Popular Discontent

This is well worth a read. This protest open letter is a rare occurance, and exposes those complaining to the potential wrath of the state. It would be interesting to see what happens next, especially as this letter calls for democracy in China - and if minds are cast back to 1989 we all remember how the state reacted to pleas then. However, that was a long time ago, and this letter will be a test to see how far the state has opened up and changed since that time.
