(Clearwisdom.net) The Canadian media and the Canadian people should know about Ding Guangen's crimes.

On May 9, Ding Guangen and his entourage arrived in Toronto for a four-day stay. The Canadian media and public have the right to know that Ding Guangen is irrefutably responsible for the persecution of Falun Gong. The people should be made aware of his crimes against humanity.

Jiang established the "610 Office" in China on June 10, 1999. It was created as a high-level government agency responsible for persecuting Falun Gong. Director of the Chinese Propaganda Bureau and member of the Party Politics Bureau, Ding Guangen is also a Director of the "610 Office" and is in charge of all propaganda put out by the "610 Office." It is a well-known fact that during the more than three years of brutal persecution of Falun Gong in China, most of the slander and libel of Falun Gong was made at the order of the "610 Office," an extra-judicial agency which has power above all laws and the judiciary. As the director of the "610 Office," Ding Guangen carries the ultimate responsibility for these actions.

During the brutal persecution of Falun Gong in the past three years, Ding Guangen and his accomplices in the "610 Office" made up countless lies and slander. They used all the media in China, including radio broadcasts, T.V. and newspapers to delude the Chinese people. Using the most sinister and shameless methods, they also staged a series of events in order to frame Falun Gong, such as the "1,400 examples" [which claimed that 1,400 people died from practicing Falun Gong], the so-called "Tiananmen Self-Immolation Incident," the "Shocking murder in Beijing," and other fabrications. They instigated Chinese people's hatred against Falun Gong and they pushed the Chinese people, including innocent children, toward the abyss of committing crimes against good people, people who cultivate "Truth, Compassion, Tolerance."

The three-year persecution of Falun Gong in China has resulted in more than 10,000 practitioners being incarcerated, being sent to forced labor, enduring abuse and mistreatment, losing jobs or schooling, being tortured and even murdered. According to an internal source in the Chinese police system, more than 2,000 Falun Gong practitioners have been tortured to death, the youngest being an eight-month-old baby.

Spreading Hatred Abroad

They even stretch the dark hand of persecution overseas. They use Chinese consulates and embassies in many countries to spread lies and slander to the local Chinese and English media in order to instigate Chinese Canadians and other Canadian's hatred of Falun Gong. Some city councillors and Members of Parliament have admitted that they have received anti-Falun Gong materials from Chinese consulates in Canada. The Chinese consulates and embassies in Canada also held slanderous anti-Falun Gong exhibits.

In November 2001 an American non-government organization's publication "Fine Statement On China" described in detail that the Chinese government has infiltrated overseas Chinese media step by step, attempting to influence overseas Chinese people with Party propaganda. According to a media source, Ding Guangen will meet with high-level players in both the Chinese and English media while in Canada.

Canadian People's Support and Sympathy Toward Falun Gong

Over the last few years, we have seen more and more Canadian government officials and kind people learning about the peace and harmony that Falun Dafa's principles "Truth, Compassion, Tolerance" have brought to society. They have expressed sympathy and support for Falun Dafa. Many Canadian Senators have also praised Falun Gong.

We believe that Ding's criminal behavior, lying to his own countrymen and suppressing their pursuit of "Truth, Compassion, Tolerance" and their desire to lead good lives will not be welcomed by the Canadian people.
