Urgent Action update: Labour activists held in secret detention
Wei Zhili and Ke Chengbing, both editors of labour rights news and advocacy website “New Generation” (xinshengdai), have been held in incommunicado detention since March 2019. Their detention comes amid a crackdown across China on students and activists advocating for worker’s’ rights. Denied access to a lawyer of their choice, they are at grave risk of torture and other ill-treatment.
