The Dictator Can Kill But the Victims Cannot Appeal -- Changchun Government Illegally Tries Falun Gong Practitioners for Tapping into TV Signal
(Clearwisdom.net) In March of this year, Falun Gong practitioners in Changchun tapped into a cable TV signal and directly told the audience the facts [about the Jiang regime's persecuting and killing Dafa practitioners]. The Changchun government intends to levy heavy jail sentences against these practitioners and has accused them of "destroying broadcast TV facilities," and "using [slanderous words omitted] to interfere with the law." To put it more plainly, this accusation means, "the dictator can kill but the victims cannot appeal."
As of now, dictator Jiang, one of Amnesty International's "human rights scoundrels" has tortured to death at least 480 innocent Falun Gong practitioners. Never have the practitioners' voices been heard on any T.V. channel, nor have their stories been told through any newspapers in China. Falun Gong practitioners who go to Beijing to appeal are immediately arrested and often brutally tortured, either at police stations or in detention centers. The police kidnap and have orders to shoot practitioners who distribute truth clarification flyers that they produce at their own expense. Under such circumstances, why is it not reasonable that practitioners in Changchun tell the public the wrongs done to them through tapping into a T.V. signal? Why is the dictator allowed to kill, but the victims not allowed to appeal?
In Western democratic countries, tapping into a T.V. signal would certainly be wrong, since the people can express their opinions freely and their right to protest and parade is also protected. However, in Mainland China, under the control of Jiang's dictatorship, Falun Gong practitioners have no freedom of speech at all, although this is a right endowed by the Chinese constitution. In this situation, of course they have the right to tap into a T.V. signal. Politician Hu Ping used a vivid metaphor: "Usually people shouldn't jump in and out of their windows, but if robbers block a person's door, can we then blame them for jumping out of the window?"
In Mainland China, the operation of T.V. stations is funded with taxpayers' money. TV programs are supposed to speak for the people, while the people also have the right to know the facts about the dictator's wrongdoings against the people. Right now, the public media machinery has become Jiang's mouthpiece, and this corrupt and cruel dictator shamelessly uses it to boost himself up. At the same time, he uses it to persecute a peaceful group of good people with methods used during the Cultural Revolution. This is truly "destroying broadcast and T.V. facilities." On the other hand, Falun Gong practitioners' tapping into a T.V. signal effectively returned the public machinery to the people and defended people's freedom of speech as well as the people's right to information, and thus upheld the constitution of China and the people's interest.
The Xinhua News Agency even claimed that Falun Gong is organized and has monetary resources. Falun Gong practitioners are being tortured and murdered in China and harassed abroad. Don't they have the right to get together and protect their rights in a peaceful and legitimate way? As for financial resources, Falun Gong practitioners have their own jobs, and many of them are quite successful people. What's wrong with them doing meaningful things with the money they earned?
As for Jiang, he reaps without sowing and shamelessly appropriates the government's money. While so many workers are laid off and so many peasants are forced to sell their blood for money, Jiang spends astronomical amount of money, earned from the blood and sweat of the taxpayers, to buy a luxury plane for himself and allows his son to use public funds for his company. At the same time, Jiang spent tremendous amounts of money to build an organization called the "610 Office," an agency specifically created to persecute Falun Gong, with absolute power over each level of administration in the Party and all other political and judiciary systems. Authorities from the "610 Office" kidnap Falun Gong practitioners and send them into brainwashing classes, where the practitioners are physically and mentally tortured. This is truly "using an evil organization to interfere with the law." By contrast, Falun Gong practitioners resist the evil with peaceful means and they persevere when faced with brutal torture and threats of murder. They are upholding justice and the interests of mankind, and they should receive support from all of us.
