From Russia to China to Venezuela,

From Russia to China to Venezuela, you are seeing relentless crackdowns, vilifying legitimate dissent as subversive. ...We stand in solidarity with those who are detained at this very moment.  In Venezuela, Leopoldo Lopez; in Burundi, Pierre-Claver Mbonimpa; in Egypt, Ahmed Maher; in China, Liu Xiaobo; and now Ilham Tohti; in Vietnam, Father Ly.  And so many others.  They deserve to be free.  They ought to be released.
