Mekong Review is a quarterly English-language magazine of arts, literature, culture, politics, the environment and society in Asia, written by people from the region or those who know it well. From its founding in 2015, its aim has been to provide a fresh perspective: one that covers Asian histories, lives and cultures through emerging regional voices. Its approach is close to that of publications like the New York Review of Books and the London Review of Books — that is, basing its writing around new publications of interest — but its view is distinctly Asian. Mekong Review’s writers live all over Asia and elsewhere; they provide a closer view of the region than those writing from London or New York.

Drew Pavlou hadn’t set out to be an activist, but now dedicates his time and energy to protesting against the Chinese Communist Party, upsetting plenty of Chinese nationalists on social media in the process. Minh Bui Jones catches up with him in London, where he’d originally been meant to attend a bail hearing in relation to allegations that he’d threatened to blow up the Chinese embassy, to find out how he emerged as an anti-CCP voice and why he has chosen to stay the course.
