Bloggers for Chen

This petition is doing the rounds at the moment and I would urge readers to take a moment to sign it. I have blogged about Chen before and feel such admiration for a man who was prepared to stand up to the might of the Chinese authorities on behalf of thousands of women who have been abused in the name of population control. Chen has now been incarcerated in terrible conditions for over 100 days and was denied early release on medical grounds even though he is said to be in very poor health. Please show your support for this courageous man.
