Why I shift from maritime lawyer to human rights lawyer by Thomas G Guo


Why did I change from a maritime lawyer to become a human rights lawyer that can make a little money, and have to face risks and revenge by the China Communist Party regime at any time?

Because I firmly believe that the CCP is the roots of all political disasters has been happening in China since it seized the state power by illegal violence in 1949. China’s political and legal systems are a reactionary and bloody despotic tyrant, which makes a fair trial and legal justice absolutely impossible. I realized that the human rights situation in China is extremely poor, Chinese people, in essence, enjoy no human rights for even human rights lawyers themselves suffering no legal protection with their rights. In China, there is no such thing as the rule of law, neither have an independent judiciary nor free media, that cause the authorities totally rotten and corrupt and Chinese people suffer greatly.  I learned about many fighters for freedom and democracy who sacrificed their personal and family benefits and gave up material enjoyment. I also learned that the Falun Gong practitioners suffer a great deal just for their beliefs and I wanted to do something to help the Falun Gong. I wanted to defend their fundamental human rights and I wanted to stop the foolish policy of the CCP against the Falun Gong practitioners. I wanted to help set up a real rule of law in China. I wanted to do something to push the government to reform her political system as soon as possible. I wanted to fight for fundamental freedoms and human rights of Chinese people.

My experience tell me that without reform of political and legal systems, China will have no future and people will suffer more disasters than before. Although my personal and family interestings or career might suffer great deal, despite the fact that as individual, my ability and energy are very limited, since no one dares to stand up and fight for justice, I will. No matter what the result may be, no matter what loss I will face. So I do it. I have to add that because of my personal experience in which I suffered so much for my political opinions, I really do not want the disaster that happened in me to happen again to others. I am interested in jurisprudence and philosophy and I believe that I am good at human rights law, and I can contribute much more than I could as a maritime lawyer for my beloved country's freedom, democracy, human rights, rule of law and Constitution.

I understand that if people cannot or dare not speak the truth or even hear or learn the truth, a country must have no future at all. I also believe that courage, honesty and integrity are the best characteristics of human being, so I always do and say what I think is right, just according to my mind. Thus I know what I am doing, what the result might be and what suffering I could face. However dangerous it will be, however difficult it will be, I intentionally choose the path of human rights. I just want to do my duty and mission according to the God’s will, and I am sure that He will always bless me for it. The most important thing is that, from the very beginning as a young lawyer, I have made up my mind to be somebody in the future, so my practice as a trial lawyer's principle is that the first never fear death, and the second, never love money.

Of course what I mean by not fearing death is not exact, because life is so valuable, sunshine is so warm, friendship and love are so charming, the forestry grassland and sea are so full of life, how can I not enjoy such lovely life? What I mean is that if I have to die, I would like to die for freedom and justice. I said that never love money also is not precise, for money is so lovely, without it we cannot even survive and lost our freedom, how can I not love it? What I mean is that as a gentleman I would like to make money through my wisdom and hard- working, but never sell out my dignity and soul as well as the principles, I will never cooperate with the corrupt CCP regime.
