(Clearwisdom.net) "What on the earth are you doing? Release her immediately!" exclaimed two elderly German ladies. In front of them was a "policewoman" with a Chinese police officer's uniform using an electric baton to torture a woman. The woman was tied up and her body was covered in blood and wounds. Every time the electric baton hit her face, her whole body trembled and she groaned with pain. The scene shocked many passers-by who stopped to take a look.
Reenacting the torture suffered by Ms. Gao Rongrong in front of the Chinese Consulate in Munich
Falun Gong practitioners explained to the two ladies and the surrounding audience that this was only a simulated reenactment, with the purpose of exposing the torture suffered by female Falun Gong practitioner Gao Rongrong. Their purpose to help more people know about the ongoing brutal persecution of those who practice Falun Gong in China. Practitioners took the opportunity to tell people that the torture of Falun Gong practitioners is occurring every minute in China and that the methods used are many times more brutal than what was displayed here. Many people eagerly accepted the informational materials about Falun Gong. People also signed the petition supporting the Falun Gong practitioners' appeal for an immediate end to the persecution.
The above photos depict the scene outside the Chinese Consulate in Munich on June 26. It was also the first time that Falun Gong practitioners held an anti-torture exhibition at the Chinese Consulate in Munich. The exhibition simulated Falun Gong practitioner Gao Rongrong's suffering of seven hours of continuous electric shock torture by the Chinese police, which left her face horribly disfigured.
June 26 was United Nations Day in Support of Torture Victims. Practitioners in Munich and nearby areas gathered at the Chinese Consulate to protest against the six-year campaign of genocide and the use of hundreds of brutal torture methods against innocent Falun Gong practitioners. They demanded that China stop the persecution immediately. Practitioners also displayed banners reading, "Bring Jiang Zemin to Justice," "The Chinese Communist Party Openly Carries Out a Policy of Murder, Gao Rongrong was brutally killed on the 16th of June 2005" and other messages, in both German and Chinese. They also displayed Gao Rongrong's photo and posters showing the wide spread of Falun Gong around the world, as well as high-quality prints of oil paintings by Falun Gong practitioners which further expose the tortures used against practitioners in China.
Gao Rongrong, who was brutally killed by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) last week, suffered terribly before her death. Her face was continuously shocked with high-voltage batons for seven hours by police officers Tang Yuebao and Jiang Shaohua. As a result, her face was horribly disfigured. When this news and the before and after photos of the torture reached the outside world, the world's people were taken aback. Faced with the worldwide condemnation, not only did the CCP not change its brutal torture policy, they went even further and killed Gao Rongrong. Such blatant disregard for the law and human rights is an open challenge to the dignity and conscience of the whole of humanity.
For six years, in order to eliminate Falun Gong, the CCP has used an entire nation's resources to carry out former CCP leader Jiang Zemin's policy of "Defaming their reputation, bankrupting them financially and destroying them physically." Tens of millions of Falun Gong practitioners in China have been facing the Chinese regime's constant threats, brainwashing, arrest, the fear of and the reality of being detained in forced labor camps, prisons, mental hospitals and extreme torture. The whole purpose of this brutal and nationwide persecution is to force Falun Gong practitioners to give up their belief in "Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance."
The photos and evidence provided by practitioners' personal experiences, as well as that of their relatives and friends, all indicate that the methods used by the CCP against Falun Gong practitioners are extremely brutal, incorporating both ancient and modern forms of torture and persecution. Three recently-defected Chinese officials in Australia have exposed the bloody persecution of Falun Gong practitioners with their own first-hand experiences and material evidence.
