CAA President Bob Fu Invited to Speak at Congressional Human Rights Caucus

China Aid Association

Broken Promises:  The 2008 Olympics and the
Human Rights Situation in China

Dear Colleague:
             Please join the Congressional Human Rights Caucus for a briefing on the state of human rights in the People’s Republic of China at 2:15 p.m. on Tuesday, July 22, in 2200 Rayburn HOB.  This event is open to the public and the media.
When the International Olympic Committee (IOC) bestowed the honor of hosting the 2008 Summer Olympics on China seven years ago, it was contingent on the promises of the Chinese government to improve freedom of the press and human rights conditions.  Instead, we have seen the Chinese government unleash a harsh crackdown on political and religious activity that the communist regime perceives to be a threat to stability.   

To discuss this important issue we welcome the following experts:
Douglas Groeb, staff director, Congressional-Executive China Commission
Sophie Richardson, advocacy director, Asia Division, Human Rights Watch
Bob Fu, president, China Aid Association
Alim Seytoff, general director of the Uyghur American Association
Ray Sharpe, Businessman and Chinese Cultural Exchange Expert
Lodi Gyari, TENTATIVE, special envoy to the Dalai Lama

We look forward to your participation in this important briefing.  If you have any questions, please call Elizabeth Hoffman at 225-5136 or Hans Hogrefe at 225-5021. 
Frank R. Wolf                                                                                      James P. McGovern
