Chang Ping Under Pressure

As news comes that veteran journalist and CMP fellow Chang Ping (长平) has been prevented by authorities from writing for Southern Weekend and Southern Metropolis Daily, artist Kuang Biao (邝飚) depicts the writer’s predicament. Kuang writes: “When I heard the news a few days back, I drew this picture in a complete fury! I’ve said that I want to use caricatures to spend my remaining years recording what I witness in our society, because I am a comic artist who deals with current events. This person is a true citizen. And this is predicament right now . . . His name is Chang Ping.” The drawing was posted and shared by blogger Bei Feng.
