San Francisco Falun Gong practitioners call on Hong Kong not follow the CCP to persecute Falun Gong and ruin Hong Kong's future

From June 24 to July 1, 2007, Hong Kong authorities blocked the estimated 1,000 Falun Gong practitioners and other passengers from Taiwan, Australia, Philippines and Macao from entering Hong Kong by means of refusing to issue visas, not allowing to board and forcible and violent deportation. More than 800 Taiwanese Falun Gong practitioners have been confirmed to have been denied entries. Falun Gong practitioner Lu Hui said that this is the largest scale and the most violent incident of deportation of Falun Gong practitioners and human rights violation since the CCP took over Hong Kong ten years ago.

Representative of Hong Kong's Economic Office in San Francisco Patric met with Lu Hui outside the office. Lu Hui explained to him about the Hong Kong's deportation incident that violates human rights. Lu Hui pointed out that Hong Kong is a democratic place, should not have such a thing occur, which will ruin Hong Kong's image.

Patric said that he had not learned about this matter. He would pass Falun Gong's message back to Hong Kong.

Steve, representing Falun Gong practitioners, said that the violent deportation incident is a big international human rights scandal that was concocted by Zeng Qinghong, vice-president of the CCP in charge of Hong Kong affairs. It took place prior to Hu Jintao's visit to Hong Kong, its purpose was to force Hu to bear the blame for persecuting Falun Gong and drag down Hu and Hong Kong government into an awkward situation.

Steve called on the Hong Kong government not to comply with the CCP, or assist it in persecuting Falun Gong practitioners. This harms Hong Kong's image and ruins Hong Kong's future.
