[Clearwisdom.net] On August 6th, 2002, Russian InfoNews published a report entitled, "The Domain of Chinese Sovereignty Is on the Other Side of the Wall, Not on the Side of the Demonstrators." The following is the translated version of the report:

On August 5th, Russian Falun Gong practitioners demonstrated outside the Chinese Embassy, expressing their extreme dissatisfaction with the persecution against Falun Gong practitioners by the Chinese government.

According to one Russian practitioner, "This demonstration has nothing to do with politics. We have come to the Chinese Embassy to make the Chinese government know that their suppression of Falun Gong goes against compassion and forbearance, opposes humanitarianism, and is absolutely lacking in human nature."

The purpose of this demonstration was to call on China to stop its suppression of Falun Gong. Intimidated by the increasing number of people who practiced Falun Gong, the Jiang regime started to suppress Falun Gong in 1999, when it initiated a comprehensive, vicious campaign of persecution and slanderous attacks against Falun Gong. Since then, over 400 practitioners have died. From 1992 on, Falun Gong has spread very quickly, so that now there are about one hundred million people around the world following the practice. In Moscow alone there are hundreds of Falun Gong practitioners.

Falun Gong followers brought yellow banners on which were written the words in Chinese and Russian, "Please Don't Spread Deceitful Lies about Falun Gong," "Falun Gong---Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance," and "Stop the Persecution of Falun Gong in China."

Some of the Falun Gong practitioners handed out fliers to the passers-by, introducing Falun Gong to them. The others practiced the exercises and sent forth righteous thoughts. They also played a Chinese song in praise of Falun Gong several times. According to a Russian practitioner, the elegant song was composed by a practitioner in China.

The staff in the Chinese Embassy did not respond to the demonstration. Waleili Nicolaski, representative of the human rights organization, "Promote Social Freedom and Friendliness," joined in the demonstration. He commented, "As soon as they found Chinese Falun Gong practitioners, the Chinese officials would send them back to China where the practitioners would be subjected to the most brutal torture. That's why the Chinese officials prefer to pretend not to see the Falun Gong practitioners. In the previous demonstration, at the entrance to the embassy, one Chinese official walked toward a police officer in charge of security and asked him to stop the demonstration as soon as possible. The police officer replied, 'The domain of Chinese sovereignty is on the other side of the wall, not on the side of the demonstrators.'"
