If you follow my blog, you know that I am outraged at the jailing of Nobel Peace Prize laureate Dr. Liu Xiaobo.
In February of 2016, the US Senate unanimously passed my bill to rename the street in front of the Chinese embassy in Washington after Dr. Liu Xiaobo, the Nobel Peace Prize laureate who has been imprisoned for eight years by the Chinese government.
In the 1980s, President Ronald Reagan stood up and renamed the street in front of the Soviet embassy ‘Sakharov Plaza’ after another wrongly imprisoned Nobel laureate.
Yet in the case of Dr. Liu Xiaobo President Obama threatened to veto the Senate’s bill.
The American people and our government need to take a stand against the Chinese government and its oppression of simple human rights by supporting the bill to rename the street in front of the Chinese embassy in Washington after Dr. Liu Xiaobo
