PrintEmail Article Tools < prev Page 2 of 2 Though the student said she realized the dangers of participating in the rally, she said she felt strongly about being involved.


"I think this is one of the turning points of Chinese history, and I want to be part of it," she said, emphasizing that she does not support Tibetan independence.


The student said there have also been consequences for her actions in China.


"I know that I am on the Chinese government blacklist because of this," she said, explaining that she had been informed of this by sources she declined to name. "It just means I can never go back to China if I care about my security. If I go back I might end up in jail forever."


But Li dismissed the student's concerns about not being allowed back into China.


"People talk about that all the time and no matter," he said.


The student's parents have also been targeted. Their contact information was posted on several popular Chinese-language Internet forums. Some Internet sources said their home was attacked, though the student said she has been unable to confirm this with her parents, who declined to discuss the issue when she contacted them via e-mail.


At Duke, the leaders of several student organizations-including College Republicans, the Duke Conservative Union, Duke Democrats, Students for Academic Freedom, Duke Human Rights Coalition, Duke Students for an Ethical Duke and the Duke-Israel Public Affairs Committee-have come together to condemn the threats against the Chinese student, according to a statement. They have blamed the threats on DCSSA and called for an investigation of the group and a revocation of its student group status.


"[DCSSA] on their official Web site put up her... information for no other reason than to make sure that there would be retributive action in China," said junior Daniel Cordero, vice president of College Republicans and organizer of the coalition to condemn intimidation tactics.


Li said he would like to discuss the issue with the organizations calling to disband DCSSA and said he hoped the threats toward the student would stop.

If that point about being on China's blacklist is true, man that is freaky.


And seriously, give the Chronicle a break fellas. I distinctly remember having a feeling while reading their original article that they were taking extra meausures not to choose sides. (Continued…)

The Chronicle sucks. In my experience with them (unrelated to this current topic), they have found ways to twist people's words to create stories. When they don't have stories, they make them. (Continued…)

Does Zachery speak Chinese? Besides that poor girl's own words about the threats and some blurry description, I couldn't find what was really said in the emails and the online forums. (Continued…)

That girl must be laughing at this report now. This is exactly what she wants: more publicity for herself and more slander to her nation.


You guys show check out her interview with CTV, where she explicitly insults the Chinese people and supports Tibetan Independence. (Continued…)

A tip for Chinese : don't try and turn this story around and blame it on the girl lest you further damage the common perception of the Chinese community. (Continued…)

I am not overlooking, or encouraging personal threats to this girl. I think it is wrong, too.


But still, I would like to point out the Chronicle has shown a fair amout of bias and sinophobia recently. (Continued…)

Lack of Compassion and Support Upsetting

I think it's really disheartening when a fellow student gets personally attacked and her family are victims of deliberate character assassination by a Duke Approved Student Organization. (Continued…)

To all those attacking the girl and The Chronicle:


How would you like it if someone started handing out your personal information and sent threats to you and your family? I certainly think it would be rather unnerving, to say the least. (Continued…)

Being blacklisted from China would prompt the US to grant her a visa and allow her to remain in the country. This may or may not be her ulterior motive. (Continued…)

As a Chinese student, I was extremely angry after seeing her show during the interview with CTV. She have no right to right to represent "most Chinese"'s idea, and she does not know most Chinese's idea. (Continued…)
