Hu Jia is a activist and dissident in the People’s Republic of China. His work has focused on the Chinese democracy movement, Chinese environmentalist movement, and HIV/AIDS in China. In addition to being an auxiliary member of the team to save the endangered Tibetan antelope, Hu Jia has been involved with AIDS advocacy as the executive director of the Beijing Aizhixing Institute of Health Education and as one of the founders of the non-governmental organization Loving Source.
On December 27, 2007, Hu Jia was detained as part of crackdown on dissent during the West’s holiday season. Reporters Without Borders said that “The political police have taken advantage of the international community’s focus on Pakistan to arrest one of the foremost representatives of the peaceful struggle for free expression in China.” The decision to take him into custody was made after peasant leaders in several Chinese provinces issued a manifesto demanding broader land rights for peasants whose property had been confiscated for development.
Zeng Jinyan (Chinese: 曾金燕; born October 9, 1983), is a Chinese blogger and human rights activist.

The couple was placed under house arrest again, two months later on May 18 2007 for harming state security.  Zeng Jinyan is dubbed “Tiananmen 2.0.” and selected as TIME Magazine’s 100 People Who Shape Our World in 2007 as a hero and a pioneer.
