Update: Further Censorship of Ai Weiwei’s Project

China Geeks posts about the increasing harassment of Ai Weiwei over his work to collect the names of children killed in last year’s Sichuan earthquake:

Yesterday, he posted a timeline of official messages from the last few days, informing him that his posts have been deleted. The messages appear to be automated, but the speed and thoroughness with which things are deleted is intimidating. There’s no point in translating it — it’s just a list of article titles with generic messages like “Your post has already been deleted by the moderator. We apologize for the inconvenience” — but we’re copy pasted the whole thing below just in case someone takes the same censorship knife to Ai Weiwei’s blog.
