Amnesty Launches Chinese-Language Website
Though its websites have long been blocked in China, independent human rights organization Amnesty International has launched a new Chinese-language website in order to reach a wider audience. South China Morning Post’s Patrick Boehler reports:
“This is a benchmark in the organisation’s ongoing efforts to engage Chinese-speaking human rights activists and supporters around the world,” Amnesty’s East Asia head Roseann Rife said.
“The importance of distributing more human rights information in the Chinese language reflects China’s growing influence throughout the world,” she said.
The new website will feature translations in simplified Chinese of Amnesty’s reports and annual documents, and a Chinese-language blog. [Source]
