    China arrests filmmaker Deng Chuanbin because of Tweet

    Chinese authorities have reportedly detained documentary filmmaker Deng Chuanbin after he tweeted an image of a liquor bottle labelled “64” – a reference to the date of the Tiananmen Square Massacre which occurred on June 4, 1989.

    Sichuan police arrested Deng at his home in Yibin last Friday, according to the NGO coalition, Chinese Human Rights Defenders (CHRD). The arrest came hours after he posted a Twitter photo of a clear spirit with a label that read “ba jiu,” a near homophone of “89,” above an illustration of the iconic “tank man” – an unidentified man who stood in front of a row of tanks on June 5, 1989, the morning after the crackdown.

    Deng and family.



    Image that got him arrested.
    That fucking tank man. I remember people saying tank man "threw his life away for nothing. So what? His sacrifice won't make a difference."

    And here we are in 2019 and tank man is growing stronger every day.

    Do you think it's right for the Chinese government to arrest a man over an image?

    You guys are really pushing the propaganda.
    I hate how people just accept whatever is being thrown at them, they don't even notice that every day we suddenly have a new thread coming up.

    Hubcap starting another China thread ... this is *my* surprised face. If people actually wanted to discuss things, I would expect to see more than the same one trick pony doing yet another post and run thread. I can't say that I have. That leaves me to wonder if this is another strange "I'm the guy who starts posts" obsession like Tennisace and China is just what he chums the waters with.

    China is the most populated country on earth and the second largest economy ofc people are making threads about it.
    Your problem is that you’re more concerned about being precisely, factually, and semantically correct than about being morally right.

    On average we have a thread bashing China every four days over the last 5 months.
    Half of them come from Hubcap.

    Ian Goodrum is a good journalist, you should read his segment on the "social score".

    So you and your personal attacks can just fuck off.

    Chinese government is made up of thin skinned dictator trash. The sooner the citizens revolt the better.

    Yeah any place with re-education camps and social credit scores is a great place to live.

    "Ian Goodrum is a writer and digital editor for China Daily in Beijing, China" Legit AF.

    I read your guy's post, and he hand waves a lot of things as normal that I consider pretty contrary to basic human rights. The Surveillance State is far more problematic than just the social score, and the original post is a prime example. More importantly, you failed to address the issue put forth by the original post: Is it right for a government to arrest someone because they posted a picture in remembrance of major atrocity? You seem to think it's okay for them to do that. I'm interested in hearing why. If you want people to see your point of you, you need to express it and not just call people propagandists. Did they not arrest him? If so, where's your evidence contradicting HKFP's? If you agree that they did do it, why do you believe it is okay? You can find my opinions below.

    Governments are just rules for living together as a society, combined with the ability to enforce those rules. Without the ability to openly and freely question those rules, you move from a collection of people living in an agreed upon arrangement into a state of coercion. No system is perfect, and while in a democracy there will still be times where you are forced to follow rules you don't agree with, the system is designed to allow you the power to potentially change those rules. That is only possible, however, if people are allowed to freely communicate and question their government and its practices.

    The problem is, if you get dinged social points and punished for saying otherwise, how is it possible to believe such claims from anyone living under that system?

    No, just to white nationalists like you.
    And you end up dying due to a lack of medicine and food anyway, so I don't really give a fuck.
