How Chinese People REALLY Feel About Their Government
This is Chinese human rights lawyer Chen Guangcheng. He’s blind, but that didn’t stop him from teaching himself law, and then advocating for the rights of China’s disenfranchised. In 2005, Chen organized a lawsuit against local authorities in Shandong over the forced abortions they used to enforce China’s one child policy. Did he win the case? Haha, no. Authorities simply arrested him. He was sent to prison for four years for damaging property and disturbing traffic. Yes, disturbing traffic.
