Chairman Jun Wang：Speech on the 15th Annual Commemoration of Human Rights Day in Congress
Ladies and Gentlemen:
Today is a date worthy to commemorate: the 15th Annual Commemoration of Human Rights Day in Congress.
15 years ago I was still in China. I used to be a major officer in China Army. I’ve served in the military for 18 years. I was on a military reporter, and I had the experience of doing maintenance for attacking planes and also reporting life on submarine or warships, so I had thorough knowledge about China Army officers of different levels and the interior and exterior sides about China Army. I was demobilized from China North Sea Fleet and then I settled down in Qing Dao City, Shandong Province. As a local civilian I was disciplinarily punished by the communist organization because I opposed China Communist officials’ embezzlement and corruption by taking advantage of their power, and I was removed from a unit manager position, and finally I was compelled to leave China. I have rich knowledge about China veterans’ hard life, so I devoted myself to democracy and human right movement as soon as I came to the Untied States.
Through personal experience, I understand the hardship of the ordinary people. I keep in close contact with many persons in China and I know their hard life. For example, those facing forced house demolish/relocation can not get their compensation at the market value level; instead, their houses’ values are extremely low-evaluated according to government administrative orders. Laid-off workers can not get their subsidies to make a normal life and their past working years’ values were once paid with very little amount and no more. Farmers lost their land under various projects permitted by the government, but their compensation money was divided and embezzled by communist officials at different levels in rural area. We often try to help them, and spread the message of democracy through them, so as to improve the human right conditions in China society, reducing the harms of the dictatorial rules.
For those China Democracy Party members arrested and jailed by China communist authority and their families we often sincerely help them morally and economically.
Through contacting them I deeply feel the pains of the ordinary Chinese people regarding education, medical care and senior care, and I understand why the ordinary Chinese have to save their every penny in bank, no matter how the money devalued, and as a result of their so doing it worsened the global economic crisis.
Because China is playing a more and more important role in global issues, the importance of our struggle for the democracy and human right in China also became more obvious, and we will have more opportunities to cooperate with you in our future work.
Now I wish a success for the meeting and hope we will have such a good meeting every year, and let us united to work together for the improvement of human right conditions under the global economy crisis.
