    Your contributions help prevent the torture of prisoners of conscience like prominent lawyer Gao Zhisheng.

    "[The family of the Gao Zhisheng was granted a second prison visit] ...without the international community’s concerns and the effort and support from the membership of Amnesty International, for which my family and I feel most grateful. I hope Amnesty International will continue to promote this activity, allowing more people to come to know my husband’s situation, until he gains his freedom."

    —Geng Hem, wife of Gao Zhisheng.
