Censorship and free speech are under attack in many parts of the world and imprisonment as a result of exercising their right to freedom of expression. Hope she can  break each level of bondage that hinder from freedom.

Education

Gao was born in 1944 in Chongqing. She attended the Language and Literature Department at the Renmin University of China where she majored in Literary Theory.[2]

Career

She began her journalist career in 1979, as a reporter for the China News Service.[1] In 1988, she became deputy chief editor of Economics Weekly, edited by dissident intellectuals.[1] She also worked as a freelance journalist for different newspapers in China and in Hong Kong. In November 1988, she published an article in Hong Kong’s Mirror Monthly, which was described by Beijing's Mayor Chen Xitong as a "political program for turmoil and rebellion". He even branded her as a "people's enemy".[1] She was arrested in 1989, after the Tiananmen Square protests,[3] and released 15 months later because of health problems.[4]

She was arrested again in October 1993, and in November 1994 was sentenced to six years, accused of having "published state secrets".[5][6] In February 1999, she was given parole in poor health.[7][8][9]

Again in 2014, she was arrested, a few weeks ahead of the 25th anniversary of the Tiananmen Square crackdown. The detention of the outspoken 70-year-old journalist was just one of several detentions of government critics over the previous days ahead of the politically sensitive 4 June anniversary.[10] In April 2015, a Beijing court convicted her again of leaking state secrets (such as the "Document Number Nine") and sentenced her to seven years in prison.[11]

Recognitions

In 1995 Gao Yu received the Golden Pen of Freedom. In 1995 Yu won a Courage in Journalism Award from the IWMF (International Women's Media Foundation).[12][13] In March 1999, she became the first journalist to receive the UNESCO/Guillermo Cano World Press Freedom Prize.[14] In 2000 she was named one of International Press Institute's 50 World Press Freedom Heroes of the 20th century.[1]

I can't read Mandarin letters, so if there is any source in english, that would be great  Smiley


I think the communism countries have a democracy themselves, that limit their media to publish the news about government. The news need to be sorted by government, and ask media to tell people about only what government want.

Fears Grow For Gao Yu Amid Huge Political Pressure
2015-07-29 



Fears are growing over the health of veteran Chinese journalist Gao Yu, who is serving a seven-year jail term for “revealing state secrets,” following a recent medical check-up and amid continuing political pressure on her in prison.

Gao, 71, was sentenced by the Beijing No. 3 Intermediate People's Court in April to seven years' imprisonment for "leaking state secrets overseas,” but she has repeatedly denied breaking Chinese law, saying that a televised "confession" on which the prosecution based its case was obtained under duress.

Gao, whose initial appeal was rejected, has come under increasing pressure from police to fire her lawyer, her defense attorney Mo Shaoping told RFA.

“The police are trying to make Gao Yu change her lawyer, but she has refused point blank,” Mo said. “They also want her not to plead not guilty at the second appeal, but to plead mitigating circumstances to achieve a sentence reduction.”

“Gao Yu’s response was that they could say that directly to her attorney, but that she respects the professional opinion of her lawyer.”

Freelance journalist Su Yutong, who has followed Gao’s case closely, said a recent medical check also revealed an enlarged thyroid gland, and doctors have yet to rule out cancer.

“They have to do a biopsy, and she also has … [signs] of atherosclerosis,” Su said. “Her life could be in danger at any time.”



Lawyers, relatives pressured

Everyone connected to Gao is also under huge political pressure, amid a nationwide clampdown on human rights lawyers and their associates, Su said.

“Her lawyers and her relatives are all under pressure to keep quiet … I felt I had to stay in touch with international organizations and overseas governments,” she said.

“This is a terrible situation.”

Meanwhile, online activists who launched a campaign in support of detained freedom of speech advocate Wu Gan, known by his online nickname “The Butcher,” said some of their number have been called in for questioning by police.

More than 10 activists in the central city of Wuhan who wore T-shirts in support of Wu said they were called in by police, including activist Wu Xinfa.

“I told them that I hadn’t broken the law, and how could a bunch of people getting together wearing T-shirts and taking photos break the law.” Wu Xinfa said.

“I think the authorities are a bit too jittery.”

He said police had wanted to know who had made the T-shirts, and who had organized the activity.

“They didn’t say it was against the law; just that it was wrong,” Wu Xinfa said.

“They said some people had posted it online. But if I put it online, why does it matter? It’s not harmful to anyone,” he added.



'Miscarriage of justice'

Wu, 42, known by his online nickname "The Butcher," was initially detained by police during a performance protest he titled "selling my body to raise funds" in  Nanchang city in eastern Jiangxi province.

He was trying to help finance a legal defense for Huang Zhiqiang, Fang Chunping, Cheng Fagen, and Cheng Lihe, who were jailed in Jiangxi's Leping city for robbery, rape, and dismembering a corpse.

The four received suspended death sentences in 2000 that were later commuted to jail terms, but their lawyers and rights activists say their confessions were obtained through torture, and that the men are victims of a miscarriage of justice.

Initially handed a 10-day administrative sentence, which is often given to perceived troublemakers by police without the need for a trial, Wu was then immediately placed under criminal detention on charges of "libel," "picking quarrels and stirring up trouble," and the more serious "incitement to subvert state power."

A May 28 article in the state-run news agency Xinhua linked the claims of libel against Wu to his criticism of the police shooting of a man at a railway station in the northeastern province of Heilongjiang in May.

Rights groups say he has been "subjected to lengthy interrogations for days in a row" since his detention, and his lawyer Yan Xin has repeatedly been denied permission to meet with him, citing "state security" linked to the subversion charge.

Update: China - Health of imprisoned human rights defender Gao Yu continues to deteriorate as authorities pressure her to confess

Imprisoned journalist and human rights defender Ms Gao Yu continues to suffering from deteriorating health and extended periods of questioning.

Further to the Front Line Defenders' Urgent Appeal issued on 7 July 2015 regarding the health of Gao Yu, medical checks carried out on the human rights defender since that time have revealed the growth of a number of abnormal lymph nodes on her neck. Further laboratory tests are needed to determine whether the growths are malignant or benign. Doctors have also told her that she has clogged arteries and is at risk of a heart attack.

Gao Yu is a 71-year-old outspoken journalist and prominent advocate of press freedom. She was detained on 24 April 2014 and later charged with 'leaking state secrets abroad'. It is believed this charge relates to the posting of a Chinese Communist Party circular, referred to as Document No. 9, on websites outside of China. The document contains instructions to party cadres to prevent the spread of certain 'political risks' within China, including 'Western constitutional democracy', 'universal values', 'civil society' and 'the West's idea of journalism'. The person to whom Gao Yu was accused of leaking the document, which had already become widely available online, has denied that it was Gao Yu who leaked it to him.

As reported in the Urgent Appeal, Gao Yu also suffers from a variety of other ailments, including heart problems, high blood pressure, skin allergies and spells of dizziness. Notwithstanding this, she continues to be questioned for lengthy periods each day, with authorities reportedly promising her that she would be released if she admitted her 'guilt'. She refuses to do so. Furthermore, Gao Yu has been subjected to pressure to fire her lawyers, fellow human rights defenders Messrs Shang Baojun and Mo Shaoping. Shang Baojun and Mo Shaoping have stated that they intend to apply for bail for Gao Yu on medical grounds, though previous bail applications on similar grounds were rejected.

Front Line Defenders reiterates its grave concern at the deteriorating health of Gao Yu and calls for her release on bail on medical grounds. Front Line Defenders further reiterates its belief that Gao Yu's detention and the charges brought against her are solely a result of her peaceful and legitimate activities in the defence of human right.
