强国论坛 translate Strong Nation Forum ,on http://www.people.com.cn,the official website of People’s Daily,is one of the extreme nationalistic forum in mainland China.On 20-June morning,Hu jin-tao went on-line for 15 minutes,resulting in tens of thousands of netizens,all log-in onto that web page and try to have a chat with Hu,”Brother No1″,an affectionate nick name given to Hu by young bloggers(in their 20 or early 30),they themself are nick-named “Angry Youths”
Most of the blogs written by these “Angry Youths” are pro-government,such as anti CNN,anti Dalai Lama,kill Sharon Stone,stuff like that.That was the main reason “Brother No1″ went on-line there because that is his home turf,100% no funny or embarrassing comments.
On 28-June,the students riot in Wen An ,has changed the color of “Angry Youth” (on both people.com.cn and xinhua.cn) once and for all.For the first time in the short history of Chinese internet,95% of comments posted on Tianya.cn,sina.com.cn,xinhua.cn and people.com.cn were supporting the students,calling those local officials “Liers”,calling for the immediate resignation of local officials.Some even called for the overthrow of THE mighty CCP,and these calls come from XINHUA.CN and PEOPLE.COM,from the CCP’s headquarters!
The show of power by dissident netizens,by putting massive amounts of posts(in tens of thousands) onto major chinese bbs,went from 28-June to 2-July,then slowly calmed down.On Tianya.cn,some bloggers commented that this is:The Cyber War that will be remembered for long time.
Bellow are some of the comments left on bbs.people.com.cn
2. 瓮安大火比火炬更激动人心 ( wanmin 2008-06-29 18:17:16 )
The big fire at Wen An makes people’s heart more excited than olympic torch
福娃里面有个代表火的，有人说火炬被抢已近应了，我看这次鬼州瓮安警民联谊开篝火晚会才算是应了。 ( 读资本论治平天下 2008-06-29 18:02:38 )
One of the Olympic dolls represents fire,someone said the attack of the torch meant something,to me,this jamboree bonfire by the friendly police and all their friends really means something.
我最欣赏的是瓮安消防队的同志们,车开不进去,就不勉强.哈哈. ( 曾是知青④ 2008-06-29 17:49:38 )
I particularly admire those comrades from WenAn fire department,couldn’t get the fire engine any closer,relax,not here to force anything.HAHA.
椐谣传:事发后,瓮安竟然看不见穿制服的工按.”都转入地下工作了? ( 重庆越南 2008-06-29 17:40:57 )
瓮安那么多人，却见火不救，袖手旁观。 ( 绑架真理 2008-06-29 17:36:55 )
According to rumors:During the riot,those people in uniform are nowhere to be seen,are they all gone underground?
So many people at WenAn,not only refuse to put out the fire,just stood there and watch,with hands in pocket.
国内发生的事要到国外网站去看！悲哀啊！ ( 贵州乡民 2008-06-29 17:33:12 )
神圣圣火在贵州瓮安热烈燃烧！！ ( 北秀村的沙漠 2008-06-29 17:31:58 )
Have to go to web sites outside China to learn what is happening inside China!How sad!
Sacred fire is is burning like hell in Quizhou!
刚才听说:贵州瓮安十万民众自制圣火迎奥运，公安大楼意外着火。 ( 广州家伙 2008-06-29 17:08:34 )
Breaking news:Quizhou WenAn 100,000 people make own fire to welcome Olympic,police big building catch fire by accident.
如果瓮安的当事人（县太爷）迅速被自杀，效果也许会更好。 ( 随缘而至 2008-06-29 17:02:20 )
Supposing the person involved(county big boss) was swiftly being suicided,the end result shall be better.
从瓮安事件看出,一个人民没有选票、权力缺乏有效、意见和诉求没有管道的国家其社会混乱只是迟早的事情! ( 争自由 2008-06-29 13:49:04 )
The WenAn incident clearly shows that,a country that do not give ballot paper to its people, with no effective restriction of its power,opinions and requests have nowhere to appeal,this kind of country,its plunging into social chaos is only a matter of time.
We discussed the Weng’an reaction online, including at people.com.cn. And if you have followed that forum for a long time, you would see that many Chinese there are very critical of the CCP and government. I don’t see anything surprising or wrong with that.
The government should be criticized when it is wrong, and supported when it is right.
Reuters: China’s discontented
‘… officials have launched an onslaught of checks to stop aggrieved citizens reaching Beijing.
On Sunday, 19 days before the Games open on Aug. 8, that crackdown intensified with even tighter checks on travellers coming to the capital.
… dozens gathered near official petitions reception offices in Beijing’s south, yelling out claims of police torture, lawless land grabs, and court corruption.
Visiting state “petitions and visits” offices in provincial capitals and Beijing has for decades offered a rare channel for ordinary people to vent complaints. The roots of the system reach back to ancient times, when subjects could petition the emperor and his officials.’

Ok, Falun goners picked up a cyber war..
ali baba, you are a falun goner, dont try to deny that.
If the Olympic can push the government allows more freedom of information and media, that maybe the greatest accomplishment by Olympic, anyway it will come sooner or later.
Sorry, I stopped reading when I saw “博讯”.
