New York: Falun Gong Practitioners Gather at UN Summit, Call for Bringing the Chief Culprits of the Persecution to Justice (Photos)
(Clearwisdom.net) World leaders will hold a high-level session on Millennium Development Goals at UN Headquarters in New York on September 25, 2008. Falun Gong practitioners have gathered in front of the United Nations and outside the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel where Wen Jiabao is staying. They wish to explain the truth about Falun Gong, and they hope that Wen Jiabao and his entourage who came to attend the summit will take this opportunity to learn the truth and immediately stop the brutal persecution of Falun Gong in China. The practitioners also hope to bring to justice Jiang Zemin, Luo Gan, Liu Jing and Zhou Yongkang--the chief perpetrators in the persecution of Falun Gong.

President of the Falun Dafa Association Yang Sen asks Wen Jiabao to listen to the voices of the people The president of the Mid-US Falun Dafa Association Yang Sen came to New York from Chicago to call for an end to the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) persecution of Falun Gong. He said, "Since July 1999, whenever the CCP high-ranking officials came overseas, including Jiang Zemin, Falun Gong practitioners would come to convey this message."
Yang Sen continued, "Many CCP high-ranking officials are besieged by lies, and they also do not know the truth. Just like today, the CCP organized a welcoming group of over a thousand people. The CCP's mouthpiece media also captured a few seconds of Wen Jiabao shaking hands with them. They take those photos back to China to make propaganda. But they do not take photos of Falun Gong practitioners and other protest groups. The CCP has made Chinese citizens live in lies."

Yang Sen hopes Wen Jiabao will cherish this opportunity in the United States: "Come to our side to take a look, and listen to our voices of concern. If we can have a few second to speak to him, the first sentence I will say is, 'Stop the persecution of Falun Gong;' the second sentence would be 'Falun Dafa is good.' If there is still some time, I want to say 'Bring to justice Jiang Zemin, Luo Gan, Liu Jing and Zhou Yongkang --the chief perpetrators in the persecution of Falun Gong.'"
Yang Sen said, "Since Wen Jiabao's visit to the United States in 2003 until today, the CCP's persecution of Falun Gong is still going on, and more horrifying facts such as live organ harvesting have come to the surface. Wen Jiabao should do something about it. I also know that in the CCP system, it's hard for some officials to do something for ordinary citizens even if they want to. Wen Jiabao may also have his own difficulties. But I hope that he can hear our voices. When a person of true conscience sees the persecution that Falun Gong practitioners have been subjected to, he should know what to do."
Former Canadian Secretary of State for Asia Pacific David Kilgour believes that live organ harvesting is a fact and that tainted milk has long existed
Former Canadian Secretary of State for Asia Pacific David Kilgour was invited to attend a forum at the UN on September 23. He also came to the rally to support Falun Gong practitioners. Mr. Kilgour has been to China and has a deep understanding of China issues. He is also one of the co-authors of an independent investigation report on the CCP's harvesting organs from living Falun Gong practitioners. (http://organharvestinvestigation.net/)
Mr. Kilgour said that although the CCP denies it, evidence from different areas regarding the live organ harvesting has been increasing. Fifty-three new pieces of evidence can be accessed at his website, including the latest evidence where, in an English version DVD, the CCP states that the international community did not have a dialog with a Chinese doctor during the evidence-collection period, but at the end of the DVD, the Chinese doctor Mr. Lu (phonetic) admitted that he did have a conversation with an international investigator. This is the CCP's confession.

Mr. Kilgour has had personal experience with China's tainted milk. In 2002 he visited China with a Canadian milk expert. The expert told him that Chinese people have many methods of adulterating milk, such as pouring white paint into into it. Mr. Kilgour said that tainted milk has existed at least six years, and CCP high-ranking officials like Wen Jiabao have not done much about it.
Mr. Kilgour believes that Wen Jiabao lives in lies the same as others do. Five to six years ago, when chemical plants surrounding Taihu Lake in Wuxi turned the lake into dead water, Wen Jiabao went to visit one of the chemical plants. CCP local officials actually dug out and removed the water around the chemical plant, and poured in clean water and all kinds of fish. When Wen Jiabao arrived, what he saw was residents leisurely fishing. Later, a man who wrote to Wen Jiabao to expose this matter was put in prison. Mr. Kilgour learned about this during his investigation.
Regarding such things as the CCP's organ harvesting from Falun Gong practitioners and milk contamination, Mr. Kilgour said that Chinese people have a long traditional culture and fine virtues. But since the CCP seized power in China, it has been destroying China's traditional culture, resulting in all kinds of social problems that are hard to resolve.
Some Falun Gong practitioners who have suffered persecution in China, such as American citizen Charles Li who was sentenced to prison for explaining the facts about Falun Gong to the Chinese people, and Ms. Zhao who has suffered brutal torture while being detained in the Masanjia Forced Labor Camp, also called for Wen Jiabao to immediately stop the persecution of Falun Gong.
From morning till evening, Falun Gong practitioners have been distributing truth clarification materials to passersby. They hope people will learn the facts about Falun Gong and remember that Falun Dafa is good.
