another petiton to free Ai Weiwei!

Hi friend,

Have you heard about Ai Weiwei’s detainment? China’s most famous contemporary artist was taken into custody by Chinese officials as part of a wider effort to crackdown on dissent.

Free Ai Weiwei. »

At Care2, we care deeply about freedom of speech, and we work to free those who've been jailed for nothing more than the peaceful expression of this human right.

That's why we're drawing your attention to a petition created by the Bianca Jagger Human Rights Foundation on behalf of Ai Weiwei.

Below is a message from Bianca Jagger herself about the petition:

“We must stand with Ai Weiwei and with all those who have been unjustly detained. Please sign The Bianca Jagger Human Rights Foundation's petition urging the Chinese government to step up to its global leadership position and stop the persecution of political critics and attempts to erase them from the Internet."

"As Ai Weiwei himself expressed, human rights should be universal, and these rights should include the freedom of expression. If enough of us take action now, we can make sure that Chinese voices of freedom are not silent forever.”

Join us in calling on the Chinese government to release Ai Weiwei. »



Thanks for taking action!
