李承鹏博客


Li Chengpeng ist Buchautor und Kolumnist. Er ist unter chinesischen Jugendlichen sehr populär und hat über eine Million Follower auf Weibo. 2008 recherchierte er über die mangelnde Bausubstanz der beim Erdbeben in Sichuan eingestürzten Schulhäuser. 2010 kandidierte er als unabhängiger Kandidat für das örtliche Landesparlament und veröffentlichte nachfolgend mehrere gesellschaftskritische Bücher. Nach der Veröffentlichung seines neuesten Buches "Die ganze Welt weiß Bescheid", wurde er mit einem Sprechverbot auf der Signiertour seines Buches bestraft. Aus Solidarität trugen die Besucher seiner "stummen Lesungen" genau wie er eine Atemmaske. Die beeindruckenden Szenen dieser Schweige-Events sind auf Youtube dokumentiert.

Блог Константина Рубахина


The blogger and environmental activist Konstantin Rubahin inspired the "Save Khoper" campaign, which aims to prevent copper-nickel mining in Russia's Voronezh region. Khoper is the name of a local river and national park. Because of its extraordinary fertile land Voronezh region is one of Russia's key agricultural areas. Ecologists and the local population fear that copper-nickel mining could endanger - or at least diminish - agricultural production. Since Russia is one of the biggest corn exporters worldwide, it could have an impact on global food security, activists say. Since the start of the campaign, local authorities and police have tried to intimidate Rubahin and his supporters with house-checks, interrogations and campaigns against them in local media and social networks.
