Ever Heard of Ai Weiwei?
Neither had I, until recently. He's a Chinese artist who dares to speak out against the political and socio-economic conditions in China. Although his blog has been taken down (by the Chinese government), he now micro-blogs using Twitter. Here is a brief summary of Ai Weiwei in recent news.
- "The fact that we try to cover our identity that we are so afraid of what we said has empowered the authoritarian state. We need to speak in public with transparency and demand the government do the same. If we do not encourage such act and continue to live in fear, such fear would be exaggerated and we could not make any change." -Ai Weiwei
