Read this brilliant article on a proud Chinese woman sticking it to the Chinese government.


The bearded face of the detained Chinese artist Ai Weiwei is spray-painted on a nondescript gray wall overlooking the steep lanes of Hong Kong's nightlife capital, Lan Kwai Fong.


I heard an interview with Tangerine (the graffiti artist), where she stated,




"He's one of the most prominent contemporary artists in the world right now," she explains. "And if he can be arrested, then there's no identity we can hide behind: Being a Hong Kong citizen doesn't help anymore; being rich or social status doesn't help. There's no shield any more against this very naked power that's trying to engulf us."


She faces 10 years prison for vandalism, and currently has a crack squad of officers, who normally investigate murder and other serious crimes, trying to track her down.

I think it's important to bring this story to everyone's attention.
