First the party, then the hangover – Southern Weekly

Activists who supported the revolt by journalists at the Guangzhou-based Southern Weekly have been detained by the government for inciting social chaos.

From the South China Morning Post:

Police detained at least a dozen people on charges of subversion and illegal gathering for participating in activities in support of the embattled Guangzhou-based Southern Weekly this week, activists said yesterday.

…”They said we were creating social chaos,” Ren said. “They said if I do anything similar again, they will lock me up.”
