Beijing Blames Foreigners for Its Fears of Unrest China Digital Times (CDT)
Ai Weiwei and others are still detained. Even in Hong Kong two were arrested for spreading Ai Weiwei graffitis downtown yesterday.
CDT reports about foreign embassies under pressure, culture forums, school programs and more needed to be cancelled.
Some years ago, I attended a speech about Feng Shui at the Beijing China Culture Club. They told us that it is not well seen by the government to talk about that subjet. Just to give you an idea, what kind of culture programs might already be considered to threaten the harmony.
It is sad to see what is happening.
My blog statistic shows 0.8 % of my readers are from China. This is the Great Fire Wall of China. Becoming even greater.
This blog was always holding back from politics. I was a guest of this great country. And I liked it most of the time.
It is the harshest crackdown on free speech in years. And no one knows where it will end.
UPDATE: Ai Weiwei is alive, they give him his medicine, they do not torture him. His wife was allowed to see him for 15 min. (after 6 long weeks of no notice!). A little progress. I hope they let him go soon.
