A little bit of activism?

PEN America has initiated a campaign to free 38 writers and journalists from prison in China, by delivering a petition to the Chinese Consulate in New York on April 30, 2008 – 100 days before the Beijing Olympics Opening Ceremonies. The petition requests the release of those jailed writers, and seeks an end to internet censorship and other restrictions on freedom of expression in China. Have a second? Chime in here.
