Hu Jia, HIV/AIDS activist

China

Summary

Prominent HIV/AIDS activist Hu Jia went missing on the morning of 16 February. His current whereabouts are unclear, but it is feared that he is detained by the Chinese authorities. His family have contacted various government departments, including the police, to ask where he is detained, but none has admitted holding him.

Hu Jia reportedly suffers from hepatitis B and, according to those close to him, needs to take medication on a daily basis. He has been detained on numerous occasions in the past in connection with his peaceful human rights activities.

Amnesty International urges the Chinese authorities to clarify Hu Jia’s whereabouts. If detained, he should be given access to appropriate medical treatment and released immediately unless he is charged with a recognisable criminal offence.

 

Background information

Several Chinese activists who have supported or participated in a series of protest hunger-strikes since 4 February have been detained by the police or gone missing. The relay hunger-strike protest was started by prominent defence lawyer Gao Zhisheng, who wished to draw attention to recent beatings and detentions of human rights activists and lawyers who sought to defend them.

Gao began by fasting for 48 hours and was quickly joined by others wishing to show their solidarity, who took turns in fasting. Several participants or supporters, including Hu Jia, have reportedly been detained or gone missing.

Hu Jia was also detained by the police on several occasions in 2004 to stop him from publicly commemorating the 15th anniversary of the 4 June 1989 crackdown. In June 2004, he was held by police in an underground basement. The police reportedly told his family that he would be released immediately if they agreed to sign a statement that Hu Jia had a psychiatric illness. The family refused and Hu Jia was detained for several days.

Hu Jia is the co-founder of the Beijing Aizhixing Institute of Health Education and an outspoken advocate for people with HIV/AIDS; he has publicly criticised the authorities over their treatment of people with AIDS and other issues. He recently resigned from Loving Source, another non-governmental organization he co-founded in 2003 that helps children who have lost parents to AIDS-related illnesses, in order to prevent the authorities from harassing the group. According to Hu Jia, some international donors who helped to fund the operations of the organization withdrew their support to the group under pressure from the Chinese government and its volunteers were intimidated.

健康专业行动——中国病活动家胡佳(感谢另一位不具名的朋友翻译此文)

 

概要

优秀的艾滋病工作活动家胡佳于216日上午失踪。他现在下落不明,但恐怕他已被中国官方拘留。他的家人已经走访了包括公安机关在内的多个政府部门,问询他被拘留在何地,但是没有任何部门承认带走了他。

据报告胡佳患有乙肝,并且据他身边的人说,他需要每天服用药物。在过去,他由于和平捍卫人权的活动多次被拘留。

国际特赦敦促中国政府出面澄清胡佳的下落。如果被拘留,胡佳也有权获得日常的药物和治疗。而且除非有合理的证据显示他有罪,否则应该被立即释放。

 

背景资料:

24日以来,一些支持或参与接力绝食抗议活动的社会活动家陆续被中国警方拘捕或者失踪。接力绝食抗议活动是由优秀的律师高智晟发起的。他希望通过此活动能引起更多对最近因捍卫人权被打或拘留的活动家和律师们的关注。

高开始进行了48小时的绝食行动,并且迅速的得到了其他具有同样愿望的人的响应,更多的人参加了接力绝食活动。包括胡佳在内的一些参与者或者支持者,据报告都已经被拘留或者失踪。

2004年,警方为了阻止胡佳进行6.4运动15周年的公开纪念活动而拘捕了他。20046月,胡佳被警方关押在秘密的地下室里。据报告当时警方告诉他的家人如果他们同意签署一份胡佳曾经有精神病史的证明,他将会被立即释放。但是他的家人拒绝了,胡佳也被关押了好几天。

胡佳是北京爱知行健康教育研究所的共同创始人,并且是为艾滋病人群争取权益的大力倡导者。他曾经就艾滋病治疗和其他问题公开批评官方。他最近为避免政府对爱源汇的骚扰而辞去了爱源汇教育中心的职位,爱源汇是他合作创办的另一个非政府组织,旨在帮助受艾滋影响的儿童。由于胡佳的影响,在中国政府的压力下一些资助这些组织运转的国际捐赠者取消了他们的资助,而志愿者们也受到了威胁。

 

行动建议:

根据下列方针,请写信给以下领导。

l      解释你是一名健康专业人员并且写清楚胡佳于216日上午失踪的事件。

l      表达关心的他下落不明并且说明他因病需要治疗。

l      敦促官方出面澄清它的下落,如果是否被拘留,立即保障他获得适当治疗的权利。

l      敦促当局立即无条件释放胡佳,除非有合理的证据显示他有罪,否则立即释放胡佳。

l      敦促当局确保中国所有的人权捍卫者能够开展合法的和平的人权活动,而不用恐惧当局拘捕、骚扰或者其他的人权侵犯。

l      希望你的信件获得答复。
