I wrote yesterday about my friend Brian Conley detained by the Chinese government, along with his colleague Jeff Rae and several other journalists and artists. If you're a US citizen, please call the US Congressional Foreign Affairs Committee on +1 202 225 5021 to register your concern. Please ask them to urge the Chinese government to respect the rights of those held and to release them promptly.

Update: According to the AFP, six foreigners have been given ten days detention for “upsetting public order”.
