China: Free human rights activist Yang Chunlin

Human rights activist Yang Chunlin, who has been detained for nearly 8 months, went on trial on 19 February for his involvement in collecting signatures for a petition entitled "We Want Human Rights, not the Olympics".
During his five and a half hour trial, he was forced to sit on a metal chair with a ring around the bottom which was used to lock his legs in place and fix his sitting position. He was unable to stretch, move or stand up throughout
Appeal to the Chinese authorities to release Yang Chunlin
