On March 14, 1989, 43 intellectuals signed an open letter to the National People's Congress which was in session at the time. This is the 4th and last in the wave of open letters appealing for amnesty in the spring of 1989.
The Seventh National People's Congress, Second Plenary Session
At this moment just before the the 40th anniversary of our country, we call on the National People's Congress to follow the precedents since the founding of nation and provide amnesty to some prisoners. A little earlier, some intellectuals called for the release of Wei Jingsheng and others. We believe their suggestion is in accordance to the Constitution and the will of people. Therefore, we once again appeal for the National People's Congress to consider it.
