Liu Xiaobo’s Nobel Prize ceremony

Photograph of Salil Shetty, on the left, Secretary General of Amnesty International (2010-18), and John Ralston Saul, on the right, president of PEN International (2009-15) at the Nobel Prize awards ceremony held at Oslo City Hall in Norway on 10 December 2010. A photograph of Liu Xiaobo, co-founder and president (2003-07) of the Independent Chinese Centre, and the recipient of that year’s Nobel Peace Prize, can be seen behind hanging them. When awarded this prize Xiaobo was imprisoned in Jinzhou prison in North East China, and was thus represented at the ceremony by an empty chair. Xiaobo was bestowed the award “for his long and non-violent struggle for fundamental human rights in China”.

Ceremonia del Premio Nobel a Liu Xiaobo

Fotografía de Salil Shetty, izquierda, secretario general de Amnistía Internacional (2010-18), y John Ralston Saul, derecha presidente de PEN Internacional (2009-15) en la ceremonia de los Premios Nobel en el Ayntamiento de Oslo, Noruega, el 10 de diciembre de 2010. Una fotografía de Liu Xiaobo, cofundador y presidente del Centro Chino Independiente (2003-07), y ganador del Premio Nobel de la Paz aquél año, puede verse colgada detrás de ellos. Cuando se le otorgó el Premio, Xiaobo estaba encarcelado en la prisión Jinzhou del Noreste de China, por lo que en la ceremonia se le representó con una silla vacía. Recibió el Nobel «por su larga y no-violenta lucha por los derechos humanos fundamentales en China».
