Another sad day for China


This Sunday, the famous artist Ai Weiwei was taken away by the police at Beijing Airport. His studio was searched, computers removed and also eight people of his staff were taken to the police station in northern Beijing. During the afternoon, all messenges on Chinas microblog Sina Weibo related to the artist were removed.

Lets hope he will be released soon, my stomach feeling tells me however that he wont be free in the close future.
