丁子霖:致函奥巴马总统

    
     来源:参与 作者:丁子霖
    
    
    尊敬的奥巴马总统:
    
    我是一个中国知识分子,一个在二十年前北京“六四”大屠杀中痛失爱子的母亲。
    
    首先,我祝贺您荣获本年度诺贝尔和平奖,并预祝您在未来的岁月里能为维护世界和平、推动人类进步,以及践行美国立国之本作出杰出的贡献。
    
    在您即将于十一月中旬访华前夕,我冒昧地给您写这封信,请求您在此次访华期间运用您的政治智慧和影响力,营救目前身陷囹圄的中国大陆自由知识分子刘晓波博士。
    
    据我所知,世界上一些民主国家和地区的正义之士、议会人士,都先后以不同方式、通过不同途径要求中国政府释放刘晓波博士;尤其是在10月1日中共建政60周年当天,美国众议院以410票的绝对多数票通过了要求释放刘晓波博士的决议案。在此,我热切地期盼您不负众望,加入到这个营救行列中来。作为当今世界最大民主国家的总统,您的举措,将起到举足轻重的作用。
    
    一向以来,刘晓波博士不仅勇敢、热情、执着地追求民主的信念,而且始终不渝地以温和、理性的态度去争取这种信念的实现。在已经过去的二十年中,他数度遭中国政府当局逮捕入狱,最近一次是他于2008年底参与起草并发起签署著名的“零八宪章”。然而,导致此次拘捕的更为深层的原因,是他始终怀有一种“六四情结”,对于涉及“六四”的人和事,无论从道义上还是良心上,一直想争取做点什么,致使他走上了一条独立的自由知识分子的不归路。但这究竟是谁之罪?
    
    逮捕刘晓波博士是近年来中国大陆所发生的一起最典型的 “以言获罪”。以警察之暴力去剥夺一位公民的言论和人身自由,此类事情竟众目睽睽地发生在二十一世纪的泱泱大国——中国,这恐怕是任何一个文明国家的首脑——尤其是美国的首脑无法容忍的!我期望总统先生向中国的领导人传达这样一个强烈的讯息:美国不支持压制言论自由的政权。
    
    在您此次访华期间,中国广大的《零八宪章》签署者、千百万热爱自由、追求民主的人们,将以热切的眼光注视着您的一言一行,如果在您的这次访问中认为中国政府对于人权的践踏可以忽略,不必提及,那将不仅是对中国所有的政治羁押者及其家人权益的漠视,也将严重伤害中国公民的感情。以往人类所经历过的惨痛教训难道还少吗?
    
    为此,我基于一个知识分子的良知,基于一个受难母亲的悲痛给总统先生写这封信。无论您是否同意我的见解,请一定慎思而行。
    
    预祝您访问成功!
    
     丁子霖 2009.11.12日

    此信的英译已于11月5日直接送交美国人权助理国务卿,并由她转交奥巴马总统。
    
    

Ding Zilin: Letter to President Obama
    
    Dear President Obama,
    
    I am a Chinese intellectual, a mother who lost her beloved son in the June Fourth
    
    Massacre in Beijing 20 years ago.
    
    First, I would like to congratulate you on receiving the Nobel Peace Prize this year,
    
    and I look forward to your outstanding contributions to maintaining world peace,
    
    promoting the advancement of humanity, and putting America’s founding principles into
    
    practice.
    
    On the eve of your trip to China in November, I am taking the liberty of writing to
    
    you with a request that you use your political wisdom and influence to save Dr. Liu
    
    Xiaobo, the imprisoned Chinese independent intellectual.
    
    To my knowledge, legislators and fighters for justice from several democratic
    
    countries and regions across the world have used various approaches and channels to
    
    demand that the Chinese government release Dr. Liu Xiaobo. In particular, the U.S.
    
    House of Representatives passed a resolution demanding the release of Dr. Liu with an
    
    absolute majority of 410 votes on October 1 this year, the 60th anniversary of the rule of
    
    the Communist regime in China. I therefore sincerely hope that you will not disappoint
    
    everyone’s expectations and that you will join in the rescue effort. As the president of the
    
    largest democratic country in the world, your actions will play a decisive role.
    
    Dr. Liu Xiaobo has not only pursued democratic principles with courage, passion,
    
    and persistence, but has also steadfastly fought to achieve these principles with
    
    moderation and reason. He has been arrested and jailed many times over the past 20 years.
    
    Most recently, he was detained for taking part in the drafting of, and being an initial
    
    signatory to, the famous Charter 08 at the end of 2008. However, the deeper reason for
    
    his current arrest is his longstanding “June Fourth Complex.” That is, Dr. Liu has kept
    
    trying to do something for those involved with the June Fourth Incident, whether out of
    
    ethical concerns or his good heart. His actions have propelled him onto an independent
    
    intellectual’s path of no return. But, in the final analysis, who is at fault?
    
    The arrest of Dr. Liu Xiaobo is representative of a whole series of “speech crimes”
    
    that have occurred in the Chinese mainland in recent years. That the police can, by brute
    
    force, deprive a citizen of his rights to freedom of speech and liberty of the person, and
    
    that this can happen in the glare of the public eye in the 21st century in a great country
    
    like China, must be intolerable to the leader of any civilized nation, especially the leader
    
    of the United States of America! I hope, Mr. President, that you will relay a strong
    
    message to the Chinese leaders: the United States does not support regimes that suppress
    
    the freedom of speech.
    
    During your visit to China, numerous Charter 08 signatories and millions of those
    
    who love freedom and pursue democracy will eagerly watch your every move. If you
    
    think that one can overlook the Chinese government’s trampling of human rights and
    
    choose not to raise the issue during your visit, you will not only be ignoring the rights and
    
    interests of China’s political prisoners and their families, but will also seriously hurt the
    
    feelings of the Chinese people. Hasn’t the human experience provided enough painful
    
    lessons in the past?
    
    This is why, with the conscience of an intellectual and as a grieving, victimized
    
    mother, I’m writing this letter to you today. Whether you agree with my views or not,
    
    please let careful consideration inform your actions.
    
    Wishing you a successful visit,
    
    Ding Zilin
