US President Obama Visits China in November;

Call on the Nobel Peace Prize Recipient to Demand the Chinese Government Release all Prisoners of Conscience

US President Obama received this year’s Nobel Peace Prize on 9 October. He will visit Beijing and Shanghai on 15-18 November to meet with Chinese President Hu Jintao. The US House of Representatives had already passed resolutions to demand for the immediate release of Liu Xiaobo and Sichuan human rights defenders Tan Zuoran and Huang Qi who investigated the Sichuan earthquake last year.

We call on President Obama to live up to the objective of the Nobel Peace Prize and the duties it entails. When he meets with Chinese leaders, he should ask the Chinese government to release all prisoners of conscience, including Liu Xiaobo, Tan Zuoren, Huang Qi, Guo Quan, Xie Changfa, Gao Zhisheng, Hu Jia, Shi Tao, Chen Guangcheng, Guo Feixiong, Jin Haike, Lu Gengsong, Yang Tianshui and Zheng Yichun.

We are going to stage a demonstration outside the US Consulate General in Hong Kong to submit a statement co-signed by local and overseas groups together with a list of background information of the abovementioned 14 writers, human rights defenders and prisoners of conscience. We urge President Obama, who received this year’s Nobel Peace Prize, to request the Chinese government to release these people during his visit to China. We invite members of the media to report this action.

Date: 13 November 2009 (Friday)

Time: 11:30am

Venue: Peak Tram Station at Garden Road, Central, and march to the US Consulate General in Hong Kong
