Tianxiagong has organized a petition calling for equal rights for HIV-positive job seekers after helping a patient take a discrimination case to court in 2010. Zhang Yue reports.

A petition from more than 12,000 people was sent to the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security and the Ministry of Health on Tuesday, to mark World AIDS Day on Thursday, calling for equal rights for HIV-positive job seekers.

The petition, called "One photo for each, smiling to support equal working rights for HIV carriers", was initiated by Tianxiagong (Justice for All), a Nanjing-based NGO promoting welfare, benevolence and equality. Campaign participants typically take a picture while holding a piece of paper saying they are willing to work with HIV/AIDS patients.
