"Let Freedom Ring for Chinese, Tibetans, Uyghurs, Mongols and Taiwanese"

Rally Urging President Obama to Press Chinese President Xi Jinping on human rights in China, September 25, 11 am – 1 pm, near the White House

Initiatives for China (IFC) Media contact: Yang Jianli, President & Founder of IFC

As President Obama hosts Chinese President Xi Jinping for a State visit, a coalition of human rights groups will hold a rally near the White House to highlight China’s dismal human rights record and to urge President Obama to send a strong public message to the Chinese leadership that human rights abuses in China must end.

Since Xi Jinping became the top leader of China, Chinese Christians, writers, human rights lawyers, Tibetans, Uyghurs, Mongols and many other communities have suffered increased persecution and an unrelenting assault on their basic human rights.

Taiwanese Americans ask that President Obama impress upon Xi that China dismantle its 1,600 missiles targeted at Taiwan and renounce the use of force against Taiwan. This is the best way to maintain peace and stability in Asia and is consistent with the 1979 Taiwan Relations Act.

Join us to urge President Obama to publicly raise human rights issues, including the plight of Tibet, in his discussions with President Xi.

What: Rally Urging President Obama to Raise Human Rights with Chinese President Xi Jinping

When: September 25, 2015 from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm.
