As I write this, the unjustly imprisoned are suffering behind bars.
Right now, a Tibetan filmmaker — Dhondup Wangchen — is languishing in a Chinese prison simply because he made a film that explores the views of Tibetan people toward the Beijing Olympics and the Dalai Lama.
After a secret trial, he was sentenced to six years' imprisonment for "subversion of state power" and has reportedly been tortured.
Amnesty is pressuring the Chinese government to release Wangchen, investigate the allegations of torture to bring those responsible to justice.
