London Memorial for Liu Xiaobo three weeks after his passing

August 2 will be the 21st day since the passing of Liu Xiaobo, the first Nobel Peace Prize winner to die in state custody since Nazi Germany.

Liu Xiaobo was sentenced to 11 years in prison for co-drafting and promoting Charter 08, a manifesto calling for political transformation in China. Liu Xiaobo's wife, the poet Liu Xia, has been 'disappeared' since Liu Xiaobo's funeral.

Join us to remember Liu Xiaobo and urge China to free Liu Xia.
