Message to the People of Hong Kong
June 4, 2021, 32nd Anniversary of the
Tiananmen Square Massacre
Reggie Littlejohn, Founder and President
Women’s Rights Without Frontiers
Warmest greetings to the people of Hong Kong. I am greatly humbled to address you on this somber anniversary.
My name is Reggie Littlejohn, founder and president of Women’s Rights Without Frontiers. We expose and oppose forced abortion and the sex selective abortion of baby girls in China. We stand with the people of Hong Kong in your fight for basic human rights.
I imagine that on June 4, you will be watching this with a heavy heart. No one has been more loyal and dedicated than you have in keeping the memory of the Tiananmen Square Massacre alive. For three decades, your massive, candlelight vigils in Victoria Park have been an inspiration to the world. You have remembered the freedom fighters who died on Tiananmen Square, so that their sacrifice would not be forgotten.
And now, you in Hong Kong are losing your own freedom. So many of your
bravest souls are now languishing in jail. It is a hallmark of a totalitarian regime that it slams its greatest heroes in jail.
And yet, you keep fighting bravely on. The Chinese Communist Party is trying to re-write history, to blot out the memory of June 4, 1989. They are banning the Vigil, changing textbooks and museum exhibits, promoting the lie that Hong Kong’s brilliant success belongs to the Chinese Communist Party.
The authorities have cited health concerns about the coronavirus as the “reason” the June 4 vigil will be banned. Everyone knows that is just an excuse.
If the CCP really cared about health, they would not have unleashed the
coronavirus on the world. They would not have forcibly aborted 400 million women and babies under the One Child Policy. They would not be executing prisoners of conscience to harvest their organs for transplant. They would not be committing genocide against the Uyghurs. And if the CCP really cared about health, they would not have massacred hundreds, or possibly thousands, of innocent victims on Tiananmen Square.
The CCP does not care about health. All they care about is expanding their power at your expense and at the expense of the whole world. They have no business hosting the Olympic Games in 2022. These Games should be moved or boycotted. We have launched a website, genocidegames.org, where you can sign a petition to move or boycott the Games. In fact, as I testified before the United States Congress a couple of weeks ago, I believe that all the 152 nations that are signatories to the 1948 Genocide Convention are required to boycott the Olympics, because they have committed themselves to punishing any nation that is committing genocide. And I believe that, because of its unleashing of the coronavirus, its theft of hundreds of billions in intellectual property, and its spreading of deadly fentanyl, the CCP should be designated as a transnational criminal organization.
You are so brave to speak truth to power from Chinese soil. Even if you can’t assemble in Victoria Park for a candlelight vigil, you can still hold a candlelight vigil in your own home. You can put a candle in your window. You can say a prayer for those who died on Tiananmen Square. You can pray for the God of the universe to intervene on behalf of Hong Kong.
The CCP wants everyone to believe that it has absolute power, but it does not. The CCP thinks that it is God, but it is not. And God will not be mocked.
The CCP can stop a vigil, but it cannot stop something even more powerful than a vigil. It cannot stop the power of the human heart lifted up in desperate prayer. It cannot stop the power of God, who loves you and answers your prayers. I believe that, if we all join together and fast and sacrifice and pray, in His time and in His miraculous way, the God of freedom will set you free.
I am with you, but far more important, God almighty – the God who created
heaven and earth — is with you in this battle. Thank you and God bless you.
