Great Regulars: Liao Yiwu (through translator): I was with people

who live in the bottom of the society. And when I came out of prison, I was also living at the bottom of society. I know these people, the people of really low social status. And in these people, I see my own shadow. I identify myself with them.

We are a deserted group of people, but we are the majority. The so-called elite don't care about us, but we are the mainstream of society.

from Jeffrey Brown: PBS: Newshour: Liao Yiwu Howls Against the Chinese Government, Offers Memories of Prison
