The NGO Delegation and their respective organizations have offered their support to SECTION27′s letter of protest against the sentencing of Chinese HIV activist Tian Xi.
[On] March 1st 2011, [a] memorandum was sent to the highest officials in the UN, UNAIDS, WHO and the Chinese government. It is signed by more than 120 organisations, from across the world, including many within China. It is signed by prominent individuals, human rights organisations and trade unions, including the powerful two million member COSATU. Such unity is unprecedented and shows that this issue, as well as the broader issues of freedom and respects for human rights organisations in China, will not go away. Previous letters about Tian Xi to Margaret Chan, the Director General of the WHO, have gone unanswered. We will not allow this one to.
