Los Angeles, CA: Practitioners Condemn the CCP's Killing of Innocent People and Covering up Its Crimes (Photos)
(Clearwisdom.net) On April 14, 2006, practitioners in Los Angeles held a press conference in front of city hall and exposed the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)'s crimes of large scale killing of Falun Gong practitioners and live organ removal for profit in labor camps. The conference pointed out that after the crime was exposed, CCP hastened to destroy evidence and dispose of witnesses. The practitioners called on the international society to pay attention to and stop the CCP's brutal persecution of Falun Gong.
Dr. Yingnian Wu, a practitioner and Associate Professor at the University of California at Los Angeles, was invited to give a speech. He said, "The CCP regime denied the atrocities in Sujiatun Concentration Camp three weeks after the exposure, invited overseas media to conduct an investigation and had a press conference this week. In the three weeks, CCP had plenty of time to transfer eyewitness and destroy evidence. The invitation extended to overseas media is just a ploy. It is similar to the CCP's cover-up of SARS a few years ago. At that time the CCP transferred patients and denied the existence of the SARS epidemic, endangering many lives. Fortunately a senior military doctor exposed the CCP's lies, and the CCP had to admit to the SARS epidemic."
Dr. Wu pointed out, "The CCP's invitation of overseas media to conduct a so-called investigation after transferring and destroying eyewitness and evidence in Sujiatun is to transfer the attention of the international community away from the seven-year brutal persecution of Falun Gong throughout China. Comparing with the whole persecution, the Sujiatun atrocities are just a tip of the iceberg. The Falun Dafa Association and Clearwisdom have founded an 'Coalition to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong in China (CIPFG)'. The coalition has issued a notice regarding the scope of investigation and evidence collection. If the CCP really would like to invite investigations from the international community, it should allow that organization to enter China to investigate all of the facts of persecution in labor camps, prisons, brainwashing centers and mental hospitals, including all of the locations where practitioners have been held during the past seven years."
Dr. Wu said at the end, "Hu Jintao will visit the U.S. We call on President Bush to urge Hu to stop the persecution of Falun Gong, allow an international investigation team to enter China, and bring Jiang Zemin, Luo Gan and other criminals to justice.
Representative from the Epoch Times narrated a timeline of the CCP's persecution of Falun Gong
Practitioner Dr. Qu read the announcement of the "Coalition to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong in China (CIPFG)". The coalition invites all related international organizations, state agencies and media to join in requesting to go to China to conduct an independent, direct, interference-free investigation to collect evidence, and to uncover the truth of the persecution of Falun Gong, including the Sujiatun Concentration Camp and other secret concentration camps located elsewhere.
A representative from the Epoch Times narrated a timeline of the CCP's persecution of Falun Gong. Since July 20, 1999, CCP has treated Falun Gong practitioners as enemies and used them as raw materials for economic development. On December 20, 2000, it was first reported that police and doctors colluded to kill practitioners and sell their organs. The live organ removal and trade reached its peak between 2001 and 2003. In March 2006, the first witness exposed the Sujiatun Concentration Camp, followed by the second and third witnesses confirming the existence of Sujiatun Concentration Camp and 36 similar camps throughout China. Recent investigation shows that live organ removal is rampant in labor camps all over China."
Several others also gave speeches at the press conference condemning the CCP's atrocities and calling for an end of the persecution of Falun Gong. At the end, the host of the conference read an open letter to President Bush, urging him to ask Hu Jintao when meeting him, "Clarify the roles of China's labor camps in the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners. Allow the ICIPO to go into China and research the facts of the persecution of Falun Gong."
