2 Prominent Women Under Detention Are Hospitalized.Two prominent women — Liu Xia and Cao Shunli — were hospitalized in poor health this week, after months or years of detention, according to their lawyers and friends. Ms. Liu, 52, the wife of the jailed Nobel Peace laureate Liu Xiaobo, has been under effective house arrest for three years as her husband serves an 11-year jail term for “inciting subversion of state power.” She was hospitalized on Tuesday, or Sunday — accounts vary — with severe depression and a heart ailment. Her emotional and mental state has long been regarded as fragile by supporters. Ms. Cao, 52, a former cadre at the now-disbanded Ministry of Labor and Manpower, was detained after she took part in sit-down protests last year outside the Foreign Ministry, where she and others called for ordinary Chinese to be allowed to contribute to an assessment of human rights in China, part of the United Nations’ Universal Periodical Review. The protests had failed — Chinese officia ...
We're all Liu Xia -- prominent Chinese activists shave their heads to show support to Liu Xiaobo's wife.
China angry at Obama's meeting with Dalai Lama..Criticism is part of continuing campaign to marginalize the Tibetan spiritual leader for his support of greater autonomy for Tibet.Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying reiterated those remarks at a regular press conference today in Beijing. Beijing remains determined to limit the Dalai Lama's international influence and pressures governments worldwide not to meet the Buddhist monk it has called a "wolf in sheep's clothing." China responded to a visit granted the Dalai Lama in the United Kingdom by putting diplomatic relations into cold storage for over a year after Prime Minister David Cameron met him in May 2012. Countries next in China's firing line over Tibet include the Netherlands and Norway, which the Dalai Lama will visit in May. Beijing has given Norway years of diplomatic and business grief after the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize award to jailed Chinese dissident Liu Xiaobo. His wife Liu Xia, held under effective house arrest ever since, and never charged wi ...

“Saving Liu Xia 2014” Launched   Issued by     Liuxiaobo.net Friends of Liu Xiaobo Citizen Power for China/Initiatives for China   Dec.10, 2013 the International Human Rights Day   According to Reuters and other media, as well as her own letters that have been smuggled out of China, Ms. Liu Xia, the wife of the imprisoned Nobel Peace Laureate Liu Xiaobo, is suffering from severe depression and is on the verge of a nervous breakdown. The source of her stress is not only her husband’s imprisonment and the persecution of her family, but the fact that the Chinese government has kept her under house arrest ever since her husband won the Nobel Peace Prize three years ago.   During these three years her movements have been severely restricted. She cannot go anywhere without a police escort. No one can visit her home. No one can call her and she cannot call out. Even the letters that she and her husband write to each other every week are confiscated.   Liu Xia has never been charged with a crime, yet ...

Nobel laureate Liu Xiaobo Dark matter Dec 6th 2013, 3:32 by G.E. | BEIJING The Economist: A long way from his rightful place EVERY year at this time The Economist publishes an annual almanac predicting big events and trends to watch out for in the year coming. I’m publishing here a companion piece of the sort you won’t find in The World in 2014, because it is about the absence of change. For Liu Xiaobo, 2014 does not figure to be a special year. He is expected to endure it in the same way as he has this year. The same may be true for his wife, Liu Xia, though she manages on occasion to make herself heard, including a recent request for some basic freedoms. Mr Liu was arrested five years ago this week, and he was sentenced four years ago this month. He has not been heard from directly since. At the ceremony awarding him the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize (pictured) his absence was marked by the empty chair he should have been sitting in. Uttering his name is in itself a political act. Perry Link, an eminent Am ...

One of the heroes of our era is Liu Xiaobo, the Nobel Peace Prize-winning dissident imprisoned in China. The Chinese government has been trying to break his spirit by harassing his brave wife, Liu Xia, and more-or-less keeping her under house arrest. Now China has imprisoned her brother for 11 years. I hope the word will go out to Liu Xiaobo and Liu Xia that the world stands with them and not with their tormentors.

The Nobel Peace Prize 2010 Liu Xiaobo If I may be permitted to say so, the most fortunate experience of these past twenty years has been the selfless love I have received from my wife, Liu Xia. She could not be present as an observer in court today, but I still want to say to you, my dear, that I firmly believe your love for me will remain the same as it has always been. Throughout all these years that I have lived without freedom, our love was full of bitterness imposed by outside circumstances, but as I savor its aftertaste, it remains boundless. I am serving my sentence in a tangible prison, while you wait in the intangible prison of the heart. Your love is the sunlight that leaps over high walls and penetrates the iron bars of my prison window, stroking every inch of my skin, warming every cell of my body, allowing me to always keep peace, openness, and brightness in my heart, and filling every minute of my time in prison with meaning. My love for you, on the other hand, is so full of remorse and regr ...
