Chinese Leader Backs Democracy_ Which One?

Premier Wen Jiabo of China urged communist party leaders to support a new China dedicated to ideas of progress and reform. He wants a nation with “distinctive Chinese features and reform and opening-up; we can surely build Chinese unity and a modern socialist country of prosperity, democracy, high ethical standards and harmony.” Chinese leaders continue employing words such as “democracy” while stifling free speech and imprisoning dissidents. Perhaps, it is time for leadership to implement words into action.
