(Clearwisdom.net) On June 30, 2004, upon hearing that the Jiang regime hired thugs to shoot Falun Gong practitioners, Austrian Falun Gong practitioners called upon the South Africa Embassy to Austria and informed embassy officials about the shooting incident. They also explained the facts of the Jiang regime's brutal persecution of Falun Gong. The Embassy then contacted its government. Shortly afterward, an embassy official called the Austrian practitioners and said: South Africa welcomes Falun Dafa. He also said that he would inform practitioners as soon as he received any information about the shooting incident.

Austrian Falun Gong practitioners rallied in front of the Chinese Embassy to Austria. They condemned Jiang and his followers' terrorist act of hiring gunmen to shoot Falun Gong practitioners in South Africa.
