KPIX/KCBS reported on May 2 that Chinese Vice President Hu Jintao visited the Bay Area on May 2. Some local Falun Gong practitioners went to the Chinese consulate and held a candlelight vigil outside, calling on Jiang's regime to immediately stop the persecution of Falun Gong. These practitioners said they are not against Hu's visit, however, they hope that Hu Jintao can pay attention to the seriousnesss of the Falun Gong issue. Jiang's regime persecutes Falun Gong and the human rights record in China really worries them.
