Beijing coup rumors

U.S. intelligence agencies monitoring China’s Internet say that from March 14 to Wednesday bloggers circulated alarming reports of tanks entering Beijing and shots being fired in the city as part of what is said to have been a high-level political battle among party leaders – and even a possible military coup.

The Internet discussions included photos posted online of tanks and other military vehicles moving around Beijing.

The reports followed the ouster last week of senior Politburo member and Chongqing Party Secretary Bo Xilai, who was linked to corruption, but who is said to remain close to China’s increasingly nationalistic military.

Chinese microblogging sites Sina Weibo, QQ Weibo, and the bulletin board of the search engine Baidu all reported “abnormalities” in Beijing on the night of March 19.

The comments included rumors of the downfall of the Shanghai leadership faction and a possible “military coup,” along with reports of gunfire on Beijing’s Changan Street. The reports were quickly removed by Chinese censors shortly after postings and could no longer be accessed by Wednesday.

The unusual postings included reports that military vehicles were sent to control Changan Street, along with plainclothes police officers and metal barriers.

Another posting quoted internal sources as saying senior Communist Party leaders are divided over the ouster of Mr. Bo. The divide was said to pit Prime Minister Wen Jiabao and against party security forces and Minister of Public Security Zhou Yongkang.

Late Wednesday, another alarming indicator came when Beijing authorities ordered all levels of public-security and internal-security forces under Mr. Zhou to conduct nationwide study sessions, althoughMr. Zhou’s name was not on the order – a sign his future may be in doubt.

Additional references on Chinese social media included vague mention of high-level party political struggles and related police activity in Beijing.

One posting referred to a mysterious atmosphere in Beijing and a reported shooting Tuesday night. The posting was quickly censored by authorities.




anyone hear this?

  1. aha they monitoring everyone’s activities

  2. all i have heard is that there have been some openings in the chinese internet firewall since the “coup.”

  3. If this is true, the West will be jumping on the bandwagon as quickly as they can, especially given the West’s desire for paradigmatic change to the Chinese financial system.

    • i would call it the west’s ‘seeming’ desire for change to the chinese financial system. i think it’s more likely that china is merely another holding of the empire.

    • interesting and one to keep a watch one

  4. Reports have been greatly exaggerated.

  5. Sorry, this has nothing to do with Bejing, but have you heard of this March 30th Global March to Jerusalem?

    An international caravan will travel through Asia towards Jerusalem in the weeks leading up to the march.

    Massive marches will be organized in Palestine (the 1948 seizures, the West Bank and the Gaza Strip) towards Jerusalem or to the nearest point to it. Palestinian people from all factions and institutions will participate alongside international solidarity activists who are able to enter Palestine.

    Mass protests will be organised in front of Israeli embassies in the capitals of different countries.

    Mass demonstrations and protests will be organised in the main public squares in the big cities of the world, including the Arab and Muslim capitals and large cities, which can be initiated from the main mosques and churches in each city, where appropriate.

    by the way, I know you will see the pyramid 🙂

    • lol, note the absence of anyone actually elected by the palestinian people? the plo lost the elections in both the west bank and gaza.

      • Yep, but Obama’s Reverend Dr. Jeremiah Wright will be there, and I believe I read that Madea Benjamin is going too 🙂

      • i take it i have expressed my distaste for susie, erm uh i mean medea, previously … lol … i don’t trust anything she’s associated with.

        i might have mentioned before that her organization – global exchange – is involved in making “ordinances” based on “the rights of nature” which, in their conception, will be implemented when the government no longer has control.

    • Who are the international activists????

      • some of the ISM folks that i have met are incredibly brave/crazy goodhearted people. it’s a rare person that’s willing to truly put themselves on the line to protect others – people like rachel corrie.

  6. I think, and this is just my opinion or hunch, that many of the non-actors, are truly concerned people who are fed up with the satanic shit running this show, but when I hear of people like Madea, or Desmond Tutu or Jerimiah Wright, who I think is just the next Farakhan or Jesse Sr., it’s just the same actors who work with the globalists bringing us a new production.
