China ‘jails democracy activist’

From BBC NEWS:

A Chinese activist has reportedly been jailed for 12 years for helping to organise anti-Japanese protests in China earlier this year.

The wife of Xu Wanping said he had been found guilty of incitement to subvert state power at a closed hearing.

Mr Xu, 44, was among a number of activists known to have been arrested as a result of the protests in April.

Demonstrators opposed Japan’s approval of textbooks which they said glossed over wartime atrocities it committed
