Dear President Bush,
First of all I would like to express my heart-felt graditute to The United States for it’s long term commitment in defending the world’s democracy, freedom, and human rights. The reason I’m writing this letter is to call for your attention regarding my father’s situation.
My father Jia Jia is the former General Secretary of the Shanxi Provincial Association of Scientists and Technology Experts, who tried to seek asylum in Taiwan on October 24, after he left his tourist group in Taiwan and publicly announced his separation from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
The Taiwan government refused his request and deported him directly back to China via Hong Kong, where he managed to stay for 7 days before he was refused an extension on his visa and was forced to escape to Thailand.
During his stay in Hong Kong, my father tried to seek political asylum at the embassy of several countries including the US, all the Embassies have rejected his application. As the General Secretary of the Shanxi Provincial Association of Scientists and Technology Experts, my father enjoy high social status back in China, and have the chance to work mainly with high ranking CCP officials. He has been listening to the Voice of America for over 20 years and gained access to the news reported by Epochtimes in the past few years.
Last year he read about the news on the withdraw from CCP wave through the web, he personally knows that within the high ranking officials, a lot of them have the wish to withdraw from the CCP, but do not know the way to do so, he believes that the 14million withdraws from CCP as reported by the Global Service Centre for Quitting the CCP is way too little, which doesn’t quite reflect the situation in China.
As the offspring of a Guomingdang official and suffered most of his life with the constant reminder of terror and famine, my father has always wanted to do something about promoting the democracy in China; which he cannot see any room for this kind of work to be done inside China at the time being, under the cruel ruling of the totalitarian regime.
More than 200 years have passed ever since the United States claimed its independence as a democratic country, however, there remained 1.3 billion people who still lived under the tyranny of the CCP. In China, people have no basic human rights nor freedom, those who long for democracy and freedom face arrest, suppression, and persecution. The CCP is a direct challange to the world’s righteous force, the totalitarian regime shows no respect for the world’s opinion.
The CCP disrespect human rights and core values like democracy, freedom, and the regime has become an enormous threat to the world peace. Not only does the CCP poccess nuclear weapons, but it also support the North Korea on the nuclear weapon issue. The shocking comments of People’s Liberation Army Major General Zhu Chenghu (朱成虎) last year on the possiblity of CCP using nuclear weapons against the US in the event of any military conflict with the US over Taiwan.
A year later after his defection, the former Chinese diplomat Chen Yonglin (陈用林) said in an interview: “The Australian Government is very pragmatic, very realistic with its diplomatic dealings with the Communist Government”
He said that the Australian Government was wrong in its thinking that it needed to sacrifice values in order to trade with Beijing. The Chinese economy he says is more reliant on Australian resources.
Chen also mentioned last year about the foreign policy of the CCP which is to lure the Australian government so in case the CCP and the US go into war, Australia will not be on the US’s side
In his testimony before the US Congress last year, Chen once said that the CCP is an “evil cult,” and, “If businesses continue to deal with such a government(CCP)…it’s dangerous. Some day when the American people wake up, it will be too late.”
In my father’s case, the rejection he received from different embassies is a gloomy reflection that the world is under the heavy influence of the CCP, his escape to Hong Kong then to Thailand, his speech made in front of the Chinese Liaison office in Hong Kong, and the interviews he had done has encouraged the party members and the citizens inside China who has longed for democracy. The Withdrawal from CCP Service Centre has received words of encouragements and withdrawals lately as a result of the “Jia Jia effect”.
After the Tiananmen Massacre, the western countries started to trade actively with the CCP with the sincere hope that CCP would change and become more democratic in the course, but in reality the CCP has used economic bribe as lure for western countries to give up their core values in cooperation with the regime’s totalitarian ruling.
Thailand is not a safe place for my father as there are cases of assassination and kidnap of dissentients happened before due to the heavy influence of CCP on Thailand. Please help him and provide him with a safe platform so he can continue to work for the democracy of China.
No country or race can survive long without preserving its traditional values. China, under the ruling of the CCP, is a good example; all these movements that took place before and after the CCP came into ruling in China aimed at destroying the traditional values of the Chinese society, if the world continue to allow it’s moral values be erode away during the course of it’s trade with the CCP, today’s China will become the future of the international community where the world becomes the playground of the CCP. The world will have real democracy only when China has democracy!
Thank you for your kind attention!
Jia Kuo (Jia Jia’s son)
