The China Human Rights Lawyers Concern Group has held a silent protest against the arrest of human rights lawyers and activists in the mainland.

They stood in silence outside the Court of Final Appeal for seven minutes and nine seconds to commemorate those arrested in the “709 Crackdown” two years ago.

Emily Lau, a board member of the group, said she understands that many of those arrested have been abused.

“These people have committed no crimes, they are just helping the downtrodden to seek justice,” Lau said.

“We hope the Chinese government would release them and allow them to practice,” she said. “Some of them, even though they’re released, they have got their practice license taken away.”

Lau described the plight of the human rights lawyers in the mainland as “complete lawlessness.”

Human rights organsations in other countries also marked Sunday as China Human Rights Lawyers’ Day.

A powerful poster for detained Chinese human rights lawyers, designed by a Chinese student in Australia. July 9 is the 2nd anniversary of Beijing’s sweeping crackdown of hundreds of lawyers in 2015.

Two years ago, China arrested these human rights lawyers with ridiculous reasons. I designed this poster via modifying the film still of Korean movie “The Attorney”. Two years later, I hope more people can remember their names and stand up for them. I also believe history will help us to “draw” their image.

Saudi Arabia: Le Canada mobilisé en faveur du blogueur séoudien Raif Badawi

le 8 juillet, 2017

«Circulez il n’y a rien à voir » c’est en substance ce que vient de déclarer à Ottawa l’Ambassadeur d’Arabie Saoudite à propos du dossier du blogueur saoudien Raif Badawi. La femme de ce dernier et ses trois enfants trois enfants ont obtenu l’asile politique au Canada et résident à Sherbrooke au Québec, a été condamné par la justice saoudienne en 2012. 10 ans de prison, 1000 coups de fouet et près de 200 000 € d’amende pour avoir réclamé sur son blog une plus grande tolérance envers les non musulmans et une plus grande ouverture d’esprit dans le royaume. Le jugement précisait : apostasie et insulte à l’islam.

Mobilisation internationale

La première séance de flagellation a eu lieu en public devant une mosquée de Djeddah. Par la suite les autres séances ont été interrompues pour « raison médicale » à la suite d’une intense mobilisation internationale et de l’ONU. L’impression générale était que le dossier Badawi était gelé et que l’on attendait à Ryad un moment propice pour le libérer. Pourtant, selon des indications déjà ancienne, on a prêté au Royaume saoudien l’intention d’entreprendre une nouvelle action en justice pour apostasie avec à la clef la possibilité d’une condamnation à mort. Et puis de nouveau le silence…

Depuis le début de sa détention et en dehors de l’intervention des états, le blogueur saoudien a reçu de très nombreux prix récompensant les défenseurs des droits de l’homme notamment le prix Sakharov en 2015. Il a été également proposé la même année pour le prix Nobel de la Paix.L’avocat de Raif Badawi, Waleed Abu al-Khair, militant des droits de l’homme également, a pour l’occasion écopé de 15 ans de prison à son tour.

China/USA: Statement of New York City Bar Association Marking “709 Crackdown” on Chinese Human Rights Defenders

July 8, 2017

New York City Bar

Sunday, July 9, 2017 marks the first-ever international China Human Rights Lawyers Day and the second anniversary of the beginning of President Xi Jinping’s infamous “709 Crackdown,” a period of intimidation, arrest, adetention, and enforced disappearance of an unprecedented number of Chinese lawyers, lawyers’ family members, support staff, and human rights and legal activists.[1] The Association has closely monitored relevant developments in China, and previously issued a call to release lawyers caught up in the early throes of the “709 Crackdown”.[2] In all, the “709 Crackdown” ensnared more than 320 human rights lawyers and activists throughout China, and continues to this day – a methodical, systematic campaign by the Chinese state to control and silence lawyers and others who advocate for politically-sensitive clients and causes.[3]

In what amounts to nothing less than a “war on law” that is unprecedented in its scale and severity, Chinese human rights lawyers and activists have been summoned for questioning, kidnapped by secret police, detained incommunicado in “black jails” and other prisons, humiliated, and subjected to marathon interrogation sessions and other forms of sadistic psychological and physical torture, including sleep deprivation, forced medication (often with grave consequences for mental and physical health), brutal beatings, electric shocks, prolonged submersion in water, death threats, and months of solitary confinement.[4]

Many of these human rights lawyers and activists have been held for months (even years) without being charged and with no access to defense counsel.
