China holds dissident for filing lawsuit in US against Cisco involving abetting Chinese surveillance


Electronic Frontier Foundation has an important story about China’s detention of Du Daobin for bringing a lawsuit against Cisco in the U.S. for selling China tools to use against dissidents, including surveillance and blocking tools.

Daobin was also arrested for his pro-democracy blogging activities.
