Chinese AIDS Activist Reportedly Kept From Attending U.N. Conference

New York Times: Chinese AIDS Activist Says She Was Kept From U.N. Conference
“A Chinese AIDS activist says she had to cancel a trip to Geneva this week to attend a United Nations conference on women after local officials seized her passport and forced her to tell conference organizers that she was ‘too sick’ to participate. … The action against Ms. Wang is one of the latest moves by the Chinese authorities to restrict the movement and speech of civil society activists…” (Yu, 10/23).
