Latest Report on the “Save Guo Feixiong: Hunger Strike Relay”

May 6, 2016

Ai Wu, one of the volunteers in the hunger strike campaign, reports that more than 1,000 people have signed a petition for Guo Feixiong’s release so that he may receive proper medical treatment. (To sign, email See details.)

Ai reports that lawyer Sui Muqing, a volunteer, had to withdraw from the hunger strike after he received threats from domestic security police; three hunger strikers were questioned by domestic security officers; and that authorities from Yangchun Prison called Guo’s sister on the phone and accused her of making trouble.

According to Ai Wu, the hunger strikers have two demands: 1) release Guo Feixiong for medical treatment, and 2) make public Guo’s medical records from when he entered both the Tianhe District Detention Center and Yangchun Prison, and also those from during his detention.

Ai said she received information that Guo’s lawyer was given permission to see his client on May 7 for two minutes, during which time Guo was not allowed to speak.

Ai urges volunteers to sustain the hunger strike campaign and appeals for the attention of the international community and human rights organizations on Guo, who has risked his life in the fight for ideals.


After reports surfaced that Guo Fexiong was suffering from serious health issues in prison, a group of well-known Chinese activists initiated a 24-hour hunger strike relay, beginning on May 4. The initiators urge all volunteers to send out a short public statement before their strike and to share their thoughts in writing after they finish their strike.
