China puts more corruption activists on trial

Two activists in China associated with the New Citizen's Movement, Ding Jiaxi and Li Wei, are being put on trial for disturbing public order.  There is little detail regarding the incident that resulted in these charges.  Journalists were not allowed to cover the story and supporters of the two activists were being detained.  The New Citizens Movement rallies for civil and political rights, as well as the encouragement of government officials to disclose their assets to help combat corruption.
