Nobel Peace Prize laureate and political dissident Liu Xiaobo died of liver cancer on Thursday. He was imprisoned by the Chinese government on charges of sedition for nearly a decade. Chinese authorities recently granted Liu a medical parole and moved him from prison to a hospital.

He was a Chinese literary critic, lecturer and human rights activist.  He was a leader in the Tiananmen Square protests in 1989.

In Charter 08, Liu wrote : “Freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of assembly, freedom of association, freedom in where to live, and the freedoms to strike, to demonstrate, and to protest, among others, are the forms that freedom takes…”

It does appear that  Liu Xiaobo posessed a relatively high amount of intuition.
