BR1 Schools Use Students for
Profit-making

On July 5, 2011, a Shenzhen local newspaper published
a report calling public attention to the fact that some college and graduate
students have become tools for making a profit. The article gives a few
examples: graduate students call their advisor “boss" and spend a lot of time as
cheap labor working on their advisor’s research and projects; in Xi’an, a music
college forces poor female students to dance with bankers; the Nanjing Normal
University forces female students to dance with government officials. Quite
often, the college and university’s administrators use not issuing a diploma to
force students into submission.

A Shenzhen Security Services Company
pays a monthly stipend of 1,600 yuan to each student intern, who in the end only
receives 600 yuan; the Guangxi Institute of Technology, where the students are
from, takes the rest. By listing these non-isolated cases, the article concludes
that the relationship between the school and student has degenerated into a
commercial relationship.

BR2 Swedish Student Expelled
for Attempting to Organize a Public Rally

On July 9, Chinese authorities deported a Swedish
student Sven Englund, who was studying at Fudan University in Shanghai, for
attempting to organize a public rally on July 1, 2011, the 90th birthday of the
Chinese Communist Party. On his microblogging page, Englund invited Chinese
president Hu Jintao to come to the Bund to attend a really that called for
freedom. Before the deportation, Fudan University had invited him for a “coffee
talk." Shanghai’s police also followed, monitored, and interrogated him. The
authorities charged him with “involvement in jeopardizing social management."
The 24-year-old student is now back in Sweden.
