Further information: China: Two Chinese labour activists released
Two Chinese labour activists have been released, but three remain in detention, solely as a result of their legitimate activities defending workers’ rights in Guangdong province, south-east China. These releases suggest that the attention on their situation may be having an influence, but more appeals are needed for those still behind bars.
