Chinese Nationalism and the ‘New Left’

By Au Loong Yu Following the heated debate on ‘the rise of China’, we are now witnessing a rise of Chinese nationalism. While old Chinese nationalism between 1840-1949 was a legitimate response to foreign aggression and popular aspirations for national independence, today it is entirely different. Au Loong Yu discusses the debates.


若干年後,成都市的“二十四城”將會是中產者的居所,相信很少人會記起該處其實是一間國營軍工廠 ------ 420廠的地皮。現時,香港年輕一輩也許不曉得黃埔花園、太古城都曾經是黃埔船塢、太古船塢所在地。今時今日,這些工人去了哪裡?太古船塢一度是香港工運的發源地,工人曾經反抗不公平的對待而罷工,亦是香港華人機器總工會(最早的工會)的誕生地。

China's Charter 08

Translated from the Chinese by Perry Link The document below, signed by more than two thousand Chinese citizens, was conceived and written in conscious admiration of the founding of Charter 77 in Czechoslovakia, where, in January 1977, more than two hundred Czech and Slovak intellectuals formed a loose, informal, and open association of people...united by the will to strive individually and collectively for respect for human and civil rights in our country and throughout the world.
