Wuer Kaixi To Seek Re-entry to China

Reuters reported today that Wuer Kaixi announced that he will try to re-enter China and is prepared to serve a prison sentence.
"I will keep trying. There will be more actions to come," Wu'er Kaixi, 42, told a news conference in Taipei, without giving specifics. "There will be elevated actions."
Like many Tiananmen student leaders, Wuer Kaixi was never allowed to visit China since his escape in 1989. Unlike other dissidents in exile, however, his parents were never permitted to travel abroad either. So, he hasn't been able to see his family for 21 years.

For the last two years in a row, Wuer Kaixi has made unsuccessful attempts to turn himself in to the Chinese authority on the dates of Tiananmen anniversaries.

He said, "I want to see my parents even if it has to be a prison visit."
