PAST: Rally for jailed Chinese Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, Liu Xiaobo on the Day of Award Ceremony in Oslo - FRI, Dec 10th 11:00am - 12:00pm

Rally in support of Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Liu Xiaobo on the day of Award Ceremony in Oslo
Friday, December 10th
11:00am - 12:00pm

A friend of mine is helping to organize this event and I definitely wanted to pass the info on for those of you who want to show your support for jailed Chinese Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, Liu Xiaobo.

The Chinese government is keeping Liu in jail and threatening world leaders not to attend the award ceremony in Oslo on December 10th. This rally is a chance to send a clear message to the Chinese government that its actions are counterproductive and inconsistent with fostering harmony and stability in China and within the world community. Representatives from international human rights organizations will join with DC area political and religious groups to demonstrate support for Dr. Liu and call for his release. Prominent Congressional and the human rights leaders will also speak. Organzied by the Victims of Communism.

Note, for those interested, a luncheon and forum on the future for democracy in China will be held at the Heritage Foundation from 12:30 to 2:00 following the rally. Connect with the folks at V.O.C. for details.
