Another open letter to Leica

Leica, please immediately terminate your 60th Anniversary of the People’s Republic of China special edition cameras, crush them, and donate the crushed remains to Reporters Without Borders as paperweights.

Commemorating the 60th anniversary of a régime with a scandalous human rights and information freedom record is not compatible with the ideals of the Leitz family, who operated the Leica Freedom Train during the 3rd Reich era in Germany.

Seriously, it’s in very poor taste.
