"I would like to give thanks to Hong Kong", “As long as there is one press that is willing to report on China’s human rights, one reporter that's willing to write, one reader that's willing to read, I will continue to report. I have to thank Hong Kong for the people here who understand that they cannot turn away when there is suffering.”ZHAO Sile is a freelance writer. Her "Series: The Fate of Chinese Rights NGOs ( 1/ 2 / 3 )" was awarded the 20th Human Rights Press Awards Chinese-language News & Features Grand Prize; another article “Kou Yanding: 128 Days of Hell and 100 Kilometers of Salvation” was also awarded the Chinese-language Features Merit.

Ever since 2015, human rights lawyers, activists, and Rights NGOs in China have been suppressed by the Chinese government. One year has passed, how the situation is now? We are glad to have Zhao to share her observations.
