Argentina: Falun Gong Protestors Assaulted During Luo Gan's Visit, Practitioners Demand That Those Responsible are Brought to Justice (Photos)
(Clearwisdom.net) On December 14, 2005, when Falun Gong practitioners were protesting the CCP delegation headed by Luo Gan in front of Argentina's Congress, the CCP embassy sent hoodlums to assault them. They also grabbed practitioners' banners and truth-clarification photo displays. Falun Gong practitioners stated that they would hold the hoodlums and behind-the-scenes perpetrators accountable.
According to the practitioners, when the incident took place, Luo Gan was about to go to the Congress to meet with Argentina's vice president. At the time, the Argentine Congress was holding an inauguration ceremony for newly elected parliament and senate members. As a result, there was a very high concentration of news media, and also other groups of people at the scene.
On the morning of December 14, practitioners protested at Congress Square. They held banners and clarified the truth about Falun Gong and the persecution to members of parliament. They announced details about the lawsuit against Luo Gan that was filed the day before, and explained the crimes that Luo Gan has committed.
The Chinese embassy sent a big group of pro-communist personnel in buses and cars to Congress Square. These people, all Chinese, were organized and given orders. They dispersed in groups of 10 and began to beat up practitioners who were alone, handing out flyers, furthest away from the police.
The hoodlums hired by the Chinese embassy tore the banners and flyers from practitioners' hands, and seized their personal belongings. They ran around in a frenzy, wantonly beating the practitioners, even in front of the media. Argentines who stood nearby to participate in demonstrations for other reasons came to the rescue of the Falun Dafa practitioners. They tried to stop the hoodlums but were also assaulted. Some of them were even bleeding.
The police on the spot did not stop the assaults, as they said they had orders from the top not to touch the Chinese.
According to the Falun Gong practitioners, women practitioners suffered the most severely.
During the assaults, there were Chinese spies walking around looking for anyone who was filming with private cameras. They tried several times to grab our cameras and film. We could not take any photos or film after the attacks began, but many attacks were filmed by TV stations.
One woman practitioner was being interviewed by a journalist when a Chinese came running from behind and beat her brutally from the back in front of many bystanders. Some Argentines around her wanted to beat him, feeling indignant over such behavior. But they were prevented from doing so by the police. Many of them shouted to the Chinese hoodlums, "This is Argentina, not communist China."
Under the Argentine peoples' protection, practitioners were interviewed by the media. The police tried only to separate the hoodlums from the practitioners. They did not stop the hoodlums from attacking. The police had orders not to touch any of the hired thugs of the Chinese embassy.
The groups of Chinese gave the impression that they were Chinese spies or from the delegation, as all of them were dressed in suits. The police did not arrest any of the attackers.
Among the Chinese hoodlums who attacked the practitioners, about 10 appeared to be in charge. Some other Chinese were embarrassed when they saw the Chinese practitioner from whom they received a copy of Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party and talked with the practitioner. They did not participate in the attack.
After the incident, the practitioners stated that they would file a lawsuit in federal court against the Chinese embassy for hiring hoodlums to attack them, and would see those responsible be brought to justice.
The CCP has persecuted Falun Gong for six and a half years, and the persecution has become more and more difficult to sustain. With Falun Gong practitioners' persistent efforts of clarifying the truth, and in the face of the great trend of quitting the CCP resulting from the publication of the Nine Commentaries, people from all walks of life have gradually recognized the wicked nature of the CCP and the persecution. Many people who used to participate in the persecution also have come to understand that Falun Gong is good and has been treated unjustly. They have stopped following the orders from the malevolent party to persecute Falun Gong.
However there are still a handful of people who do not feel regret and relentlessly persecute Falun Gong. No matter whether it's Luo Gan and other chief perpetrators of the persecution, or the Hebei police who raped women Falun Gong practitioners, or the Chinese hoodlums in Argentina, or the Thai police who were instigated by the Chinese Consulate in Thailand a few days ago, they will ultimately be judged by both the laws of the universe and the laws of our human world.
Falun Gong practitioners advise officials in the Argentine and Thai governments who still succumb to CCP threats and enticement, and assist the CCP to persecute Falun Gong: the collapse of the CCP, which was born in violence, and which has committed huge crimes and owes huge blood debts, is imminent. It is a grave mistake to associate with the evil and ruin your and your countries' future.
