Help us collect and spread the news

Filed under: News, Help us out — Rebecca MacKinnon @ 3:06 pm

A number of journalists are working on articles about Hao Wu’s detention - over one month now without charge. We’re expecting to see a lot more stories coming out over the next 24 hours.
As the coverage comes out on the internet we will link to it on this site as much as possible. If you find stuff we may not know about, please e-mail it to Meanwhile, we’d like your help in broadcasting the world’s support for Hao’s case. Here’s what you can do:

If you write blog posts, make podcasts, or upload photos to Flickr related to Hao, please tag them in Technorati and In English please use: freehaowu and in Chinese with 释放吴皓. For instructions about how to tag blog posts in Technorati click here.

For the growing number of blog posts and news articles about Hao’s situation, see also here and here on Technorati, here on, and here on Google News.

Volunteer Translators: If you have good language skills and would like to translate Chinese articles about Hao into English and vice versa. Please feel free. If you have a blog, post the translation there and let us know, or if you don’t, email us the translation and we’ll post it here.

… and don’t forget to stick a Free Hao Wu badge on your website!

Note: Many people have asked about a petition or letter-writing campaign. We have not done either yet because we cannot escalate our campaign without the consent of Hao’s loved ones. But if and when the time comes, we’ll be sure to announce it here.


  1. front-paged post about Hao on Booman Tribune (re-edited version of my earlier one) -

    Also a post up at No Quarter, with blog badge -

    I’ve asked some of the other blogging biggies but no responses yet. Three cheers to Booman and No Quarter for helping out.

    Not sure if this is the wisest course of action, given Hao’s previous comments about how his family is caught up in a deferential view of life. I suggest that you think seriously about what is in Hao’s best interest? I don’t want him to suffer longer than he has to…
