Tell Secretary Hillary Clinton to Stand with Chen Guangcheng and His Family

Chinese lawyer Chen Guangcheng risked everything when he escaped house arrest and fled to the American embassy in Beijing. Chen is safe now, living and studying in New York, but he fears for his family in China—especially his nephew, Kegui.

Kegui defended himself and his family with a knife from a group of thugs who broke into their house and attacked them. He injured one of the attackers and now he is in jail, unjustly charged with attempted homicide, and possibly tortured. Chinese officials won’t let him talk to his family or his lawyers.

Tell Secretary Clinton to press the Chinese government to provide Kegui access to his lawyers and family.
