Further information: China: Fears grow for detained labour activists

, Index number: ASA 17/3089/2015

Seven labour activists could be facing up to 15 years imprisonment solely as a result of their activities defending labour rights in China. They have not been granted access to their lawyers, putting them at increased risk of torture and other ill-treatment. Their continued detention forms part of a coordinated crackdown on the labour movement in Guangdong Province, at a time of escalating industrial tensions in the region.
