Security cordon still rings blind lawyer Chen Guangcheng’s home village of Dongshigu

Blind legal advocate Chen Guangcheng is 400 miles away in a Beijing hospital, waiting for his passport to travel to the United States, but the extensive network of guards put in place to keep supporters from visiting him in his home village is still in place. Chen says it’s because local officials don’t want word to spread of how he and his family had been abused before he fled to the U.S. Embassy last month.
