Catholic University hires Chinese human-rights champion

October 03, 2013

Chen Guangcheng, the blind Chinese human-rights activist, has been given a post at the Catholic University of America (CUA) as a distinguished visiting fellow.

Announcing the Chinese activist’s appointment, CUA President John Garvey said that the position will give Chen a platform from which he can continue his denunciation of China’s brutal “one-child” population policy, exposing the prevalence of forced abortion and sterilization.

Chen, who escaped from China last year, will also be working with the Witherspoon Institute at Princeton.

    And Chen still hasn't been invited to the White House - speaks volumes, doesn't it?
