Beijing University Professor Believes He is not Being Allowed to Teach Because of His Criticism of Communist Party Department (story in Chinese)

October 13, 2004

The Epoch Times reported on October 9 that Jiao Guobiao, an associate professor in the Department of Journalism at Beijing University, has not been given any classes to teach this semester. According to the report, Jiao said he was notified of this on September 2, five days before classes were supposed to begin. Jiao was not given any reason, but he believes it was a result of his having published an article entitled "Repudiating the Central Propaganda Department," in which he criticized the way the Communist Party's Central Propaganda Department exercises control over the media and infringes on freedom of the press and freedom of speech.
