Chen Guangcheng Under US Protection, "Pivotal Moment" for Administration's Commitment to Human Rights in China



Saturday, April 28, 2012

China Aid Association
(Beijing—April 28, 2012) ChinaAid learned from a source close to the Chen Guangcheng situation that Chen is under US protection and high level talks are currently under way between US and Chinese officials regarding Chen's status.

"This is a pivotal moment for US human rights diplomacy,” said Bob Fu, ChinaAid President.  "Because of Chen's wide popularity, the Obama Administration must stand firmly with him or risk losing credibility as a defender of freedom and the rule of law.  If there is a reason why Chinese dissidents revere the US, it is for a moment like this."
 
ChinaAid hopes the Administration will honor Chen's wishes, ensure his safety, and make sure that Chen's family does not suffer reprisals. Chen's case should be handled like professor Fang Lizhi and not become another Wang Lijun.
