I still believe China did the right thing of cracking down the 64 movement. Without it there would be no 20 years fast growing. No standing as the second biggest economy in the world.
Look what happened in Ukraine after the orange revolution? In Egypt after the Arabic spring? And Thailand now.
Sorry, China needs economy more than so called democracy!
Democracy doesn't give you bread and butter. Democracy only brings you chaos in developing countries! Not a single developing country can survive the "democracy", sorry!
