True patriotism hates injustice!!!

It has proven that "True patriotism hates injustice in its own land more than anywhere else." as said by Clarence Darrow 91857-1938), an American lawyer and leading member of the American Civil Liberties Union

Liu Xiaobo (aged 57),  a Chinese literary critic, writer, professor, political commentator  and human rights activist who called for political reforms and the end of communist single-party rule said that

"Hatred is corrosive of a person's wisdom and conscience; the mentality of enmity can poison a nation's spirit, instigate brutal life and death struggles, destroy a society's tolerance and humanity, and block a nation's progress to freedom and democracy."

He fought for his people to provide liberty and establish democracy. He was awarded Nobel Peace Prize in 2010.

He is currently incarcerated as a political prisoner in Jinzhou, Liaoning.

During his fourth prison term, he was awarded the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize for "his long and non-violent struggle for fundamental human rights in China."

He is the first Chinese citizen to be awarded a Nobel Prize of any kind while residing in China. Liu is the third person to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize while in prison or detention, after Germany's Carl von Ossietzky (1935) and Burma's Aung San Suu Kyi (1991).
