World Journal: Falun Gong Practitioners' Relay Hunger Strike
(Clearwisdom.net) Yesterday, Falun Gong practitioners gathered in front of the Chinese Consulate-General in Toronto to express their support for 130 fellow practitioners who are currently on hunger strike in the Masanjia labor camp in Shenyan City, China. The four practitioners in Toronto are: Zhang Tiejun, Zhang Menghua, Zhu Li and Zhang Yan. They began the hunger strike at 9 am on August 20, to support fellow practitioners in Masanjia who are protesting their illegally extended incarceration after completing their (illegal) terms in the labor camp.
The practitioners stated that, at the end of these four practitioners' 48-hour hunger strike, other practitioners will continue the hunger strike appeal and demand that the Chinese government immediately release the 130 practitioners in Masanjia.
