The CCP's Violent Acts in Slovakia Expose Its Own Brutality
(Clearwisdom.net) On June 19, 2009, when the Chinese delegation was visiting the capital of Slovakia, some of its members shoved two peaceful women down a flight of stairs right in front of the world. Their own "offense" was displaying banners protesting the persecution enacted by the Chinese Communist Party. One has to wonder, if the CCP has the gall to do this outside of China, in broad daylight and before the international community, what does it do within its own notorious prisons and forced labor camps? Is it so hard to believe the accounts of torture, live organ harvesting, and outright murder that happen behind the prison walls?
For the CCP members in the delegation, this was second nature to sweep aside anything or anyone displaying a message that it didn't like, but for the rest of the world, it was a telling sign of how the CCP deals with those that it considers to be dissidents. In trying to blot out a banner that exposes its wickedness with words, the CCP has painted a vivid picture of what it's all about.
Predictably, within two hours, more than a dozen Slovakian media reported on this ugly incident. When asked about the explanation of the thugs not being part of the Chinese contingent, one Member of Parliament asked rhetorically if all Chinese tourists wear matching black suits and carry walkie-talkies before assaulting women. Several NGO's have also condemned the CCP's violent acts and requested an investigation into the incident.
In contrast, when Ms. Su, one of the Falun Gong practitioners who was shoved down the stairs and suffered injuries to her arm and head, was interviewed, she was a picture of calm, dignity and righteousness. She showed no fear of the violence or bitterness towards her attackers.
This juxtaposition of good and evil was obviously not the intent of the CCP's actions, but it was not possible without the CCP acting out according to its nature. When it clumsily tried to keep the truth about its persecution from getting out, it managed to broadcast that same truth more effectively with its actions than a banner ever could.
