Practitioners Demand Immediate End of the Persecution of Falun Gong in China During UN Summit (Photos)
(Clearwisdom.net) On September 24, 2008, on the second day of UN summit, Falun Gong practitioners gathered outside the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, where Wen Jiabao was staying. They requested that Wen immediately stop the brutal persecution of Falun Gong in China and bring to justice Jiang Zemin, Luo Gan, Liu Jing and Zhou Yongkang--the chief perpetrators in the persecution of Falun Gong.
High-level Administrator is Neglecting His Duty if Persecution of Falun Gong Isn't Stopped
Associate Professor Xu Yin, from the Department of Civil Engineering at Tsinghua University, recently managed to free himself from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and come to the USA. He suffered from CCP persecution and knows the agony of torture. He said, "In today's society, people suffer such severe persecution for their beliefs. It is an injustice. The persecution has lasted so many years. As one of the top-level administrators, he is neglecting his duty if he doesn't solve this issue while facing tens of millions Falun Gong practitioners being persecuted."
Calling on International Community to be Alert and Not be Deceived by the CCP
Ms. Yi Rong, one of the organizers of the activity, said the CCP's persecution of Falun Gong has lasted more than nine years. The CCP even extends the persecution overseas by conducting spying operations in other countries.
She said, "Recently, CCP's accomplices and spies beat and attacked Falun Gong practitioners and volunteers from the Service Center for Quitting the CCP in Flushing, New York. In this land of freedom, the CCP thugs attacked practitioners at will. One can imagine in China how brutally the CCP persecutes Falun Gong practitioners. Thus, we demand a stop to the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in China and harassment of practitioners overseas."
She continued, "We ask the international community to be alert and not be deceived by the CCP's superficial behavior or by economic interests. The persecution of Falun Gong is the biggest human rights issue in China. If it is not solved, there is no hope that the CCP will change along with economic development."
CCP's Nature is Deceit
Regarding the international community's support of the CCP in hosting the Olympics and hoping China's human rights situation will improve, Mr. Xu pointed out that the CCP deceived the international community.
He said when he was arrested in 2006, the police told him, "Arresting you is for the 'safety' of the Olympics." When he was released in March this year, police said, "You won't dare to do anything 'damaging', since you have been imprisoned."
He also talked about the recent tainted milk incident. He said the CCP was aware of the issue much earlier, but covered it while hosting the Olympics. Actually many other foods are also tainted. Many people in China complain and protest in various ways. It is time for CCP to disintegrate.
