Eye on China

Swimming with God

free mp3

Dieses Lied wurde von dem deutschen Projekt ‚Swimming with God‘ extra für die ‚Olympia 2008′ CD komponiert und produziert. Nach längerer Auseinandersetzung mit dem Thema Menschenrechtsverletzungen in China, beschloß der Komponist einfach nur die derzeit in China praktizierten Foltermethoden zu beschreiben und immer wieder im Song die Frage zustellen:’Wollen wir in diesem Land olympische Spiele?‘
Es ist weltweit das erste Mal, dass die Horrorszenen der Foltermethoden an Falun Gong Praktizierenden in China nicht nur in Bildform, sondern auch in Form von Musik gezeichnet werden.
Einmalig, hörenswert und erschütternd.

Musik & Text: Björn G. Detjen


Electric batons are the most commonly used torture instruments employed by police officers and jail guards in persecuting Falun Gong practitioners.

They use electric batons that carry voltages as high as 300.000 volts to shock practitioners sensitive areas, including the mouth, center of the palms, genitals, chest, neck and breasts.

Sometimes they use several electric batons simultaneously to shock practitioners.


Based on reports across China, different Detention centers use the Idea of the water dungeon in different ways.

Water Dungeon is a grotesque torture.
A victim is stripped down to underwear or naked and locked into a small iron cage with spikes on all sides.

Some water dungeons submerge a Falun Gong practitioner in chest-deep, filthy water;
In others the water is too deep to stand in.

Usually the water dungeons are well-hidden rooms or cells where practitioners are forced to stay for days (and nights) on end in total darkness.

Is that what you call fair?

Small cages are 1.5 meters in height, 1.3 meters in length and less than a meter in width.

Victims are usually handcuffed to the cage in such a way that they can neither stand up nor sit down, but must just hold themselves in an awkward, crouched position.

Sleep is not allowed.

After a few days, the victims legs will become swollen. In severe cases, necrosis can happen to feet, ankles and legs.

The small cage is usually placed outdoors to expose the victim to bitter cold in winter, scorching sun in summer, as well as insect bites.

Victims of small cage torture often have difficulty walking even after a long recovery period.

Is that what you call fair?
