Translation of tweet by Woeser http://bit.ly/cttybk
Dear friends on Twitter, I’m finally back online! Thanks to all of you who showed concern for me over the last 3 days, thank you to lawyer Li Fangping, thanks to the media for reporting, in brief, nobody came for me, my internet connection “broke and was repaired”, a car appeared from early morning till late at night outside my door, I was followed everywhere but it seems that nothing too bad has happened, thanks to all! http://www.twitlonger.com/show/6pou3m

November 3, 2010 – Update from the Twitter feed of @tengbiao:

Woeser, who is in Lhasa at the moment, is allowed to leave her house but is followed by security agents. Her internet is still down, Woeser has complained, the internet company says they are repairing her connection. http://www.twitlonger.com/show/6pmlqc

Just talked with Woeser. Things are normal −aside from not being able to access internet. The internet repair people have been postponing. Some friends think that “coming to her door with paperwork’ can be a tactic to scare her− in order to get her out of Lhasa sooner than later. She said that some people had often dialled that same number of harassment she posted. Since then one gets busy signals while dialling the number. http://www.twitlonger.com/show/6p7b03


“Urgent: Someone on the Phone
Claiming to be from Lhasa City Public Security Bureau Summoned Me”

By Woeser

At 11:11am, mobile phone number 13989990059 called me on my mobile.
The caller claimed to be from Lhasa City Public Security Bureau and immediately summoned me to the Public Security Bureau.
I asked why I was being summoned.
He said that there was something he needed to discuss with me.
I said I would not go, I had no reason to go to the Public Security Bureau.
He said of course there is a reason, you know what you have done.
I said I had not done anything illegal. I said that if they wanted to come to see me that was fine but they had to follow the correct procedures.
He said yes, we will come and we will follow the correct procedures.
At this point I can’t get on Twitter.
Readers of my blog, please pass on this message and also put it on Twitter.
Thank you!
