Party has warned the West and supporters of Hong Kong’s pro democracy movement that ‘Eyes will be plucked out’. They should remember that it was Chen Guangchen, a courageous blind Chinese man – a man without eyes – who was one of the first to see through them.
Chen is a barefoot lawyer who bravely exposed the horrors of the CCP’s cruelty in Shandong Province where they had forcibly aborted or sterilised 130,00- women who were in breach of their one child policy.
For daring to challenge the CCP, Chen was incarcerated in prison for four years – denied contact with his family, friends, or other prisoners. Then he was put under house arrest.
Following a “Shawshank” escape he and his family were finally allowed to leave.
Chen came as a guest to the UK Parliament and we awarded him the Westminster Award for Human Rights, Human Life, and Human Dignity.
Chen Guangchen didn’t need eyes to see what the rest of the world now needs to clearly see .
