Appeal for democracy activist Liu Xianbin

Posted on April 1, 2011


Dear Reader,

Hope you have had a pleasant weekend so far!

Now you have the chance to help the Chinese democracy activist Liu Xianbin and hopefully change his situation. Send the following text to with a copy to a Chinese embassy accredited to your country which you can find here

Thanx in advance!

Dear President,

The reason for me contacting You is my concern over veteran democracy activist Liu Xianbin. It has come to my knowledge that he was sentenced to 10 years imprisonment and to two years and four months deprivation of political rights. I consider him a prisoner of conscience, and I see his sentence a mockery against the International Law.

Therefore I urge You to:
release Liu Xianbin immediately and unconditionally.
guarantee his safety whilst he remains in prison.
guarantee that he has access to his lawyers and his family.
take effective measures to ensure freedom of expression in line with Chinese constitutional guarantees and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR), which China has signed and declared an intention to ratify in the near future.

Yours Sincerely,
