Protest for Liu Xiaobo in Oslo

Photograph of an image of Liu Xiaobo projected onto buildings in Oslo, Norway, above protestors campaigning for his freedom during the Nobel Prize Ceremony held at the Oslo City Hall on 10 December 2010. Liu Xiaobo, co-founder and president of the Independent Chinese Centre (2003-07), was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2010 “for his long and non-violent struggle for fundamental human rights in China”. Since he was imprisoned in Jinzhou prison in North East China at the time, and was thus prevented from attending the event in person, he was represented at the ceremony by an Empty Chair. This photograph was taken and contributed by Marian Botsford Fraser, president of the Canadian Centre (1997-99) and chair of PEN International’s Writers in Prison Committee (2009-12).

Protesta para Liu Xiaobo en Oslo

Fotografía de un retrato de Liu Xiaobo proyectado en unos edificios de Oslo, Noruega, sobre los manifestantes pidiendo su libertad durante la ceremonia de los Premios Nobel, en el Ayuntamiento de Oslo, el 10 de diciembre de 2010. Liu Xiaobo, cofundador y presidente del Centro Chino Independiente (2003-07), recibió el Premio Nobel por la Paz en 2010 «por su larga y no-violenta lucha por los derechos humanos fundamentales en China». Encarcelado en la prisión de Jinzhou, en el noreste de China, no pudo asistir a la ceremonia, por lo que fue representado por una Silla Vacía. Esta fotografía fue tomada y cedida por Marian Botsford Fraser, presidenta del Centro Canadiense (1997-99) y presidenta del Comité de Escritores en Prisión (2009-12).
