2019 June 5th update: Ming Pao (with video), “【六四30年.短片】「天安門母親」成員張先玲講話全文

“今日(4日)是六四事件30年,也是一眾「天安門母親」在被監視下生活的30年,支聯會六四燭光悼念集會上播放「天安門母親」群體成員講話短片。以下是成員張先玲在北京所發表的講話。

尊敬的香港同胞們:
尊敬的歷年來從世界各地趕來參加維園燭光晚會的有良知的朋友們:

我們代表「天安門母親」群體向你們致以最崇高的敬意和衷心的感謝!

三十年來,維園的燭光陪伴著「天安門母親」們走過了坎坷的歷程,溫暖着我們的心!

天安門慘案已經過去了三十年。但那個血腥的夜晚,北京上空激烈的槍聲、坦克的橫衝直撞、穿梭的救護車、市民們為了保護學生對戒嚴部隊視死如歸的沿途攔截、鼎沸的人聲以及親人們最後的身影,至今,我們記憶猶新,永遠定格在我們的腦海裏,深深地刻在我們的心底。

我們痛苦過、悲傷過,如今巨大的悲痛已化為支撐我們抗爭的動力!

這樣血腥的慘案,和平時期動用軍隊在中國歷史上絕無僅有!劊子手們將永遠被釘在歷史的恥辱柱上,決不是一句輕鬆的「政治風波」就能夠抹去!更不是所謂「動亂」「暴亂」就可以作為軍隊鎮壓的理由,這樣的謊言是掩蓋不了血寫的事實!

三十年來,「天安門母親」群體不畏強權,櫛風沐雨、砥礪前行。追尋遇難者的蹤跡,為的就是要討還公道,就是要說出真相、拒絕遺忘、呼喚良知,尋求正義!

雖然這三十年來,我們找到的遇難者只是冰山一角,但僅此一角已能證明「六四」鎮壓的殘酷!這樣一次由執政黨主導、政府下令,調動大批野戰軍乘著裝甲車、軍車、坦克,真槍實彈,在首都街頭殺害手無寸鐵的、和平示威的學生和市民!這是甚麼行為?是不折不扣的草芥人命!殺人者竟是國家的正規軍!這是政府指使下的殺人!是國家的犯罪!

三十年來,「天安門母親」們本着和平、理性的原則,堅持:真相、賠償、問責三項訴求,多次就「六四」慘案通過法律解決向政府提出對話,但執政當局一直不敢面對,不敢回答。卻在公開場合用一句「黨和政府已有定論。」的囈語,作為遁詞。這樣一件在全世界眾目睽睽之下發生的慘案,豈是少數領導人一句話就能將事實抹殺掉的。歷史證明:真相終將戰勝謊言,正義必將戰勝邪惡!

雖然,「天安門母親」群體中已有五十六位難屬離去。但我們活著的人,將一如既往,承擔起逝者的責任,不管路有多崎嶇,我們將奮力向前!

感謝香港市民和朋友們對我們的支持!”

中共的正常與非正常 – 李怡

May 3, 2012

For the record 李怡’s article. See also Guardian (May 3), “Chen Guangcheng: ‘I want to leave China as soon as possible’ – video

絲絲世語:中共的正常與非正常 – 李怡 – 2012年05月04日

中國官員向美國口頭保證陳光誠離開美使館會安全,承諾「允許陳光誠過正常的生活」,允許陳光誠同家人團聚,允許他在一個大學城開始新的生活,還允許美國官員去探望他。美方未必相信中方承諾,但有了這承諾就有了放掉這燙手山芋的下台階。陳光誠離開美使館,沒有病也去了醫院,中美高層的戰略和經濟對話於是開幕也。
陳光誠的妻子兒女在中共手裏形同人質,中共公安虐待他妻子,威脅要殺死她,逼她勸陳光誠離開美使館。陳光誠不可能相信中共的承諾,但為了妻兒的安全和團聚,他不能不離開使館。
中國外交部譴責「美國駐華使館以非正常的方式將中國公民陳光誠帶入使館」。實際上是中國「以非正常的方式將陳光誠逼離美使館」。中共「正常」與「非正常」的邏輯都與全球正常人相反。


