Seen this man? No one else has either.
His name is Yang Hengjun. Some say he’s China’s most influential political blogger. He disappeared recently while visiting the country from Sydney where he’s lived for the past few years.
Via the Atlantic:
Yang’s not the only critic of the Chinese government to go missing in recent days. When calls started appearing on the Internet for a Jasmine-style uprising, the state moved swiftly to end any such movement before it could begin. The New York Times reports that “the Chinese government has detained scores of rights advocates, political writers, lawyers and dissidents since late February … At least 25 people are being held for what Chinese officials call criminal investigation, but many others are being detained extra-legally, for no stated reason.”
