Chinese Start Postcard Drive to Support Dissidents

From Reuters:

Chinese web users have launched a postcard campaign to support dissidents in prisons and to protest against their detention, one of the organizers told Reuters.

Chinese Internet activists launched their first postcard campaign last month, in a little-known case of a man detained in Fujian province in southern China.

They are now expanding the campaign to support better-known activists, including legal aid lawyer and earthquake victim advocate .

“It depends on the prison or detention house whether they can receive the postcards,” wrote , the blogger who initiated the idea.

“But pressure could be felt when huge amounts of postcards are flooding in.”
