Indonesia: Practitioners Call on Singapore Government not to Join the CCP in the Persecution of Falun Gong (Photos)
(Clearwisdom.net) Recently, there occurred a series of false charges against Falun Gong practitioners in Singapore. There have also been incidents of denying practitioners' applications for work permits and entry permits. On June 29, 2010, Falun Gong practitioners in Indonesia delivered a letter to the Singapore Embassy to Indonesia, calling on the Singapore government not to follow the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) in the persecution of Falun Gong.
Falun Gong practitioners in Indonesia peacefully appealed in front of the Singapore Embassy at 10:30 a.m. on June 29, 2010. They held a banner reading "Singapore Government, Please Don't Join the Chinese Communist Regime to Persecute Falun Gong" in three languages, Chinese, English and Indonesian. Indonesian Falun Dafa Association President Gatot Machali and spokesperson Mr. Yap delivered the letter to the Singapore Embassy staff. A security officer asked the staff working in the embassy and then told the two practitioners that no officers would come out to accept the letter. Mr. Machali placed the letter on the windowsill of the Guard's Office, hoping that the Singapore Embassy staff would take the letter and transfer their message to the Singapore government.
During the practitioners' peaceful appeal, the embassy staff came out and took photos of the practitioners and then re-entered the embassy, without coming out again.
The appeal drew attention from the local media. Indonesian Falun Dafa Association spokesperson Mr. Yap was interviewed by the local media.
Two Singapore Falun Gong practitioners who had been forced to leave Singapore related their experience.
Ms. Huang Fuqing, originally from China, had worked in Singapore for many years. In August 2008, when Ms. Huang returned to Singapore from attending the Indonesian Falun Dafa Fa conference, the Singapore government denied her entry, and she was left no opportunity to properly handle her rented apartment, daily necessities and banking in Singapore.
Ms. Zhao accompanied her 12-year-old daughter to study in Singapore. When her social visit pass expired, the Singapore government refused to renew her pass and forced her to leave Singapore. The reason for this incident is that Ms. Zhao is a Falun Gong practitioner. Her daughter is left in Singapore to study alone.
Ms. Zhao said in an interview, "We are here on behalf of all Falun Gong practitioners, and all kindhearted people around the world, to peacefully appeal to the Singapore government not to follow the evil communist party, and not to sell its conscience and human rights for the sake of economic interests. Singapore in an independent country, and Singapore's people are kindhearted. Over more than 100 years, communism has slaughtered countless lives. History has indicated that those who follow the communist party will not have a good ending. The Singapore government should awaken, and stop joining the communist regime to persecute Falun Gong, for the good future of Singapore and its people."
