   Announcement Regarding the Annual ‘China Human Rights Lawyers Day’ Event
   June 24, 2018

   China’s community of human rights lawyers have made enormous sacrifices to defend the rights and freedoms of citizens and promote China’s progress toward the rule-of-law and democracy. As representatives of China’s wider community of lawyers, human rights lawyers have, since the beginning of the rights defense movement in early 2000s, been the constant target of severe government repression. This has included, without letup, cancellation of legal licenses, being stalked, being threatened, being publicly defamed, being kidnapped, being secretly disappeared, and being subject to forced labor, long-term incarceration, or torture.
   On July 9, 2017, marking the second anniversary of the Communist Party’s most brutal persecution of human rights lawyers with the ‘709 incident,’ 14 human rights organizations held an ‘Inaugural China Human Rights Lawyers’ Day’ in Washington, D.C. Through speeches, a photographic exhibition, a documentary, a march, and a live broadcast online, we showed to the world the bearing and courage of China’s rights defense lawyers, and brought their plight and peril to the attention to the wider world.
   A year has passed, and Zhou Shifeng (周世鋒), Jiang Tianyong (江天勇), Tang Jingling (唐荊陵), Xia Lin (夏霖), and others are still imprisoned. Yu Wensheng (余文生) and Li Yuhan (李昱函), among others, have been newly arrested and jailed. Wang Quanzhang (王全璋) remains disappeared, with no news of his whereabouts or condition for three years now. Gao Zhisheng (高智晟) has once again been disappeared, now for 11 months. Over 20 lawyers have had their licenses cancelled or face disbarment. Tragically, two outstanding rights defense lawyers, Li Subin (李蘇濱) and Li Baiguang (李柏光), have left us forever.
   The persecution continues, and human rights defenders continue to hold their ground and resist. This year we hold in New York a second ‘China Human Rights Lawyers’ Day,’ and also to establish a ‘709 Rights Defense Lawyer Award.’ The date of July 9 now symbolizes the glorious and thorny road that China’s human rights lawyers walk. Every July 9, we — coming from around the world, including Chinese rights defenders and those who care deeply about the struggle for a free and democratic China — will mark ‘China Human Rights Lawyers’ Day’ and support one other through this dark time.
   We firmly believe that one day in the future we will be marking the occasion of July 9 in a free China with the rule of law.
   Time: July 8, 2018 2:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. EDT
   Location: Bateman Room, Fordham Law School (2nd floor of 150 West 62nd,New York)
