International Women’s Day: PEN protests the persecution of three courageous writers

If you wish to write to the Chinese authorities: 

  • Calling for her immediate and unconditional release if, as reported, she is being persecuted for her legitimate professional activities;
  • Reminding the Chinese authorities that Article 35 of the Constitution of the People’s Republic of China provides for freedom of speech and that as a signatory to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, which provides for freedom of legitimate expression, the right not to be arbitrarily detained and the right to a fair trial, they are obliged to ‘refrain from acts that would defeat or undermine the treaty’s objective and purpose.’
