“The Fifth Modernization” is an essay by human rights activist Wei Jingsheng , originally begun as a signed wall poster placed on the Democracy Wall in Beijing on December 5, 1978. [1]

Summary[ edit ]

The poster called on the Communist Party of China to add democracy to the list of Four Modernizations which includes industry, agriculture, science and technology and national defense. [2] It openly stated democracy as an additional modernization which needs to be taken if China truly wants to modernize itself. The five Modernizations would include:

  • Democracy
  • Agriculture
  • Industry
  • National Defense
  • Science and Technology
