A clever way to protest

Every so often I see currency that has anti-government writing on it. In an environment where speech is not free, and where expressing anti-government opinions is illegal, using a country’s legal tender as a means of spreading anti-government messages is clever. 

I just got this one today. The text is printed right on the bill:

On the left is written: “The Chinese Communist Party is not China. Patriotism isn’t love for the Party.”

On the right is written: “Communism is an evil spirit from the west. It sold my country’s land and harms my country’s populace. Everyone quickly wake up, quit the party and save your life.”
