Web petition organised against Tiananmen Sq outrage

Global petition recalls events of 10 years ago

A group of campaigners protesting against the human rights outrages in Red China 10 years ago, have organised a petition on the WWW. The petition is here, in multilingual versions. The petition, addressed to President Jiang Zemin, People's Republic of China; Kofi Annan, Secretary General of the United Nations, and Mary Robinson, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, calls for a re-evaluation of the official verdict on the protests, which happened on June 4th, 1989, and a release of prisoners of conscience. It also calls on Red China to show its concern for human rights, as well as releasing prisoners of conscience imprisoned for their views. The petition comes in the wake of a decision by US president Bill Clinton earlier in the week to defer Red China's entry into the World Trade Organisation. ®
