China sentences “Vulgar Butcher” activist to 8 years prison – The Denver Post

BEIJING — A Chinese court on Tuesday sentenced a prominent activist known as the Ultra Vulgar Butcher to eight years in prison for subversion.

The Tianjin No. 2 Intermediate People’s Court found activist Wu Gan guilty of subverting state power and handed down his sentence. Wu will appeal the sentence, his lawyer Ge Yongxi told the Associated Press.

In court, Wu struck an irreverent note in his remarks following the sentence, saying he was “grateful to the party for granting me this lofty honor,” according to Ge, who was in court.
