Beijing Spring, 1989: Confrontation and Conflict: the Basic Documents

By Michel Oksenberg; Lawrence R. Sullivan et al. | Go to book overview
young people who have been imprisoned or are being given reeducation through labor for ideological problems. If people are no longer sentenced for ideological reasons, it will open a new political era for our country.
We should give necessary support to the educational and scientific undertakings that do not produce direct economic benefits but are decisive for the country's future. We should try our best to increase the proportion of funds for education and scientific research (especially for fundamental research) in the total output value of the national economy, and increase the pay of intellectuals (including old, middle-aged, young, and retired intellectuals), so that they do not have to lead a difficult life forever. At present, some people who were grade one professors in the 1950s have applied for the difficulty allowance. Recently, a 78-year-old grade two senior engineer committed suicide due to problems of livelihood by jumping from an apartment. This is obviously unfavorable to the modernization drive and will spoil the country's image.

It will be a great fortune to the country if the above suggestions can be accepted. Also, democracy and science, which were advocated by the leaders of the May 4th Movement seventy years ago, will thus be really developed on this great land of China, and a joyous atmosphere will be created on the fortieth anniversary of the founding of the state.
