CRDgrab2From Radio Free Asia: “Chinese Rights Defenders (CRD), a network of Chinese citizens who are committed to safeguarding rights and their international volunteer supporters, is assisting in a petition campaign that seeks to bring to justice those responsible,” the group said in a statement Tuesday.

It also called on the international community to support the petition, and increase pressure on the Chinese government to do something about China’s appalling mine safety record.

….. The signature campaign was launched in Beijing on Dec. 1. The CRD said it had obtained signatures from “dozens of Chinese citizens” so far. Among them were Beijing-based dissident , on-line activist Du Daobin, and legal scholar Yu Meisun, it said.”
