I agree with this quote from the article, by another human rights advocate:  “What the authorities don’t appreciate . . . is that lawyers are leading these people to the courts, where their complaints can be resolved by rule of law. . . . People like Xu Zhiyong can only help the government solve some of the problems it faces.”
