Important statement from more than two thousand Chinese citizens

"…Human rights are not bestowed by a state. Every person is born with
inherent rights to dignity and freedom. The government exists for the
protection of the human rights of its citizens. The exercise of state
power must be authorized by the people. The succession of political
disasters in China’s recent history is a direct consequences of the ruling
regime’s disregard for human rights." (The New York Review of Books,
January 15, 2009, p. 54)
