Eric Peterson to Discuss International Human Rights Day

Canadian Actor Eric Peterson is on the show tonight to discuss an important campaign for International Human Rights Day:

Liu Xiaobo is a Chinese human rights activist who won this year's Nobel Peace Prize. But he's unable to go receive it tomorrow because his country's keeping him in prison.

Amnesty International is fighting to get Liu Xiaobo out of jail, and tomorrow, they'll take the signatures on this petition to Canada's Chinese Embassy to demand Liu's release.
