Secure Freedom Radio: With Lily Tang Williams


LILY TANG WILLIAMS, Chinese Dissident, Lawyer and Law Assistant Professor, former Candidate, Colorado State House and Senate, @Lily4Liberty

Lily Tang Williams, born two years before the Chinese Cultural Revolution, grew up believing that Chairman Mao Zedong was God. What happened to make her flee China in search of a better life? 

Williams delves into the Great Proletariat Cultural Revolution, the Black blocks, the Red Guards, and the “Reactionary” classes

Williams: If you don’t institute identity politics, you can’t have a cultural revolution – 1/3 of traditional Chinese relics were destroyed during the Cultural Revolution in China
