Activist Angela Gui hopes her host slot on Swedish Radio’s summer program will raise awareness of her father, the bookseller and publisher Gui Minhai, who is being held by the Chinese government.

"Not too many people in Sweden know who he is or what happened to him, which is very unsettling because he is a Swedish citizen," she told Radio Sweden. 

Angela Gui was born in and grew up in Sweden, where her father fled to following the Tiananmen Square protests in 1989.

She is now doing a PhD at Cambridge University on the role of images in Chinese public health campaigns of the Maoist period, but she is still very active in campaigning for her father's release.

"I actually think trying as much as I can to secure his release has been the most useful way I've found of dealing with it," she said.
