Strawberry Canceled, etc.

As you have perhaps already heard, the Strawberry Festival in Suzhou/Wujiang this weekend has been canceled, with a dubious technical explanation. CMR links to reports of other recent cancellations in Beijing, and with the recent warning to JZ musicians that the police will be checking the papers of foreigners performing in Shanghai, this seems to add up to something. Whether the two are connected to each other, to the events at the folk festival that CMR mentions, to the recent detention and fining of Shanghai musicians who were in Chongqing for a gig (and who were allegedly only released after performing “Hotel California” at the police station), or recent events of a grander scale in this country and around the world, who knows–kind of scary and pretty frustrating though.
