Hexie Farm (蟹农场): Half Mast
For his latest contribution to the Hexie Farm CDT series, cartoonist Crazy Crab pays homage to the recent detention of Beijing-based fund manager Zhai Xiaobing for posting a political joke on Twitter during the 18th Party Congress, and the sentencing of dissident poet Li Bifeng to twelve years in prison. In the drawing, a flag in the shape of a speech bubble flies at half mast, marking the death of free speech.
