(Minghui.org) “Great! Law safeguards justice.” So said a woman named Anna, visiting Helsinki from Italy on October 26, 2015. Falun Gong practitioners set up in the downtown area for two days to collect signatures supporting lawsuits against former Chinese dictator Jiang Zemin. Many passers-by paused to learn about the persecution and signed the petition.

Falun Gong practitioners raise awareness in downtown Helsinki, Finland.Passers-by sign the petition against Jiang Zemin after learning about the persecution.

Falun Gong practitioners held large banners reading “Stop the Live Organ Harvesting” and “Bring Jiang Zemin to Justice” on a downtown square on October 26. After learning about the brutal persecution, many passers-by expressed support for lawsuits against Jiang.

Anna and Banre from Italy signed a petition to support the lawsuits.

Pauli from Finland said heavily that it was hard to imagine that organ harvesting atrocities have continued in China for over ten years. Jiang must be brought to justice.


In 1999, Jiang Zemin, as head of the CCP, overrode other Politburo standing committee members and launched the violent suppression of Falun Gong.

He abused his power in orchestrating the persecution, leading to over 3800 confirmed deaths of innocent practitioners due to police violence. Millions of practitioners suffer tortures in prisons, detention centers, and brainwashing centers. Many were even killed for their organs. Jiang Zemin is directly responsible for the inception and continuation of the brutal persecution.

Under his personal direction, the Chinese Communist Party established an extralegal security organ, the “610 Office,” on June 10, 1999. The organization overrides police forces and the judicial system in carrying out Jiang's directive regarding Falun Gong: to ruin their reputations, cut off their financial resources, and destroy them physically.

Chinese law allows for citizens to be plaintiffs in criminal cases, and many practitioners are now exercising that right to file criminal complaints against the former dictator.
