八九学生领袖唐柏桥英文自传即将出版

26 9月

【看中国9月4日讯】唐柏桥是中国和平民主联盟主席,现定居美国纽约,他的英文自传《我的两个中国》(“一个中国反革命的实录”)即将由美国普罗米修斯出版社出版,作者是唐柏桥、达蒙˙迪马科。

普罗米修斯出版社发表关于此书的新闻消息,全文如下:

此时此刻,很多中国人正在被中国政府关押和酷刑。这些人不是冷酷的罪犯、杀人犯、盗窃犯,也不是恐怖份子。他们并没有做错任何事。他们是学生领袖、记者、博客作者、人权活动家,甚至僧侣,他们唯一的“罪行”是想要民主,只是希望自己的声音在他们所致力改善的中国被听到。

普 罗米修斯出版社新闻表示,《我的两个中国》是这样其中一位政治犯撰写的回忆录。唐柏桥是中国现阶段最具影响力的持不同政见者之一,他的名字在天安门广场大 屠杀期间成为很著名。在过去21年来,他一直在中国民运的最前线奋战,他曾立下宏愿要继续奋战到自由中国的梦想得以实现。

1989年,唐 柏桥是在湖南组织民主运动的学生领袖。同年6月4日,中共镇压了那场他参与领导的运动,也就是现在人们所知的恶名昭彰的天安门大屠杀。接下来在全中国镇压 “反革命份子”过程中,中共发出了对他的通缉令。唐柏桥详细回顾了当他看到自己灰濛濛的脸出现在张贴于一个火车站的“通缉令”上时,他是多么地震惊。他企 图逃往澳门,但在过境前被当局抓捕。在监狱里,他目睹和经历了中世纪式的酷刑折磨,那种任何人都永远不应该有的经历。最终他在美国政府的帮助下,避难来到 美国。

唐柏桥当前在纽约过着流亡的生活。在全世界数以百万为自由与开放社会而奋战的人们中,他已成为生动的传奇人物。最近中国在世界舞台上崛起,使得中国政府残酷迫害本国人民的恶行面临越来越大的压力。

这本独特、及时、令人悬心、鼓舞人心的回忆录,将会令社会各阶层和所有关心人权、自由社会前途的人产生强烈共鸣。

My Two Chinas

The Memoir of a Chinese Counterrevolutionary

Baiqiao Tang with Damon DiMarco

At this moment, people in China are being imprisoned and tortured by their own government. These people are not hardened criminals, murderers, thieves, or terrorists. They’ve done nothing wrong. They are student leaders, journalists, bloggers, human rights activists, and monks whose only “crime” is that they want democracy. They want their voices to be heard in a nation they’ve helped to build.

My Two Chinas is the memoir of one such political prisoner. Baiqiao Tang is one of China’s most influential modern dissidents. Tang’s name became legendary during the time of the Tiananmen Square massacre. Over the past 21 years, he has remained on the front lines of the Chinese pro-democracy movement, where he has vowed to keep fighting until the dream of a free China is realized.

In 1989, Tang was a student leader organizing pro-democracy demonstrations in Hunan province. On June 4 of that year, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) quashed the movement Tang helped to lead in the now infamous Tiananmen Square massacre. During the nationwide crackdown that ensued against “counter revolutionaries,” the CCP issued a warrant for Tang’s arrest. Tang recalls in detail his shock upon seeing his face plastered on a “wanted” poster at a train station. He attempted to flee to Macau but was captured before he could cross the border. In prison, Tang witnessed and endured medieval tortures that no human should ever experience. Eventually, he escaped to America with help from the United States government.

Now living in exile in New York City, Baiqiao Tang has become a living legend among the millions of people worldwide who fight for a free and open society. China’s recent, stratospheric rise to prominence on the world stage has brought its government under increased pressure to account for its notorious human rights atrocities inflicted on its own people.

This unique, timely, suspenseful, and ultimately inspiring memoir will resonate with people from all walks of life and from all backgrounds who care about human rights and the future of free society.
