Another mouth shutted…

Li Jianping was found guilty of incitement to subvert state power based on his articles written on the Internet and was sentenced to two years in prison. (to know more here)

Li was an Internet essayist who recently run a medical supplies business. He was also founder of Independent Federation of Shanghai Universities (which participated on 1989's Democracy Movement)


With its recent development and openness to foreigner companies we sometimes forget what China still is: a Dictatorship where basic rights are not granted, and where writers still end up in jail.
