Boston: Practitioners Gather on Harvard Square to Condemn the Shooting of Practitioners in South Africa (Photos)
(Clearwisdom.net) At 1 pm on June 30, 2004, Falun Gong practitioners in Boston, Massachusetts held a press conference on Harvard Square to expose the terrorist actions of Zeng Qinghong and Bo Xilai, who are believed to have hired hit men to shoot practitioners in South Africa.
Clarifying the truth to people
Harvard Square, located in downtown Cambridge, is near the renowned Harvard University. At noon, people came outside to have lunch and there were crowds of people in the square. During the press conference, many people stopped to watch and learn the truth.
At the press conference, a practitioner talked about the shooting incident in which Australian Falun Gong practitioner David Liang was wounded in Johannesburg, South Africa. Zeng and Bo, followers of Jiang, are both believed to be involved in this terrorist act. The practitioner also talked about the Jiang group's persecution of Falun Gong practitioners during the last five years and the extension of the persecution overseas.
Boston citizens from all walks of life were shocked at the shooting incident. One day earlier, several practitioners met their state representatives and informed them about the incident. The representatives were shocked after hearing the news and asked what they could do for Falun Gong practitioners.
A manager of a newspaper made suggestions after hearing the news and helped to contact the chief editor to arrange an interview.
A Harvard scholar passing by who could not understand why peaceful Falun Gong practitioners were brutally persecuted in China, said after learning about the shooting incident, "This is evil. This terrorism cannot be accepted."
A young American man who sang on Harvard Square every day to make some money stopped singing for an hour to let the practitioners have the press conference after learning the facts of Falun Gong and the persecution.
