LATEST INFORMATION ON ZHOU ZHIRONG:
On June 8, Zhou Zhirong, friend and fellow protestor with Li Wangyang (see below) has been arrested.
Zhou has initiated the "Truth Investigation Committee for the 'Suicide' of Li Wangyang".
A number of Li's relatives and friends are now in house arrest.
Li's attorney is now incommunicado and feared to be in house arrest as well.
INFORMATION ON LI WANGYANG:
Li Wangyang ,Chinese dissident labor rights activist, Chairman of the Shaoyang Workers Autonomous Federation branch, was jailed on June 9th 1989 for "counterrevolutionary propaganda and incitement", after China's 1989 democracy protests in Tiananmen Square. He had been jailed for 22 years and released last year but kept under 24 hours surveillance in the hospital.
He became blind and deaf as a result of torture during his incarceration and he suffered from many ailments and disease.
On June 2, an interview of him was shown on Hong Kong television. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lClvj9J5m7E&feature=share
On June 6, he was found hanged in his hospital room.
In checking out the video link above, one will question how anyone who can barely support himself physically could have the strength to hang himself. Besides, he needed to have extraordinary mental strength to survive these years of torture. One begs the question of "suicide" as claimed by the authorities of his death.
One must also remember that after Chen Guangcheng released a video of his illegal house arrest, he and his wife were severely beaten with the security bureau thugs wrapping a blanket around his wife to beat her.
