ICC Note: Two-time Nobel Peace Prize nominee and human rights lawyer Gao Zhisheng, who was detained and tortured by the Chinese Communist party, exposes China’s catastrophic corruption. Mr. Gao’s law license was revoked in 2005 on account of his human rights work. While in prison, Mr. Gao was tortured on multiple occasions. Following his release from a three-year prison sentence, Mr. Gao secretly wrote a book entitled “Unwavering Convictions”. The book will give more insights on religious persecution, human rights, and the overall situation in China in hope to illuminate government’s corrupt nature.

 10/17/2017 China  (Standard News Wire) – Under the watchful eye of Chinese government minders, a tortured human rights lawyer and two-time Nobel Peace Prize nominee secretly penned an incendiary commentary detailing the ruinous nature of the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) rule during 2016. The piece was recently released in English, translated and edited by ChinaAid, the Human Rights Foundation, and Christian Solidarity Worldwide.

Written by Gao Zhisheng, a human rights lawyer and Nobel Peace Prize nominee, in March, the report’s 14 sections describe the CCP’s suppression of political rights, including its insistence on persecuting peaceful religious groups; its strict crackdown on freedom of speech, ideas, and information; its blatant violation of the rights of Tibetan and Uyghur people; and its forced confiscation of private property, amongst other things. Of particular concern is the corruption of China’s education system, which Gao says “crystalizes” the intellects of children in order to preserve devotion to the CCP.
