[期待民主中国:2398] Please publish or share the PRESS RELEASE on Liu Xiaobo from Ilham Tohti Initiative!

Press Release
Ilham Tohti Initiative
Karlsfeld, Germany

July 13, 2017

The Ilham Tohti Initiative expresses its deep sorrow upon the death of Liu Xiaobo. He will forever stand as a symbol both of a wide ranging struggler for human rights and democracy. Mr. Liu dedicated his life to the betterment of his country and humankind, and to the pursuit of jusitce and liberty.
Mr. Liu, the courageous Chinese dissident and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, played an instrumental role during the Tiananmen Square protests in 1989 and worked for years speaking and writing publicly about the importance of democracy.
His case appropriately embodies China's continued efforts to silence peaceful critics, intimidate dissidents and stifle a much needed conversation about what approach will truly benefit Chinese, Uyghurs, Tibetans and other etnicities in China.
We believe the Chinese Communist regime is responsible for Liu Xiaobo's
death because it never allowed him early diagnosis and proper medical treatment and denied his wish to seek medical treatment abroad.

We offer our deepest condolences to Liu Xiaobo's devoted wife Liu Xia and all of his loved ones.
