Who is Liu Xiaobo?

BEIJING, Oct. 28 (Xinhuanet) — Liu Xiaobo, who was awarded the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize, has triggered people’s interest in who he is.

Liu, born in 1955, was a worker in his youth. He got his master’s degree in 1984 and began working as a teacher at Beijing Normal University. He got a doctorate degree in 1988. He attracted attention when he criticized some famous people.

In an interview by a Hong Kong based-editor, Liu said that Chinese people’s tragedy is not caused by "several fatuous emperors," but "every Chinese person", since the Chinese people created a system that caused their own tragedy.

Liu said that China needed to be a colony for 300 years to have a "real change". He then said that knowledge levels have nothing to do with academic degrees and most Chinese university students and graduate students were "garbage".
