Falun Gong practitioner Zuno said that since the Singapore media announced that the former head of the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) 610 Office Li Lanqing, invited by Lee Kuan Yee, would be conferred an honorary doctorate by the National University of Singapore, there occurred a series of incidents in Singapore from an attempt to repatriate Falun Gong practitioners, to the banning of Falun Gong practitioners from holding truth clarification activities, to charging Falun Gong practitioners in court.
Zuno pointed out that prior to "interrogating" Falun Gong practitioners, the major Chinese and English media in Singapore published a series of slanderous articles directed by high level authorities. For example, one of the articles claimed that Falun Gong practitioner Ms. Huang Chay Hua was suspected of "illegal assembly" for doing the exercises and protesting in front of the Chinese Consulate alone. Falun Gong practitioners peaceful and law-abiding activities in public places are slandered as "sabotaging the public order." The argumentation in these articles is absurd.
Zuno pointed out that more and more evidence on the CCPs genocidal persecution of Falun Gong has been revealed, for example, its crime of harvesting organs from living Falun Gong practitioners. Recently, a former Canadian MP and a human rights lawyer conducted a two-month investigation into this and released an independent investigative report, confirming that the CCPs inhuman atrocities are true and are still happening.
Zuno emphasized that with the CCPs evil nature being more and more widely known, more and more Chinese people having severed ties with it, and there have been more than 11.8 million Chinese who have renounced the CCP and its affiliated organizations. The CCPs crimes against the Chinese people, including more than 100 million kind Falun Gong practitioners, are so huge so as to be intolerable and unpardonable by heavenly principles. Zuno said, "We came to the Singapore Consulate in San Francisco to deliver the petition. We hope that the Singapore government truly thinks of the future of the people of Singapore, does not assist the CCP in the persecution of Falun Gong, and drops the illegal charges against Falun Gong practitioners."
The Singapore Consulate is located in a building in the Market Street, a busy financial center. As it was close to noon time, there were many people in the street. At 1:00 p.m. Falun Gong practitioners from the Bay Area came to outside the Singapore Consulate. Some practitioners unfurled banners calling for an end to the persecution, some distributed truth clarification flyers stating that the Singapore government assists the CCP in the persecution of Falun Gong, and illegally charges practitioners in court.
As soon as the banners were unfurled, people passing by focused their attention on them. Many people took the truth clarification materials and some stopped to inquire about the situation in detail.
One middle-aged lady walked up and said that she knew that Falun Gong practitioners have been brutally persecuted by the CCP in China. She also heard about that Falun Gong practitioners have had their organs removed while still alive. She asked, "Has the Singapore government been also involved in the persecution of Falun Gong?"
A practitioner told her that Falun Gong was registered as a legal association in 1996 in Singapore. Prior to the CCPs persecution of Falun Gong, Falun Gong flourished in Singapore, and there never occurred any incident against it. Meanwhile, since July 1999, the Singapore governments attitude toward Falun Gong has changed, and there constantly occurred incidents that violated practitioners human rights. All these were closely related to the interactions between the high level authorities in Singapore and the CCP, and even more were resulted in the CCPs direct pressure and enticement.
The lady shook her head and said, "What a pity!" She then expressed that she wanted to do something to help stop the persecution. The practitioner told her to help more people learn about the true situation of Falun Gong, and urge the American government to support the Coalition to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong to go to China to investigate the persecution of Falun Gong. The lady nodded and left with related truth clarification materials.
