On July 24th, 2012, I drove to Xinyu, Jiangxi Province to cheer Liu Ping and two other local independent candidates and human right activists. While doing these things, we found ourselves tailed. At 12 o’clock at night, some policemen came to our room and started the so-called “room inspection”. As they began to knock at the door, I turned on a small camcorder which was prepared in advance. So this short film is the record of such a moment.
