About Dr. Shizhong Chen

Dr. Shizhong Chen has been active in projects concerning China for over 30 years. He has founded, co-founded, or been spokesperson for a number of organizations concerning China, and has spoken extensively on issues related to China.

Dr. Chen began his activism in 1989, when he helped to organize supporting activities during the 1989 Beijing Student Movement. Outraged by the June 4th Massacre, Dr. Chen founded the Tiananmen Square Foundation, has served on the Board of the Press Freedom Guardian, and was elected as the vice president of The Independent Federation of Chinese Students and Scholars in the U.S.

Upon learning the brutal persecution of Falun Gong in China, Dr. Chen founded the Falun Gong Human Rights Working Group in 2001, and has since submitted over 100,000 cases of human rights abuses against Falun Gong practitioners to UN Special Rapporteurs. He also founded and is President of the Conscience Foundation, a non-profit organization to publicize and remind people that the human conscience is the very essence of humanity.

Dr. Chen has spoken extensively on the issue of human rights in China. Since 2001, he has frequented meetings of the U.N. Human Rights Commission in Geneva (now the Human Rights Council), spoken to the Council, to Special Rapporteurs, and at many forums to forward the cause of human rights. He was a panelist at an annual meeting of the California Bar Association, has spoken to Amnesty International’s US West Region, and has made numerous appearances at various forums and on radio and TV shows and interviews.

Among the books that Dr. Chen has authored or co-authored are: Stories of Conscience, The Falun Gong Report, Falun Gong, Humanity’s Last Stand, now in its third edition, and, most recently, a comprehensive report on the extensive psychiatric torture taking place in China.

In 2005, Dr. Chen conceived the idea of the Courageous People, Spirited Land TV series and implemented the project. The programs have since become very popular in China where viewers have been disseminating them defying Chinese regime’s prohibition.

From 2010, Dr. Chen has given a presentation on The Renaissance of Chinese Culture over one hundred Rotary Clubs, Kiwanis Clubs, Lion Clubs, and various colleges.

From 2012, Dr. Chen has been working with a group of activists in China to use China’s current laws to defend civil rights.

Dr. Chen was born in China in 1962. At 15, he entered the gifted program at China University of Science and Technology. He came to the U.S. in 1982 to study and received his Ph.D. degree in molecular biology at University of California, San Diego. He currently owns and runs a molecular biology startup in San Diego.

An email we received from Dr. Chen:

Please count me in for tomorrow. On top of that, I think the spiritual topic we initiated a couple of weeks ago must be continued, for its importance is beyond description, and I have a suggestion for you.

Not all plagues are medically curable. The best known case was the plague of the first-born. I am a scientist, and the most “scientific” explanation for that biblical plague is a categorical denial that it happened. Mere mortals’ denials notwithstanding, “[t]he Almighty has His own purposes.” I believe that America is the positive result of God’s wrath expressed in the bubonic plague, through religious revival in Protestant Reformation. This nation was therefore founded not on ethnic, territorial, cultural or historical bases, but on convictions. America hence has national ideals. These national ideals are the very reason for America’s existence, and what separates America from other nations. All other nations may calculate and act on their national interests, but not America.

There have always been temptations to seduce America away from its national ideals, and America has been put through tests. America had come out from the right side of the history numerous times, and even in its darkest hours, the worst some Americans had done previously was “to ask a just God's assistance in wringing their bread from the sweat of other men's faces.”  Unfortunately, when America began to make Faustian deal with the CCP’s generous barbarism after 1989 Tiananmen Massacre, executed by American presidents from Bush to Obama, and the establishment behind them, it took America’s deviation from its national ideals to a whole completely different level – accepting the evil’s assistance in wringing their bread from the sweat of other men's faces. “The shining city on a hill” was brought down to the swamp of “strategic partnership” with the anti-theist CCP, and the CCP virus came.
