All through 2005, the Year of the Rooster in the Chinese calendar, China was rocked by a series of rebellions: peasant revolts, religious uprising, workers strikes, petitions by democratic activists and environmental movements. As China opens up to the world, her people are becoming more aware, especially with the Internet, and they are rebelling against the tyranny of the Communist Party. More and more Chinese are getting disenchanted with the growing injustice, corrupt officials, censorship, permanent surveillance, propaganda and repression of the system. Both the educated classes and the one billion peasants who have been bypassed by Party driven industrialization are protesting loudly. The author spent the Year of the Rooster in China listerning to these rebels in their quest for freedom, he let them speak during his journey into the inner most depths of China, its villages and provinces, far removed from the usual circuit.
