Should Yesterday's News be Forgotten?
For many people should or should not is not an option. They have had their few minutes of fame or infamy and where appropriate the world has made the appropriate noises but often the reason that catapulted them into the limelight still exists.
This is especially true for the Sichuan earthquake survivours.
I am therefore posting below the information sent to me by Lu Sun from the Louie Art Space.
This is not an official "Xing - All About Beijing" activity, nor a FC Club activity but I felt the necessity to tell people about the event.
I am planning on attending.
