Net keeps Tiananmen spirit alive (Australian IT)

Catherine Armitage wrote a story on Australian IT, interviewed mostly Hu Jia, Liu Xiaobo, Han Dongfang and other activists who has been using the Net to express themselves. It mentioned one of the Internet petitions last year: initiated by Liu Xiaobo and others for the removal of Mao Zedong’s body from its mausoleum in Tiananmen Square. Although this particular petition is not considered likely to be successful any time soon. Liu, a veteran protester, sees greater activism by lawyers as a “very helpful phenomenon” in the struggle for civil rights, not least because the Government, committed to the principle of rule by law, takes notice of them.
