Free Hao Wu

Free Hao Wu

It was a surreal experience. One day Hao Wu was introduced on the Global Voices Regional Editors' listserve as the new Northeast Asia Regional Editor, the next (okay maybe a week later) he had... disappeared. News came back that he had been detained by Chinese authorities and he remains so.

Global Voices started a campaign to "Free Hao Wu" which includes a blog featuring translated posts by his sister Nina who is doing her best to get him released, a letter writing campaign and a petition drive that await your support.

As mundane as my own blogging experience can be, blogging is a dangerous activity in some parts of the world. Hao, my thoughts are with you and with all of the support that is being drummed up by Rebecca and Ethan [co-founders of GV], the GV RegEds and the GV community, I look forward to reading your posts on the GV RegEd list very soon...
