They now number 38: another cyber-dissident imprisoned


On October 14th, Chinese authorities sentenced Luo Yongzhong to prison for three years for “posting articles on the Internet [that attacked] the socialist system.” He authored over 150 articles on the web about current events, and some were quite critical of “Jiang Zemin’s triple representation principle.” Counting Luo Yongzhong, 38 people are currently imprisoned in China for comments they published online.
