays Xinhua news updates and information 24 hours a day.

A J-15 fighter jet completed a series of difficult take-off-and-landing tests on the Liaoning aircraft carrier, state media reported yesterday.The aircraft completed the manoeuvres while heavily loaded on Sunday, Xinhua said. The report did not say how the aircraft was equipped, but added that it was carrying various weapons. "The tests were complicated. The test items ranged from easy to difficult levels," the Xinhua report said, adding that the practise runs served as a "foundation for the Liaoning to continue with more in-depth training and experiments". The development of the J-15 is a key step in the PLA Navy's ambitions to build a "blue water" carrier battle group. Two J-15 jets made successful landings on the Liaoning last year. Beijing-based naval expert Li Jie was quoted on the website of the People's Daily as saying the various J-15 load-outs would aid understanding about the compatibility of the carrier. Retired People's Liberation Army colonel Yue Gang said real ammunition might be used in the next stage of training. "More missions can be carried out if the fighter jet can carry more types of weapons on board," he said. "So far, the tests conducted for the aircraft carrier have achieved satisfactory results and the progress is substantial." Last month, President Xi Jinping observed a training session on the carrier, and called on the military to continue improving its capabilities. Xi, who is also chairman of the Central Military Commission, called on the Liaoning's captain and commissar to help build a strong navy.
