release, release, release, give Xu Wei back his freedom #free Xu Wei -
One week ago, Xu Wei participated in the filming of my MV, acting as assistant cameraman to Christopher Doyle. So the horrible police undertook some shameless, shady work. -
Illegally disappearing people, illegally taking people into custody, with force, violence, regarding citizens' lives and human rights as dung and dirt. #free Xu Wei -
I don't want to live happy days anymore , Xu Wei, I'm coming to get you. -
At around 2AM last night, Xu Wei's girlfriend saw Xu at the local police station in Gaobeidian. The first thing he whispered into her ear was about Ai. Fucking hell. I'm on my way to Gaobeidian now, and then to the Civil Aviation General Hospital. Xu Wei stammered out a few words: "drank tea, naked, bruised". He was beaten by a number of police officers. You're so fucking hardcore, coming to find me, running into my friend, losing face. Now I'm going to the hospital to find you. Xu Wei, don't be afraid. -
To “drink tea” with the police is to be interrogated, usually regarding political activities. More here.
