Activisit Feng Zhenghu Caught Between China & Japan

I’ll just say it first. It’s like the Chinese version of Steven Spielberg’s The Terminal where one passenger is caught between two countries, unable to enter one country and unable to return back where he came from. Except this time, Chinese activist and economist Feng Zhenghu refuses to pass through Narita airport customs to enter Japan because the Chinese government is refusing to let him come home. Feng believes that his background in human rights against China is illegally keeping him from returning to his family, even when he came as far as landing at the Shanghai airport before officials forced him to return. It’s been over two weeks since Feng first holed up in Narita and you can read the full heart-wrenching story in the LA Times.

About Moye

I am a Japanese-American girl who was born, raised and is most probably stuck in traffic right this second in Los Angeles. I'm currently one of the co-editors of 8Asians and like to distract myself with good food, reading long books, playing video games, catching up on celebrity news, choosing my new new haircut and then writing all about it on Hello Moye and sometimes here on Twitter if I can get it in under 140 words or less. You can reach me at moye[at]
