RFA: New Year Letter Slams Party

Chinese activists want colleagues released during the Year of the Tiger.

“The government has made little effort to change in the past year,” wrote the Sichuan and Chongqing-based activists in an open letter to China’s leaders released online during the Lunar New Year holiday.

“It continues to use oppressive measures against justice in order to protect its dictatorship,” the activists wrote, in particular with regard to the 11-year jail term handed to Liu Xiaobo, who helped draft Charter 08, a document calling for sweeping political change in China.
