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

  • Li Zhan, Mi Jiuping, Yu Juncong and Fu Changguo have regular, unrestricted access to their families and lawyers of their choice while in detention;
  • The families and lawyers of the four men are informed of the progress of their cases;
  • Ensure that the four men are either released or tried in line with international fair trial standards, and not for the peaceful exercise of their rights to freedom of expression and assembly
