Zhao Lianhai: we will not be silent

Categories: East Asia, China, Freedom of Speech, Human Rights

China Media Project has translated Chinese activist Zhao Lianhai's video calls for the release of Ai Weiwei and other Chinese dissidents who have been jailed and detained in recent months. Zhao is a victim of the 2008 poisoned milk scandal and has been sentenced to 2.5 years for “provoking social disorder” but was released on medical parole in December 2010.
