AIDS in China and Censorship


Check The Guardian’s article for an interesting review of the censorship process Yan Lianke went through to publish not only Dream of Ding Village but many of the other books as well. Dream of Ding Village was banned and publishing his texts cost Lianke many consequences: being forced to leave the army, forced to write auto-critiques for four months, unpaid despite being promised money…

In addition, take a look at this short video explaining China’s AIDS Villages and the spread of AIDS because of the blood economy. The video clearly points fingers at the Communist Party, specifically past governor of Henan and Chinese Premier Li Keqiang, as the one to blame for the AIDS spread in China. We also get a real taste of what the reality portrayed in our novel really looks like.
