Falun Dafa practitioners in Hong Kong said that Jiang and his regime have brutally persecuted Falun Gong for four years. Falun Dafa practitioners still protest the persecution peacefully and calmly.

The following is an excerpt from the article "A Letter from a Senior Citizen in His 70s to Officials at Each Level."
I cultivate Falun Gong because I want to have a healthy body and so that I can be fulfilled spiritually. I never violated any constitution or law. I have been unlawfully sentenced to nine years in prison, and my little retirement salary, which I live on, has been withheld. Have you taken into consideration that high pressure and coercion cannot change people's hearts. Using heavy sentencing and withholding salary in order to persecute cultivators makes you go against heavenly laws and human justice! I hope the government restores justice to me as soon as possible, and return to the people a peaceful, pleasant living environment. I also strongly suggest that you pay me back for all of the retirement salary that you have withheld from me.
