Toast at the Stateless Breakfast

   Teng Biao

   When I was kidnapped and put into solitary confinement by Chinese secret police, I didn’t lose hope. I knew I was not alone. I knew that people, like many of you, were worrying about detained prisoners of conscience.
   Hundreds of Chinese human rights lawyers have been jailed because they defended for dissidents, Tibetans, Uighurs, underground churches and Falungong practitioners. Rights activists are either in prison or on the way to prison. If Obama lives in China, as a lawyer with political pursuit, he will be in black jail, not White House.
   Even though the crackdown is more severe than before, many new lawyers are still joining us. As the brave lawyer Gao Zhisheng said, “torture is their fear, not my fear.”
   I was tortured every day during my detention, the guards were ordered not to open the windows and curtains. But a guard opened the windows for me for a couple of times. And another time he even took me out of my cell, letting me breath fresh air. I’d say that wherever or whenever human dignity prevails, tyranny is defeated. The Chinese Communist Party has been doing something against human nature, that’s why we have sacrificed so much to fight against the Communist Party.
   Xi Jinping is not far from here. This rising suppressive regime is threatening the whole free world. Is Xi going to be another Hitler?
   Yes and No. Yes – if we choose to keep silent, if we put profits over human rights and freedom. No – if we do something before it’s too late, if we unite – to be the voice of the voiceless, the power of the powerless, and the hope of the hopeless.
