One Response to “FREE Liu Xiaobo PEN demonstration NYC 42 St. Library”
Does NY PEN know Liu Xiaobo received hundreds of thousands of US government funding via the NED in the past five years? Check NED’s China grants for Independent Chinese Pen Center and Zhongguo Minzhu magazine, which Liu heads.
If Liu is American he’d be in violation of Foreign Agent Registration Act (FARA). Pray tell, why would we lament Chinese money corrupting our political process, while sending many folds more to China, to corrupt their political process?
This is by no means a straight foward case of free speech. Liu took foreign money the Chinese government has every right to prohibit (as we do under FARA.)
