The people who want to form a social sector simply followed exactly as prescribed in the Constitution to form the co-ops, to form the consumer right protection campaigns, to form the environmental understanding and awareness campaigns… In a sense, they are calling themselves social innovators. They are not necessarily “the civil society” for the same reason that PRC activists in Beijing don’t call themselves “the civil society.” Social innovation, that’s fine. Cooperativism, that’s fine. It’s fine as per the Constitution.
