1) TAKE ACTION
Write a letter, send an email, call, fax or tweet:

  • Ensure that Dong Guangping is either released or tried in line with international fair trial standards, and not for the peaceful exercise of his human rights;
  • Ensure that, while in detention, Dong Guangping is not subjected to torture or other ill-treatment and has regular, unrestricted access to his family, lawyers of his choice and medical care on request or as necessary;
  • Cease requesting other countries to return individuals to China in violation of international law.
