Free Ai WeiWei - Avaaz International Boycott Petition

INEDITABLE PETITION to artists and gallery owners:
We urge you to stop exhibiting your art in China until Ai Weiwei is free. If the Chinese government is allowed to get away with the disappearance of its most famous artist, no other artist is safe, and no artist is free.
