The outspoken Ai, 53, was the artistic director for the “Bird’s Nest” Olympic Stadium, but he later turned critical of the Games.
I've heard of Ai, he was one of the whistleblowers concerning the shoddy construction especially of schools which caused so many deaths during the Sichuan earthquake. Once you make the CCP's shitlist you'll be watched like a hawk for the rest of your life and clamped down on hard whenever any size protest flares up, even if it's just a question of tweets implying approval.

There's little stomach for another revolution in today's China though.
