⁣"This Piano Is A CCP Free Zone" - Brendan Kavanagh Speaks Out Against China With Winnie The Pooh


⁣A recent viral video featuring the piano-playing artist Brendan Kavanagh has become a prime example of the Streisand Effect, where attempts to suppress information or art only serve to amplify its reach.

Brendan Kavanagh, a British pianist with 2.2 million followers on YouTube @DrKBoogieWoogie was live-streaming a public performance of his piano riffs when the group of Chinese nationals was incidentally captured in the background. The Chinese nationals asked him not to record them, insisting he did not have the right to share their images online.

The Piano was roped off and closed to the public before being reopened today when Brendan Kavanagh returned to play and made an impassioned speech.

Brendan Kavanagh explains to the assembled crowd that he is holding Winnie the Pooh because the beloved character "has been banned by the CCP.. this shows the power of the arts to undermine authoritarianism."

He said today's performance was "a blow for artistic freedom" and the piano at St Pancras had become "a CCP little pink freezone."
