(Clearwisdom.net) On the afternoon of July 3, 2007, Falun Gong practitioners in Brisbane rallied in front of the Chinese Consulate to protest Hong Kong authorities' large-scale unlawful deportation of practitioners based on a blacklist handed out by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) before the tenth anniversary of Hong Kong's handover.

Falun Gong practitioners protested the Chinese Communist Party's atrocities

A couple signed their names to support Falun Gong

A Western practitioner told the reporter that they had come to protest the recent incident in Hong Kong, where many Taiwan and Australia Falun Gong practitioners were illegally refused entry and deported from the Hong Kong airport. He said it was obvious that the Hong Kong authorities had surrendered to CCP pressure. Sources revealed that the blacklist in Hong Kong police was provided by the CCP. Many Falun Gong practitioners were detained in the Hong Kong airport without food or water and not allowed to use restroom. In the end, they were deported. "We came here to protest Hong Kong authorities' violating human rights and the CCP's persecution of Falun Gong."

It was peak traffic time after work and many people stopped to look at the banners and pictures about the Chinese Communist Party's evil deeds.

Many people received a flyer and then asked for more details about the incident. After learning the truth, many people stood in line waiting to sign their names to support the petition to end the persecution.

A couple signed their names and said, "We saw a similar protest last year. Obviously, the situation in China is not improving. It is good to see someone step up against the persecution. I hope that Amnesty International and other organizations will learn about this and do something to end the persecution."

A senior citizen signed his name and said he had a friend in China who was persecuted by the CCP for practicing Falun Gong. Before he left, he greeted Falun Gong practitioners with his best wishes.

During the rally a loudspeaker broadcast the CCP's atrocities and invited people to quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations.
