Charter 08, One Year On

By E. PERRY LINK
A year ago, on the 60th anniversary of the unveiling of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, 303 Chinese announced "Charter 08," a citizens' manifesto calling for constitutional democracy, human rights, rule of law and tripartite separation of powers in government.
