Gao Zhisheng To Serve Three Year Prison Sentence

The high-profile and galvanizing Chinese human rights figure Gao Zhisheng, held by Chinese security forces almost continually since late 2006, has been officially sentenced to prison for three years. You can read the full story here at The Epoch Times:

I had the honour of designing Gao’s book ‘A China More Just’, the cover of which you can see above. It tells of his remarkable life;¬†born and raised in a cave with only the stars to tell time, Gao Zhisheng rose from poverty to become China’s most important lawyer who took on the CCP fighting for the rights of Chinese citizens.

You can purchase his book on Amazon:

Here’s a video on youtube with my colleague Sarah Cook discussing the release of his book on NTD’s ‘Asia Talk’ program:
