(Clearwisdom.net) On May 27, joining other countries, practitioners in Paris went to the Chinese Embassy to appeal and support the hearing taking place in Chicago against Jiang Zemin.

A booth was set up offering a variety of color brochures and newspapers exposing the persecution against Falun Gong. Passersby stopped to look at information boards illustrating the beauty of Dafa and the cruelty of the persecution happening in China.

Practitioners explained that the origin of the persecution, however surprising it may be, was from Jiang Zemin's jealousy. Indeed, in 1996 and 1998 when Falun Gong was practiced freely in China, the Chinese authorities did surveys that revealed not only the health benefits of practicing such a method, but also its popularity among the people, since the number of practitioners was around 80 million. This in itself aroused the jealousy of Jiang Zemin who was then the head of China.

Moreover, Jiang, who was never elected by the people, maintains his power largely through corruption and deceit. Seeing that more and more people were practicing Falun Gong and becoming benevolent, honest citizens, he feared that his system to control people would be less efficient. This is another reason that can explain why he launched this unprecedented persecution against Falun Gong.

During the appeal in Paris, several people spontaneously approached practitioners to ask questions. Some seemed surprised by the absurdity of the persecution; some even wished to learn Falun Gong themselves.

In the preparation of this public appeal, the media was also sent the following press release:


Press Release: Paris -- Falun Dafa Information Centre

Complaint Against Jiang Zemin

Appeal for Justice in Front of the Chinese Embassy

On May 27th, in France as in the rest of the world, Falun Gong practitioners will appeal in front of the Chinese Embassies and Consulates. Simultaneously, they will support the Court hearing taking place at the same time in Chicago.

It is a new step in the judicial proceedings accusing Jiang Zemin and the "610 Office" (described by some as the Chinese Gestapo) of genocide and crimes against Falun Gong. On May 27th, the Court of Appeal in Chicago will decide if former Heads of State, such as Jiang Zemin, still benefit from the immunity of "Head of States" and can thereby escape their responsibility in case of crimes of torture, genocide and crimes against humanity.

This appeal, which is taking place in several countries around the world, is an opportunity to better inform the public about the nature of the persecution against this peaceful cultivation method. According to incomplete figures, 960 people have been tortured to death while in custody. The police beat them with electric batons, injected them with nerve damaging drugs, they torture them with cages spiked with nails and bamboo pins under their fingernails, they burn their sensitive body parts...

To end these barbaric means used against the innocent and help them recover their fundamental rights in China, French practitioners will appeal in front of the Chinese Embassy in Paris and ask that Jiang Zemin, the main culprit, be judged by the courts of justice.
