17.7.4. Chai Ling (柴玲)

She was cute and energetic! :-)


People’s Daily,
Full of nonsense
Lying to the people,
Where’s your conscience?
You may think you’re safe,
But your time will come.

Chai has some "dirt" on her as mentioned at: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chai_Ling#Controversies

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gRAmL1D8R-4 (GitHub reupload) Chai Ling People’s Daily speech in Tiananmen Square protests (柴玲—六四学运—国民日报,胡说八道!). Ripped from The BBC miniseries Can’t Get You Out of My Head directed by Alam Curtis (2021) It is also, and perhaps more importantly also shown at The Gate of Heavenly Peace (1995, 天安门纪录片) at around 1:11:40. TODO find exact date. Ordering of the documentary suggests some time after May 10th.

Figure 212. Still from the above video with captions. We see that she was either at the headquarters of the People’s Daily (人民日报, CCP media), or in some other office of the organization. TODO confirm exact location.
