New York: People from All Walks of Life Rally to Commemorate the Tenth Anniversary of "April 25" Appeal (Photos)
(Clearwisdom.net) On the tenth anniversary of Falun Gong practitioners' "April 25" peaceful appeal, nearly one thousand Falun Gong practitioners in the Greater New York Area and their supporters held a grand parade and rally in Flushing to commemorate this extraordinarily significant date, display the wonderfulness of Falun Dafa, expose the Chinese Communist Party (CCP's) persecution, and call on all righteous people, groups and governments around the world, to make concerted efforts to end the brutal persecution of Falun Gong soon.
New York Assemblyman Michael Fitzpatrick remarked at the rally that he was honored to be able to express his support for Falun Gong. Falun Gong practitioners' freedom of religion should be protected. He will try his best to resist the CCP's infiltration into the United States, and he hopes that the persecution of Falun Gong will end soon.
"Beijing Spring" editor exposes the CCP's lies fabricated to frame Falun Gong
Mr. Hu Ping used his personal experience to expose the CCP's lies. He said that one of his Christian friends told him in person that two days before the April 25th event, he was staying at a friend's home in Beijing. His friend told him that Falun Gong would appeal to the state council appeals office. His friend was not a Falun Gong practitioner, nor did he work at some confidential department, so it can be seen that Falun Gong practitioners had not kept anything a secret prior to their action.
Regarding the label of [slanderous words omitted] the evil CCP imposes upon Falun Gong, Mr. Hu said that many Chinese people do not understand religions or beliefs due to the CCP's atheistic compulsory education, and they are gullible when it comes to the CCP's propaganda.
Falun Gong practitioners are most respectable, the CCP's persecution is bound to fail
Representative of the United China of Peace and Democracy Mr. Zhi Sheng believes that Falun Gong practitioners' "April 25"peaceful appeal ten years ago created a precedent for Chinese people to peacefully resist persecution. He thinks Falun Gong practitioners are morally noble and most respectable.
Professor Liu Guohua, Vice President of the US League of Guardians, one of the initiators of the effort to impeach pro-CCP council members, and a resident of Queens, thinks Falun Gong practitioners are the only inheritors of traditional Chinese culture. The Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance they believe in is the truth of the universe. The CCP's persecution of Falun Gong is bound to fail.
Mr. Wang Jun, President of the China Democracy Party World Union called upon all people who pursue justice and freedom to side with Falun Gong. He said, "Many people do not understand why the CCP persecutes Falun Gong. In fact, it is determined by the CCP's violent nature. Only by thoroughly disintegrating the CCP can Chinese people live a happy and free life." He emphasized, "Without the CCP, there will be a new China."
Former Beijing Normal University Professor exposes a CCP's conspiracy pushed through the April 25 incident
Mr. Sun Yanjun, former professor of Psychology at Beijing Normal University said, "Today, as a former CCP member, I must expose that the appeal ten years ago and the frenzied suppression afterwards were truly the result of a conspiracy of a few high-ranking officials in the CCP. Prior to the suppression, then CCP General Secretary Jiang Zemin once said to the Politburo, 'Why does the general public follow Falun Gong, when Falun Gong speaks, but they do not listen to what our Communist Party says. Does our Communist Party face a ruling crisis?' Later, his words were spread widely inside the Party."
China is facing a huge change, everybody must make a right choice
Mr. Sun Yanjin said, "This persecution has been so evil and so brutal, and affected people so widely, that it is enough to make anyone with a conscience stunned. It has completely broken through the baseline of morality of mankind."
"Right and wrong are very clear, the final trial is coming. It is just a matter of time for the fall of the CCP's bureaucratic group. Chinese society is facing a huge change. Everybody must make a right choice in this great transformation."
After Mr. Sun's speech, Professor Gao Dawei, in charge of the Global Service Center for Quitting the CCP, issued a certificate of quitting the CCP for Sun Yanjun who has publicly withdrawn from the CCP. Professor Gao said that according to the latest report of volunteers for quitting the CCP in China, the higher the ranking of CCP leaders, the easier it is for them to quit, because they have read the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party. They know clearly the CCP's evil nature, they know much more truth than ordinary people, and they are clear that the CCP will disintegrate soon.
Falun Gong practitioner Ms. Zhang Shuangying from New York, exposed how a CCP court illegally sentenced her parents to seven years of imprisonment without any evidence. Mr. Wang Zhiyuan, coordinator of the World Organization to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong (WOIPFG) announced an investigation on how the CCP courts systematically persecute Falun Gong. Ms. Gail Rachlin, representative of the Falun Dafa Information Center, released a report on the persecution that Falun Gong practitioners have been enduring over the past ten years. Falun Gong spokesperson Mr. Zhang Erping called upon all kind people, organizations and governments to learn the facts, choose justice, and choose a good position in the near future.
At the end of the rally, the Divine Land Marching Band composed of Falun Gong practitioners performed "Holy Law-Wheel King," peacefully bringing the rally to an end.
