Liu salutes Tiananmen victims

The US-based group Human Rights in China (HRIC) quoted Liu Xiaobo’s wife Liu Xia, and said she had been placed under house arrest by authorities in Beijing shortly after speaking to her husband.

“This award is for the lost souls of June Fourth,” the group quoted Liu Xiaobo as telling his wife, referring to the 1989 crackdown by the Chinese government on student protesters.

“He said it was due to their non-violent spirit in giving their lives for peace, freedom, and democracy,” Liu Xia said.
