Liu Xiaobo was one of the key persons involved in the 1989 Tiananmen Square Massacre. He was a writer, literary critic, human rights activist, and co-author of Charter 08, a manifesto calling for political reform in China. He was arrested in 2009 on suspicion of “inciting subversion of state power” and sentenced to eleven years’ imprisonment. Liu Xiaobo was awarded the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize during this imprisonment in China. At the award ceremony Oslo, the award was presented to an empty chair. In 2017, Liu became the second Nobel Peace Prize laureate to die in state custody.

VSSDM erected a memorial plaque in order to commemorate his long and non-violent struggle for fundamental human rights in China.
