我的呼籲

2017/12/9 — 22:19

今天是《零八憲章》九周年,2008年12月8日午夜11點,一大幫警察湧向曉波和劉霞的家,擂門聲一陣緊似一陣。曉波從電腦前站起來,衝劉霞喊:“快打電話!”但劉霞平時不用電話。不到一分鐘,來不及了。劉霞說:“曉波開門吧。”

她早就有預感。并一次次提醒。

曉波是被黑布蒙住雙眼帶走的。一個多月後,暈頭轉向的劉霞被帶到一個賓館,在密閉房間中,他們重逢。曉波也是從另一個他不知道的地方,被帶到這兒的。

親愛的朋友,你走了,在伸手不見五指的黑暗中,你也能看見一絲光,你總是結結巴巴強調:“我看,看,看到了。”我們沒看到。劉霞說她也沒看到。她最近的一組攝影叫《孤獨星球》,你,我,我們,她,都是孤獨星球。

你在臨終之際,兩條腿上上下下地走著,不停的,不停的,不停的走著。直至一個多小時後,呼吸和脈搏都嘎然而止。

你在那個孤獨星球。而劉霞這些年為你買的書,還躺在書櫃裏。你最大遺憾是劉霞不能出國,沒辦法找到本該屬於她的自由。所以我寫下這些話,并再次為她公開呼籲。

希望中國政府出於基本人道,依法釋放一個沒任何犯罪記錄的深度抑鬱患者。希望德國、美國、法國、英國等西方民主國家政府、人權組織與活動者們,為2010年諾貝爾和平獎得主的寡婦的自由,繼續與中國政府交涉。謝謝您們。

親愛的赫塔:
我蜷縮成一團
因為有人敲嚮了門
我的脖子開始變得僵硬
我卻不能離開
我自言自語
我要瘋了
我那麼孤單
我沒有權力說話
大聲說話
我像植物一樣活着
我像屍體一樣躺着

My Appeal

Today is the ninth anniversary of “Charter ‘08”. At eleven o’clock at night on the 8th of December 2008, a hoard of police officers flocked towards the home of Liu Xiaobo and Liu Xia. As the pounding on the door resounded through their home, Xiaobo got to his feet in front of his computer and shouted to Liu Xia: “Quick, make the call!” But Liu Xia normally didn’t use a phone…. There was no time. Liu Xia said: “Open the door, Xiaobo.”

She’d long had a premonition. And warned him often….

Xiaobo was led off with a black cloth over his eyes. Over a month later, a disoriented Liu Xia was taken to a hotel where they met again in a sealed room. Xiaobo was brought there from a place he did not know.

My dear friend, you’ve gone. In a darkness so black I can’t see the fingers of my extended hand, you could yet see a trace of light. You always insisted in a stammer: “I see, see, see it.” We didn’t see. Liu Xia says she also did not see. Her most recent group of photographs is called “Solitary Planets”, you, me, us, her, all solitary planets.

On the verge of departure, your two legs were moving up and down, ceaselessly, ceaselessly walking. Up until an hour or so later, till your breath and pulse abruptly halt.

You’re on that solitary planet. And the books Liu Xia bought you these last few years still lie in the bookcase. Your greatest regret was that Liu Xia was unable to leave the country, could not find the freedom that was properly hers. And so I write these words and publicly appeal for her freedom once more.

I hope the government of China, out of basic human decency and in accordance with the law, will release a person suffering deeply from depression who has never broken a law. I hope that Germany, the United States, France, Great Britain and other Western governments, human rights organizations and activists would continue to negotiate with the government of China for the freedom of the widow of the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize laureate.

Thank you all.

Dear Herta

I curl into a ball
As somebody knocks at the door
My neck starts to stiffen
But I can not leave
I speak to myself
I’m going mad
Too solitary
I have not the right to speech
To speak loudly
I live like a plant
I lie like a corpse
