When President Clinton was visiting China, the Chinese Government and the President Jiang Zeming demonstrated the gesture of enlightenment which has won high acclaim from international community. Immediately after President Clinton left, a new wave of political persecution was launched by Chinese Communist China against Chinese political prisoners. At about eight o'clock PM, the Public Security Bureau of Hangzhou arrested the following founding members of Forming Committee of Chinese Democratic Party In Zhejiang Province: Wang You Chai, Wang Donghai, Wang Peijian, Cheng Fan, Wu Gaoxing; Immediately afterwards, the PSB arrested Wang Qiang, Zhu Zhengming, Fang Xiaofeng, Zhu Yufu, at this moment, the wave of arrest is still going on. The Police authority is searching and pursuing another CDP leader Lin Hui.
We urgently call to international community for its full awareness to Chinese communist dictators' human rights abuse and we call for international community to express stern condemnation, we also call international community to build up pressure on Chinese government.
Chinese authorities arrested our CDP leaders with the charge of
"Conspiring to overthrow the government". The charge is libelous
and of distortion of facts. The CDP has declared its founding principles
to the entire world:
"CDP strongly believe: the provisions and the context of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights have specified the inalienable rights which shall not be infringed or violated. The CDP is fully committed to fight against the violation of human rights.
The CDP advocates fair competition in both economic and political area,
oppose political monopoly and economic monopoly in any forms; The CDP is
also committed to promote the transparency in political life and administrative
efficiency, the CDP calls for social and political institutional transformation
through peaceful and orderly manner, we oppose chaos, we oppose the removal
of violence by using violence. We believe that we should achieve
our goals through peaceful, rationale and non-violent means. We support
that political confrontation should be replaced by civilized dialogues.
We oppose terrorism.
The CDP's purpose is to establish a constitutional democracy through direct and democratic election. We advocate an establishment of a check and balance system with which no power shall be built upon violent forces by any individuals or any groups. To achieve this goal, the armed forces must be nationalized, the greenhouse which produces political despotism and political corruption shall be completely damped whereas the nation of China may get rid of ruthless dictatorship of proletariat."
The above cited purpose and principles of the CDP clearly demonstrates that the CDP is not a party seeking for overthrowing government through conspiracy. The CDP is a political party which calls for fair political competition with the CCP. The rights that the CDP advocates have been specified in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
The PRC Government and President Jiang Zemin openly committed before President Clinton and the International community that the People's Republic would become the signatory to the UN International Convention on Civil and Political Rights, in fact, the People's Republic today still cannot tolerate the existence of any opposition parties in China. The People's Republic has mobilized violent police force to launch a large scale of massive arrests against us. This episode has clearly demonstrated the PRC Government's phony promise for political democratization; It also conspicuously indicates the great failure of President Clinton's China visit. We the Chinese Democratic Party strongly oppose the kow tow policy to the Chinese Communists, We hope that the international media also express its opposition to the pacifism.
We believe that the Chinese Communist dictators are unable to eradicate the existence of the CDP and its spirit. We also believe that the advancement of Chinese pro democracy movement, no matter how difficult it is, will not be eliminated. The second command center of the CDP is still in operation. This is our voice be heard by the International community. (30)
