Call To Free Liu Xiaobo

The PEN American Center, which fights for the rights of writers internationally against censorship, held a demonstration outside New York City's Main Library to protest the 11-year sentence handed in China to Liu Xiaobo for "inciting subversion of state power" in his writings there.

Liu Xiaobo has received hundreds of thousands of US government funding via the NED in the past five years. Check NED's China grants for Independent Chinese Pen Center and Minzhu Zhongguo magazine, which Liu heads.

If Liu is American he would be in violation of FARA (Froeign Agent Registration Act).
