Wang Dan writes on 7 May 2010:

The Beijing University Preparatory Committee issued a statement about a public opinion poll conducted at all 1476 dormitories on campus on 6 May.  The results indicated that 67.2% students were in favour of continuing strike action, 24% preferred to resume classes, and 8.8% abstained.  It was therefore decided that strike would commence again from 7 May.

The Committee also put forward five demands as conditions for resuming classes:

  1. The People’s Daily would openly apologise for the wrong information it published in the 26 April editorial;
  2. The legal status of the independent student union would be acknowledged;
  3. The State Council would immediately release survey statistics on corrupt officials and would set up an anti-corruption group to review the cases and to start prosecuting corrupt officials;
  4. The Chief Editor of the World Economic Herald Qin Benli would be immediately reinstated; and
  5. The 10 regulations governing demonstrations in Beijing Municipality would be reviewed.
