So if the working class organizes a general strike to defend the iron
rice bowl and Human Rights Watch endorses it, you'll take the side of
the government if it decides to smash the strike? I wouldn't be so

Chinese government, unlike the forces opposed to Milosevic, are after
all the ones who are driving the privatization process forward.
