Amnesty are championing her cause to try to apply pressure to the Chinese government. Please sign. (It's Australian Amnesty so your phone no. and postcode prob. won't work, but the email addy is sufficient by itself.)

The bastard had actually cut her finger off. She'd appealed to the police for help - they'd done nothing whatsoever.

Bump.

Signed and shared. I'd imagine China intends to take shag all notice of international (or local) pressure but that doesn't mean we shouldn't try. Thinking of Li Yan and her family.

Done. Does anyone know if these amnesty campaigns ever work?
I have signed a couple of these in the past which were unfortunately unsuccessful sad

Bumping

queef it depends what you mean by work-sometimes the victim doesn't get helped but its still better that the authorities know that we're watching and writing for all those who come after her, until such things are stopped.

a wee bump.

According to BBC Radio4 she asked and asked and asked for help and got none. Killed him by accident defending herself and is now sentenced to death and the appeal did not overturn the decision.

Sign, sign, sign sad

Just Another bump please sign!

Doesn't work for me (invalid postcode)?

Goldensunnydays81 Sat 02-Feb-13 09:52:39

I didn't put the postcode in and it worked

Ah, that did it, thanks Golden.

Horrifying - the poor woman.
Would love to sign but Amnesty's website has a fault and rejects my phone number and postcode, even though both are accurate. I've tried mobile and landline and both get rejected.

Thanks Golden, it worked when I took out postcode and phone number.

Lesbeadiva Sat 02-Feb-13 10:05:15

Edam I just put my name and email in. You do not need to enter a phone number, mine went through. Poor woman.

Uppermid Sat 02-Feb-13 10:08:37

I took out postcode and added +44 to my phone number to show in uk.
