(Clearwisdom.net) October 1st, 2006 marks the 57th anniversary of the Chinese Communist Party’s brutal governing of China. Falun Gong practitioners from Queensland held an activity—"Courage Great Wall"—in Brisbane to protest the CCP’s harvesting of organs from living practitioners and to collect signatures to support their efforts. Practitioners called upon the Australian government to support the investigation of the organ harvesting and spoke out in support of the 14 million withdrawals from the CCP.

Practitioners passed out truth-clarifying materials and copies of the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party. Many people talked to practitioners, and many people signed their names on the petition. One practitioner said: "Many Chinese tourists accepted copies of the Nine Commentaries. We hope that more people will recognize the nature of the CCP, which has been a disaster for human beings and should be eliminated completely."

Ms. Zhang told practitioners that she had personally experienced the Cultural Revolution. Her grandfather was a professor at Lanzhou University. Since he had gone to school in Japan, he was persecuted during the Cultural Revolution and died from torture. Ms. Zhang said that the reason her grandfather went to school in Japan was because he wanted to learn something and then return to serve his own country, but he was tortured for what he did.

Ms. Zhang’s mother is half Russian and half Chinese, and she was suspected of being a Russian spy and was tortured, too. Ms. Zhang said that it was a horrible experience. She said that, under the CCP government, people cannot be happy. Although on the surface level the economy in China is developing, the CCP never stops killing or committing other crimes. She hoped that the Chinese people would wake up.

Ms. Zhao, a professor and a Falun Gong practitioner, said: "Since the CCP came to power in 1949, more than 80 million people have died due to its brutality. For the Chinese people and Chinese culture, October 1 is actually is sad day for the whole country. We are holding this activity to expose the brutality of the CCP so that people can have a good understanding of the CCP."

Ms. Zhao also said that, although on a superficial level the economy in China is developing, human rights's violations in China are very severe. The CCP is persecuting a lot of people, including religious groups, those with different opinions, and Falun Gong practitioners. It has been recently exposed that the CCP is even harvesting organs from living Falun Gong practitioners, which is a crime against humanity.

Many people learned the truth and condemned the CCP’s brutality. A Chinese man told practitioners that he recognized the evil nature of the CCP when he was in high school and never liked it.

Falun Gong practitioners from Queensland hope that the Chinese people will wake up and quit the party to ensure their own wonderful futures.
