Australia: Anti-Torture Exhibition Held in Canberra (Photos)
(Clearwisdom.net) On Thursday June 9, 2005, Falun Gong practitioners held an anti-torture exhibition in Canberra, Australia to expose the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP's) brutal persecution of Falun Gong. This truth-clarification activity won wide support from the public.
On June 4, in a rally in Sydney to commemorate the June 4, 1989 pro-democracy movement and to support the resignation of more than two million people from the CCP, Chinese diplomat Chen Yonglin made an appearance and announced his resignation from the CCP. He said that one of the reasons for his resignation was that he no longer wished to follow the CCP in the persecution of Falun Gong. On June 7, former 610 Office official Hao Fengjun from Tianjin backed up Chen Yonglin's allegations in Melbourne and exposed the CCP's brutal persecution with first-hand evidence. Most recently, a third former CCP official in Australia said that he personally saw a Falun Gong practitioner who was tortured to death. This series of revelations and events has directed the attention of the Australian people toward Falun Gong.
At 11 a.m., while the practitioners were setting up the exhibition, there were people already waiting to learn the facts of Falun Gong and the persecution. Many signed a petition to support the efforts against the persecution. Some people wished to learn about the CCP's harassment and persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in Australia, and they called on the Australian government to investigate and take action to stop the CCP's unlawful acts.
