Spotlight: Badiucao, Chinese dissident
Months before the latest mass protests began in Hong Kong, the Chinese government shut down an art exhibition in the city. The work was by Badiucao, a Chinese-Australian artist living in Melbourne. He has since been harassed and intimidated in Australia, and his work has become a key part of the pro-democracy protests.
Guest: Chinese-Australia visual artist and political cartoonist Badiucao.
