Hao Wu still held by state and Press Freedom in India

An update on Hao Wu.

An online petition has been started. From Global Voices

Rebecca launched the letter writing campaign earlier today, and we’re encouraging readers to write to their national governments, to the Chinese ambassadors in their nation, to their local newspapers, and to Chinese President Hu Jintao. Her post offers key pieces of information to include in letters or op-eds as well some useful addresses.

We’ve also launched an online petition, demanding that President Hu Jintao release Hao immediately.

Of course it would appear that this doesn’t affect those in India. The Reporters Without Borders report for 2005 indicates otherwise. The Worldwide Press Freedom Index for 2005 places India at 106 out of a total 167 countries ranked. Press freedom cannot be guaranteed in a country where the Freedom of Expression is routinely kicked out of perspective.

    Grrrr….the Chinese government. The only country that can put some fear into them looks the other way, of course.

  2. A pox on the chinese govt.
    Dang Neha, Im sorry if I sound horribly acerbic, but, but…the inanity of their actions boggles my mind.
