Reflections during My Hunger Strike

January 14, 2014

This reflection was written when the author, Xiao Guozhen, was fasting for one day on January 4, 2014, as part of an international hunger strike relay to commemorate June Fourth victims. The hunger strike relay is part of the Tianxia Weicheng campaign, which was kicked off in the United States on January 1, 2014, and will continue until June 4, 2014. Since April 2013, many of Xiao’s friends, including Yuan Dong, Ding Jiaxi, Zhao Changqing, Liu Ping, Song Ze, Xu Zhiyong, Guo Feixiong, Li Huaping, Wang Gongquan, and other rights defenders have been arrested or detained in succession. Xiao pledges:  “We cannot let them sit in jail for nothing. We must make every effort to build a China that is for the people, governed by the people, shared by the people, and blessed under God.”
