Chai Ling Joins Nancy Pelosi and Speaker John Boehner at Capitol to Commemorate 25th Anniversary of Tiananmen Square Massacre

On May 29, Chai Ling joined Speaker of the House John Boehner, Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, and many other human rights figures at the U.S Capitol to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Tiananmen Square Massacre. Ling gave a passionate speech about her experience at Tiananmen and called China to end its current human rights abuses so that the country can experience true freedom.

 

Below is Ling's speech:

 

It was 25 years ago, on the morning of June 4th, that I was with our last five thousand students at Tiananmen Square watching the tanks and troops moving towards us. We were risking our lives hoping America would come. Today, we rejoice that America is coming to the side of those who stand for freedom in China.  Thank you Speaker Boehner, Democratic Leader Pelosi, Chairman Royce, our faithful friend, Congressman Chris Smith, Chairman of the Human Rights Committee, and other leaders of this great country. History is being made today! I give thanks to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and the Almighty God, for He made it happen! I also thank my wonderful husband for his faithful service and leadership!

 

25 years ago, our struggle for freedom placed my colleagues and me on China's most wanted list. Some of us spent months and years in hiding and some spent months and years in prison. We lost much: families, possessions, education, freedom; some even lost their lives for a dream. That dream is a free, peaceful, and prosperous China.

 

That dream started on my birthday, April 15, 1989. The former Party General Secretary Hu Yao Bang died. He was a reformer admired by many and especially by us students. He spoke of China needing three reforms: Economic, Political and Spiritual. Among the other leaders of China, Mao believed in no reforms, Zhao Zi Yang believed in Economic and Political reforms (but was placed under house arrest for the rest of his life), and Deng Xiao Ping believed in only economic reform--and prevailed.

 

We went into Tiananmen Square calling for all three reforms. At the time, we could not even choose where to work after attending the top universities in China. We saw brutal abuses of human rights all around us. We saw corruption in high places, theft of the People's money, and abuse of the People's power. And even today, women in China cannot freely give birth to their children without a birth permit. So we cried out: “The country is our country, the people are our people. If we don’t act, who will?!” The tanks and troops crushed our movement, but it could not kill our dream.  

 

Over the past 25 years after the Tiananmen Massacre, China has developed into an economic dictatorship with little to no political reform. However, despite the brutal oppression and crackdown, China is going through a most powerful and unprecedented spiritual reform. Just as Jesus said, “Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God,” the human heart can’t be satisfied by materialism alone.

 

This is our path to a free China, as the Bible says, “Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom!” The tanks and troops can stop people from demonstrating on the streets, but they can never stop a hundred million people’s unceasing prayers. Today, no single power can hinder the arrival of God’s kingdom in China. Indeed, the freedom of the Chinese people is at hand!

 

So today I call to the leaders of China to choose freedom and embrace political and spiritual reforms. Thank you to the Congressional leaders for casting your vote and joining God in making history!
