phpgiTF0BPM.jpgThere's finally some word on James Powderly and five “citizen journalists” (not the other five artists), together dubbed the Beijing Six, who were detained in China for their Free Tibet protests. The AFP reports that "Beijing police said Thursday it had handed out 10-day detention terms to six foreigners believed by an overseas activist group to be pro-Tibet campaigners involved in Olympic protests this week." F.A.T. has a statement Powderly made on video prior to being detained, in which he says, "I'm participating in this non-violent direct action because as an artist I've taken the role of an engineer that builds tools to allow people who don't have a voice to express their voice in the public sphere."
