Those close to Li Wangyang are showing this photo of his “alleged suicide” position and saying:
” I cannot believe this is suicide so I am feeling very bad. A person was killed in hospital and his corpse was left hanging in front of a window! His feet was touching the ground. How can this horror and premeditated murder be permitted ? So like those who were hung on the cross, anyone who witnessed this and had to attest to the Lord’s death, would feel horror and great sadness. From the moment I saw his death cell to now, I cannot tell you the pain that I do not know how to express nor can I tell you how endlessly my tears are flowing and will continue to flow”
Translated: When the chinese community asked for a forensic expert (CSI) to comment on Li Wang Yang’s crime scene, they found:
1) The knot used was an expert knot, commonly known as “The king of knots”, safe & secure & infallible BUT rarely perfected unless someone had expert training. Furthermore there was burnt mark to the head in a position that indicated the victim could not inflict on himself (given his disabilities)
2) Given the weight of Li Wang Yang, if he hung himself, there is no way the rope itself could support his body weight.
3) Li Wang yang’s left hand was clutching a wire coat-hanger, if he had “hung himself” his natural body reflexes would have bent the wire one way or another, yet the Coat-hanger remain in perfect Triangular shape.
In the opinions of the CSI expert in the field, the chances of Li Wang Yang commiting suicide is almost ZERO!
At the time of writing this blog, this news has not broken in the western media yet. This is some basic information about Li Wangyang:
Li Wangyang was found dead, hung in hospital under very suspicious circumstances. Pictures showed that his feet was touching the ground, so how did he voluntarily “hang himself” given the forensic expert’s opinion finding evidence to the contrary? Many chinese activists are outraged and consider this a Retaliation by Communist Chinese Government for the success of 180,000 strong pro-democracy Tiananmen Memorial Candlight vigil in Victoria Park in hong kong on the 4th June 2012.

Li Wangyang, a veteran labor rights activist from Hunan Province, was sentenced to 10 years in prison for incitement to subvert state power by the Peoples Intermediate Court of Shaoyang on September 20, 2001. Li was accused of subversion for demanding that the government pay for treatment of medical conditions he developed during 11 years in prison for promoting labor rights during the 1989 democracy movement.
Born in 1950, Li Wangyang became of the earliest advocates for independent labor unions in China while employed at the Shaoyang Cement Plant. During the 1989 demonstrations, Li founded the Shaoyang Autonomous Workers Union. Union members frequently gave speeches, distributed printed materials, put up big character posters and organized committees and demonstrations that advocated better protections for the rights of Chinese workers.
On June 4, 1989, the day of the Beijing Massacre, Li glued a big character poster onto a traffic sign in the Peoples Square of Shaoyang City. The poster appealed to local workers to go on strike and to give their lives to the cause for love of country. Two days later on June 6, Li and members of other independent organizations in Shaoyang held a public memorial for the victims of the massacre in Beijing. On June 9, Li was detained on charges of counterrevolutionary propaganda and incitement. His formal arrest came a week later.
On October 25, 1989, the Shaoyang Intermediate Peoples Court convicted Li on this charge, and sentenced him to 13 years in prison and four years deprivation of political rights. He was transferred to Hunan No.1 Prison.
In June 1996, Li was moved into a hospital for treatment of heart disease. Returned to prison in March 1997, Li developed severe hearing and vision problems, and his general health deteriorated to the extent that he could not walk without assistance. He was released from prison on June 8, 2000, after he had served 11 years of his 13-year term.
A medical examination following Lis release revealed that in addition to heart disease, he also suffered from neck problems and had apparently shrunk in height during his stay in prison. Li measured 182 centimeters before entering prison. Eleven years later, he measured only 173 centimeters, the result of being beaten and confined to a cramped cell for many years.
With no source of income and facing large medical bills without health insurance, Li repeatedly petitioned the Shaoyang government to take responsibility for the numerous health problems he had developed as a result of the inhumane treatment he received in prison. Facing only silence in response, Li wrote to the city government on January 5, 2001. He demanded that the authorities act in a spirit of decency and morality, and escort him to the hospital. He threatened to bring his case to the attention of the international community, and said he was willing to lay down his life for the cause if necessary.
