    Cai Lujun on Liu Xiaobo and the Chinese Freedom Movement (Part 1)


    Cai Lujun on Liu Xiaobo and the Chinese Freedom Movement (Part 1)






    I sat down with Chinese cyberdissident in exile, Cai Lujun, for a one on one interview on the Freedom Movement in China.


    In this segment (Part 1 of 2) Mr. Liu discusses Liu Xiaobo’s Nobel Peace Prize win, his recollections of the Tiananmen Square protest, and the event that sent him to jail for what the Chinese government called “Incitement to Subversion”.


    You can view Part 2 of this report here:


    Mr. Cai Lujun, age 42, is a member of the Chinese Dissident Community in exile. He was one of the first people in China to be sent to prison for posting articles critical of the Communist Party of China on the internet. He served a three year prison sentence from 2003-2006 in Hebei Province, just outside Beijing. Following his release, Mr. Cai fled China as a result of continual persecution. Today in Taiwan, the Republic of China, Mr. Cai is essentially a non-entity – a stateless person: a man with no passport, no work permit, no country and no rights. Like unto this years Nobel Peace Prize winner, Liu Xiaobo, Mr. Cai has willingly exchanged his own personal freedom for a message. A message he has shared with us in this report.
