A Van with Pro-Democracy Mission
Pro-Democracy and Pro-Justice Van Founder wants to revive the anti-Communist Chinese Immigrants in Australia.
Sydney. September. A hot, dry and humid afternoon. A black van is slowly moving between the tightly parked cars near the busy mall.
A van covered with slogans in Chinese and English stands out. “Patriot must be anti-CCP, CCP can not be patriotic”, reads one. To love China does not equal to love CCP, states the other one.
Suddenly, a white car drives up to the van. A middle-aged Chinese man is visibly agitated. “Where are you from?”, he shouts at the driver of the van. He cannot see his face as the van’s window are intensively tinted. Without asking a Chinese man takes out his phone trying to take photos. He is not hiding his hostility to the van’s driver who had been followed by such Chinese Communist agents nearly 24 hours the day before. The driver does not answer any questions and avoids any contact with the car of the hostile Chinese.
“Our van has a full range of high-definition recorders, so we filmed this ugly spy”, he would later reveal on his website. The driver described an incident on the Australian intelligence’s ASIO public website.
Mr Elvin, who drove the black van, is also a founder and director of DForce, in which D stands for democracy, an organisation for the promotion of the democracy for China. Elvin is his pseudonym. “I adhere my principle of fighting anonymously all the time, and I will never expose myself,” he stated on his website.
As many of the Chinese immigrants around the world, he understands the threat of the Chinese Communist Party to the democratic world better than any Westerners. He does not save his effort to fight to expose its totalitarian and deceitful nature.

When the Hong Kong protesters opposed the extradition law, Mr Elvin’s joined their supporters in Sydney and Melbourne and along Australia’s east coast. The passers-by in the Canberra diplomatic district could notice many times his pro-democracy van parked opposite the Chinese Embassy. One photo from the Canberra, shows Australian Federal policeman standing at the van as if they would guard it. From March 2019 when he had first drove onto the streets of Sydney to January 15, he had driven 15,000 km in Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, Brisbane and many small towns in the half of Australia.
"Chinese Communist Party transformed from a quiet underground party in the past, to an overt and aggressive operation aimed to subvert Australian society", Mr Elvin observes in the interview with The Owner. He calls the CCP “the world's largest tumour”. Throughout the years, China’s Communist authorities and its partners in Australia have been creating its perception of the Communist regime in the minds of Australians. China, a typical world country with some cultural differences, leapt to the group of the most developed and sophisticated nations, and is interested in its prosperity and the growth of the global economy, is a popular view that Beijing tried to imprint in the Westerners. The regime almost succeeded.
Mr Elvin, who immigrated to Australia with the Investment Visa, knows the secret of the affluent Chinese who seem to have unlimited finances. “There is too much black money from China which will affect Australia’s government policies”, he states. Mr Elvin knows that the backbone and the heart of the Chinese system is widespread, systemic corruption. Unlike in the democracies where corruption is a crime, in China, corruption has been a parallel economic system. Chinese Communists, including so-called diplomats, are convinced that everything has a price in the West.
Some of the most knowledgable and bravest Australian specialists on Communist China warned that the influence of the Chinese Communist Party on Australia’s society has been unprecedented in recent years. In February Australian Federal Police informed that it launched special investigations to the owners of the luxurious real estates around the country that can have links to the foreign governments. After Canberra increased its vigilance against the illegal activities of the foreign governments, primarily Communist China, the support for Mr Elvin should be an enthusiastic and generous one.

Unfortunately, Chinese immigrants did not understand the importance of this mission. Why? One of the answers can be that many Chinese immigrants in Australia have never cut off their financial links with the Communist regime. “They will never give up their profits.” Mr Elvin is convinced that these Chinese immigrants will defend Communist Beijing regime to preserve the stability of the society and the safety of their properties.
“This situation is different to the Soviet immigrants who came to the West without anything”, observes a former FBI analysts Dr Joseph Hannemahn, who was involved in the management of the immigration from the Soviet Union in the late 1980s. “The US government vetted refugees before it granted them permission to stay in the country”.
Mr Elvin might have parked his van, but he did not rest his plans for organising of the pro-democracy and pro-justice Chinese immigrants. “The only goal to run the project is to gather around the dissidents and speak for the anti-communist activists.”
