Persecution of Falun Gong Practitioners Intensifies in Haicheng Area, Liaoning Province
(Clearwisdom.net) As the opening of the Olympics approaches, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) becomes more and more frantic. The 610 Office of Haicheng City and the police stations have held several meetings to accelerate the persecution of Falun Gong. Large-scale arrests of people with spiritual beliefs, cultural dissidents, and people who visit appeals offices is taking place, and the persecution against Falun Gong practitioners has severely intensified.
Hold the Olympics in China is supposed to be a good thing, however the CCP is persecuting and killing Chinese people in the name of the Olympics, turning a supposedly peaceful Olympics into another excuse to commit violence. This behavior actually defames the Olympics. I am not against China holding the Olympics, but I am opposed to the CCP persecuting innocent Falun Gong practitioners in the name of the Olympics.
