Gu Yimin Detained, Home is Raided

September 8, 2016

On the morning of September 8, activist Gu Yimin from Changshu, Jiangsu Province, was taken away while bringing his son to school. In the below statement, Gu’s wife, Xu Yan, describes how a number of police officers also raided their home. The police told her that Gu was suspected of “picking quarrels and provoking trouble,” and prevented her from using the telephone. According to Xu, the police did not leave a list of the items they confiscated from the home. The previous day Gu Yimin had finally found work, after his release from prison in November 2014. "This gang of animals are determined to not let us live," Xu said angrily, requesting that people pay attention to her husband’s case.

Gu, 37, was arrested and charged on June 1, 2013 after he posted photos related to the 1989 Democracy Movement on line, and filed a request to hold a march to mark the anniversary of the June Fourth crackdown. On March 24, 2014, the Changshu Municipal People’s Court sentenced Gu to 18 months’ imprisonment for “inciting subversion of state power,” with an additional two years’  of post-release deprivation of political rights.

今天9月8号,我正在上厕所,突然听到楼下有好多人,刚开始还以为是派出所来查房客信息的,但是后来听到上楼的声音,从厕所出来,也不知道有多少人已经站到我面前,拿了个纸在我面前晃了晃,说:抄家……我一头雾水,说:咋了,啥事情抄家,他说顾义民涉嫌寻衅滋事,我说:具体什么事。他说:不是说了吗?寻衅滋事……!好吧,我懂都是机密。第一个自称警察说:这是我的警官证。也是一晃而过的,我说那不是警察的下去,后来纷纷都拿出所谓的警官证晃了一下,他们就开始他们的抄家,我想把他们的光辉形象拍下来,但是被告知不能拍,也不能打电话,我说:笑话了,我在我家打个电话都不行?那女警察就上来抢我手机,但是没抢到,我想下楼打电话给顾义民的,(其实那时顾义民已经被他们带走了,我还天真的以为他还在送儿子上学,)我下楼后面跟了好多人,我就开门跑了出去,一边跑一边给顾义民打电话,打了两个没人接,(这才反应过来他被带走了)后面的人说别让她打电话,我拼了命的往外跑,(大个肚子,实在是跑不动)跑到大马路上,我说:你们今天谁敢碰我一下我就撞死在这,我就站在马路上给朋友打电话。打完电话说带我去派出所,我说:我干吗要去,不去。后来就回了家,回家看到他们正热火朝天的翻着我家的东西,连我儿子的田字格本都不放过。搜了好久,终于完事了,叫我签字,有一个没签,我只签了口东西的,但是他们走的时候扣押单没给我,我问他要顾义民的传唤证也不给我,也就是说,他们什么都没留下,只是把我们的东西拿走了……一张纸都没留下……现在我也不知道具体是什么情况,昨天顾义民刚找了个工作,现在又没戏了,这帮畜生是铁了心不让我们活了。有在微店买东西的亲们,等我重新整理后再发货,不好意思了!见谅!写的有点乱,将就着看吧。
