BACKGROUND INFORMATION:
Ai Weiwei is a world renowned artist who spoke for the victims of the tainted milk powder scandal of 2008 in China and of the thousands of school children who died during the 2008 Sichuan earthquake as a result of substandard school buildings. 
His outspoken critique of the government of the Peoples Republic of China has caused him to be now detained on some as yet to be determined trumped up charges.
Over 100,000 people have signed the petition started by Guggenheim Foundation    http://www.change.org/petitions/call-for-the-release-of-ai-weiwei
However, cyber attack has hacked the site; check if it is back up.
