Feng Zhenghu still living in Narita Airport

Feng has one simple wish: to go home. Yet Chinese officials will not let this Chinese citizen return to his country.

“That’s the most basic right a human has—to return home. That’s not just a Chinese issue. It’s the same worldwide. That’s my wish. I want to return to my home and my country,” said Feng.

Feng’s plight has become an emblem for attempting to hold Chinese officials accountable to their own laws.

In China, Feng published a magazine called Corruption Watch to monitor corruption among officials and the courts, particularly in his home of Shanghai. He taught himself law and helped Chinese petitioners fighting for their rights after being forcibly evicted and their homes demolished. Before that, he was a student activist in the 1989 democracy movement that was squelched when the tanks rolled over Tiananmen Square.

Feng said the regime is keeping him out of China to silence him. “They didn’t have a legitimate reason or excuse to arrest me … So they used a different method and forced me out of China. After they force you out, you have no choice but to leave. It has happened to many people over the years they use the same method. All you can do is protest a little. So the method they use, to them, is a very successful method.”
