The only warm news this winter: Guo Feixiong and other Taishi villagers are released – An Ti
A Chinese activist who was detained for more than three months after helping a village protest has been released without charges.
Guo Feixiong was held in September after he assisted farmers in Taishi village in the southern province of Guangdong to try to remove their chief.
They accused the leader of embezzling public funds during a land deal.

He should be remembered by history. ” (“ÈÉ≠ÂÖÑÂíåÂÖ∂‰ªñÁª¥ÊùÉ‰∫∫Â£´ÁöÑËÉúÂà©ÔºåÂ∞±Âú®‰∫éÔºå‰ª•‰ªñÁöÑË∫´‰ΩìÁªôÂ§ßÂÆ∂ÂºÄËæü‰∫Ü‰∏ÄÈÅì“ÂêàÊ≥ïÁª¥ÊùÉ“ÁöÑÂè£Â≠ê„ÄÇ‰ªñÂΩìË¢´ÂéÜÂè≤ËÆ∞‰Ωè„ÄÇ”)
