Urge Obama to Take a Stand Against Chinese Censorship
The Chinese government regularly intimidates, threatens, and detains those who act against the "interest of the state." China has officially imprisoned 3,000 citizens for 'information-related' crimes.
During a visit to China last fall, President Obama criticized Internet censorship. He told students in Shanghai that, "The more freely information flows, the stronger the society becomes, because then citizens of countries around the world can hold their own governments accountable."
Secretary Clinton has called Internet freedom the "Fifth Freedom"—adding to President Franklin Roosevelt's famous four freedoms—and has called for China to stop censoring.
Urge the President to stand up for Chinese citizens' right to free speech at the U.S.-China Summit.
