Status: Released
Arrested between 16 Jul 2009 and 31 Jul 2009

Guo Baofeng was detained by police in Mawei, Fujian province, after he exposed a suspected local gang rape that resulted in the death of Yan Xiaoling. On July 22, netizen “Anti” (安替) sent a postcard to fellow netizen Guo Baofeng (郭宝锋, aka “Amoiist”), a blogger from Fujian Province recently detained for posting messages of support online for another detained blogger-activist. The postcard reads, “Guo Baofeng, Your Mother Is Calling You Home for Dinner”. The next day, another netizen, “Beifeng” (北风) , used Twitter to call on fellow netizens to follow Anti’s example and send Guo postcards with exactly the same phrase on them. By the end of July 23, 127 netizens had signed up to send postcards to Guo and alerted their friends about it by posting the same phrase on their Twitter and other microblogging websites. On July 31, Guo was released on bail.
