Chinese Dissident Hu Jia Complained about 18th Party Congress

Environmental and AIDS activist Hu Jia who had been sentenced to 3.5 years imprisonment and now under house arrest complained about the 18th National Congress of the Chinese Communist Party in Twitter on November 13. Tweet translated here[zh]:

I have been forced to leave Beijing for 20 days because of the stability control during the 18th Congress. Before I left, I asked my neighbors to take care of my fishes. Never expect that they were stopped. Even after I have left, the security police officers are still guarding the apartment and they interrogate everyone who enters. This is too ridiculous. That's how they make use of the dark-hole like stability maintenance fee and the 1,400,000 security police?
