China: Free Liu Xiaobo

A new website, Free Liu Xiaobo Now!, initiated by some members of Chinese PEN, that collects all sorts of information concerning Liu Xiabo.

    What the ICP site doesn’t mention is the fact Liu Xiaobo took over $650k from the US government to advocate abolition of China’s constitution.

    Under our own law (FARA), financial sponsorship by foreign power, in part or whole, substantiates foreign agent status. But such law to safeguard sovereignty doesn’t apply to China, right?

    Evidence of Liu Xiaobo taking several hundred thousand dollars from the US government is available in the NED’s own China grant publication.

    Now, how would we feel if China paid someone to advocate abolition of the US constitution? Give him the Nobel Peace Prize?
