Canadian Embassy Beijing Blog: Remember Liu Xiaobo and Charter ’08

Canadian Embassy Beijing microblog social media posting to December 18th post to Chinese followers:

“This month we celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. But that wasn’t the only important human rights documents issued on December 10th. There was another one that was issued ten years ago. It was drafted by a famous Chinese writer, a writer who later won the Nobel Prize. Can you guess who that was?
