Shanghai Family Planning Rights Activist Starts Hunger Strike in China Labor Camp

Posted by Author on May 26, 2010

Human Rights in China (HRIC), May 26, 2010 –

Shanghai-based petitioner and rights defender Mao Hengfeng (毛恒凤)  has started a hunger strike at the Hefei Municipal Women’s Reeducation-Through-Labor (RTL) Camp, her lawyer Liu Peifu (刘培福)  told Human Rights in China (HRIC). Liu said that Mao was protesting the haircut that was forced upon her and the uniform she was required to wear. Liu and Mao’s husband, Wu Xuewei (吴雪伟), went to visit Mao at the camp on May 24, 2010, but only Liu was allowed in. This was the first time Liu had been permitted to see Mao since she was first detained three months earlier. The camp authorities told Wu that he would not be permitted to see his wife as long as she disobeys camp rules.

Liu said that Mao was very weak and unable to stand up. She requested to be returned to Shanghai and authorized Liu to file an administrative suit with the Shanghai Municipal People’s Court of Huangpu District to overturn the RTL decision. Liu said that the RTL camp officials redacted much of the contents in the authorization document written by Mao before allowing him to take it from the camp.

In March 2010, Mao was ordered by Shanghai authorities to serve one-and-a-half years of RTL for “disturbing social order” by shouting slogans outside a Beijing Court. She began serving in the Shanghai Women’s RTL Camp, but was transferred to Hefei on April 27, 2010, more than 600 kilometers from Shanghai.

Mao’s husband issued a statement today about her plight. For the original Chinese statement, see: http://gb.hrichina.org/public/contents/18988. For the original Chinese version of the redacted authorization document, see: http://gb.hrichina.org/public/contents/18979……. (more details from Human Rights in China)
