Liu Xiaobo is a Nobel Peace Prize-winning writer and human rights activist who currently remains a political prisoner in China. He was sentenced to 11 years in prison after penning the Charter 08, a manifesto calling for political reform and democracy in China. China immediately censored news of Liu’s Nobel Peace Prize award, blocked words such as "Norway" and "Nobel," and cracked down on those who celebrated his award. via @AJStream
