China jails rights lawyer Wang Quanzhang

A Chinese court on Monday jailed rights lawyer Wang Quanzhang for subversion of state power. Wang has in the past taken cases deemed sensitive by authorities, such as accusations of police torture or defending members of the banned Falun Gong spiritual movement. A researcher from the Human Rights Watch said the verdict makes a ’mockery’ of President Jinping’s claims to champion the rule of law.

The fact that the Lawyer that fights for human rights is considered a subversive should terrify any sane person. More terrifying is that no one in China seems to be able to do anything to resist this tyranny.
