Clarifying the Truth to State Legislators about Jiang's Group Hiring Thugs to Kill People Overseas
(Clearwisdom.net) The day after hearing the shocking news of Falun Gong practitioners being shot in South Africa, a few Boston practitioners went to the Massachusetts state government office building to arrange for a press conference. Two officials were very shocked after they heard the news. They expressed their sympathy and made time to help arrange the press conference site for us between 2:00 and 3:00PM, even though they had been fully booked that afternoon.
As it is difficult in general to get to see the legislators at all, the shooting incident is a good opportunity to clarify the truth to them face to face. We arrived outside their meeting hall and spent the whole day waiting for legislators who walked in and out, and distributed information that explained the facts to them. We briefly reported the South African incident of the Jiang group's hiring hit men to kill people, and how they have harassed and also exported Jiang's terrorism to the U.S. We pointed out that this was a terrorist act, staged to stop certain countries and regions from suing Jiang's group for genocide. The legislators were shocked when they heard this. Other organizations and people who were waiting outside to see the legislators were also shocked to hear about the persecution of Falun Gong in China, which has even escalated to the point that hit men were hired in South Africa to kill people. They immediately helped the practitioners to contact their legislative representatives or made time for us to talk to those representatives.
About 80 to 100 legislators received our information that day. Some of them who had an opportunity to talk to us in detail asked us what they could do for Falun Gong practitioners. This kind of clarifying the truth face to face has a very good effect.
