Renowned Dissident Writer Li Hong Dies, Authorities Prevent Funeral

The Epoch Times - ‎Jan 3, 2011‎: According to what his attorney Li Jianqiang told foreign press, the charges were based on 62 articles he had written, most of which were related to reports about live organ harvesting of Falun Gong practitioners, and his support for human rights attorney Gao Zhisheng’s hunger strike.

“Li Hong, a freelance scholar who does not practice Falun Gong, stood up at the first moment to condemn these crimes committed by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). It is believed that as a scholar in China Li Hong touched the CCP’s sensitive spot: the CCP fears the public’s awareness and condemnation of its live organ harvesting of Falun Gong practitioners,” the New Epoch Weekly editorialized in January 2007.
