Ai Wei Wei Cam in China

Ai Wei Wei is a famous Chinese artist who speaks his mind. He’s one of the ones responsible for the design of the Olympic stadium called the Birds Nest, and regrets his part in its design.
After disagreeing with the communists about many things, Ai WeiWei found himself in Chinese jails were he alleges he was tortured, a thing the Chinese jails have not outlawed.
He is under house arrest and has set up four webcams so we can watch over him. It’s a good idea really, for with the world watching, there is less of a chance that the jack booted thugs will pay him a midnight visit….yes the cams operate at night.
