Officials in China rounded up Internet users who had re-posted a call for protests and charged them with subversion as the authoritarian government continued its campaign to crush any Middle East-style democracy movement, activists said Wednesday.
A Chinese AIDS activist has been sentenced to a year in prison for smashing equipment at the hospital where he was infected, his lawyer said Saturday.
Liang Haiyi, an unemployed 35-year-old woman in the northeastern city of Harbin, was taken away Saturday after putting information about the call to protest on Chinese websites or chat rooms, said lawyer Liang Xiaojun, who was not representing Ms. Liang but had spoken to her ex-husband about the case.
"I don't think she's broken any law, she only re-posted someone else's writings on the Chinese Internet, and it wasn't her own writing," Mr. Liang said. "Anyone overseas can see these materials."
