Hexie Farm (蟹农场) Series: The Politburo at War

Hexie Farm‘s latest entry in his CDT Series is a response to last week’s National People’s Congress meeting, which saw the dismissal of Chongqing Party Secretary and Politburo member Bo Xilai. The cartoon depicts the battle going on behind the scenes in the lead-up to the leadership transition at the 18th Party Congress later this year, when Bo was widely expected to be elevated to the Politburo Standing Committee.
