Canada: Commemorating the Peaceful Protest in Beijing 16 Years Ago, and Celebrating over 200 Million CCP Withdrawals
A rally in Ottawa on April 24 commemorated the peaceful protest by Falun Gong practitioners sixteen years ago in Beijing, where they asked for the release of practitioners jailed in Tianjin a few days prior. Then-Premier Zhu Rongji agreed to the release and affirmed their right to practice Falun Gong. Yet three months later, the violent persecution of Falun Gong began, and continues to this day.
A remarkable thing happened on the streets of Beijing 16 years ago this week. It was the beginning of a monumental chain of events whose significance is still playing out across China today. On April 25, 10,000 gathered to peacefully protest what they believed to be unjust. Their concerns were heard by Party Premier Zhu Rongji, and remarkably, by the time they left later that day, their requests had been granted.
Rally commemorates two major events in modern Chinese history: the peaceful protest 16 years ago and a more recent milestone—200 million withdrawals from the Chinese Communist Party.
Peaceful demonstrations by Falun Gong practitioners around the world commemorate the events of April 25, 1999 and call for an end to the 16-year persecution in China.
Events in Melbourne and Brisbane carry on the peaceful, determined efforts of those who have stood up against the persecution of Falun Gong for the past 16 years.
