Hexie Farm (蟹农场): The Rotten Tree
For his latest contribution to the Hexie Farm CDT series, cartoonist Crazy Crab comments on President Xi Jinping’s stated commitment to rooting out corruption, while also targeting activists who call for the declaration of officials’ assets as a means to achieve that goal. Here Xi is depicted as a rotten tree (with corruption at the root), with a Pinocchio-style nose declaring his stated political goals. Yet when a protester approaches calling on officials to declare their assets, he or she falls into a trap.
