Latest Hao Wu Update

This is not exactly good news. But because there has been no word from Hao, because the attempts of his family to handle this quietly and without too much outside publicity have not worked, the campaign to free him is escalating with a letter-writing campaign and a petition to President Hu Jintao for Wu Hao's immediate release. President Hu will be visiting the United States from April 18th through the 21st. Originally the hope was that he would consider releasing Wu Hao as a gesture of good-will in advance of that visit. Obviously this hasn't happened. Whether this is because Hao's detention is especially sensitive or because it simply hasn't been brought to Hu Jintao's attention is impossible to say. But now is the time to try and get some publicity for Hao.
