A youth organisation in Sweden is campaigning for the local authorities to rename a square outside Gothenburg’s Chinese consulate after imprisoned Swedish bookseller Gui Minhai.

A representative from the Liberal Party’s youth organisation Olle Johnson told HKFP that the group submitted a proposal to Gothenburg’s city committee and launched an online petition.

Gui sold political gossip books in Hong Kong but disappeared during a vacation in Thailand in 2015 only to reemerge on state TV in China “confessing” to past crimes. He was sentenced to 10 years behind bars in February for “illegally providing intelligence” to overseas parties.

Rachel Wong previously worked as a documentary producer and academic researcher. She has a BA in Comparative Literature and European Studies from the University of Hong Kong. She has contributed to A City Made by People and The Funambulist, and has an interest in cultural journalism and gender issues.
