I reviewed the whole case last night and early this morning. Found out that some information I got is not 100% truth but an exaggerated results. Therefor I am sorry for given out the wrong information and corrected them. 1.there were protesters around the courthouse and the number was near 300. 2. Ai Weiwei was in Beijing not outside the courthouse.
On the morning of 17th. April there are more than two thousand(FALSE INFORMATION FROM TWITTER, the protester are less than 300.) netizens, coming from all over the country and Hong Kong, gathered in front of the courthouse in three netizens are on trial.
10.Feb. 2008, the 26 years old woman Yan xiaolin died in Minqing Fujian.The heart stricken mother Lin Xiuyin insisting that her daughter was killed during the gang rape forced by lots of people including the local police officers while the official answer is “heavily blood lost due to tubal rupture”. The illiterate mother ran into with the human rights activist Fan Yanqiong during the appealing who later helped her to write the appeal and posted her story online.
25th. July. 2009, Polices from Fuzhou detained nine netizens including Fan right after the post is exposed. Later some of the netizens got released, but Fan and other two netizens You Jinyou who helped her to made a video about it and Wu huayin is still under arrest charging for False Charges.
(FALSE INFORMATION FROM TWITTER, Ai Weiwei is in Beijing during the trail)
“The Chinese leading artist and vociferous social critic Ai Weiwei with 25,000 followers on Twitter is also in the crowd, trying to draw more attention from the media and thereby lower the general danger to the other protesters.”
Here is a video showing some pictures from the site. If u only saw a big blank, you probably will need to get a proxy.
“Ten thousand years* to Freedom!” “Ten thousand years to justice!” “Free three netizens!” Outside the court, protesters are shouting clear and loud.
“I’m proud to be here with all these people form everywhere in China, this may be one small step of the hard and long journey to democracy” On the street, one protester twits in Chinese under the tag of #fjwangmin.
“This is an important day for the shitizens* of China. By helping those three innocent netizens we are actually expiating the sins of being silent for more than twenty years since the Tienanmen Square massacre in 1989.” Another protester typed the above while standing outside the court.
The trail was over when I updating the post. The court changed the charge during the trail from false charge to defamation. You jinwu and Wu huayin are both being jailed for one year and Fan yanqiong for two years.
The use of the phrase “ten thousand years” in various East Asian languages originated in ancient China as an expression used to wish long life to the Emperor, and is typically translated as “long live” in English.
can refer to those people who are officially citizens but treated unjustly by their government as if they are just indentured servants or even slaves. When this meaning is used, often it is conveyed with compassion or self-mockery.
PS: Some Worlds from the video.
