Wu Yuren announced that he has received his passport back and there are no charges. He is a free man! Thank you to all supporters over the past 22 months or so – much appreciated by Wu and his family and friends.

I thought I would share this personal and touching account of TENG Biao’s experience with being beaten and harassed in a local police station in Beijing. Brings to mind Wu’s case, as there are similarities in the way both men were handled, but if they let up on TENG because of his credentials, then whyContinue reading “HR Lawyer TENG Biao: “A Hole To Bury You” … or not.”
A very dear friend of mine used to come to Beijing every once a month as he was a flight attendant with SAS Business Class. We met around a photography connection, and almost without fail for close to 4 years he would visit us, sometimes just Hannah and I, sometimes us three as a family,Continue reading “Wu Yuren images from a while ago – Beijing, China”
As this story has been purposely removed from most Chinese news outlets, and has stopped being reported in the international press, I give you the skinny, followed by the translation of the letter submitted by his parents.

Here is a link about the blind human rights lawyer who has disappeared, after spending 4 years in prison.

As we wait for the re-opening of the trial, thought it would be interesting to share the quintessential image that came from the time last spring when Dawu and others banded together to ‘fight’ the property developers and local government surrounding the 008 International Art Community and the Zhengyang Artist Community. Both areas were specificallyContinue reading “While we wait for the re-opening of Wu’s trial”
December 21, 2010 Still no word from Li Fangping and the court as to when the re-opening of the trial will take place. Hoping before Christmas, but not looking hopeful, as they are supposed to give us 3 working days notice. But, anything could come in at the last moment.
