Free Ai Wei Wei
The petition demanding the release of Chinese artist Ai Weiwei has nearly 100,000 signatures. Here's how we know it's really gotten Beijing’s attention: For the past four days, the Change.org website has been repeatedly targeted by cyber attacks coming from China that aim to bring our site down, which would keep people from signing the petition. Our engineers are working around the clock to fend off the attacks and, for now, the petition is still up.
