"Chinese writer Chen Wei has gone on trial in Sichuan province, accused of 'inciting subversion of state power.' Mr Chen published several essays online calling for freedom of speech and reform of China's one-party system. He was one of hundreds of people arrested earlier this year when the authorities tried to put down the start of an Arab Spring-style uprising." (12/22/11)
