Writers Rally For Ai Weiwei at Brooklyn Public Library

Writers Sergio De La Pava, Jennifer Egan, Chang-Rae Lee, and Victoria Redel joined PEN American Center supporters on the plaza of Brooklyn Public Library on Thursday, April 10 to protest Beijing’s efforts to silence Ai Weiwei and other Chinese writers and artists. The group later marched handcuffed, to the nearby Brooklyn Museum to watch a never-before-seen video message from Ai Weiwei, projected onto the museum exterior by the Illuminator Truck made famous during the Occupy Wall Street protests.
