China: No Human Dignity, No Olympic

Clairewy reposted in her blog an article by Teng Biao (a Chinese Lawyer) about Hu Jia's arrest, which re-instated that “without human right and dignity, there is no genuine Olympic; for the sake of China, for the sake of Olympic, we have to defend human right.” (zh)

  • Teng points out, if I might add, that although the article “The truth about China prior to the Olympics” has both their names on it, it was Teng who first wrote it, with Hu later adding a few words about the rights of people with AIDS before signing his name. Teng says, if it’s this article which comprises Hu’s crime of “state subversion”, then come handcuff me now, because it has nothing to do with him.
