China: Diary of a Disappearance – Reflections after my Release

Liu Dejun is a Chinese human rights defender who began his human rights works by educating migrant workers in a factory in Guangzhou about their rights and Chinese labour laws.  He was subsequently fired, after which he started to write essays about human rights and democracy for online publication.  In 2007 he set up a NGO providing legal assistance and education to migrant workers and the following year he was detained for ten days after giving out leaflets in Guangzhou calling for political reform.  In 2009 he turned his attention to the rights of petitioners in Beijing and was involved in a number of high profile human rights cases.  In 2010 he was abducted by the police in the middle of the night, beaten up, driven a mountainous area in the suburbs of Beijing and dumped on a roadside.  The artist Ai Weiwei later made a documentary (Chinese only) about these events. 
Liu Dejun persisted in his human rights work and in 2011 he was one of dozens of human rights defende…

我茉莉花期间被绑架酷刑关押的经历(中文/English)

我出来了,但所有东西,身份证、护照、港澳通行证、银行卡、手机、电脑被收走,没有给任何手续,也没让我回北京租住屋,里面的一切东西都没带出。在北京山 里被转移了四个地方,受到电击等酷刑,又转往北京市第一看守所(不告诉看守所我的姓名籍贯,只给了个代号2-2011-2,说是保密案件,),关押了12 天后,又转往武汉市第一看守所,然后他们让我父亲签字做保人取保候审,期限一年,要我先住在父母家,不准离开随州(出生地,父母居住地)、襄樊(户籍所在 地),不准联系维权界朋友,不然就追究我父亲的刑事责任。交待村干部和党员、邻居监视我,每天由村干部向国保汇报我的情况。下面是我写的被绑经过。因没电 脑了,我在网吧不敢写多,将分段写下。 
2。27日早上6:47,北京西客站,我下了武汉到北京的火车,经过上夜的长途旅行,早餐还没吃。因为才农历正月十八,进京的人员很多,我本来二十号就在武汉买票,但被告知最早的卧铺票只有26日晚的,而且还是上铺。下车后人多,好不容易看到到北出口,已经离七点只有几分钟了,下台阶时,有一个子不高的年轻人拿着相机举得高高的拍摄,明显不是拍他附近的已经到了台阶下层的人,而是对着刚到台阶最上层的我,我就注意上他了。当我下了台阶走过他后,他又快跑到我前面继续拍摄我,我就确定是在拍我了。我就边上另一个很短的台阶,边发推,当时手机信号已经不畅了,发了好多次推也不知道是否发出去了。同时我注意到一个个子不高,大概不到一米七的样子,瘦瘦的,留着络腮胡子,下巴前翘,穿蓝色羽绒服的人在跟踪我,出门后发现天下着小雪,我在出站后拍了这个跟踪者的照片,但无法发送出去,随后我发现他和那个拍照者是一伙的,就尝试发没有他照片的文字,但一直显示发送失败,但上帝保佑,我出来后发现那两条推已经发出去了。
随后我就到西客站前的公交站处准备坐车回五道口我的住处,但因为我钥匙因去香港及回大陆后滞留了一大段时间而找不到了,但我留有备用钥匙在五道口一个因爬山认识的教师处,就打电话问他是是否在家,并说了被人跟踪的事,当时我认为没事,以为他们跟踪是为了防止我去王府井,就告诉该教师说没事,并说我先去他家,他告诉我他下午才有时间,我就说那我先过去找待着等他。
说完我就排队准备坐公交车。约五分钟后,到了车前,我正准备从站台下到路上好上车时,左边一个高个子挤我,我说别挤,排队啊,他挤不动我,这时右边一个高个也拉我,我还奇怪,…
