Fears for China’s Web Freedom

From RFA:

Writers in China said they feared a long hard road before real freedom of expression emerges in China, as authorities in the eastern province of Jiangsu formally arrested a prominent blogger who called for democratic change.

Paris-based media freedom group Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemned the arrest of blogger Guo Quan at his home in the eastern city of Nanjing.

Guo, who is currently being held in a Nanjing police station on a charge of “subversion of state power,” also had his home searched and his computer confiscated.
