Sidelights on Taiwan Falun Gong Practitioners' Activity in front of the White House (Photos)
(Clearwisdom.net) To protest against seven years of brutal persecution of Falun Gong by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), Falun Gong practitioners from all over the world went to Washington D.C. during CCP Chairman Hu Jintao's visit to Washington D.C. The Falun Gong practitioners are from all walks of life, engineers, architects, teachers, clerks, housewives, etc. Their common goal is to expose and stop the persecution. They want the world to know the vile nature of the CCP and call for support for the urgent rescue of Falun Gong practitioners in China.
Falun Gong practitioners protest the CCP's persecution with banners
On the afternoon of April 19, Falun Gong practitioners from Taiwan held truth-clarification activities near the hotel of Hu's entourage.
The Chinese Embassy organized a welcome crew for Hu. Falun Gong practitioners told members of the welcome crew about the secret concentration camp, harvesting of Falun Gong practitioners' organs and cremating their bodies, and showed them display boards and pictures. Several people shed tears upon seeing the displays.
A member of the welcome crew continued to sing songs through a speaker. He tried to drown out the Falun Gong practitioners' voice of "Falun Dafa Is Good." Practitioners didn't want to fight with him. After they sent forth righteous thoughts, a policeman went over and stopped the man from singing because he was too loud.
A group of American teenagers with American and Chinese flags in their hands passed by the protestors. Falun Gong practitioners told them about the persecution and the atrocity of harvesting Falun Gong practitioners' organs while they were still alive. The teenagers dropped the flags and left shortly after.
Police cars blocked the roads except for one at around 10 p.m. A motorcade drove by, and Falun Gong practitioners held up their banners and shouted, "Falun Dafa is good!" "Stop persecuting Falun Gong!" The Chinese officials entered through the back door of the hotel in front of the practitioners. As practitioners kept shouting, a couple of American policemen gestured to tell them to shout louder. They also gave the practitioners a thumbs-up.
The Chinese officials glued their eyes on Falun Gong practitioners' display boards through their car windows. They got off the cars, got their luggage and stood there to listen to Falun Gong practitioners' slogans: "Bring Jiang Zemin, Luo Gan, Liu Jing and Zhou Yongkang to justice!" They were there for as long as a half hour before they entered the hotel.
