For his latest contribution to the Hexie Farm CDT series, cartoonist Crazy Crab comments on the recent protests against censorship centered around the Southern Weekly newspaper. Xi Jinping is pictured walking a tightrope across the gulf between the “harmonious society” espoused by Hu Jintao, and the “rejuvenation of the Chinese nation” that Xi has made a predominant theme of his administration so far. As he maneuvers the dangerous journey, he is almost thrown off balance by the protesting netizens, depicted as angry birds.
