Taiwan and Macau: Rally Commemorates the April 25 Peaceful Appeal
(Minghui.org) To commemorate the 20th anniversary of the April 25th peaceful appeal in Beijing, Falun Gong practitioners are holding events worldwide. They raise awareness of the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) persecution of Falun Gong, including the CCP's state-sanctioned organ harvesting from living practitioners. They also talk about the 330 million Chinese people who have withdrawn from the CCP and its youth organizations.
Rally in Hualien, Taiwan
Falun Gong practitioners held a rally in Qixingtan, Hualien, Taiwan on April 20, 2019. Guo Ying-yi, deputy chief executive officer of the Eastern Joint Service Center of the Executive Yuan; Hualien County Councilor Chuang Chi-cai; and Hualien City representative Hsie Hao-jie accepted an invitation to participate in the rally.
The practitioners held banners with the words “Keep Steadfast Belief in Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance,” “The 20th Year of Falun Gong Practitioners' Protesting the Persecution,” and “Stop the Persecution of Falun Gong.” They also demonstrated the Falun Gong exercises. Many Chinese tourists paused to watch and take photos.
Guo Ying-yi Participates in the Rally
Guo Ying-yi said that people from throughout the world know that Falun Gong practitioners are good people and that only the CCP regime persecutes practitioners.
He indicated that people born in Taiwan are happy to have freedom of belief, and enjoy human rights. He said everyone must cherish this hard-won freedom of belief and human rights. He stressed that the Taiwanese people must protect this land and support Falun Gong practitioners, in an effort to stop the persecution as soon as possible.
Chuang Chi-cai Attended the Rally
Hualien County Councilor Chuang Chi-cai spoke of the CCP’s threat to Taiwan by invading it with their military, which brings fear to the people of Taiwan.
He said that the CCP has persecuted Falun Gong in China for 20 years, and is known for its state-sanctioned organ harvesting from living Falun Gong practitioners. Such atrocities cannot be tolerated. He called on Taiwan’s leaders to pay attention to such issues. People from all walks of life should stand up to condemn the CCP’s human rights abuses and jointly end the persecution.
Rally in Macau Commemorates the April 25 Appeal
Falun Gong practitioners in Macau held a rally outside the St. Dominic's Church on April 20, 2019. They also raised awareness of the CCP's persecution and helped Chinese people renounce the Party and its youth organizations.
It rained non-stop in Macau from April 1 to the day of the rally, but the wind and rain stopped prior to the rally. There were many tourists and residents shopping in the area where Falun Gong practitioners positioned themselves.
When Falun Gong practitioners in Macau held up large banners with the words “Commemorating the 20th Anniversary of Falun Gong Practitioners' April 25th Peaceful Appeal,” “Bring Jiang Zemin, Luo Gan, Zhou Yongkang, Liu Jing, Zeng Qinghong, and Bo Xilai to Justice,” and “Falun Dafa is Good,” a large number of tourists and residents did not hesitate to read the banners and posters exposing the CCP's crimes.
Three Chinese tourists who attended the Falun Gong rally were reading the posters and banners. A practitioner told them about Falun Gong and asked if they had heard about the movement to quit the CCP.
The practitioner explained that if one quits the CCP, they will not be implicated in the atrocities committed by the CCP when the Party loses power. The three tourists agreed to quit the CCP organizations.
