  • Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “China’s Activist Artist | 101 East” – below is their description.

    From dirty water to air pollution and the rights of migrant workers – the artist known as “Nut Brother” is not afraid to tackle some of the most sensitive issues facing Chinese society.

    His art performances and installations shine a spotlight on issues that others would often prefer to keep in the shadows.

    But speaking out comes at a cost – he is under pressure from both his family and the authorities to abandon his art activism.

    101 East follows Nut Brother as he struggles to decide if he will continue to pursue his life’s work or whether the sacrifice is too great.
