(Clearwisdom.net) The World Organization to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong (WOIPFG) announced on April 6, 2004 that it had published a new book, "Investigation Reports on the Persecution of Falun Gong," and that its spokesman, Mr. John Jaw, would introduce the book for the first time in Geneva, where the United Nations Human Rights Commission meeting is being held.
According to WOIPFG, this book, which takes the form of an investigative report, details a large amount of evidence and facts and discloses the deep extent, wide range, and the large number of victims and persecution methods used in the persecution of Falun Gong since July 20, 1999.
The book consists of five chapters:
In addition, this book discloses many secret documents regarding the persecution of Falun Gong, including two key documents which set a decisive tone for the persecution of Falun Gong: "The letter from Jiang Zemin to the members of the standing committee of the Political Bureau and other related leaders" at midnight on April 25, 1999, and "Jiang Zemin's speech to the Central Political Bureau Conference regarding speeding up the handling and solving of the 'Falun Gong' issue" on June 7, 1999. In the "Investigation Report on Jiang Zemin's Persecution of Falun Gong" (part of this book), WOIPFG pointed out that these two key pieces of evidence indicate that, "Jiang Zemin has characterized the situation as 'Contradictions between ourselves and the enemy' and 'Class struggle' in China, placed himself above China's Constitution and violated the law using all kinds of means to repress and eliminate Falun Gong. He has committed genocide and crimes against humanity as specified by the United Nations."
Using the persecution in the Chinese educational system as an example, this book also discloses that the persecution has extended to every corner of China. In the educational system, there are more than 61 confirmed death cases due to torture by the police, and at least 435 Falun Gong practitioners from 210 Chinese universities, colleges and institutes have been sentenced to forced labor camps. From Tsinghua University alone, more than 300 professors and students have been illegally detained, forced to resign from work or quit school. Moreover, more than ten people from Tsinghua were sentenced to long prison terms. These include Bai Rongchun (13 years), Liu Zhimei (12 years), Yao Yue (12 years), Wang Xuefei (11 years), Meng Jun (10 years), Wang Xin (9 years), Dong Yanhong (5 years), Yu Ping (4 years), Yu Jia (3 and a half years), Liu Wenyu (3 years) and Li Feng (3 years). As stated in the "Conclusion" section of the book, "This persecution has adopted the Chinese Communist Party's tens of years of experience in struggling and persecuting people; its cruelty and bloodiness can be accurately described as unprecedented."
The spokesman for WOIPFG, Mr. John Jaw, recently left for Geneva to attend the 60th United Nations Human Rights Commission meeting with the book, and he will distribute one copy of this book to every government official and human rights attorney. In the WOIPFG's open letter "To the United Nations Commission on Human Rights and members of the United Nations," it is stated that, "We hope this report can help you to gain an overall and systematic understanding of this persecution and to realize its far-reaching meaning for the Chinese people and the people around the world in condemning and helping to stop the persecution. When history turns this darkest page in the book of human civilization, we hope everyone can say with no qualms, "I stood by justice!"
