Petition for Chen Guangcheng

To the Attention of:

President Hu Jintao
Prime Minister Wen Jiabao
Chinese Ambassador Mr. Zhang Yesui

Dear Sirs,

As you know, blind activist lawyer Chen Guangcheng exposed the massive, systematic use of forced abortions and involuntary sterilizations -- as many as 130,000 -- in Linyi City in 2005.  The Chinese Communist Party imprisoned Chen for four years and three months and has kept him and his family under strict house arrest since September, 2010.  On February 9, 2011 Chen released a video describing the deplorable conditions of his house arrest.  The next morning, Chen and his wife, Yuan Weijing, were “beaten senseless.”

We, the undersigned, are deeply concerned for the suffering and brutal treatment of Chen and his family.  We call upon the Chinese government to free Chen from house arrest immediately and to get him the medical care he so urgently needs. 

Thank you for your attention to this matter.
