China: Release Liu Shaoming (UA 145/15)

Human rights activist Liu Shaoming is being held by police, and the authorities have prevented his lawyer from meeting with him. He is at risk of torture and other ill-treatment. Liu Shaoming was detained shortly after publishing a piece online about his experience during the Tiananmen crackdown in 1989 and his work as a labor rights activist in China. 
1) Please write immediately in Chinese, English or your own language:
  • Calling on the authorities to release Liu Shaoming immediately and unconditionally;
  • Calling on them to ensure that pending his release, Liu Shaoming has regular, unrestricted access to his lawyers, family and any medical attention he may require, and is protected from torture and other ill-treatment.
