Chairs Announce Press Conference on Fifth Anniversary of Liu Xiaobo Receiving the Nobel Peace Prize
FIFTH ANNIVERSARY OF LIU XIAOBO RECEIVING THE NOBEL PEACE PRIZE
WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 9, 2015
2255 Rayburn House Office Building
On the eve of Human Rights Day, the Congressional-Executive Commission on China (CECC) will host a press conference to commemorate the fifth Anniversary of Liu Xiaobo receiving the Nobel Peace Prize.
Speakers will include Members of Congress and invited activists working for human rights in China.
The continued imprisonment of China’s most prominent human rights and democracy advocate, and the ongoing detention of his wife Liu Xia, remain a critical tension in U.S.-China relations and a major factor defining global perceptions of the Chinese government’s willingness to protect human rights and establish the rule of law.
Speakers will discuss the significance of Liu Xiaobo and other prominent dissident cases and discuss initiatives to address human rights concerns within U.S.-China relations.
