(Cleearwisdom.net) At noon on June 30, 2004, Falun Gong practitioners in North California held a press conference in front of the State Capitol in Sacramento and strongly condemned the Jiang regime for hiring gunmen to shoot practitioners and extending their terrorist acts of brutal persecution of Falun Gong practitioners overseas. The practitioners wanted people around the world to know about the incident and called for the arrest and punishment of the culprits.

We were surprised to hear about the terrorist incident in which an Australian Falun Gong practitioner was shot in South Africa during the visit of Zeng Qihong and Bo Xilai. The Australian practitioners planned to file a lawsuit against the two people for their crimes in the persecution of Falun Gong in China. Practitioner David Liang was shot in both feet and the bones in one of his feet were shattered. The gunmen sped away and did not steal anything. A Falun Gong practitioner witness said, "This is not an ordinary random shooting. It is Zeng Qinghong hiring gunman to shoot us and conducting terrorist activities overseas. He is attempting to extend the persecution of Falun Gong overseas."

Falun Gong practitioner Steven strongly condemned the Jiang faction for exporting state terrorism overseas and hiring gunmen to shoot people. He called for bringing the culprits to justice.

Practitioner Lu Hui said, "In China, at the beginning of 2002, the Jiang faction issued orders to open fire on Falun Gong practitioners. Then there occurred many incidents in which police shot Falun Gong practitioners in different places in China. Police shot Liu Chengjun even when he was handcuffed and shackled. Liu was one of the main participants in broadcasting documentary videos on cable TV in Changchun. He was wounded seriously in his legs."

On March 5, 2002, after Falun Gong practitioners successfully tapped into the local TV cable system and broadcast the "Falun Dafa Spreading Around the World" and "Self-Immolation or Hoax?" documentaries in Changchun City and Songyuan City, a shocked and hysterical Jiang Zemin ordered the police to "kill without pardon." The police around the country even wrote out death lists. The head of the central "610 Office," Liu Jing, went to Changchun City to impose a deadline for finding those responsible. Numerous Falun Gong practitioners were illegally seized. According to sources, in Changchun City alone more than 5,000 practitioners were abducted. During the abduction and interrogation, several practitioners were beaten to death. Those who were directly involved in tapping the cable network and caught were tortured and sentenced to prison for as long as 20 years. Mr. Liu Chengjun, who was a main participant in the broadcast, was shot twice in his leg even after he was handcuffed and shackled. Mr. Liu was sentenced and jailed in Jilin Prison, where he was tortured and abused until he died, after 21 months, on December 26, 2003.

Lu Hui also listed several examples of police shooting at Falun Gong practitioners during unlawful round-ups. From these gunshot cases, we can see that the Jiang faction doesn't apply law but state terrorism to Falun Gong practitioners. The persecutors are afraid of practitioners' truth-clarification in China and so they open fire at will. They are afraid of lawsuits overseas and so they hire gunmen to shoot the practitioners. These terrorist activities expose the Jiang faction's cruel nature and more people will join the protest to end the brutal persecution.

On June 29 and 30, Falun Gong practitioners in North California also held an anti-torture exhibition in front of the State Capitol to expose the Jiang faction's brutal persecution of Falun Gong practitioners to passers-by, government officials and tourists. The shooting incident in South Africa allowed more people to learn about the Jiang faction's state terrorism.
