LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A former Chinese political prisoner is slated to give a lecture on human rights on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln campus.

Human rights activist Harry Wu will speak Monday at the University Program Council’s “In the Mouth of the Dragon: U.S./China Relations in the 21st Century.”

Wu will speak at 7:30 p.m. in the auditorium of the Nebraska Union. The event is free for UNL students with valid IDs, and $5 for all others.

Wu moved to the United States and founded the Laogai Research Foundation in 1992, which aims to raise public awareness of China’s system of forced labor camps. Having spent 19 years imprisoned in a Chinese labor and reform camp, Wu is especially concerned with China’s mistreatment of its prisoners and has written several books recounting his experiences.
