Cina, la rivoluzione dei Conigli

    I conigli, dopo avere sofferto le angherie delle tigri, si ribellano. Da "La fattoria degli animali" di George Orwell abbiamo imparato come la denuncia politica, in quel caso del regime sovietico, possa assumere le sembianze di maiali e pecore. Pochi giorni fa questo video, girato sui social network locali prima di essere cancellato, ha raccontato la stessa filastrocca sulla Cina.

    Il video fa riferimento a tanti scandali passati, da quello dei bambini intossicati dal latte alla melamina, alle demolizioni illegali, alla repressione delle proteste. Iniziative del genere abbondano sulla Rete qui (la gente viene arrestata per molto meno). Stavolta però c'è una non tanto celata incitazione alla sovversione (il capo d'accusa per cui è stato condannato a 11 anni di carcere il dissidente Liu Xiao Bo, poi premio nobel per la Pace 2010).

Il finale è rivoluzionario, tanto più per questo 2011 che è l'anno del Coniglio secondo il calendario cinese: la gente comune (i conigli) uccide gli oppressori (le tigri), chiaramente il Partito comunista cinese.
