Wow, good for them! Chinese people standing up for what is right---I guess not all the Chinese are hopelessly brainwashed and indoctrinated.

I hope no great harm comes to these brave people--I hope the communist government doesn't butcher them and their loved ones like they usually do.

"I would applaud them for demanding truthful, accurate and unbiased information but I found myself clicking back and forth between Fox News and MSNBC and finding I don't know the meaning of that myself."

"Freedom.
I hope some day WE get it (back)."

"we should start one here and replace the mainstream media with one that hasn't picked sides."

"Democracy" is what's hyped by the CIA to come in and set up their puppets.
