    In wake of a renewed COVID-19 lockdown, Chinese citizens protested openly in the streets the past several days.

In response to his role in the translation, since 1996 he has been blacklisted by China. He is a board member of the Committee for Freedom in Hong Kong.

    “There is a false narrative, which is ‘if you improve yourself, you won’t get incarcerated,’” said Farah Godrej, an associate professor of political science. “Inside prisons, this idea of self-improvement is used in a way that’s insidious. It becomes an apparatus for telling incarcerated persons that incarceration is their own fault.”
