Marxism Works

Presented with much fanfare as the main document of the CCP’s 100th anniversary, a long text on “The CCP: Its Mission and Contributions” has been published on August 26 by the Propaganda Department (now renamed in English the “Publicity Department”) of the Party’s Central Committee. That it has been published both in Chinese and in English, which recently is not often the case for CCP documents, is in itself important.

The document, besides celebrating the achievements and victories of the CCP in 100 years, appears to have been devised to counter two allegations, which mightily disturb President Xi Jinping. The first, which comes from Western media and some Western scholars, is that the CCP is no longer Marxist.

The second, which is more present within China but also scares some foreign investors, is that the CCP under Xi Jinping is becoming again too much Marxist, which may eventually damage Chinese economy and the value of foreign investments.

Mass Protest Movement

Dilnaz Kerim had just one request, “Find My Family.” And now, nobody can stop her. Her family have had enough of lies and stalling. They are begging the British government to take the disappearance of their loved ones seriously and meet with her to discuss a way forward.

Gathering outside Downing Street in London last week the Uyghur teenager and her supporters called on UK Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab to meet with her and help find her family.

The 18-year-old’s “Find My Family” movement is gaining momentum with the added backing of the teenage advocacy movement “Burst The Bubble UK,” whose leader Jonathan Gibson pleaded with the closed doors of Number 10 to listen and face up to the Chinese government over the disappearance of Dilnaz’s family and hundreds and thousands of others who have vanished.
