china censors ai weiwei

renowned chinese artist ai weiwei's activism has finally provoked the chinese
authorities to act against him. his studio is being staked out by plain clothes police
and last month the artist's popular blog on sina.com was deleted, as well as his
commentaries on china's version of twitter.

ai weiwei has been running a campaign documenting the death of school children
in the sichuan earthquake of may 2008, alleging that the number of fatalities was due
to local officials siphoning money from school building costs.

the artist has launched another blog (blog.aiweiwei.com), and will republish his
investigations into the sichuan disaster on this. 'I don’t know how long it will last
before it is blocked,' he said, 'but the server is in the US, so the content will remain.'
no-one from sina.com would comment on the issue of the deletion of ai weiwei’s blog.