Israel’s Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon Google+ Hangout at Fox LA

May 3, 2012

Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon - Fox LA Google+ Hangout - pix 08

It was my great pleasure to G+ Hangout with Israel’s Deputy Foreign Minister+Danny Ayalon (Wikipedia) hosted by +Maria Quiban +Tshaka Armstrong at+myFOXla / FOX Los Angeles. The following is my question to Mr. Ayalon (I added a few words to give the readers some context).

Question: I understand you just attended the Jerusalem Post conference [in New York on Sunday Apr 29th]. And I’ve watched a video of sparks flying between Environmental Minister Gilad Erdan, and Meir Dagan, former chief of Mossad [national intelligence agency of Israel].

My question is about your view on the idea of an Israeli pre-emptive strike of Iran. Do you agree with Meir Dagan that [I paraphrase] “War is the the kind of thing where we know how it starts, but not how it will end” and Israel should exhaust all other means first before considering war?

Here is the full hangout video and you can watch my question and Mr. Ayalon’s answer (at 14:33 mark)

Background & Research material

The following are part of the research materials I gathered in order to ask an informed question. I tried to be as fair and as diplomatic as I could when asking my question without losing anything important in my question.

* May 1st, 2012 Jerusalem Post report of The Jerusalem Post Conference “Dagan and Erdan’s caustic exchange at the ‘Post’ Conference“. I’ve excerpted part of the exchange from a transcript of the acrimonious argument in a panel discussion on Israel’s security situation. To better understand the tone and context, I also found and watched a video clip of part of the exchange on YouTube. I think you get a sense of the heat from reading the words. (note: emphasis added, pix of Mr. Dagan via CBS 60 Minutes)

The Spymaster - Meir Dagan on Iran's threat - CBS 60 Minutes

An excerpt from “Dagan and Erdan’s caustic exchange at the ‘Post’ Conference“,

Keinon [Jerusalem Post’s diplomatic reporter]: But do you think it’s appropriate for him to make those kind of comments? He could have made them when he was the head of the Shin Bet (the Israel Security Agency)?

Dagan: First of all, I think he presented his position loudly and clearly about his refusal to the prime minister and defense minister. He didn’t announce it. It was in a closed room. To speak openly? (Turning to Gilad Erdan) I heard that a member of your party is now formulating a law… on behalf of my name, Dagan, preventing ex-people of the military and security establishment from speaking. Let me remind you of something, sir, what was started in Germany in the beginning.

You know how you are starting it; you don’t know how it is ending.

About Diskin, I believe that he is a very serious man and he is presenting a very serious point of view. And I know that serious point of view was presented to the prime minister and defense minister on many occasions.

[…] Erdan: Thank you very much, but I know that the Shin Bet is under the Prime Minister’s Office. (laughter) I also used to work there 15 or 16 years ago.

But the minister of defense still works together [with the prime minister], and if Yuval Diskin thought the prime minister was doing things so dangerous for the future of Israel, so in order to save Israel, he should resign, and not wait five years as head of the Shin Bet and then even agree to serve one more year.

And then, when resigning and when the prime minister does not accept his guy to be appointed as head of the Shin Bet…

Dagan:It’s not true. (boos) You are lying, sir. I am maybe not polite, but I prefer ministers of the State of Israel who speak the truth.

Erdan: I prefer that former heads of Mossad and Shin Bet won’t make damage to Israel…. That’s what I expect from you. Mr. Netanyahu goes around the world, and he never says that we are going to attack Iran, or when or where, but he is doing a lot of efforts in order to raise the awareness, and it is working.”
