Editor’s note: In 2007 the Chinese civil rights lawyer Gao Zhisheng wrote the article “Dark Night, Dark Hood, and Kidnapping by Dark Mafia,” which gives a harrowing account of 50 days of torture he endured at the hands of Chinese security agents in September, October, and November 2007. The article was released for publication after Gao was once again arrested on Feb. 6, 2009. Gao’s wife, Geng He, recently discovered the prologue to “Dark Night,” the article “Speaking From My Heart.” She has authorized The Epoch Times to publish it for the first time in English.
Under Heaven’s watchful eye, and amidst the vast free and civilized world, there is no evil that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) would shy away from or is incapable of. It is truly shocking! Continue reading
Dark Night, Dark Hood and Kidnapping by Dark Mafia
– My account of more than 50 days of torture in 2007
These words from me today will be finally revealed one day. They will expose the true face of today’s China and will disclose the unimaginable heart and characteristics of the “ruling party” in China.
Of course, these words will inevitably bring unpleasant and even disturbed, embarrassed feelings to those global “good friends” and “nice partners” of today’s Chinese Communist Party—IF these global “good friends” and “nice partners” still have some concern in their hearts for the value of human conscience and morality.

After working around the clock for more than ten days, I can now take a break. I have finished this course of investigation into the truth about the brutal persecution, ordered by the Chinese authorities, that those who believe in freedom have suffered the past few years.
Because my wife and child remain at home alone, and because they are being watched 24 hours a day by the most notorious and most immoral police–police who know no bad things that they dare not do–every second of my spare time has been filled with agonizing worry. May God keep them safe! Continue reading
Today [March 4]’s hunger strike has been very difficult—and there are still several hours to go.
Already today I’ve spent twenty-nine minutes wrestling with secret agents determined to steal my cell phone. After resisting them as best I could, they succeeded in stealing the phone and then called the police and had me detained for nearly two hours. After all of the physical exertion from battling with the attackers I am feeling much hungrier than usual. Today’s fast will be difficult indeed. Continue reading
These days, it seems that certain leaders of the Beijing Public Security Bureau would not balk at cutting my family’s throats, if they only had the right tools and techniques.
These Chinese communist officials damage our very concept of human nature. It is not only a tragedy for us citizens who are deprived of our rights, it is a also a tragedy for the bureaucratic officials at the end of this totalitarian system. Continue reading
After 78 days of being stalked by the Chinese government, I and my family come to the conclusion that the plainclothes in China are the most vilest group of people in human society. There may not be many people who object to this statement. Today, in broad daylight, this most repulsive group again demonstrated how despicable they are.
At 12 noon, January 14, my wife and I and a group of lawyer friends of mine were about to go to lunch. The minute we walked out of my office, several plainclothes came up and surrounded us. After we got downstairs and out of the elevator, the plainclothes waiting in the lobby approached us and joined the group. When we walked out of the building, a plainclothes sitting in a car without a license plate was holding a video camera taping us. Continue reading
