Chinternet Meme: Office for Petitions and Appeals

The two major China stories of the past few months both began at outposts for U.S. diplomatic missions in China. In February, Wang Lijun went to the U.S. Consulate in Chengdu, the first chapter of the ongoing drama surrounding Bo Xilai‘s fall. When blind activist Chen Guangcheng made his daring escape from house arrest last month, he headed straight for the U.S. Embassy in Beijing. As these stories continue to dominate the headlines, this meme has been circulating on the Chinternet:
