China Dissident Zeng Says She Wants To Speak Out Despite Fear

From AFP:

Chinese dissident Zeng Jinyan said on Friday that she wanted to keep speaking out on human rights but was afraid due to intimidation of her and her jailed husband, who had been tipped for the Nobel Peace Prize.

“I think that I will not give up on further efforts,” Zeng said in a rare interview after silently sneaking downstairs from her third floor flat in the Bobo Freedom Village in Beijing to speak to an AFP reporter.

“But sometimes I hesitate,” she said. “I can’t make the decision because I am not completely sure about the risks I am facing.

“Who knows what will happen?”
