"No country is strong or weak forever. When those who uphold the law are strong, the country is strong; when they are weak, the country is weak." Chinese people acknowledged the importance of governing according to the law over 2,000 years ago. Today, as part of China's comprehensive framework for law-based governance, educating people about legal issues is part of the country’s long-term mission. Beijing’s Dashilar has the most distinctive hutongs or alleys in the Chinese capital and is also the birthplace of Peking Opera. The area’s judicial office has taken a creative approach to spreading the word about the law – it uses Peking Opera performances to vividly inform residents about their rights and obligations.
