Concerned Lawyers Form Chinese Rights Defense Association to Protect Petitioners

Posted by Author on July 1, 2010

China Aid, June 30, 2010 –

BEIJING— From Shanghai to Beijing, rights defense lawyers have witnessed the harassment of petitioners, Chinese citizens who bring community concerns of the people to their designated higher authorities in government. Crackdown methods including detention, interrogation, restricted travel, physical abuse, and in extreme cases Re-Education through Labor, continue to be used by the government to deter petitioners from lodging their formal complaints and repress potential social instability.

In response, a group of Chinese human rights lawyers have joined together to form the Chinese Petitioner Rights Defense Association, a group of legal defenders who are committed to protecting the rights of petitioners, and promoting rule of law throughout China. They released the following statement on June 29, 2010:

Public notice from Petitioners’ Rights Attorneys

To protect the rights and freedom of petitioners, to realize the love and righteousness in China, and to promote the rule of law in China, we hereby establish Petitioners’ Rights Attorneys (Chinese Petitioners’ Rights Defense Association).  We expect the enthusiastic support and active participation from our mentors and friends in the legal community.  The following is the list of names of members of Petitioners’ Rights Attorneys (Arranged in the alphabetical order of the first initial of their last names in Pinyin):
