From Reuters

Dissident Fang Lizhi, who has taken shelter in the U.S. Embassy since the bloody crushing of pro-democracy protests in early June, has been stripped of his posts in a Chinese research society, official reports said Friday.

The China Natural Dialectics Research Society took the action against Fang, an astrophysicist, because of his alleged “counterrevolutionary” crimes.

Fang had served as an executive vice chairman and member of the society, the People’s Daily said.
