联系方式: 186113974xx

住所地: 朝阳区望京西园415楼x9号

申请事项:申请公开扣押北京居民艾未未护照的法律依据和事实依据。

事实和理由:

2011年4月3日,艾未未在北京首都机场被北京市公安机关带走,在指定地点接受调查。艾未未被关押81天后被取保候审,其供职的公司被控逃税并处罚金共1522万人民币。经过一审二审后,雇用艾未未的公司的逃税指控成立。艾未未亦在2012年6月被解除取保候审。但至今艾未未的护照仍旧扣押在公安机关手中。为加强对本人的法制教育,申请人在此要求北京市公安局公开继续扣押艾未未护照的法律依据和事实依据。请贵局依照《中华人民共和国政府信息公开条例》第9条、第11条、第24条以书面形式答复申请人。违法不复将引来诉讼。

此致

北京市公安局

Debate.Org: Is Ai Weiwei the most important artist in the world right now?

Yes, I think so.

Ai Weiwei first of all is a human-kind just like you and me. And then he is an artist as a profession for living and social recognition. The instinct and right of expressing oneself are the basic characteristics of being a human. Expressing oneself is also a way of realizing oneself a human and differentiating human from animals. Ai Weiwei is living and working in the biggest country which still does not respect the basic human rights in the planet. Country like China not only jeopardizes its own people’s happiness but also influences life of all the people in the world. After the harsh punishment put upon him by China, Ai continues to fight for the basic rights, express himself and speak for his fellow citizens using the creativity of an artist. Without the systematic protection of the basic human rights, it is impossible to expect higher living or aesthetic standards-even you can do so, it is meaningless and deceptive. Ai Weiwei is the very artist who fights for the system that protects fundamental human rights and guarantees the human dignity. That is why I think he is the most important artist in the world today.
