Looking pale and thin from a four-day hunger strike, a leading democracy activist told a court Monday the sedition charge against him was ``unfair and incorrect,' sources close to his family said.

Chen Ziming, 38, began the hunger strike Thursday in an attempt to postpone the trial so that his lawyer would have more time to prepare a defense.Chen gave advice behind the scenes to the college students who led the 1980s pro-democracy movement. He was arrested in fall 1989, several months after the army crushed the movement.
