I. The Consulate's bi-weekly report


  1. Consul-General Liao held a dinner banquet with the Governor of the New South Wales State, Vice Governor, Senators, Congress members, Palmerston City Mayor, South Sydney City Mayor, and Adelaide City Mayor and looked for an opportunity to work on Falun Gong.

  2. On February 8, 2001, Deputy Consul-General Shi met with General Manager Wu Chenghuan and Chief Editor Wu Huiquan of the Australian Chinese Daily. Consul Shi expressed his concern about the newspaper running Falun Gong's advertisements. The newspaper representatives expressed that they would carefully take care of this issue and publish articles recommended by us.

  3. We recommended a dozen articles from People's Daily and Xinhua News Agency to the Chinese media.

  4. On February 9, 2001, we contacted the New South Wales Police and expressed concern about Falun Gong hanging a banner on a parked vehicle in front of the Consulate and passing out flyers to people passing by.

  5. On February 10, 2001, according to requests in the letters, we mailed criticizing Falun Gong material to the New South Wales Congressman Kevin Moss (member of the Canterbury) and Strathfield City Mayor Virginia Judge.

  6. On February 16 and 18, 2001, we contacted China News Agency and Xinhua News Agency about the Lion's Club's Declaration, and they both reported accordingly.

  7. On February 20, and 21, 2001, during the New Student Registration days of the New South Wales State University and Sydney University, our Education Group sent people to investigate and did not find any Falun Gong activities. However, several Falun Gong members held booths in Sydney University. We have notified some overseas students to check their personal information.

  8. On February 23, 2001, we displayed criticizing Falun Gong propaganda boards in the Consulate yard.

  9. Met with Chinese person Yao (given name omitted), who is a Christian. He wrote an article from Christian standpoint criticizing Falun Gong, and we are trying to have it published in Australia Daily and Independent Express.

  10. Met with Chinese person Lu (given name omitted), who provided videos and other materials. She promised to write more articles and introduce the [slanderous term omitted] nature of Falun Gong to her friends and neighbors. (Lu wrote criticizing Falun Gong articles before under the pen name Luye.)


II. Tasks to be done in the following two weeks:


  1. On February 24, 2001, Falun Gong held South Sydney "Falun Dafa Day," near Oxford Ave. About 50-60 people attended, posted Falun Dafa and Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance banners. They passed out materials, played Falun Gong exercises music, and taught ten westerners the exercises.

  2. Deploy overseas Chinese to write to the New South Wales State government, Congress members, and police. (The three main points are to persuade the Australian government to not co-sponsor the United Nation's Human Rights Resolution against China, to not nominate Li Hongzhi for the Nobel Peace Prize, and to oppose Falun Gong protesting in front of the Consulate.)

  3. Maintain Display Board well.

  4. Make appointments with Congress members who are to be worked on.

  5. Hold overseas student representative's meetings and pass down the work plan. Criticize Falun Gong well.

  7. Notify journalists to interview elderly overseas Chinese person Yao and invite him to criticize Falun Gong from Christian standpoint.

  8. Invite Canadian celebrity Liang Yancheng to Forum in Sydney, held by the Sydney Presbyterian church. Liang opposes Falun Gong. Perhaps we can invite him to the Consulate to further influence the Presbyterian Church and see if they are willing to criticize Falun Gong.

  9. Deploy overseas Chinese people, China-owned agencies, and overseas students to write to the New South Wales State government, police, and State Foreign Trade Ministry Liaison Office accusing Falun Gong protests in front of the Consulate of interfering with them contacting the Consulate.

  10. Contact the Australia Chinese Community Association about Falun Gong defaming the association. Hopefully, they can react like the Lion's Club did.

  11. Record a complete name list of Falun Gong activists.

  12. Continue playing video criticizing Falun Gong in the Visa Office Hall.

  13. Place a garbage can at the entrance of the Consulate, so visitors can throw Falun Gong materials in.
