Zhang Qing’s Letter to Guo Feixiong Urging Him to Stop His Hunger Strike

June 9, 2016

杨茂东,你好!

见字如面!

我对你的情况有大致的了解。我非常理解在这种极端的处境下你的绝食抗争,同时我也非常担心你的身体,担心你的生命安危,因此我和孩子们出外为你做了一些呼吁,见了不同的人。

有很多老师们、朋友们让我转达他们对你的问候,大家都很关心你的身体状况,对你的绝食抗议表达理解。你的要求也很合理,因为发生在你身上的人权问题,其根源还是政治制度问题。在这种制度下,政治犯的待遇最差。改善关押的所有的政治犯的待遇,这一点当局是能够做得到的事。这已经是很低的要求。

如果当局对的处境有改善,你认为最基本的必须的关押条件有改善,请你综合各种情况,考虑停止绝食,以后再根据实际情况再作其他讨论。

以前我对你说过西西在2013年8月你被关押后,她做了一首钢琴曲“The Cosmos”,她说这曲子是送给你的。她写时向我解释曲名是宇宙,翻译为中文应该是“星空”。她说,宇宙只是一个笼统的概念,而星空却是视觉的具体的宇宙的感觉。我们只有通过星空,才真正看见宇宙的博大。去年9月,一位欧洲的音乐出版人听到这曲子,并认为是很好的曲子。他通过朋友联系到我们,让我们授权他改编此曲为歌曲。现在他们已经改编为歌曲,在5月中旬给我们发来了初样,效果很好。他们还打算做得更好些。

你的一切努力都是真诚希望推进中国成为一个有平等人权、基本自由、尊严生活的社会,在什么时候这样的理念和努力都是正确的!

我和孩子们爱你,敬重你。请你停止绝食!

张青
