Women Lawyers' Proposal for an Online Performance Art Protest

April 3, 2014

Women human rights defenders in China have launched an online appeal asking women lawyers to protest the thug-like treatment of fellow lawyer Wang Shengsheng (王胜生) in Jiansanjiang by posing for photos with black hoods over their heads, with hands bound, and wearing placards that read "Women lawyers in black hoods, where is the light?" The appeal requests that these photos then be circulated via WeChat, Weibo, and elsewhere online, preferably with a description of how the women feel with their heads covered by black hoods. 


2014年3月29日凌晨三点多,王胜生律师(女)在黑龙江省建三江七星拘留所等待会见时,被建三江警方非法绑架,头被带黑头套,双手被反绑!律师依法会见,竟被带黑头套!这是对法律的严重践踏,更是对女律师的严重侮辱,为抗议建三江警方的暴力、恐怖活动,现征集女律师以行为艺术形式提出严正抗议!

活动方式如下:

一、拍照。一人或多人一起,拍一张头戴黑头套,双手被反绑,胸前带“女律师被带黑头套,光明在哪里”标语的照片。

二、将照片在微信、微博上广泛传播,最好描写一下自己戴上黑头套的感受。

为了我们自己不再被带黑头套,姐妹们,行动起来!
