What does the future of Chinese digital activism look like? An unbelievably brave and audacious video that recently went viral on Sina Weibo, China’s Twitter may hold the answer. As Tea Leaf Nation reported, this video may herald the entree of Chinese low-wage workers into the culture of content creation and sharing that has already begun to empower comparatively young, rich, and educated netizens. 

Editor David Wertime recently spoke with Australian Broadcast Corporation’s (ABC) Huey Fern Tay about the import of this recent video. The below portion of radio show Correspondents Report aired Sunday on ABC. Please have a listen.
