Calgary, Canada: Practitioners Hold Anti-torture Exhibit, Request that Huang Huahua Be Denied Entry (Photos)
(Clearwisdom.net) On October 13, 2005, Falun Gong practitioners in Calgary held a press conference demanding that Guangdong Province Governor Huang Huahua be denied entry to Canada. Falun Gong practitioner Kevin Duan, who came from Guangzhou, released his written testimony on the persecution he suffered while he was in Guangdong Province. Then the police abducted his mother on the afternoon of October 14, 2005 nearby his elder sister's home in Shunde, Guangdong Province and took her to the police station to interrogate her for over four hours. Kevin Duan stated that his mother has lost contact with his family and her current whereabouts are unknown.
Anti-torture exhibit in front of Chinese Consulate in Calgary
This Monday, Kevin Duan and other Falun Gong practitioners peacefully demonstrated against the CCP's persecution of Kevin Duan's family in front of the Chinese Consulate in Calgary.
Falun Dafa Association President Li Xun stated in an interview by a reporter from the Calgary Herald that he showed great concern over Kevin Duan's mother's safety. Li Xun said, "We call upon the Canadian Government and human rights organizations to monitor and guarantee her safety."
Canadian human rights lawyer David Matas said in a letter delivered on October 13th to the Canadian Immigration Department, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Judicial Minister, that the CCP's Guangdong Province Governor, Huang Huahua, who is about to visit Canada, is one of the major persons responsible for the persecution of Falun Gong in Guangzhou City and Guangdong Province. Guangdong Province is one of the provinces where the persecution of Falun Gong is the most severe and has the highest death toll. We are asking the Canadian Government to deny Huang Huahua's entry to Canada. Sixty-four Falun Gong practitioners have died as a result of persecution in Guangdong Province. In just the first half of the year, 109 practitioners were arrested. Last month, many more practitioners were arrested.
On Monday and Tuesday, despite strong wind and rain, Falun Gong practitioners held an anti-torture exhibit in front of Parliament Hill to request the Canadian Government to deny entry to Huang Huahua.
Falun Gong practitioner Xin Qihua said in an interview that as these older practitioners demonstrate the torture methods in such cold and bleak weather, they only hope that the Canadian people and government will pay attention to the CCP's persecution of Falun Gong practitioners. In the past few years, Guangdong Province has been one of the worst provinces for the persecution of Falun Gong. The Guangdong Province governor will come to Canada on October 20th, and we hope that Canada will deny his entry.
Guangdong Province Governor Huang Huahua had planned to visit Canada on October 20-25. Canadian Falun Gong practitioners previously demanded that two other CCP officials, Bo Xilai and Xia Deren, who have actively participated in the persecution, be denied entry into Canada in September. Both of them eventually did not make the trip as they had planned.
