A Beijing court has sentenced an activist to 9 months in jail for protesting at a court house. Wang Lihong was protesting the arrest and trials of bloggers who were arrested for libel. Her arrest and sentencing has been widely criticized as an crackdown on dissent by human rights activists. Miss Lihong's treatment mirrors the treatment of activists in the Orlando area. A crackdown on dissent by Judge Belvin Perry has resulted in the arrest and sentencing of two juror rights and free speech activists. Julian Heicklen and Mark Schmidter have both been sentenced by Judge Perry to approximately five months in jail. Hopefully the cases against Julian Heicklen and Mark Schmidter will be thrown out on appeal, however it is unlikely that either the Beijing injustice system or Judge Perry will ever be held accountable for their crimes.
