All lawyers and friends of Chen Guangcheng related to International Press Conference are under house arrest or have no freedom today. We cancel the press conference. Sorry for changing so many times.
This afternoon, around 7:00pm, Chen Guangcheng’s mother and 3-year old child, who come to Beijing for the Press Conference, were kidnapped downstairs the home of Guangcheng’s friend in Beijing by about 10 plainclothesmen from Shandong. The Beijing policemen and the gate guard do nothing, in other words, assisting the kidnapping.
We really appreciate your work on rescuing Chen Guangcheng and his family.
