Cai Lujun: Why should I flee mainland China? Author: Cai Lujun
China, my hometown, here are my relatives, here are my school days, where I lived 38 years altogether, where I dreamed of paradise, but I eventually had to leave in tears!
For my faith
I first cast doubt on the Chinese Communists during high school. Learning about modern history, I believed the Chinese Communist Party sells itself to the enemy, holding hands with the nation that occupied over two million square kilometers of Chinese land, killings numerous people, the Soviet Union. I questioned the idea of the armed revolution, but then, after all, I was still a teenager, but this period of history I was not impressed.
With the occurrence of 4 June 1989 bloody massacre I was completely disappointed with the dictatorship of the CCP, those who expect them to the benefit the people, is simply an idiot's dream! I resigned after a difficult choice, to find a way out.
After the expansion of access to information, I gradually realized that China's fundamental problem is the party's authoritarian system.
During the period of growth in thoughts,I read a large number of constitutional democracy, books, and gradually set up my own view of the world.
I've witnessed Communist China's brutal suppression of the China Democracy Party and the Falun Gong, I have a better understanding of the CCP's despicable and cruel nature. With the development and rise of the Internet in mainland China, I published some of my views on current affairs on the internet.
As a person, we deserve the to right to live and human dignity, and the PRC is trample on such rights everywhere. I put my writing as a fight for right of living and for human dignity, used the pen as a knife, attacked the Chinese Communist one-party dictatorship.
After New Year's Day in 2003, I saw a female college student suffered arrest for writing satire Politics news, after some thought, I could not resist to use my real name to post articles on the internet called "to be deterrent scared to death? Or the courage to stand up? "" What is the purpose of a democratic forum? " as well as other texts.
On February 21, 2003 I was arrested by the Chinese Communists in the name of incitement to overthrow the regime and sentenced to three years imprisonment.
In my opinion, regardless of how heinous the Communist China is, every man deserves the right to stand up and fight for human dignity, otherwise, what is the meaning of life?
For my parents
While I was in jail, my elderly parents, visited almost every week, although did not see a face and just left a few lines of text. My mother said to me: "As a Chinese, I understand you, as a mother, I am hurt about you!" As somebody's son, I was moved, but I also felt uneasy. After my release, I saw my parents obviously looked a lot older, and every time they looked at me, I always felt hesitated and made my look ashamed. In desperation, after released from prison less than a month I went to Shanghai, hoping to escape.
When I write something again, I received the father's phone call "You have your own faith and belief, I have no objection, but you have to consider whether your mother is able to withstand you in jail again!" I have no nothing to say.
As my constitutional rights, fighting for human dignity of what a man eligible to, I think that my actions can be justified, but for my fragile parents, to live in fear all day, it what I cannot face.
For my friends
Mr. Li Linong (prisoners of conscience, dissident, West Mr Kwok) is the person I met in the network which I admire his profound knowledge, his impassioned fighting spirit, so I learned a lot from him. But his long-term overdraft life on the internet, his untimely death. Due to the system of the Communist dictatorship, he did not see the publication of his own works online, even after he died, despite the various efforts of the friends were unable to publish is works.
Return power to the people to end corruption; return soldiers to the country to end absolute power; return rich to the city in order to restore business activity; return truth to history.
Mr. Li Linong four sentences, brilliantly derived the fundamental problems of mainland China!
There is no better way commemorate Mr. Li than to make his ideas spread, complete the unfulfilled aspirations of Mr. Li and gather his online articles "West Mr Kwok writings" can be be published so that more people can see his profound words and brilliant expositions.
For my own
After my release, I repeatedly suffered police harassment, I moved my home several times to avoid this dilemma. Although the CCP's a statement of repentance allows me to go home and plead not guilty, avoiding the threat of prison, I resolutely choose to protect my own human dignity, but I am only a ordinary man, I also have my emotions, I am also eager to avoid living in fear.
March 8, 2007, I applied for travel passport was refused by the Communist authorities, and restrictions to leave the country has no time limit. From whatever point of speaking, I do not allow them to starve me, I must protest, I have to flee their claws to find where I belong.
Taiwanese, experienced long-term struggle, and finally welcomed a constitutional democratic society, everyone truly become masters of their own, becoming the forefront group in front of all Chinese people. They are the beacon of the entire Chinese people, the direction of the entire Chinese people and the target of the entire Chinese people.
As a human being should have the rights and dignity of man, can not rely on the charity of those in power, like Taiwanese, we must work hard for our own dignity!
In the case of desperation, the situation can not be resolved, can not be avoided, for faith, for my family, for friends, for myself, I fled the Chinese mainland this piece of home and native land, headed for the world of democracy and freedom! Although this determination is difficult, but I firmly believe that my choice is right, time shall prove!
The free world, here I come! On the road of arduous hardships, even on the road of life is in danger, I am duty-bound to the barrier.
