On June.4 2020 Mr. Hao Haidong read ‘the declaration of the New Federal State of China’, and publicly criticized the brutal regime of Chinese Community Party.
Though thousands disagree, I will still persist.
— Mr. Hao Haidong
We are here not because we were persecuted, nor were we poor, or were we seeking for fame and profit. We are here for our needs of basic human dignity.
— Ms. Ye Zhaoyin (wife of Mr. Hao) & Mr. Hao Haidong
Their courage to appear in front of the screen (& speak the truth) is enough to motivate 1.4 billion people in China.
— Ms. An Hong
This year, Deutsche Welle China paid a tribute to Mr. Hao Haidong on his birthday in a report, ‘He was a north star in the Chinese National Football Team in the 90s. He was the Asian “No.1 Forward”, and he was a football icon of the generation. Happy birthday Mr. Hao Haidong!’
In the birthday tribute, it was mentioned multiple times that ‘though thousands disagree, I will still persist’. We strongly sense that Mr. Hao Haidong & his wife Ms. Ye Zhaoyin have already made a significant decision in their lives: ‘March forward under the pressure that most people cannot bear’. Now in the ceremony of the founding of New Federal State of China Mr. Hao was very outspoken, ‘We are here not because we were persecuted, nor were we poor, or were we seeking for fame and profit. We are here for our needs of basic human dignity’.
On May.15, 2020, Mr. Hao wrote on Weibo (Chinese social media), confronted with doubts and questions:
Yes. I joined the army when I was 10. I then represented PLA Football Team at the age of 16 and joined the National Youth Team. At the age of 18 I represented PLA Football Team and competed in Series A. He scored numerous goals. In 1996 Series A Professional League he won the 3rd place without any foreign support & kept home court not defeated, for which he was honoured as ‘Chinese Jia-A League Team of the year’.
In 1997 he transferred to Dalian Wanda Football Team. Looking back, he has regrets but never felt ashamed!
Mr.Hao, a football icon of a generation, received numerous recognitions. He lives a life of dignity and righteousness. On June.4 2020 his life was even more enriched with his reading of ‘the declaration of the New Federal State of China’, and publicly criticized the brutal regime of Chinese Community Party.
Bless our fellow fighters, who live a life of courage and righteousness. Your persistence gives hope to people in the New Federal State of China who long for democracy and freedom.
Thank you, fellow fighters. It is because of you that we Chinese can anticipate a brand-new future!
