(Clearwisdom.net) On December 20, Argentina's Ambassador invited Dafa practitioners to a meeting. Ambassador Elda Beatriz Sampietro had read a letter from the Falun Dafa Association of Sweden that contained information about practitioners being attacked by thugs during the visit of Chinese official Luo Gan to Argentina. The Chinese Embassy dispatched the thugs to physically assault the practitioners who were peacefully protesting the persecution of Falun Dafa in China during Luo Gan's visit. The Argentine police did not intervene because of orders from upper levels. The ambassador heard about the practitioners' petition this week calling on Argentina's government to not bow to the CCP's pressure, and she wished to learn more details about the incident.

In a one-hour meeting, practitioners introduced Falun Gong and the wide spread of Falun Gong in 78 countries and regions around the world. They explained the facts of the persecution by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and the crimes of the 610 Office and its head, Luo Gan. They further explained that Luo Gan and other main criminals in the persecution have been sued in many countries, including Argentina. They advised the Argentine government not to bow to the CCP's pressure and defame and undermine their democratic system.

The Ambassador and secretary listened to the practitioners' explanations and said they would report to the Argentinean Government and transfer the related literature and the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party. She took another copy of the Nine Commentaries for herself. She said she would ask Argentina's government to investigate the incident.

The practitioners also invited the ambassador to view their exercise demonstration, in order to learn more about Falun Dafa.
