Latest Report on the “Save Guo Feixiong: Hunger Strike Relay”

May 6, 2016

Ai Wu, one of the volunteers in the hunger strike campaign, reports that more than 1,000 people have signed a petition for Guo Feixiong’s release so that he may receive proper medical treatment. (To sign, email ziyoufeixiong@gmail.com. See details.)

Ai reports that lawyer Sui Muqing, a volunteer, had to withdraw from the hunger strike after he received threats from domestic security police; three hunger strikers were questioned by domestic security officers; and that authorities from Yangchun Prison called Guo’s sister on the phone and accused her of making trouble.

According to Ai Wu, the hunger strikers have two demands: 1) release Guo Feixiong for medical treatment, and 2) make public Guo’s medical records from when he entered both the Tianhe District Detention Center and Yangchun Prison, and also those from during his detention.

Ai said she received information that Guo’s lawyer was given permission to see his client on May 7 for two minutes, during which time Guo was not allowed to speak.

Ai urges volunteers to sustain the hunger strike campaign and appeals for the attention of the international community and human rights organizations on Guo, who has risked his life in the fight for ideals.

Background:

After reports surfaced that Guo Fexiong was suffering from serious health issues in prison, a group of well-known Chinese activists initiated a 24-hour hunger strike relay, beginning on May 4. The initiators urge all volunteers to send out a short public statement before their strike and to share their thoughts in writing after they finish their strike.


声援郭飞雄最新绝食人报告

2016年4月26日,有报导称,在阳春监狱服刑的人权活动家郭飞雄(实名杨茂东)病情恶化,危及生命,得不到治疗和身体检查。消息传出,引发民众持续不满,要求中国政府为郭飞雄保外就医。数天时间,签名要求为其保外就医的民众,就已超过1000人。

5月4日,更有民间抗争人士,以绝食接力的方式声援郭飞雄。他们提出两项诉求:一、为郭飞雄保外就医;二、希望曾关押郭飞雄的天河看守所和阳春监狱,公布郭飞雄的两份入狱体检报告,和他被关押期间的健康数据。

首位绝食人,是四川的谭作人先生。响应谭作人与他同天绝食的,有曾蓉和方言女士,许万平、叶隐和万胜刚先生。作家艾晓明女士,也在同一天绝食。5月4日,共有6位志愿者绝食,他们的绝食声明,出现在各社交媒体和自媒体群组,引发民众关注。

接力志愿者哎乌告诉记者,开始绝食的当天,报名人数已超过60人。第二天超过100人,接力日期排到了8月3日。他们原本准备每人绝食一天,持续下去,直到郭飞雄先生得到治疗,恢复健康。但在5月4日晚,她得知郭飞雄4月7日住进监狱医院,再没有出来,也得不到治疗。而日前,郭飞雄的律师也未获准会见他。她公布消息后,更多人,纷纷要求参加绝食接力。

5 月 5日,接力志愿者增加到10人。他们的名字是:陈 冬、杨亚华、网友派大星、沈小甫、庞咏华、李发旺、杨展鹏、吕立春、房继尧、苏少凉。其中,沈小甫是一名年轻的异见人士,其余则多数是普通人。

5月6日,人数增加到11人,他们是陈冬、网友哎乌、 李智超、沈向东、 网友bruce(呆呆向前冲)、孙云月、张文强、潘建敏、杨敏敏、刘海宽、苍 鹰。其中,孙云月小姐是玫瑰团队成员。网友哎乌,负责此次活动的部分日程安排和登记。

中午有消息传出,在早上,郭飞雄的律师短暂的会见了他。过程约两分钟,狱方不让郭飞雄说话。因未能了解到郭飞雄的健康信息,律师向监狱方提出,要求安排郭飞雄在家人陪同下,去广东省的大医院诊断治疗。

哎乌预计,在会见消息传出后,绝食人数随后会下降,恢复到之前的每天一人。而5月7日,绝食人数则仍保持原定的7人。5月7日参加绝食的,是黎学文、王定邦、宋再民、王老香、网友天秤、徐秦、陆祚玉,共7人。其中,黎学文先生是作家,徐秦女士是玫瑰团队代理秘书长。

原定7号绝食的隋牧青律师,尚在取保候审,因国保威胁,而被迫退出绝食。另有三名接力志愿者,亦被国保上门传唤。而郭飞雄的姐姐,亦在5号晚,接到了阳春监狱的电话,称她在胡闹。

哎乌担心此次活动,在中国政府的打压消解下,会虎头蛇尾,收不到效果。但她随后称,在现阶段,任何形式的抗争,都是正确的,从表面看,也都是收效甚微的。

只是对健康人来说,美好明天可以等。郭飞雄先生的健康,却可能等不到那一天。所以,希望国际社会、人权组织关注郭飞雄先生的生命健康。志愿者们认为,拯救曾为理想舍命的他,值得努力。
