中國異議人士、諾貝爾和平獎得主劉曉波先生,長期以來堅持非暴力方式爭取人權,呼籲政治改革。自八九民運至今,他為中國民主事業失去自由逾12年,在看守所、勞教所及監獄渡過近5,000日,未來尚有4年牢獄生涯。

劉曉波最近一次失去自由是2008年12月8日被帶走,於2009年12月25日,因草擬及聯署《零八憲章》,再次被中共以言入罪,以「煽動顛覆國家政權罪」重判11年徒刑。2010年,劉曉波成為首位中國異見人士獲頒諾貝爾和平獎。

當時評選委員會解釋劉曉波的獲獎理由時,表彰其「在中國為基本人權持久而非暴力的奮鬥」,「縱然身陷刑罰,劉曉波已經成為了方興未艾的中國人權奮鬥的標誌與豐碑。」這是對曉波的肯定,也是對所有在中共專政下奮勇爭取民主的肯定。

直到今天,曉波已繫獄7年。我們沒有忘記他,也不能讓國際社會忘記他。

支聯會發起「釋放劉曉波」一人一相運動,要求中共立即釋放劉曉波。每幅相是一個吶喊,一份力量。我們堅信:凝聚力量,定能帶來改變!

Mr. Liu Xiaobo, the Chinese dissident and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, has long been persisting on a non-violent approach to fight for human rights and call for political reform. Since the 1989 pro-democracy movement, he has lost his personal freedom for more than 12 years just for striving for China’s democracy and freedom. He has spent nearly 5,000 days in detention centers, labor camps and prisons. He gets 4 more years of incarceration ahead of him.

Mr. Liu Xiaobo was forcibly taken away on December 8th, 2008. On December 25th, 2009, because of his drafting “Charter 08″ and the subsequent petition movement, he was convicted by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) of the crime “inciting subversion of state power". He was sentenced to 11 years’ imprisonment. In 2010, he became the first Chinese dissident to receive the Nobel Peace Prize.

Nobel Committee gave the following reasons why Mr. Liu Xiaobo was selected for the Peace Prize. Mr. Liu was honored for his “striving for a lasting and non-violent struggle for basic human rights in China. Even though he was in prison, Liu Xiaobo has become a symbol and monument of China’s human rights struggle." Not only does this praise affirming Xiaobo, but also affirming all those people who have been courageously fighting for democracy under the dictatorship of the CCP.

Until today, Xiaobo has been imprisoned for 7 years. We do not forget him, nor let the international community forget him.

The Alliance launches the “Release Liu Xiaobo Photo Campaign”, and demands the CCP to release Liu XiaoBo immediately. Each photo represents a call and a force. We firmly believe that only could we join forces, we would bring the change!
