2.Hunger Strike Statement near New Years Evening

Work for a Free China; Join our hunger strike for it! On Noon Dec 27 to Noon Dec 28, 1997

New Year Announcement

1997 is approaching the end.

When the bell rings for the new year, there are only two years left for us to enter the new 21st century. We clearly realize that our motherland should not miss another century; generations of Chinese have dreamed to establish a free, democratic and wealthy China.

We solemnly announce that we shall fast for the whole day today as a manifest of protest in front of the Chinese Emvassy to the U.S.

For those who have been making their efforts to realize the dream and those who are now in the custody because of their pro-democratic activities; We would like them to know that, although we are in a free country, we still fully aware that it is not our land, we never forget our compatriots, our brothers and sisters, our hearts are forever bound to our motherland which belongs to all of us.

At the moment, all domestic voices for freedom are under suppression by the "communist" regime. But we still firmly believe that no one is capable of cutting the throat of liberty. The future of China is on the shoulders of all the Chinese who do not have the slightest fear of sacrifice and bravely struggle for a new China.

Here we give our particular salutation to the masses of workers and pessants in China mainland! We deeply know that you are exhausted, your are the genuine creators of the national wealth and treasure, you are our own brothers and sisters. We struggle for your right of equal access to working as well as the right of fairly distributing the wealth. And your unyielding spirit of struggle for freedom has encouraged all of us and given us the confidence and valour to be persistent in our common struggle. We, therefore, must unite and march toward our common ideal.

At the same time, we will specifically warn the "communist" officers and officials at all levels, who keep on massacring and oppressing the Chinese people, especially the ruling clique headed by Jiang Zemin and Li Peng, please don't rely on your tricks and manoevers to fool the people any more. The blood shed by the people for freedom is not your esclator to power. On the day when the spring of China's democracy comes, you will be judged by the people, and your descendents will feel shameful because of your crimes. You have to lean from the mirror of history. Here we quote one paragraph from "The Rosses without Flowers" written by Lu Hsun, which serves as an encouragement to our comrades as well as a warning to those who have usurped the government power:

" The bullets spreaded the warm blood of the youth. The blood will neither camouflage the lies written in ink, nor be intoxicated by the written condolence. No threat can suppress it, because it won't be cheated and murdered any more!"
