I'm not kicking Bo Xilai while he's down. No matter how you look at it, he’s a political prisoner too, even if it wasn’t exactly a thoughtcrime.





By the time you saw me, the trial was already over. //animalfarm1984a: Weiwei, as an officer handling Bo Xilai, do you think the trial still is as planed?

Bo Xilai has met with misfortune. A little regretful that I shouldn't sing the "Getting An Erection" song.





Exactly, if not it is not impartial and of great harm to society. RT //fightcensorship: //zaladdaze We don't insist death penalty, just want to know everything which under table deal between.





RT @fightcensorship: I mean Chinese government plays a game that shows own people that UK is witness, and they didn't say anything.





degenerate //sunrrrr: The British statement starts off in line with The People's Daily, the globalization of playing jokes on the public RT //aiww I oppose the death penalty, and in the same way I despise Britian for trampling on the courts and playing jokes on the public. RT //zaladdaze: What's your point - to be fair the death penalty should be applied to Gu? //delavegaprophet

La, la, la RT //sanjuhexie: They don't want human rights, but fight for sovereignty. Every part of their body is useful. RT //aiww While alive they get Anti-Japanized. When they die they get von Hagens. The perfect image of today's China.





The link between loving and not loving. RT //Aspirin_Zhu: What's the link between Gunther von Hagens and Häagen Dazs?





While alive they get Anti-Japanized. When they die they get von Hagens. The perfect image of today's China.





I don't have a feeling [about the outcome] RT //chenshǐ6: //aiww I am guessing it will be the death penalty~ What do Auntie think?





A succesful example case RT //universaljames: //aiww It won't get to that now will it?Will the entire fucking people cover this case up?There are so many people who care about this case! At best it will a leisure topic of conversation.





How was this brain damage forged?RT //Camelliayang: //aiww A pile of dung dung is coming out of the oven~~ I really don't get what they will do except to mutilate our compatriots.





They are using Anti-Japanese sentiments to obscure the Bo Xilai-Gu Kailai case.
