Anastasia Lin, a 25-year-old Torontonian, said that several days after her May 16 victory in Vancouver, she starting receiving harrowing text messages from her father, explaining he had been visited by security forces and telling her she would lose his support, if she continued speaking out. “He said that the security services threatened him with turning my family into something from the Cultural Revolution,” she said, alluding to the era when the Communists would encourage family members to denounce each other.
