Free Hao Wu!

Hao Wu, a Chinese documentary filmmaker and blogger who lived in the U.S. between 1992 and 2004, was detained by the Beijing division of China’s State Security Bureau on the afternoon of Wednesday, Febuary 22, 2006. Authorities have not given Wu Hao’s family an explanation for the detention despite numerous inquiries. It is Day 58 of his detention, and his friends and colleagues at Global Voices have started a letter-writing campaign and a petition drive to free him. I am signing up, and I hope you do too!
