Comrade Liu Hulan (1932-1947) was an activist in her native village of Yunzhouxi, Shanxi Province. She became a member of the Communist Party of China in 1946.
As an organizer, she had set up a chapter of the Women’s Federation, and in her capacity as secretary of that chapter, she had been actively involved in moblizing her fellow villagers to support the CCP in the civil war. When Nationalist troops surrounded the village in 1947 and attempted to cart off the confiscated grain reserves from the public granary, she led the villagers in resistance. She was executed.
If one throws a stone, the action constitutes a crime.
If one thousand stones are thrown, it becomes a political action.
If you burn a car, the action constitutes a crime.
If you burn hundreds of cars, it becomes a political action.
Protest is when I say that something does not sit well with me.
Opposition is when I do something to make sure that what I do not like does not happen again.
