(Clearwisdom.net) On January 20, 2004, the U.S. Seventh Circuit Court accepted the Falun Gong practitioners' documents filing an appeal regarding the lawsuit against Jiang Zemin. At one p.m. local time, the attorney for the plaintiffs held a press conference at the Chicago Hilton.

The lawsuit against Jiang Zemin in Chicago is one of several ongoing around the world. The Falun Gong practitioners expressed that since Jiang's regime began the persecution campaign more than four years ago, more than 800 cases of practitioners being tortured to death have been verified in spite of layer after layer of information blockades. Because of this persecution, the Falun Gong practitioners have brought a lawsuit against Jiang Zemin on charges of torture and genocide.

The lawsuit has caught the attention of the legal community, and it is seen as a major event by human rights activists, as the Falun Gong practitioners continue to seek justice and human rights through peaceful, legal channels.

More details will follow in subsequent reports.
