Introduction

Peng Yongfeng is a lawyer at Hebei Hope Law Firm and deals with matters pertaining to the legal rights of citizens. Because he has represented the cases of Falun Gong members many times, he has also experienced pressure from government officials. Previously, he defended Hu Miaomiao, a female student from Hebei Province who was illegally sent to a labor camp and suffered mistreatment at the hands of the authorities. Later, because his law firm received pressure from the authorities he was removed of representation. Peng Yongfeng works tirelessly on behalf of other arrested rights lawyers to give them a voice.
