Liu Xiaobo, author of Charter 08 and democracy activist for 2 decades, was sentenced to 11 years in prison for his political activism. Call on China to free him to accept his Nobel Peace Prize! @freeliuxiaobo
The Best of Chinese Dissident Harry Wu on Youtube
The world has resoundingly condemned the atrocities of the Nazi concentration camps, the Soviet Gulag, and many other systems of repression around the globe, but has remained largely silent on one of the most extensive and repressive prison camp system in the world: the Chinese Laogai. Since the early 1950s, China has used the Laogai to crush dissent and root out potential sources of opposition, whether political, economic, or religious in nature, while simultaneously exploiting prisoners as a source of free labor.
