It’s been 12 years since the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) started the persecution of Falun Gong. Incomplete statistics show that over 100 thousand practitioners have been locked in forced labor camps and received illegal sentencing, and that there are 3,448 verified deaths due to the persecution. During the past 12 years, practitioners overseas have continued to expose the brutal persecution to the world's people and call for an end to it.
Vlad has been practicing Falun Dafa for five months. He wanted to let people know how brutal the on-going persecution was in China. “Many westerners don't know that the CCP put practitioners in prisons and slave labor camps to torture them and force them to give up their beliefs. I want to tell people the truth and ask them for support (to end the persecution),” said Vlad.
Brenna is a student. She was shocked upon learning that the CCP has illegally removed practitioners’ organs while they were still alive and sold the organs for profit. “I think (the live organ removal) is a big mistake and should be stopped!” Brenna hopes the other governments will step up and help to stop the bloody crimes.
Robert from Korea signed the petition to protest the CCP’s persecution. He said, “I detest the Chinese Communist regime. The CCP treats its people unfairly.” Before he left, Robert encouraged the practitioners to continue their efforts and wished them success.
Stephen, a student at Queensland University of Technology, is a practitioner. He said that the CCP has launched various movements since it came to power. “The movements resulted in 80 million unnatural deaths of Chinese people. More and more people, through us telling the facts of the persecution, have come to understand the evilness of the CCP and chose to side with kindness and justice.”
Many of the Brisbane residents and tourists signed the petition to support the practitioners’ efforts to stop the persecution.
