Citizens Honor Released Petitioner with Flowers

January 10, 2011

On January 10, 2011, Shen Guodong (沈果东), a petitioner from Wuxi, Jiangsu Province, was released after a 10-month detention for “obstructing official business.” Shen had petitioned on behalf of his family and others against forced demolition of their homes. Nearly a hundred people came in a dozen or so vehicles to greet him. They presented him with flowers, released a dove of peace in front of the Wuxi Municipal Detention Center where he was held, and pinned a big red paper flower on him to honor him. His family's story is available on the Chinese version of this article.
