Is the Western Media Right?-VI/Not True by VOA and BBC

When the political chaos in Tunisia, Egypt, Bahrain, Yemen, and Libya began, some western propaganda, including reports on VOA and BBC began to argue that China will be the next “revolution” on 20 February 2011. Some Japanese media called as “Jasmine Revolution.”  However, nothing is occurring in China; subsequently, both VOA and BBC turned down their predictions for a “Jasmine Revolution.” A few days later, the “Organizers” of Sunday’s (27 February) so-called ‘Jasmine Rallies’ across China are now urging supporters to press for a more accountable government with a series of weekly Sunday strolls (VOA News 23 February 2011).” The anonymous organizers: the overseas Chinese dissidents and some human rights groups, posted the latest call on the Chinese language Boxun.com and other websites. According to the websites, the organizers are not necessarily seeking to overthrow the government whether is a one-party, two-party or even three-party system (same as “June Fourth Movement” in 1989), but seek the government to fight corruption, independent judiciary, and address the people’s demands.
