Migrants in Six Chinese Cities Can Now Apply for Passports Locally
According to an announcement posted to the official website of China's Public Security Bureau, migrant workers in six major Chinese cities -- Beijing, Shanghai, Tianjin, Chongqing, Shenzhen and Guangzhou -- will be permitted to apply locally for passports after September 1. In the past, under China's "hukou", or household registration, system, migrants wanting to travel outside China have had to return to their local area of registration to apply for passports. However, migrants will still have to provide a number of documents to apply for passports locally, including their "hukou", their temporary residency permits (暂住证/居住证), and proof that they have held employment in the city of application for at least one year. National Post: Reporter Says Xinhua Being Used to Monitor Critics in Canada
"Mark Bourrie had just finished listening to the Dalai Lama speak at the Ottawa Civic Centre with his wife and daughter when he says his cellphone rang: It was his boss — the Ottawa bureau chief for the Chinese state-run news agency, Xinhua — asking Mr. Bourrie to take notes at the spiritual leader’s press conference and pin down what happened at the Dalai Lama’s private meeting with Prime Minister Stephen Harper earlier that April day. On its face, the request was not an odd one. Mr. Bourrie, an award-winning Canadian journalist and author, had for two years worked as a full-time freelancer for the news agency and had covered the Dalai Lama’s speech at a convention the day before. But by this point a series of what he called “odd” requests by bureau chief Dacheng Zhang had Mr. Bourrie concerned the news agency was gathering intelligence on Chinese dissidents and sending information back to Beijing. . ."

People's Daily Online said that a weak economy and new property regulations have depressed the labor market, driving many migrants to return to the countryside.

Global Times: youth should be kept away from political events like Shifang
In an editorial today, the Chinese-language Global Times, a spin-off of China's official People's Daily, writes that it is wrong and worrisome to see young teens participating in political actions that seen recently in Sichuan, where thousands of residents of Shifang city turned out to protests the building of a molybdenum-cooper plant. The paper wrote: "Middle school students are not yet adults and their ideas are not yet fully mature. They are very emotional and highly sensitive . . . [They] can be easily swayed by adults, either toward a correct social mentality or in the wrong direction." "In every normal household," the paper continued, "the correct duty of middle school students is to study, and not to be encouraged to join events of a political nature." To this, journalist and CMP fellow Xiao Shu (笑蜀) responded: "For this purpose, all Party organizations must exit our schools, and no political events should be allowed. What does [GT editor] Hu Xijin think about this?" …
