‘I Will Treat The Chinese Consulate as My Husband’s Cemetery’

Three years after prominent human rights lawyer Gao Zhisheng disappeared from his cave dwelling home in the northern Chinese province of Shaanxi, his wife has called on the Chinese government to hand over his remains, as she believes he must be dead.

Gao’s wife Geng He, who escaped to the U.S. with her son and daughter in January 2009, made the statement outside the Consulate General of the People’s Republic of China in San Francisco on April 19.

“I underestimated the evil of the Chinese Communist Party,” Gao’s wife Geng He wrote in a statement published to her Twitter account. “I don’t have any dreams now. I only hope that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) can return Gao Zhisheng’s ashes to me for humanitarian reasons.”

She read out a statement saying that she has had no news of any kind regarding the 57-year-old Gao’s whereabouts or well-being in the three years since his last “disappearance.”

“[Gao] has been detained and persecuted by the CCP for 16 years, during which he was tortured, imprisoned in solitary confinement or subjected to several forcible disappearances,” Geng said. “He hasn’t had a single day of freedom.”

“In the past three years ago, Gao Zhisheng has disappeared from house arrest,” she said. “There have been no phone calls, no information. Nobody knows anything about him. It’s as if he evaporated.”

She said the Yulin police department in the northern province of Shaanxi had admitted to holding him at the start of this month, but denied Geng any opportunity to speak with him.

“I now have a premonition that is getting stronger and stronger, which is that Gao Zhisheng has been persecuted to death,” she said. “Otherwise, he would definitely have found a way to contact us.”

“Standing here today, I am no longer the wife of a Chinese political prisoner,” Geng said. “I have no political views.”

“I once imagined that I would return to China soon and live with him; I also imagined that after he was released from his sentence, he could come to the United States to help me share the responsibilities of the family and make up for our children’s lack of parental love,” she said.

No relative has met Gao in three years

“Maybe that was naive of me.”

“Gao Zhisheng suffered because he loved China too much,” Geng said. “It was his glory to be buried in our motherland. From this day onwards, I will treat the CCP’s Consulate, the closest one to my home, as his cemetery.”

“I will be bringing our children here to pay our respects from this day forward, at the start and middle of every month, and on the Qing Ming [grave-tending] Festival, until the day I die,” she said.

Gao, once a prominent lawyer feted by the ruling Chinese Communist Party, began to be targeted by the authorities after he defended some of China’s most vulnerable people, including Christians, coal miners, and followers of the banned Falun Gong spiritual movement.

Gao was arrested and sentenced for “inciting subversion of state power,” and was subsequently “disappeared” several times before finally being sent to serve his sentence.

Geng had earlier called on the Chinese government to allow her to go back to China and be jailed alongside him.

Geng told RFA in an interview earlier this month that none of Gao’s relatives had been allowed to meet with him in three years, with police citing coronavirus restrictions since last year.

“It’s not just that there is no news of Gao Zhisheng; the authorities’ persecution of his family has been very severe too,” she said. “The ID cards of everyone in the family have been confiscated by the authorities over the past 10 years, so that they aren’t able to leave their local area, let alone go looking for him.”

How to identify Fake News or Messages on Social Media 

Beware of Fake News and Fake Messages on Social Media

Always follow websites or social media platforms of traditional media outlets whether newspapers, magazines,Television News Channels or Radio Stations and authentic online only media outlets.They still maintain journalism excellence and stress on reportorial talent.On the other hand, fake news websites run by people with non journalism background and promote their own ideology with fake news and disinformations and obviously conspiracy theories.

But unfortunately mainstream media also manipulates news to establish their story angle.There were various instances when News papers and TV Channels promoted fake news/conspiracy theories in the form of out of context or manipulated pictures/videos and distorted informations.

Always check the URL of any website.Some fake news websites look like the orginal and popular one the same layout,Logo but if you check the URL you may find extra words like if the orginal website's URL is www.xxx.com the duplicate one might be www.xxx.com.co or something like that so first check the URL for authentic informations.

Check whether photos are original or photoshopped.Check Google images for authenticity.You can find help from Google Reverse Images search.

Check the news sources from other websites whether they picked up the story or not.

Whether the website layout is little bit clumsy and obviously grammatical mistakes and spelling mistakes and excessive use of Sex related and sensational and hate stories.Because sex and hate sells.

Follow official websites relating to COVID-19

WHO Clarifies the disinformation about the virus:
COVID-19 virus can be transmitted in areas with hot and humid climates
Cold Weather and Snow can not kill the new coronavirus
Taking a Hot Bath Does Not Prevent COVID-19
COVID-19 Can not be transmitted through mosquito bites

Spraying alcohol or chlorine all over your body will not kill viruses that have already entered your body. Spraying such substances can be harmful to clothes or mucous membranes (i.e. eyes, mouth)

According to World Health Organization (WHO): Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water

Maintain at least 1 metre (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.

Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth . If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early.

Stay at home if you begin to feel unwell, even with mild symptoms such as headache and slight runny nose, until you recover.

Follow WHO guidelines

www.who.int

When you follow COVID-19 related news and messages from social media then check and recheck it before consuming it.Follow journalism mantra: if your mother says she loves you, check it out.

Most of the messages or informations quote different organizations like WHO, UNICEF, UNDP,Cambridge University  or other well known institutes,organizations or individual to authenticate the messeges.Check official websites of these organizations  if stories are repeated there

Forwarding messages from unknown sources or little known sources, it would be better to ignore it.

Check whether any logo like UNICEF or WHO or other organizations used in the messages which look similar to original logo.

These type of messages are full of Grammatical mistakes and spelling mistakes which are quite uncommon in original messages.

Some fake messages pretend to be real one like unofficial Twitter handle of international media organizations like BBC,CNN,Washinton Post, New York Times-check the official Twitter handles of media outlets.

You can identify fake messages if the message requests you to share it.
