Germany: "Broadcasting Month for the Rescue of Xiong Wei" Running Smoothly

January the 5th 2004 marks the 2nd anniversary of Xiong Wei’s illegal detention in Beijing’s Xin-An Female Labour Camp. Before being imprisoned in China, she had studied in Germany for six years. January 5th 2004 is the day she is supposed to be released. Subsequent to practitioners’ recent rescue efforts, including bicycle tour and a “Week of Calling China”, German practitioners have planned a series of activities this December to speed up and support Xiong Wei’s release.

December the 8th is Xiong Wei’s birthday and December the 10th is World Human Rights Day, so practitioners decide to name this December “Broadcasting Month for Rescuing Xiong Wei”. The main approach is to give a song to German Radio Stations entitled “Free Xiong Wei”, which was written and composed by a western Falun Gong practitioner. This is an effective way to let the German people learn more about Xiong Wei's illegal detention.

After listening to practitioners’ introduction about the persecution of Falun Gong and Xiong Wei’s detention in China, the management of the radio station decided to broadcast the song. The broadcast was made on Xiong Wei’s birthday as a birthday blessing. German people who listened to the song on the radio had the opportunity to learn about Xiong Wei and the facts of the persecution against Falun Gong in China. Another radio station also broadcast Xiongwei’s story and sent their blessings to her.

During the “Week of Calling China” several months ago, this song was aired in China over the telephone. The following is the English translation of the song.

Xiong Wei, a 32-year-old female studied at Berlin Technical University until 1999. On the 5th January 2002, while distributing material about the persecution of Falun Gong, she was arrested in Beijing.

Xiong Wei for many only a name, which one hears, forgets.
Xiong Wei the whole world needs to know, where you are.
You have been put behind barb wire and walls.
There is no freedom, no law, no justice.

Ooooooooohh, we will support you!
Ooooooooohh, we will support you!

(Narrative in Chinese)

Even though we are far apart, our hearts are with you. Let’s hold fast to truth and justice. Let’s safeguard truthfulness-compassion-forbearance.

(Male solo in German)

Ooooooooohh, we breathe together with you.
Let us send out our voice,
Use the power of faith and let go of apathy,
Help you return to freedom.

(Narrative in Chinese)

Let our voice spread across space to deliver a common wish: Stop the persecution!

(Male solo in German)

The lies against Falun Gong are spread everywhere in China,
People are deceived and human rights are suppressed,
China's leadership is now only spreading lies about Falun Gong.
Xiong Wei, you were not willing to keep quiet about that.
You only wanted to show people the truth behind the lies.

Ooooooooohh, we will support you!
Ooooooooohh, we will support you!
