Washington D.C.: Falun Gong Practitioners from Taiwan Call for Release of Ms. Xiang Lijie in front of the Chinese Embassy (Photo)
(Clearwisdom.net) In July 2006, a group of Falun Gong practitioners gathered in front of the Chinese Embassy in Washington D.C. To call for the release of Xiang Lijie, who is married to a Taiwanese practitioner, and who has been imprisoned by the CCP. Xiang Lijie is from Mainland China, but practitioners from Taiwan are concerned about her situation. Xiang was arrested again in May. Since then, practitioners have been conducting rescue efforts. Some made the display boards, some made phone calls to China, and some contacted human rights organizations. They clarified the truth to Taiwanese people, who often go to Mainland China.
The Chinese Communist Party has not allowed Xiang Lijie to go to Taiwan for six years. One of the reasons is that Xiang refuses to renounce Falun Gong. Another reason is that the CCP is afraid that their crimes of persecuting Falun Gong would be exposed if Xiang goes to Taiwan. But they can only cover up their crime temporarily. They will be punished eventually.
In the past six years, Xiang Lijie has experienced all kinds of torture, including being jailed, being force-fed, being subjected to brainwashing, and so on. Xiang's husband is not allowed to see his wife. Her father-in-law passed away before he had a chance to meet his daughter-in-law. Practitioners from Taiwan called upon the international community to help to rescue Xiang Lijie. They won't give up the effort until Ms. Xiang is released.
