Detained Labour Activists

This section provides a comprehensive list of currently detained labour activists as well as details of selected cases of workers and others detained for their alleged involvement in worker protests and the struggle for freedom of association in China.

In addition to case profiles, the section also provides updates, research reports and details of union action on behalf of particular prisoners, a group of prisoners or labour unrest which resulted in detentions. We are also planning to include links to a full list of all currently detained labour activists as well as links to related sites.

If you belong to a union or organisation and are using this page as part of a campaign directed at the Chinese authorities please contact IHLO for advice on using Chinese language documents that may boost your campaign.

Extra-judicial Detention of Labour Activists

Apart from the list of imprisoned labour activists, IHLO is aware that labour rights defenders are also subject to all forms of extra-judicial detention imposed by the government and the public security without going through the judiciary. Disappeared and kept in the so-called black jails, which are un-identified converts from a state-owned hostel or farm, the detained activists are deprived of their civil and legal rights. The purpose of arbitrary detention is temporary punishment to stop the petitioners and advocates from pursuing their causes to the higher authorities. They are usually released in months’ time.

The new section collects their cases to call attention to systematic state punishments to labour rights activists and advocate for the rule of law and reform of the judicial system in China.
