Looking for the missing sunflower seeds

On Saturday 9 April, London-based artists, writers andactivists spread a thousand of posters of 'Free Ai Weiwei' at Tate Modern on the artist's installation of a billion of sunflower seeds. Later, they invited 50 volunteers to read out the names of the disappeared dissidents to call for the immediate release of Ai Weiwei and all those who have been detained,arrested, or ‘disappeared’ by the Chinese regime.
