A woman logs onto a computer information from bundles of remittance receipts sent to the home of Chinese dissident artist Ai Weiwei in Beijing, China, Monday, Nov. 7, 2011. Thousands of people have sent more than 5.3 million yuan ($840,000) to Ai, some tossing cash folded into airplanes over his gate, he said Monday, to help him pay a tax bill they see as government harassment. The Beijing tax bureau was demanding that he pay 15 million yuan ($2.4 million) in back taxes and fines.
