9 years ago


February 4th - 365 Days of Torture

Last year, Gao Zhisheng was a world-renowned Chinese Christian attorney, a champion of human rights and equality before the law.

Last year, Gao Zhisheng was a Nobel Peace Prize 2008 nominee, a hero of the Chinese people.

Last year, Gao Zhisheng fought for freedom for religious minorities, risking everything to defend the persecuted.

Last year, Gao Zhisheng shared the truth of his torture at the hands of the Chinese government.

Last year, Gao Zhisheng could see, hear, and touch his family, loving them with faith and courage.

Then last year, on February 4th, 2009, everything changed.

Today, Gao Zhisheng is denied the basic human rights he fought for every day on behalf of his fellow countrymen.

Today, Gao Zhisheng is hidden from the world by the Chinese government, masked by a shroud of secrecy and doubt.

Today, Gao's wife and children face devastating separation, suffering from the pain of loss and uncertainty.

Today, Gao suffers silent torture, never knowing if he will see his loved ones again.

Today, is the day to make the truth known.

Today, on February 4, 2010, we refuse to let Gao Zhisheng be forgotten, and we challenge the Chinese government to answer our cry: "Where is Gao Zhisheng?"
