Detained by Chinese police on live TV for mentioning the Tiananmen Square massacre.
What I found most interesting is when they stopped him from his “media work” (really a live broadcast) because of some obscure rule about needing permission to film in the park. I’m sure such rules exist here already, for example, there are certainly rules about filming on the tube, and in (safe European) Barcelona about taking photos on their metro. It reminds me of a certain Dr Ferris [1:07] a fictional character that tried to obtain power by siding the aristocracy. An aristocracy that set up an impossible web of laws to render everyone criminals.
I do hope Mr Stone makes it out alive, he did rather well during the rioting in Battersea’s Clapham Junction, confronting two young female rioters outside the Wimpy on Lavender Hill. In both scenarios the threat to his life was not immediately obvious, but very real. Mr Stone is either slightly reckless and unthinking, or has balls of steel.
UPDATE: they let him go.
