An Appeal of the retired People Daily employees against violent demolition.

----------



Dear Mr Chief Editor,



We are a group of retired media workers living in the People's Daily Dormitory, No. 28, Guanghuali, Jianguomenwai, Chaoyang District, Beijing. We are writing to you to ask for a corner of your newspaper to reveal an event as follows:



On April 28, 2009, an astonishing event happened in the CBD Commercial Zone in Changyang District, only 7-8 kilometers away from Zhongnanhai where the authority locates. My neighbor, the family of Tan Haiyang, whose father Tan Li used to be the Party secretary of the People's Daily and the member of the Editors' Commission, was relocated by the "People's" Government of Chaoyang District, and their home was violently demolished (the details are attached)!! They were relocated to leave land for the so-called "The Demonstrative High School of Ritan Middle School", which is in fact an aristocratic shool, a project for show, as well as a chance of corruption!! Liu Zhihua, the former vice-mayor of Beijing, and Zhou Liangluo, former deputy head of Chaoyang District, had been penalized for this kind of corruption.

It is rediculous that we the retired workers of the People's Daily were the victim of the violent demolition! We have been working for the People's Daily for the life and bought the house with all our asset! The houses should have been the last shelters for us and be protected by the Constitution and the Property Law. Now we encounter such a fate! We can't accept this kind of violence!

for nearly two years we had been appealed before Mr Liu Qi, Mayor of Beijing, and other offices like Beijing Education Bureau, the State Petition Administration, and Wang Chen, the former president of People's Daily. We have appealed to Wang Chen for more than ten times but received no replies. In this capital city, human rights are nothing!



What's more, our legitimate and legal appeals could not be accepted and spred by the press like Xinhua.net, People.com.cn (People's Daily website), etc., let alone be heard by the supreme authority. We have no other choice but to appeal before you! Give us, these elders, a hand to let the world see what the "People's" Government have done to omit the Constitution, the human rights, in nowadays, in the 21st century! Remember, the day of April 28, 2008, witnessed the shame of the so-called ***!!!



Regards



Yours sincerely

China does indeed have a very long way to go before it understands such issues as human rights and social justice. Similar things have happened all over China with people being displaced from homes where their family have lived for centuries and of course for the Olympics.

Generally it does appear to be the very poor who suffer most. Hopefully this might get people a bit more interested in such things for the good of all .

It'll be decades before that happen. In South Korea, that took 60 years to happen. In a country like China, it'll be almost a decade. And in South Korea, there's no freedom of speech and no freedom of assembly.

China's leadership is going to be changed in 2012. Premier Wen Jiabao is promoting democracy and human rights in China. Maoist high rank Bo Xilai was removed from power. And human rights lawyer Chen Guangcheng was freed. I wish all these factors will contribute to a substantial change to democratization.

The Chinese people is longing for democracy.
