Ai Weiwei’s prescience: an account of an arrest foretold

Followers of Ai Weiwei may have already read these blogposts (translated to English) from the mid- and late-2000s, here reprinted at The China Story, within a chapter on China and the blogosphere. TCS is published by the Australian Center on China in the World at the Australian National University. The reprinting of these texts, in the context of the publication of the Center’s annual Yearbook, may have contributed to the censorious approaches to the Australian Government, and the Center directly, made by representatives of the Chinese Embassy in Australia. The Center has now published its correspondence on these events here.
