The Activist and the Police Chief: Huang Qi’s Story

Huang Qi was a trailblazer among Chinese rights activists in using the
Internet to find loved ones kidnapped by human traffickers or otherwise
unaccounted for. Although he was initially lionized in China’s official
media, he later spent five years in prison for “incitement to subversion”
and was awarded the 2004 Internet Freedom Prize by Paris-based Reporters
Sans Frontieres. “I believe that in a future China things won’t be this way.
I think that those of us who blaze a trail have to pay this sort of price ,”
he told RFA’s Mandarin service in a in-depth interview with Jill Ku. “We
approach things entirely from the point of view of human rights, and our
work has also included protecting the rights of members of the Chinese
Communist Party.”
