ChinaAid’s Bob Fu to Testify at 2nd Congressional Hearing in Two Weeks on Chen Guangcheng

Friday, May 11, 2012

China Aid Association
(Washington, D.C.—May 11, 2012) ChinaAid founder and president Bob Fu has been invited to testify at a Congressional hearing on blind Chinese lawyer and activist Chen Guangcheng next Tuesday, the second such hearing in two weeks since Chen miraculously escaped his government captors.

The U.S. House Committee on Foreign Affairs, Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health & Human Rights is holding the hearing on Tuesday May 15 at 1 p.m. in Room 2172 of the Rayburn House Office Building.

The hearing on “Chen Guangcheng: His Case, Cause, Family, and Those Who are Helping Him” is open to the public, and ChinaAid encourages all supporters of Chen and any other interested parties to attend.

At least three other witnesses are scheduled to testify, including veteran Chinese dissident Wei Jingsheng (now founder and chairman of the Overseas Chinese Democracy Coalition) and Tiananmen Square democracy movement commander-in-chief Chai Ling (now founder and All Girls Allowed, which seeks to end China’s one-child policy). Reggie Littlejohn, founder and president of Women’s Rights Without Frontiers, also an anti-one-child policy group, is also on the list of witnesses.

Fu’s appearance at the Tuesday hearing on Chen follows a similar hearing on May 3 of the Congressional-Executive Committee on China, when Chen was able to speak to the hearing directly via Fu’s cellphone and to clearly state his wish that he and his family be allowed to come to the United States.

Also on Tuesday May 15, Fu will be a panelist at a morning event sponsored by the George W. Bush Presidential Center’s Freedom Collection. George W. and Laura Bush will both be speaking at the event as well, which is to be held at the new building for the Council on Foreign Relations in Washington, D.C. from 10 to 11:30 a.m.
