Hu Yaobang's youngest son, Hu Dehua, praised how Hu Yoabang abolished the Communist class status that had kept the Chinese in fear for generations. Hu Dehua also condemned the CCP cover up of the June 4 incident. The following is our report. On the 25th anniversary of Hu Yaobang's death, Hu Yaobang's youngest son Hu Dehua went to Jiangxi to pay tribute to Hu along with other princelings, including former party secretary of Jiangxi, Wan Shaofeng's granddaughter Chen Bihong. Hu Yaobang's death triggered the 1989 pro-democracy movement. The regime has since downplayed Hu Yaobang. His name was censored on the Internet, and his burial site has been 'quiet'. Hu Dehua told South China Morning Post, "In the History of the Chinese Communist Party, he was not listed as if he had never existed." Hu Dehua believed that his father was not sorry for the loss of the supreme power, but regretted that reforms were abandoned. He had hoped to bring balance of powers for the government. Hu Dehua said, "Hu Yaobang could have been another national hero after Sun Yat-sen, but unfortunately, was removed." Among the many heritages from Hu Yaobang, Hu Dehua was most proud of his father's advocacy of democracy and the rule of law. He was also proud of his opposition to the repressive rule, the political movement to rehabilitate the victims, and the abolition of the "Black Five". This is a discrimination against the so-called political enemies, which allowed the Chinese people to free from fear since the ruling of the CCP. Hu Yaobang abolished the class status category in the personal document. Hu Dehua believed that in the era of Hu Yaobang, termination of the status quo of an individual in politics, i.e., landlords, rich farmers, anti-revolutionists, bad-influencers and capitalists, is equivalent to President Abraham Lincoln abolishing slavery. Hu Dehua told Ming Pao that it is lack of respect for the victims who died during the June 4 massacre by covering up the truth. He questioned the CCP, "What crimes had the students committed?" and "the lack of respect to the dead." He demanded an explanation. Zha Jianguo, Beijing dissident: "He was removed from the party's general secretary post because he was being weak in opposing the bourgeois liberalization. That was very wrong and the intellectuals and the general public were unhappy about the charge." Beijing dissident Zha Jianguo was warned not to participate the memorial of Hu Yaobang. Zha Jianguo indicates that the1989 student movement was initiated in support of Hu Yaobang for the injustice he received. It later evolved into a democratic movement against the corrupt officials. However, the regime classified the legitimate mass activities as unrest, which further inspired greater dissatisfaction by the people and subsequently the vigorous democracy movement took place. Zha Jianguo: "Over 200,000 Field Army personnel were sent to crackdown on the entirely peaceful students demonstrations with violent repression and created the bloody massacre." Recently, Beijing University of Science and Technology Professor Zhao Xiao published series of articles on-line to commemorating Hu Yaobang. One of them mentioned, Hu Yaobang was "the first top CCP leader who wore a suit." In a post on April 15, Zhao Xiao wrote, "Some people have died but actually live on; others live but have already died. Some people live in fear and some died of honor. There are people saying: "When I die, why care about the disasters!" The Bible says: "Man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment! That is righteous." Liu Yinquan, former professor of History: "Had Mr. Hu Yaobang's ideal been followed...
