WASHINGTON, March 1, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Tunisia, Egypt, now Libya, Yemen and the list goes on…

Though China is half way around the globe from the dramatic events happening in the Middle East and North Africa, China watchers are asking the same question: Will China join the wave of protests and regime change seen recently in the Arab world?

The fall of tyrannies in Egypt, Tunisia and next Libya was a surprise to the experts. Will China be the next surprise too? To answer this question, we have to look deeper and ask ourselves what we know about China and what we don't know.

Let's not be caught off guard again as happened in the Middle East.

Statesman, NGO leaders, China experts, and people's voices from mainland China will share a closer look into the factors and disturbing trends inside China, hoping to see into China's future.  Discussions will focus on the meaning the revolution in Egypt carries for the Chinese people's own struggles to liberate themselves from despotism and oppression.
