December 10, 2010
What: Urgent rally in support of jailed Chinese Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, Liu Xiaobo! Representatives of international human rights organizations will join with Washington D.C. area political and religious groups to demonstrate support for Dr. Liu and call for his release. Prominent Congressional and human rights leaders will speak.
Where: Victims of Communism Memorial, Massachusetts Ave. and New Jersey Ave., Washington, DC.
When: 11am-12pm. A luncheon and forum on the future for democracy in China will be held at the Heritage Foundation from 12:30 to 2:00 following the rally.
The awarding of the Nobel Peace Prize to Liu Xiaobo is a defining moment in the long struggle for democracy in China. The Chinese government is keeping Liu in jail and threatening world leaders not to attend the award ceremony in Oslo on December 10. We must come together to urge the Administration to send a clear message to the Chinese government that its actions are counterproductive and inconsistent with fostering harmony and stability in China and within the world community.
