Great Regulars: Yu [Yunfeng] was sentenced to a 10-day

administrative sentence by local police after he sent out a poem in May 2011, which called on the people of Harbin to embrace democracy and human rights.

After his release, he sent further verses to the cell phones of 28 other people, and was hauled in once more before being sent for "re-education through labor," a controversial police-run system of punishments of up to four years' duration without trial.
