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.
