Rally in Sydney Calls for Support to Stop the Persecution
(Minghui.org) Falun Gong practitioners and supporters in Sydney held a rally at Martin Place on July 20, 2015, which marked 16 years of Falun Gong's peaceful resistance to the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) persecution.
Rally speakers included Lucy Zhao, president of the Falun Dafa Association of Australia, James Shaw, Parramatta City Councilor, human rights activist Bob Vinnicombe, China expert Dr. Ling Xiaohui and persecution victims. Many stopped to show support and to sign a petition calling for an end to forced organ harvesting.
Parramatta Councilor James Shaw gives a speech. He pointed out that because of the Free Trade Agreement, “There's a real opportunity to say to the Australian government that the concerns about human rights we have in China are very much an issue not just in China, but here in Australia.”
