HousingWorksBlog: Chinese AIDS Activist Tian Xi
Excerpt: Chinese AIDS activist Tian Xi is free after a year in prison for destruction of property at the hospital where he was infected with HIV.
Tian, who has lobbied the Chinese government to compensate him and tens of thousands of others infected with HIV through the contaminated national blood supply, was released with no conditions. “He is completely free,” his lawyer, Liang Xiaojun, told the German press.
Tian’s family is now struggling to pay his medical bills. The activist network Asia Catalyst, which lobbied for his release, is soliciting donations to help.
