China: Fujian Netizen, Fan Yanqiong, Released from Prison

Fan Yanqiong, the last of the Fujian 3 netizens still in prison, was quietly released Wednesday morning and allowed to rejoin her family.

This comes just days after filmmaker He Yang released his hour-long documentary, Herzog Days, which revolves around Fujian netizen You Jingyou; it tracks events during the trials and following the release of You and fellow netizen Wu Huaying earlier this summer.

Now with English subtitles, Herzog Days can be viewed below.

    TRUE Record of Chinese atrocities in Tibet
    Over 1.2 million Tibetans died as a direct result of Chinese atrocities.
    Over 6000 monasteries and institutes of learning have been destroyed.
    Precious Tibetan artifacts were vandalized and sold in Hong Kong markets.
    Over 7000 Tibetan religious and historical literature have been destroyed.
    Tibetans in Tibet are second class citizen without any basic Human Rights.
    Tibetan women (even KIDs) are subjected to gang RAPEs; forced abortion and sterilization by the chinese. 70% of Tibetans living in Tibet now are illiterate.
    Arbitrary arrests, torture, intimidation and imprisonment without trial for Tibetans in their country by the chinese. Tibet has been divided into different parts and incorporated with Chinese provinces, thereby removing the existing Tibetan identity.Thousands of Tibetans are still in prisons in China. Tibet’s natural resources and fragile ecology are irreversibly destroyed. 6 Million Tibetans have been outnumbered by 7.5 Million Han Chinese inducted into Tibet, causing Tibetans to be minorities in their own country. The above ways are also used against the Xinjiang Uyghurs’ by the Chinese.

    Xinjiang & Tibet are the two place where the Chinese make / develop nuclear weapons because if any nuclear accident occur, Uyghurs’ & Tibetans’ are the people who will suffer.
