Chinese Poet in Exile

Please take ten minutes to watch this short film of Chinese poet Huang Xiang who fled the Peoples Republic of China to Pittsburgh PA.

If his poetry and shouting annoys you remember that it annoyed the overlords in China enough to want to kill him.

I don't know what the woman in the video is talking about when she says that speech in America is being restricted. I suspect she doesn't know what she's talking about either. Huang Xiang knows about restricted speech though as do many in China.

Kudos to Josetxu for telling this story.
