To Prime Minister Trudeau RE Uygurs in Xinjiang, China 致加拿大總理關於中國新彊維吾人公開信

Posted Posted in Facebook, News

Stand Up for human rights in Xinjiang and take actions to protect Canadians

Dear Prime Minister:

On behalf of Toronto Association for Democracy in China, we write to raise our deep concerns about the massive human rights abuse in Xinjiang (East Turkistan), China.

We are heartened when Canada became the first state to acknowledge China’s use of  ‘re-education’ camps to hold hundreds of thousands of Uyghurs. However, we are deeply disappointed that our government has not taken concrete actions to stand up for the Uyghurs in Xinjiang, and to protect Uyghur Canadians from the harassment in Canada by the Chinese government.

Coalition Letter to Foreign Minister Freeland RE Uyghurs 致加拿大外交部長關於維吾爾人的公開信

Posted Posted in Facebook, News

Dear Minister Freeland,

I write to you on behalf of the members of the Canadian Coalition on Human Rights in China listed below with an urgent request. As you know, China’s human rights record will be in the global spotlight tomorrow when the country is examined under the UN Human Rights Council’s Universal Periodic review process for the first time since 2013. As always, there are many pressing human rights concerns that merit attention as states present their questions and recommendations for reform to China. We have welcomed the opportunity to engage with your officials, as part of our annual consultation meeting and through written submissions, as to issues we hope Canada will highlight. (more…)

Condemn Chinese Government’s Safety Threat to Artist Badiucao 強烈譴責中共政府向巴丟草作人身恐嚇

We strongly condemn the Chinese Government's safety threat to artist Badiucao
Statement by Free Expression Week ‘Badiucao’ Art Exhibition

We are sorry to announce that the exhibition “Gongle,” by Chinese artist Badiucao, has been cancelled out of safety concerns.
The decision follows threats made by the Chinese authorities relating to the artist. Whilst the organisers value freedom of expression, the safety of our partners remains a major concern.
We regret having to make this decision, and hope there will be a chance for public to see Badiucao’s work in future.
Other Free Expression Week events will continue as normal.

要求釋放因悼念「六四」被捕人士聯署聲明

『八九六四』 一場從未結束的屠殺

「六四」29周年臨近,為之悼念,似乎是理所當然的事。然而,此時此刻,仍有人因悼念「六四」而身陷牢獄。
2016年,四川有四位朋友符海陸、張雋勇、羅富譽和陳兵製作了一款白酒,為其取名「銘記八酒六四」。他們於5月底透過互聯網銷售這枝自家製白酒,定價每兩瓶89.64元人民幣。就在他們發布了賣酒廣告兩天後,符海陸就在街頭被公案抓走。其後一個月間,為「銘記」做瓶身標貼和宣傳海報設計的羅富譽,有份出資和宣傳的張雋勇,以及一齊採購酒瓶等原材料的陳兵均先後被捕。他們的罪名,是「煽動顛覆國家」。 (more…)
