国际团结日声援中国艾滋病工作者活动的图片以及卫生部官员说话了

他们有一个标语的中文意思是:“抵抗艾滋病,而不是抵抗艾滋病工作者”。
 
 China AIDS chief knows nothing of missing activist

 
    BEIJING, March 22 (Reuters) – China’s top AIDS official said on Wednesday that he had no idea where a missing Chinese activist was, but said the government had a very good relationship with private groups involved in fighting the disease.
 
    Hu Jia, 32, went missing after going on a hunger strike with several others to protest what they said was the government’s hiring of thugs to beat up a civil rights campaigner in the southern province of Guangdong in February.
 
    Hu has also been critical of the government’s AIDS policy and its efforts to help AIDS victims and their families.
 
    His wife and friends have been trying to locate him since he vanished over a month ago, but police and state security have refused to confirm of deny if they are holding him. "There are 1.3 billion people in China, and you ask me where one person is? How am I supposed to know?" Vice Health Minister Wang Longde, who is also China’s top AIDS official, told reporters on the sidelines of a World Health Organisation meeting.
 
    "We have very good cooperation with private groups in the fight against AIDS. We believe that in this fight you cannot just rely on the government," the vice minister said, before outlining a series of official measures taken to battle the disease.
 
    He declined to answer any more questions on Hu.
 
    Hu’s case has attracted the attention of the lead U.N. agency against AIDS, UNAIDS, and rights group Amnesty International.
 
    "We are very much aware of this person," Henk Bekedam, the WHO’s chief representative in China, told reporters. "We have spoken to the government and are following it up. We have not received any specific details about his whereabouts."
 
    China recorded its first outbreak of AIDS in 1989. During the 1990s, many people — notably in the central province of Henan — contracted the virus through contaminated blood transfusions.
 
    Last year, there were about 25,000 deaths from AIDS across China. In January, Beijing lowered by about 30 percent its estimate of the number of people living with HIV/AIDS, yet warned against complacency, saying that the figure was still rising with people unaware of the danger.
 
尊敬的高强部长:
我是红树林支持组织负责人李想,早上看到这个消息令我感到十分震惊。
 
我不知道您是否能看到这个消息,做为一名普通的、爱国的中国人,我不希望我的国家被认为是压制民主、遏制民众声音和抑制民权运动的国家,每次我出国的时候,在谈到中国人权问题,我都会和他们据理力争,我把他们所谈到的问题理解为是我们发展过程必然要出现的问题,和东西方文化和社会制度差异的问题,哪怕我这么做仅仅是出于潜意识不肯相信和接受这个现实的心理;做为一名参与艾滋病防治和关怀工作的民间团体负责人,我不希望国家、卫生部和所有参与艾滋病防治的机构和个人的努力,包括您个人的努力和承诺所建立起来的应对艾滋病流行的积极的政府形象,被地方警察为制造当地的和谐假象而滥用职权的行为毁坏殆尽。这样只能使中国的艾滋病防治、宣传和关怀工作陷于被动的境地,这不是所有人包括我为此工作了6年所希望看到的。
为了您带领卫生部在艾滋病防治工作上所做出的努力,致以一个感染了12年的艾滋病人的敬意!
李想 敬上

Dear Friends,

About 30 people came out to demand the release of Hu Jia and other human rights defenders at our action at the Chinese Consulate on Wednesday. Activists from New York, Philadelphia, and Long Island protested and attempted to deliver a letter to President Hu. Participants included AIDS activists, China scholars, gay rights activists, and medical students.

Here’s a roundup of the press we got for the NY action:
(for photos of this action and our sister actions in Paris and DC, go to
www.aidspolicyproject.org)

Chinese-language newspapers:
(later I will post them both in Chinese and English)
1. Ming Pao
gave us a huge picture (1/4 page, above the fold) and an article
2. Singtao picture and article

3. World Journal
picture and article

Radio:
1. WBAI
News good 3.5min segment, actually aired today 3/24 instead of day of action due to scheduling issues, will rebroadcast at 11pm tonight

TV:

1. MTV News interviewed many of us, stayed ’til the end, supposed to give me a tape
2. RAI
(Italian TV) interviewed many of us

Newsletter:
7. Housing Works

As much as we think our actions in NY, DC, and Paris went well, we all know there’s a lot more to be done. We’re thinking of Hu Jia and others who have tirelessly fought for human rights. Their courage is inspiring to us all.

Let’s discuss what our next steps are.

In solidarity,
Laurie

  1. 巍玮说道:

    这个世界总有一些人做着让看客们觉得很傻的事情,当然,如果看客们不觉得做这些事情很傻,他们也不再是看客,而一旦理解了这些事情,也就理解了微子何以出奔,谭嗣同何以喋血。但在出奔和喋血之外,努力活着,努力作些有意义的事情,应该比前两者更难,也更可贵。毫无疑问,胡佳正在做着的,正是这难而可贵的事情。
    王守仁的弟子曾问王守仁何谓不朽,王守仁说:你看颜回,一生潦倒,似乎过得很不顺当,但千百年后的我们,仍能知道颜回的事迹和思想,象颜回这样,可谓不朽。
    所以,如此足以不朽的其人其事,我绝不同情,甚至于还有些艳羡。面对当前的苦难,想想周文王因暴政而有羑里之囚,汉高祖因暴政而亡命芒砀,十二月党人因暴政而流放西伯利亚。千百年下来,暴政已逝,而斯人长存!佛经上说恭敬顶礼,称念南无阿弥陀佛,即可见殊胜光明。这种说法,我是不信的,不历恒河沙劫,何来明照世间!
    窗外又开始飘起了小雨,又来一个降温过程了罢?但应该这是最后的寒冷了吧。毕竟,桃花的朵都已经打好,就等着开放了!
