Last year in Fuzhou, Fujian Province, a 25-year-old woman was found dead. Her mother suspected that she was mass raped by a gang that had connections with the local police, but officials said she had died from “ectopic pregnancy.” Three bloggers spread information online that they felt proved that there had been a criminal act. They were thrown in jail for slander.
This week, the last of the three Fujian netizens was released. Filmmaker He Yang released an hour-long documentary, Herzog Days that tracks the trial and everything else. Global Voices pointed us to the video, which can be viewed with English subtitles.
