Liu Xiaobo

Liu Xiaobo has just been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, despite
threats rom the Chinese government to the Norwegian government. I am
pleased to have played a minor part in making Liu Xiaobo known in the
West. I translated a couple of articles of Liu Xiaobo's published in
the most prominent Chinese human rights journal in the West, Human
Rights in China (New York):

"Beijing's Human Rights Exhibition" (2007)
www.hrichina.org/public/PDFs/CRF.1.2007/CRF-2007-1_Exhibition.pdf

"The Negative Effects of the Rise of Dictatorship on World
Democratization" (2006)
www.hrichina.org/public/contents/article?revision_id=174004&item_id=173675

Several other dissidents whose articles I've translated for Human Rights
in China remain in prison, under house arrest, or subject to daily
harassment from the authorities in China.
