Ottawa practitioner joined hunger strike in Hong Kong
Ottawa local, Lucy Zhou, is among Falun Gong practitioners in Hong Kong who began a 54-hour hunger strike on Monday to protest against the Jiang regime for pressuring the territory into bringing false criminal charges against 16 practitioners. They will receive verdicts on August 15.
Lucy travelled to Hong Kong last week to show support to fellow practitioners.
"This trial should have never existed from the first place. The nature of the trial is not a civil or even political in the normal sense; it is in reality of prosecution of good people's effort to stop the killing of innocent people. It is alarming because it is happening in a supposedly democratic society that has a tradition of freedoms and the rule-of-law." said Lucy.
