Fifteen Years Post Facto

It was fifteen years ago today.

Some background here and here. Unsurprisingly, a number of Chinese dissidents (which in this particular context inclues those who publicly say that running over unarmed protesters with tanks is a bad thing) have suddenly disappeared from view; this includes the doctor who became a national hero after blowing the whistle on Beijing’s SARS coverup.

One can only hope that said disappearances are only temporary.
