Li Chenpeng macht Schlagzeilen

屏幕快照-2013-01-16-png

Gleich zwei neue Meldungen auf globalvoicesonline.org, über den bekannten chinesische Blogger und Regierungskritiker Li Chenpeng (李承鹏). Nutzerin Abby berichtete über eine stumme Autogrammstunde für sein neues Buch “全世界人民都知道” (Die ganze Welt weiß Bescheid) in der Li mit niemandem sprechen durfte.

Outspoken social critic and blogger Li Chengpeng recently released a new book: the Whole World Knows [zh]. Also known as an eloquent public speaker, Li delivered a bold speech on freedom of speech at China’s elite Beijing University last November. While the audience expected another speech at Li’s book signing event in his hometown of Chengdu in China’s Sichuan province on Jan 12 2013, what they saw was a silent Li with a mask on his face. His speech was censored.

Heute kam dann eine weitere Meldung von User owen, dass Li bei einem öffentlichen Auftritt angegriffen wurde.

On January 13, 2013 at a promotion event in Beijing for his book the Whole World Knows, 45-year-old Li Chengpeng, an outspoken critic and former soccer columnist, was slapped on the face by a man who said he was disgusted by the content of Li’s book.

The assailant, reportedly a former lawyer from China’s eastern Shangdong province, called Li a traitor. Close to the end of the book promotion, Li also dodged a knife wrapped in red paper hurled by a man. The two attackers were later detained by police.

Aus europäischer Perpesktive ist es wohl schwer zu verstehen, warum man ihn überhaupt hat auftreten lassen, wenn ihm bei Auftritten verboten zu sprechen. Vielleicht so eine Art Kompromiss angesichts seines Bekanntheitsgrads. Li hat 6,6 Millionen follower bei Weibo, der chinesischen Antwort auf Twitter.
