Wang Min

..., born in 1947, worked as a secondary school teacher in in the southern Chinese city of Guangzhou. In 1968 he was accused of "counter-revolutionary propaganda" because he had criticized the military training, and sentenced to eight years of "re-education". Wang lost his job  and was put under "surveillance by the masses".

During the "Beijing Spring" in 1979, he became one of the editors of the independent journal "Weilai" (Future) in Guangzhou. In the early 80s he left China to study in the US, where he founded - together with other Chinese students - a magazine called "China Spring" (Zhongguo zhi Chun), and he was took up leading positions in various political movements in exile. Wang Min now lives in in Las Vegas, Nevada.
