House Of Leading Chinese Rights Activist Demolished

From AFP:

Beijing authorities destroyed the home of leading rights activist on Friday as her distraught husband pleaded with the government to release her from jail.

Up to 200 police surrounded the home of the activist lawyer Ni and her husband Dong Jiqin as a bulldozer demolished the rest of the central Beijing courtyard home that Dong’s parents purchased in 1951.

Authorities had already razed much of it in April.

“The home is not so important, what is important is that Ni Yulan should be released from jail,” a visibly shaken and tearful Dong told AFP as he watched the razing of the home where he was born.
