Diplomatic crisis in China....

Another detention....
Outspoken Chinese government critic Hu Jia has been detained in the latest move by security forces against people linked to activist Chen Guangcheng, who is reportedly under US “protection.”

Just hours after Hu had told AFP on Saturday he believed his blind friend Chen was safe in the U.S. embassy in Beijing, his wife said on Twitter overnight that her husband had been taken away by the authorities.
Self-taught lawyer Chen fled house arrest on April 22 with the help of supporters from under the noses of dozens of guards, and subsequently recorded a video alleging abuses against him and his family.
And, here's a link to our Facebook page for our upcoming major event on China - When China Met Africa (Film) and China in Canada (Panel Discussion) on May 28th in Ottawa.