Four days later on January 9, city officials escorted Li to the hospital for treatment. But the authorities only arranged to pay for 2,000 yuan worth of medical treatment. On February 2, Li began a hunger strike to protest against the Shaoyang governments decision to stop paying his medical expenses, while also expressing his opposition to political repression in China in general.
Lis fast continued for 22 days. Officials from the local government and state security and public security bureaus visited Li in the hospital to discuss his situation. One official demanded that Li stop pressuring the government. Li told relatives he would end his fast but would continue to petition the government to pay his medical care.
Months later on May 6, Li was arrested on charges of incitement to subvert state power by agents of Shaoyang City Public Security Bureau at the Daxiang Hospital in Hunan Province. Lis sister, Li Wanglin, and brother-in-law, Zhao Baozhu, were also taken from their home and put into police custody for questioning. Zhao was later released, but Li Wanglin was sentenced to three years of reeducation through labor for helping her brother publicize his situation and his hunger strike.
Li was convicted of incitement to subvert state power by the Shaoyang Peoples Intermediate Court on September 5, 2001. Lis brother-in-law, Zhao Baozhu, and many friends were denied access to the proceedings. In another closed hearing two weeks later, Li was sentenced to 10 more years in prison.

For everyone who reads chinese here, I find this comment by Li Wangyang very moving!! (English info about Liu can be found here: http://www.hrichina.org/content/4761) :
受尽22年酷刑六四工运人士李旺阳永不言悔 (Translated: Due to his protest of the Tiananmen massacre Li Wangyang was imprisoned for 22 years, yet he says: I regret nothing, ever!) What a courageous man! RESPECT! ♥
8th June 2012:
Chinese activists from around the world started using this symbol for Li Wang Yang’s death:
9th June 2012: Li WangYang’s last interview on the 2nd June 2012..an exclusive to HK online TV before he was murdered on the 6th June. he is talking about Tiananmen Massacre and 23 years of hardship, protest, courage & hope! ♥ RIP Li Wang Yang! PLEASE Share!!!
In Denmark, Danish Activists called for everyone in the country to put on a “white rope” around their necks when Hu Jintao visits Copenhagen and they are pressuring their own press to exercise Free speech and ask some “interesting questions”about Li to Hu Jintao when he visits before he goes to the G20.
Message from Danish Activists:
Would you all please share the message to anybody danish – or visiting Denmark this coming week – 14., 15. and 16. June – to wear a white scarf all the time everywhere they go? Please help spread the word! It such a visible – yet very peaceful and compassionate demonstration – that will show in all the press photos if enough people join.
10th June 2012:
In an act of non-violent Protest against the Killing of Tiananmen Students and LI Wang Yang, Hong Kong’s 4th June Tiananmen museum found that someone (we don’t know whom) has Desecrated the historic photo of Deng Shao Ping! …this is a symbolic protest in Southern China that has far reaching implications in the Chinese world given Deng Shao Ping symbolically planted a tiny “money” tree in Shenzhen (bordertown to Hong kong) when China’s economic first boom strategies started in the 80s!
On the same day Li Wang Yang’s body was cremated abruptly preventing the possibility of further forensic inquest!
Hong kong Apple Daily News: Li Wang Yang’s body was Crimated so that no further Forensic Test can be taken by experts to determine his REAL Cause of Death! Is this the Communist Chinese Party YOU want to do business with, world? Send your productions order to Indian or South America, anywhere where you can cost Hu Jintao Trade Money!
11th June 2012. In the short space of 3 days, Hong Kong managed to organise a 25000 strong demonstration asking for Justice4 LI Wang Yang during a weekday, working hours (which for many HOng kongers are not really the best time to attend a protest!) Yet apart from Apple Daily and am 730, all the other newspaper in Hong kong ignored the news because they were warned to “go cold” to freeze out the call for Justice4 Li Wang Yang!
