Activist: Dozens Are Still Jailed In China Over 1989 Protests

From The Canadian Press:

A human rights activist says at least 60 people remain jailed in China over the 1989 protests by pro-democracy demonstrators centred at Beijing’s Tiananmen Square.

Speaking at the Foreign Correspondents’ Club in Hong Kong on Saturday, John Kamm urged China to release the 60 to 100 Tiananmen protesters before the Beijing Summer Olympics in August.

Kamm is executive director of the Dui Hua Foundation, an advocacy group for political prisoners that conducts research on Chinese prisons.
