"I feel dejected, like somebody is stepping on my back," Grenke said after a forum Tuesday at the Southfield Public Library. The event was sponsored by Rep. Sander Levin, D-Royal Oak, to highlight what supporters say is the need to extend federal unemployment benefits. "I worked for 16 ...

Liu Xia has been held in extralegal house arrest since October 2010. “Chinese authorities have kept Liu Xia under house arrest for years.

The resolution expresses concern for the wellbeing of Liu Xia, who has suffered from illnesses, including severe depression and a heart condition since at least 2013. It is not known if Liu Xia has received adequate treatment for her conditions while under house arrest. The text of the resolution can be found here. ###
