While majority of Chinese
people, especially the left leaning intellectuals and workers,
sympathize with America's 99%, China's right-wing elites, "democracy activists" and "freedom fighters" stand by the 1% rich and powerful to slam
and mock the OWS movement.
Chen Zhiwu (陈志武), a Chinese born American working as tenured
professor of financial economics at Yale University School
of Management, laughed at the protesters and said they will
eventually shoot their own foot by going against Wall Street,
because it is Wall Street's capital that keeps Americans
An extreme-right Chinese
magazine, that was the only media President Obama wished
to visit when he was in China last year, published an article
written by a man called Yuan Xiaoming (袁晓明) - self-identified as a senior financial advisor
at an U.S. firm (旅美金融高级咨询顾问) - denouncing the protesters as a bunch of losers
who just hate the rich people and saying they stay in the
park only for the sake of getting free meals.
While on the other hand, groups of
elderly Chinese workers gathered at King Zhou Square in Luoyang, ancient capital city of 13
dynasties, including the Han and Tang (4 major Chinese
dynasties since the unification of China by the First Emperor
Qin 2200 years ago, namely Han, Tang, Song and Ming), in Henan Province, demonstrating their solidarity with the 99%
of working class people in the Untied Stares of America.
One demonstrator held high a sign that
has an image of Anglo Jacob financial empire in the middle
with the Chinese notes at the top left read "stop
their monopoly practice!", while the phrase on the
right signifies "you are here, open your eyes to take
a look", and the one down the bottom says "poorer
people will be poorer and riches will be richer."
This Chinese grandpa raised another sign written on a piece
"It is immoral to make profit on other people's misery!"
Another message: "We belong to the 99% who can remain
silent no more!!"
The gathering site with PRC's founding father Mao Zedong's
portrait on a rock in the centre and a long banner that proclaims
"Firmly support American people's great OccupyWallStreet".
