The Wall Street Journal’s Real Time China blog reports that environmental activist Wu Lihong is out of jail and back to his work raising awareness of the pollution in Lake Tai:
A month after getting out of jail in April, Mr. Wu was back at it, inviting foreign journalists to take pictures of the brown scum pouring out of factory pipes into waters filled with garbage and dead fish.
He was tailed again, and warned to stop, he says.
It’s hard to gauge the success or failure of Mr. Wu’s campaign. He has been able to recruit plenty of global media attention. But the condition of the lake seems little improved, despite government pledges to fix the problem.
