CRY OF BOSTON
This website is built as a result of excruciating fear, engulfing humiliation, arduous struggles, and numerous sleepless nights and drowsy days that a Massachusetts resident has been put through. Starting from summer 2016, Dr. Gang Xu's life has been turned upside down completely. He continues to live in the fear of being murdered or being set up into another lawsuit that merely serves to consume him. He doesn't know if there is another trap for him that involves a MA governmental branch. After suspending his business for 3 years, he officially closed it in September 2019, following its 10th anniversary. He has been exercising extreme caution and living a life in semi-hiding.
Dr. Gang Xu is a naturalized U.S. citizen originally from China. On February 20, 2003, he proudly put his right hand over his heart and pledged his allegiance to the United States of America in Boston Faneuil Hall.
Dr. Gang Xu is a scientist by training. He received his PhD degree from University of Iowa in 1997. After his fellowship at Harvard and a short stint at Yale, he ventured into the real world and discovered his passion in private education. He founded his business in 2009 and had since been working as an educational consultant and a private mentor in the New England independent schools community. It is in such a setting that he came to understand the foundation that had made America American: the notion of community. It is also in such a setting that he saw the gap, as well the common ground, between China and the U.S. He had written a lot, pursuing a professional life that not only offered the best services but also committed himself to the public good. In 2015, he publicized an observation that challenged the undiscriminating use of phonics to unprepared Chinese students, having since stopped the promotion of a practice that could be detrimental to some Chinese students in their acquisition of English as a foreign language.
In early summer 2016, Dr. Gang Xu on his calendar had finished the following work: 1) his colleague had published a textbook for which he wrote a foreword; 2) he had sent out the manuscript of an invited commentary for one of the most recognized newspapers in Chinese American community; 3) he had scheduled a meeting with a linguistics professor at Boston University; and 4) he had worked out an individualized plan for a Chinese high school junior on his intensive English leaning for the summer.
Earlier, he had been in many talks on partnership with education entities in China, including on acquisition of his business.
Later, he was approached by a China Central Television (CCTV) program, which hoped to feature a story about him; he was invited to go to Beijing to attend a national celebration event, clearly organized by the United Front of China that targeted leaders in various professions in overseas Chinese communities. As usual, he distanced himself from such activities and ignored the invitations.
What he had been focusing on was education, the international education that he continues to see as the common ground between China and the Western society, and as the very link that unites all humankind with their shared hope for their next generation.
And he wanted to build a business that would last; he wanted to shape an industry.
But summer 2016 changed everything.
He was hunted. He was put through exactly the same nightmare that the very founding fathers of the Constitution were keenly wary of: The use of government power as a tool of destruction against an individual. He experienced exactly the same dirty game that the authors of The Declaration of Independence had cited and condemned. Two Massachusetts courts, several members of court staff involved, trashed due process and rigged the system, attempting to set him up for a crime and destroy his life and name, acting in a manner only characteristic of mafia.
Behind the entire maneuver was a Chinese business woman in a small town on China-Vietnam border, whose other identity was an intelligence operative there and who was connected to a Chinese spy based in Houston and LA. Her mother is a veteran in the precursor of Chinese intelligence services, once tending and monitoring Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama when Chinese communist army occupied the Tibet in 1950’s.
Only through all these had Dr. Gang Xu realized how unprotected, how vulnerable and how discriminated against an American could be when in a dispute with a Chinese on the land and soil that is supposed to be his own country, and to what degree the judicial branch of MA government—likely many other sectors of America’s society as well—could be controlled and paralyzed by China AND be exploited as a criminal instrument against innocent American citizens.
When talking about human rights and China, most Americans would automatically link the topic to something happening within China, on the other side of the globe, far away from the U.S. But now the dark force of China has joined the devil part of America and together they have formed a new strain of beast that is flexing its muscles and anxious to violate and destroy the life and rights of any American in its way, here in America, more virulently and horrifically than Chinese Communist Party could do in China.
This website hopes to serve one purpose: No American shall ever have to be put through what Dr. Gang Xu has experienced. In doing so, Dr. Gang Xu also takes on the task to examine and present Chinese civilization in a honest way, so to put his ordeal into perspective and so to explore the causes and solutions to the challenges that most Americans will eventually have to deal with.
It is the time to defend the equal rights that Americans are entitled to, on their own land, in the face of an aggressive new Chinese empire.

They came first for the Communists,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew.
Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Catholics
and I didn't speak up because I was a Protestant.
Then they came for me,
and by that time no one was left to speak up."
- Martin Niemöller
