Video Accuses Joshua Wong, Sunflower Movement, Chinese Rights Activists of Being Foreign Agents

Shared by the Supreme People’s Court and the Communist Youth League, a video accuses pro-democracy activists of being in the pay of foreign agents and trying to spark a 'color revolution' in China 

The Chinese Supreme People’s Court yesterday released a video on its official weibo micro blogging site calling for a nationwide alert against a foreign-backed “color revolution” that seeks to undermine state stability in China. 

Using a collage of images of devastation, dead bodies and refugees in Iraq and Syria, the video, which was also circulated by the ultranationalist Chinese Communist Youth League, argues that the former U.S.S.R., Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, Egypt, Syria and Libya all serve as “painful lessons” to the Chinese. “Do you want a stable China to turn into this?” it asks.
