Short Summary
According to RDN (1 June 16) and HRCIC (2 June 16), on May 31, 2016, public security officials in Fengtai district, Beijing municipality, took into custody Zhao Changqing, criminally detaining him the next day on suspicion of “picking quarrels and provoking trouble” and holding him at the Fengtai PSB Detention Center. Zhao’s detention was reportedly connected to a Beijing gathering of rights advocates, including Zhang Baocheng, Ma Xinli, Xu Caihong, Liang Taiping, Li Meiqing, and Li Wei, to commemorate the 1989 Tiananmen protests. They reportedly shared a photo of themselves at the gathering, showing two banners calling for commemoration of June Fourth and the release of Guo Feixiong and Yu Shiwen. Zhao previously served 5 years in prison from 2002 to 2007, and 2 years and 6 months, from 2013 to 2015, in connection with his political reform activism (RDN, 16 October 15). He is a signatory of Charter 08 and associated with the New Citizens’ Movement. Authorities reportedly released Zhao on bail on July 7, 2016 (RDN, 7 July 16).
