A leading mainland Chinese dissident sent into exile last year;
Wei Jingsheng, Thursday urged the United States to take a tougher
line with Beijing following its renewed crack down on dissent.
The United States could restrict mainland Chinese imports or
halt all "questionable" technology transfers, if
it really wanted to punish the Chinese regime, Wei wrote in
the New York Times.

he argued, the Communist Party's main objective is still to

but also trade unions, peasants' associations, and unapproved
religious gathering" he said. He also criticized U.S. foreign
policy for handing the Communist Party "diplomatic victories"
notably an official visit from U.S. President Bill Clinton in
June and July. Mainland Chinese leaders have merely stepped
up their crackdown on opponents --- arresting 70 people this

the country launches a hunger strike in protest at heavy sentences
handed down to three pro-democracy campaigners.
Mainland China earlier this week handed down heavy jail sentences
to three prominent dissidents in a crackdown on the activities
of the fledgling opposition China Democracy Party. They were
accused of trying to subvert the state.
How to induct mainland China to step up "democratic reformation"
is free countries' duty. Respect human rights is the first issues
for preventing from "communist's chaos".
