The video above is one the Amnesty Blackheath and Greenwich group made in support of Zao Ghisheng.
For nearly a decade Gao Zhisheng was one of China’s top lawyer. He won awards and was respected by the people and government alike. But he became increasingly outspoken about human rights abuses in the country. And for this he has been severely punished.
He was imprisoned without his family knowing where he was. He was brutally tortured. And he and his family were put under illegal house arrest. In 2009 he disappeared and again his family didn’t know where he was. In 2011 it was revealed that he was in prison, where he remains to this day. Please show your support for Gao today:
