Members of Congress, human rights activists, and Chinese dissidents called on the Trump administration and other world leaders to impose new sanctions on Chinese officials responsible for the arrest, imprisonment, and death this week of Liu Xiaobo, China's most famous political prisoner.
Rep. Chris Smith (R., N.J.), a leading human rights advocate in Congress, also said U.S. universities with campuses or programs in China, such as New York University, should face tough questions from Congress about what they are doing on their American campuses to raise awareness of Xiaobo's legacy of standing up for democratic reform and human rights and the decades of imprisonment he faced because of it.
"I think this needs to be pivot to human rights in his legacy because there are still others suffering greatly [in China's prisons]," Smith said Thursday. "There has to be a response to this the likes to which we've never seen before."
