Huang Qi is a pretty brave guy. He knew they would come for him again, and they did.
Initially the mission of the organization was to help counter human trafficking that had become a swelling problem in the late 1990s, but later it was expanded to include campaign against human rights abuse. Huang is also the owner and webmaster of 64tianwang.com , a website originally intended to release news about people who had disappeared in the People's Republic of China.
Huang was imprisoned by the government from June 2000 to June 2005 and again arrested in July 2008 for "illegal possession of state secrets" after he helped the victims of the Sichuan earthquake. In November 2009 he was sentenced to three years of imprisonment. He was subsequently described as a political prisoner; Amnesty International described him as a victim of vague state secrets laws.

The website isn't being updated, but you can see a lot of pictures of the protests and arrests that are pretty recent in China, up to last week.
