ChinaAid recently received another report from inside sources in China that Gao Zhisheng has been severely beaten by authorities. The report stated his current living condition is worse than death and that Gao is crying daily in pain and desperation.
The Chinese government has responded to the increased worldwide pressure for Gao Zhisheng’s release by cutting off communication with two of Gao’s siblings living in China and placing them under police surveillance.
In a November 26th interview with Radio Free Asia, Gao’s brother, Gao Zhiyi, stated, “For every question, there are three unknowns. No one knows anything. They won’t talk to us and they won’t meet with us… Even if Gao Zhisheng had committed a terrible crime, his family would still have the right to know what had happened to him!”
On Saturday, December 5th, Gao’s older brother (Zhiyi) and sister lost all communication contact when their phone lines were disabled, following the release of the RFA interview.
Now more than ever, Gao Zhisheng needs our help!
In a recent visit to Washington, D.C., ChinaAid met with several leading congressmen who have been moved by their constituents (those like you) telling Gao’s story – and they have proposed a Congressional Resolution on Gao Zhisheng’s behalf. Our American leaders have begun to listen, and with more voices, we can make that resolution a reality!
So far, 5,284 people have contacted their local U.S. Representative to speak out on behalf of Gao Zhisheng. Continue to add your voice! We have to keep the momentum going on behalf of this innocent man who himself was a defender of the persecuted.
