I am not surprised now that the CDJP leader says that the 1989 Chinese Student Movement is an anti capitalism reform and a pro socialist demcoracy movement. Here is a strong piece of evidence. 



Protest Finds Unlikely Father Figure

By JESSICA FIRGER

A former Chinese democracy activist who helped lead the Tiananmen Square protests is putting his work on hold at a software firm he founded in New York to devote all his time to the Occupy Wall Street protests.

More than two decades ago, Shen Tong was 20 years old, organizing the media campaign of a student democracy movement in Beijing. Mr. Shen recalls dodging bullets on June 4, 1989, when protesters in the capital city's Tiananmen Square were met with force by the Chinese military. Untold numbers of dissidents were killed.

Shen Tong has been spending his days at Occupy Wall Street.

Now, Mr. Shen, 43 years old and a successful businessman, can be found in the Financial District's Zuccotti Park, where he has become a sort of father figure for Occupy Wall Street.

Nearly every day, he holds planning meetings with the protesters in an unremarkable Broadway office. His responsibilities range widely—from mundane tasks like hunting down paperwork for the unwieldy group to lending advice to younger, self-styled revolutionaries.

"It's a lot of wise old man comments," said protester Max Bean, 29.

Mr. Shen didn't plan to devote all his time to Occupy Wall Street. On Oct. 17, he simply ventured 10 blocks from his home to Zuccotti Park and was intrigued to meet some protesters who knew of his efforts in China. "I was curious about the movement," he said. "Pretty soon, I realized it was not going away. But no good deed goes unpunished."

Mr. Shen soon found himself working a full day for Occupy Wall Street, seven days a week.

He said he turned over day-to-day control of VFinity, the software company he founded in 2004, to other managers to focus on the movement.

With his worn-out jeans, an untucked shirt, suede sneakers and tousled hair, Mr. Shen looks more like a Brooklyn hipster than a successful businessman.

But his business background makes him an unlikely leader for an anticorporate movement. And Occupy Wall Street is a far cry from Mr. Shen's work in China, where the government sought to suppress the student movement, sometimes with violence. New York's protesters camp in the open air and march freely through Manhattan.

"Last time we wanted a different China, we got shot at," said Mr. Shen. "America can still afford to do this nicely."

Awarded American citizenship 10 years ago, Mr. Shen said he voted for President Barack Obama but is disenchanted with the establishment. He said he is "dedicated but not yet committed" to Occupy Wall Street. But he said criticism that the protesters have no demands misses the mark. "Their demand is quite simple," he said. "They want fundamental change."
