The wife of Gao Zhisheng, a prominent human rights lawyer, escaped China with their two children to deny the authorities leverage against her husband.
Very interesting article. One hears so much about China's economic progress, that one forgets it still has a long way to go...I've never understood why Christian and Falun Gong groups are suppressed in China... Does the communist party feel these small groups will somehow turn the nation against them? In all likelihood, they'll hallow out their own principles as they continue to follow free market principles...for good or for bad, maybe that will lighten their stance on these groups. That said, I know little of these groups. Maybe they are cults which profess harmful things... This would be something worthy of further research on our part.
