Did Gao Zhisheng die under torture in detention?

first_img News China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison Follow the news on China News to go further April 27, 2021 Find out more RSF_en Reporters Without Borders calls on the Chinese authorities to produce evidence that detained human rights lawyer Gao Zhisheng, of whom there has been no news since 4 February 2009, is still alive.“We fear the worst,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The authorities must provide his relatives with proof that he is still alive. They must give the family details about his current place of detention and must allow his wife to have direct contact with him.”The press freedom organisation added: “If anything has happened to him while in detention, the authorities will be held responsible and those who had a direct hand in it must be identified and punished. The uncertainty about his fate has gone on long enough.”After being sentenced for the first time to three years in prison in 2006, he was released and then rearrested several times. He was arrested for the last time in his home in Shaanxi by Public Security Department officials on 4 February 2009. When later asked what had happened to him, the police said he “disappeared” in September 2009.As a defence attorney, Gao’s clients included Zheng Yichun, a journalist and former professor who was sentenced in 2005 to seven years in prison because of what he had written. Recognised by the justice ministry as “one of the country’s 10 best lawyers” in 2001, Gao also defended members of the Falun Gong spiritual movement and Cai Zhohua, a protestant pastor who was given a three-year sentence for printing and distributing bibles.He was one of a group of activists (including Hua Jia) who staged a rotating hunger strike for human rights in 2006. Participants in a total of 29 provinces and abroad took it in turns to fast for 24 hours. Several of them were arrested.In an open letter written in November 2007 and published in February 2009, he described one of the torture sessions he underwent as follows: “ ‘Gao Zhisheng! You mother****er! Your date with death is today! Brothers! Let’s show the bastard how brutal we can get. Kill the bastard.’ A leader of the group screamed. Then, four men with electric batons started to beat my head and body with ferocity. Nothing but the noise of the beating and my moaning could be heard in the room. I was beaten so severely that my whole body began shaking uncontrollably on the floor.” News February 5, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Did Gao Zhisheng die under torture in detention?

Can a Tech Company Build a City? Ask Google

first_imgNet-Zero Cities Aren’t Possible, You Say?Can Rural Living Be As Green As Urban Living? From The New York Times: City of the Future? RELATED ARTICLES No longer ‘us and them’Sidewalk Toronto is being built as a beacon for other cities to follow.The way Sidewalk Labs sees it, the idea that technologists and urbanists can’t get along has to change. The company is integrating urbanists and technologists into its product planning. It’s including residents and workers in beta testing, with a city government giving it social license to operate.Instead of a cartel of architects, urban planners, consultants, developers, and regulators mapping out the future of the city behind closed doors using the standard master planning process, the company will spend US$50 million over the next year to support an open conversation between citizens, governments, universities, and others about what Sidewalk Toronto should be.Sidewalk Labs hosted a community town hall meeting in November, inviting Toronto residents to join the conversation.Sidewalk Labs is building offices across the U.S. It’s recruiting a cavalcade of new product managers, partnership and business development managers, machine-learning specialists, and forward-thinking urbanists.If its aggressive recruitment strategy is anything to go by, Sidewalk Labs is aiming for its tech products — focused on urban disruption, powered by the data it hoovers up from our daily lives — to raise the bar for city-making around the world. Doctoroff describes his desire to expand to other cities as “insatiable.”No doubt there will be lots of ideas that go nowhere. But one thing is clear: Sidewalk Labs is thinking about cities like no other technology company has done before it.Whether it succeeds in actually building one is everybody’s business. By SARAH BARNSSidewalk Labs, the urban innovation startup owned by Google’s parent company Alphabet, has announced a partnership with the City of Toronto to develop a new waterfront precinct. Time to ask Google: Can you build a city?The Quayside precinct, dubbed “Sidewalk Toronto,” is to become a 500-hectare (1,236-acre) sandpit for testing a suite of new tech products. The aim is to radically reimagine the way a city is made. (Further reading: Creative City, Smart City … Whose City Is It?.)Even if only a fraction of the ideas being touted work, Sidewalk Labs will be expanding the possibilities of tech-enabled urbanism to far loftier heights than many run-of-the-mill smart city strategies.Best take note. Any city mildly interested in using technology smarts to improve cities should be paying very close attention. Learning from smart city failuresSidewalk Toronto plans to grow phoenix-like out of the ashes of failed smart cities.Smart cities are based on the idea that cities can be made more liveable, sustainable, and efficient by making better use of information and communications technologies. This idea promises a lot, but so far has failed to deliver much.center_img The biggest failures in the 20-year history of smart cities — notably China’s Dongtan and South Korea’s Songdo — are testament to the hard-boiled truth that good cities can’t be built out of a technology mainframe. Even if they have tech smarts, they haven’t been places people have learned to call home.And, as companies like IBM, Cisco, and Microsoft have learned, it’s not easy to redeploy the large-scale operating systems used by big organizations into complex urban environments.Cities are messy places. They’re a heady mix of privatized utilities, legacy infrastructures, resource-constrained public authorities, and opinionated voting publics. These ingredients have made it hard to sell a data platform that can operate at the scale needed to produce any real efficiency benefits.Instead, what has so far been delivered are cities abounding in prototypes of smart parking and smart lights. More were announced in November under the Australian government’s A$50 million Smart Cities and Suburbs Program. Reimagining cities from the internet upWe have seen very little of the “game-changing” disruption promoted at smart city conferences worldwide. This is also why Sidewalk Labs matters.Led by CEO Dan Doctoroff, who was deputy mayor of New York under Michael Bloomberg, the company is on a mission to “reimagine cities from the internet up.” Crucially, this is Google’s version of the internet — the one you’re most likely occupying most of your waking hours.Instead of trying to sell a clunky operating system that fits legacy infrastructure with new data points, Sidewalk Labs is building products it thinks will change how citizens use the city. And let’s not forget it will own and monetize the data created when people use these products.Rather than upgrading what we have already, the thinking behind Sidewalk Labs is more focused on the core of how people behave in cities.For instance, its parking app, Flow, isn’t just about helping you find an empty parking space, as many smart parking systems do. It introduces a new pricing model that lowers the cost of parking for people who have had to travel farther. And it penalizes those who really should have walked.The point of using sensors to monitor air quality and temperature isn’t just to generate real-time data, which governments may or may not use. It proposes to use the data to create optimized environments that reduce the need for restrictive zoning, allowing for “radical mixed use” zoning.City Block Health, another startup spun out of Sidewalk Labs, is a personalized health system in the U.S. for Medicaid or Medicare members. Presumably, though it’s a bit hard to tell, this will allow these people to be supported across many different (data-driven) interactions as they shop, commute, and go about their daily lives.This is human-centred product design for an era of not just digitally enabled but “Google-powered” citizens.The solutions offered here take in the full span of city regulation, pricing, planning, building, and human interaction. This is not just tinkering at the edges of urban systems with new technology; this is redesigning the system with the technology at the core.Of course, the scope to experiment with and ultimately reshape Google-powered urban behavior is only possible when Sidewalk Labs owns and operates the city space where it can trial its products. This is the premise of Sidewalk Toronto. Sarah Barns is a research fellow at the Institute for Culture and Society at Australia’s Western Sydney University.
