A democracy activist who helped organize the 1989 Tiananmen Square protests was released by China and arrived in the United States on Thursday.

Wang Youcai, 37, a physicist, was given medical parole, said John Kamm, executive director of the Dui Hua Foundation, a rights group.

A group of Chinese democracy activists denounced the arrest of three prominent Chinese dissidents, accusing the Beijing government in an open letter Wednesday of failing to comply with U.N. human rights treaties it has signed over the past year. The letter, signed by 190 democracy activists, called for the release of Xu Wenli, Qin Yongmin and Wang Youcai--all outspoken organizers in a campaign to establish an opposition party that would challenge the Communist Party's monopoly on power.
