Toronto Rally on Li Wangyang’s Death

Canada-Hong Kong Link, Federation for a Democratic China (Canada), Toronto Association for Democracy in China, and China Rights Network will stage a rally in front of the Chinese Consulate at 240 St. George Street in Toronto at 12 noon this Saturday, June 16 (2012) to protest the sudden death of 62-year old Chinese dissident Mr. Li Wangyang at a Hunan hospital on June 6, just two days after the 23rd anniversary of the June 4 Massacre in Beijing.

Mr. Li Wangyang had been in jail for 22 years for active participation in the 1989 pro-democracy movement in Beijing and for organizing the Hunan Independent Workers’ Alliance. As a result of continuous severe torture in jail, he became blind, deaf and unable to walk.

The Hunan security department announced that Li had committed suicide, although there were numerous pieces of evidence against this official claim. Family members who asked for investigation into the real cause of his death disappeared soon after they made the request. Many other dissidents such as Hu Jia who commented on this case were interrogated by the security department or put under house arrest. A severe crackdown appears to be underway.

To join forces with the 25,000 people who marched on the street in Hong Kong last weekend to protest Li’s death, the Toronto-based community organizations will make a joint statement on Li’s death at the Saturday rally. They will also pay tribute to Mr. Li Wangyang in front of the Chinese Consulate. All are welcome to join the action.

六日十四日 – 就李旺阳”被自殺”事件新聞稿

港加联、民主中国阵线加拿大分部、多伦多支持中国民运会和中国人权网络将于本周六 (6月16日)中午12:00在中领馆前举行集会,抗议62岁的中国异见人士李旺阳被自杀。

李旺阳因积极参与八九民运和组织工自联而先后入狱22年。常年酷刑和虐待导致他失明、失聪、和失去独立行走能力。

6月6日距“六四”23周年纪念日仅两日,他被湖南当局宣布自杀死亡。各种证据显示他的死因可疑,他的亲属因要求调查死亡真相而被失踪。很多其他异见人士如胡佳等因评论此事件而受到传讯和软禁。迹象显示近期中国会进一步加強打压異見人士。

为响应上周在香港举行的二万五千人的抗议行动,多伦多社区民运组织将在本周六就李旺阳之死发表联合声明。团体並在中国驻多伦多总领馆前举行悼念李旺阳活动,欢迎各界人士参与!