李旺陽事件三天內能號召2.5萬人上街，請問昨天有比這大的新聞作頭條嗎？看看除了蘋果和am 730 外，其他報紙都冷處理遊行報導，自我審查到這種地步的報紙真係睇嚟都嘥時間!
25K Protestors demanded an explanation to Li Wang Yang’s “fake suicide”!
19th June 2012 from Hong kong re: 1st July Pro-democracy demonstration:
港7·1或逾5萬人上街 全球逾1.3萬人網上連署 北京為平息港人對“六四鐵漢”李旺陽冤案的憤怒，日前急令湖南徹查事件，但湖南當局根本無意查出真相，李旺陽胞妹李旺玲仍然失蹤，為李旺陽申冤的維權人士亦受打壓及恐嚇。支聯會及多個民間團體對北京的“假調查”極為不滿，正部署於6月30日發動大型示威，甚至包圍訪港國家主席胡錦濤下榻的酒店，要他親睹港人對李旺陽“被自殺”的怒火。 當局聲稱將徹查事件之際，李旺陽的家人與朋友仍然“被失蹤”，至今下落不明，未有因重新調查案件而被釋放。北京對李旺陽案的“假調查、真打壓”手法，引來香港泛民人士強烈不滿。 支聯會主席李卓人表示，湖南的做法正好證明北京所謂調查實際只是緩兵之計，旨在為七一遊行消音，“皇帝（胡錦濤）出巡，怕有人告禦狀。”他稱，一定要讓胡錦濤親睹港人對李旺陽冤案的憤怒，正部署6月30日發動大型示威，計畫當晚于胡錦濤下榻的酒店外抗議，令胡錦濤感受到港人怒火。 多個民間團體亦表明將全力配合支聯會6月30日發起的抗議行動，密切留意胡錦濤來港後所到的地點，展開機動式抗議行動，“我們一定會去抗議，要求平反六四、徹查李旺陽事件”。 李旺陽冤死事件，民怨燃燒至6月30日，跨越7月1日，當日遊行人數隨時遠超目標5萬人。警方週五晚向七一遊行發出不反對通知書，列明全面開放所有遊行路線的西行行車線，但不准玩樂器及舞龍舞獅。 不反對通知書列明，遊行當日會開放軒尼詩道、金鐘道等主要道路西行的所有行車線，又要求民陣安排至少200名糾察，並協助警方與參加者溝通，盡力確保參與者不會無牌籌款。 此外，湖南省方面雖表明會重新調查李旺陽死亡真相，但中國維權人士北風在上週三發起的全球連署行動，參與人數有增無減，截至週六中午12時，參與者已超過1.3萬人，參與連署人數仍陸續增加中。 今年七一特區政府換屆，胡錦濤來港主持交接儀式，但香港出現複雜的形勢，而李旺陽事件帶來的衝擊又難以估量，示威遊行的失控危機陡增，北京方面高度重視嚴峻局面，已部署重兵防備。 據悉，解放軍駐港部隊已進入一級戒備，週四晚由惠州秘密調動裝甲車隊來港，作為震懾力量“維穩”。
23 rd June SOS for Human rights!
Translated: Please keep up the pressure to Launch the “Li Wangyang is suicide the fact-finding Commission” which the pro- democracy fighters Zhou Zhirong has been very vocal about! Zhou is being targetted and is considered “a criminal and a thorne in the sides” of Communist Chinese Dictatorship! If the world does not Support Zhou’s case with our utmost attention, the Chinese Communists may once again, sentenced another innocent person to Death! We cannot lose any more Li Wangyang!
So Next Media (Apple Daily Hong kong’s pro-democracy press) just Declared in its newspaper that it is being attacked by phishers contacting those who are activists in Hong kong asking to interview them about yearly 1 July Pro-democracy Hong kong demonstration, impersonating Journalists from Next Media! Who do you think is doing that? btw. My Li Wang Yang blog in ceciliawyu.wordpress.com keeps getting the “Same robot” commenting claiming Li Wang Yang could have killed himself in the last week (funny how no IP is left when its a robot ! )
