Release Human Rights Lawyer from Chinese Prison

Target: Fu Zhenghua, Minister of Justice

Goal: Release Chinese human rights lawyer who has been imprisoned unjustly for two years.

A Chinese human rights lawyer has been unjustly imprisoned for over two years. Demand his release and demand that he be given proper legal representation so he can have the fair and equal trial he deserves.

Yu Wensheng had been detained for two years after writing an open letter condemning the nation’s government and calling for constitutional reforms. He was not given legal defense and his trial was held behind closed doors. There, he was sentenced to four more years in prison. The European Union became the first international group to demand his release and to demand an end to all arbitrary arrests in the nation.

Wensheng is not the first human rights lawyer to be illegally detained and charged without the benefit of legal counsel or a jury of his peers. But he should be the last. Join the EU in demanding his release and an end to arbitrary arrests.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Minister Fu,

Yu Wensheng has sat in prison for two years without the benefit of legal counsel. He was denied a fair and equal trial under the law, and now faces four more years in detention. He should be released immediately. His arrest, detainment, and trial all breach international human rights laws.

The European Union is demanding Wensheng’s release. I am joining them. Wensheng is not the first human rights lawyer jailed in your nation, but he should be the last.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
