21st anniversary of China's persecution of the Falun Gong
This is the 21st anniversary of the Communist Party of China's persecution of Falun Gong in China. The CPC throw them in jail for their religious beliefs and execute them to order for organ harvesting. This atrocity needs to come to an end. Here is their press release: World Leaders should not enable the Chinese Communist Regime with silence to its Criminal Behaviors
On April 25, 1999, more than 10,000 people who practice Falun Gong peacefully petitioned the Chinese central government in Beijing for their right to practice their faith, after dozens of fellow practitioners were arrested in a neighbouring city.
For the past 20 years, April 25 was marked with vigils in front of the Chinese Embassy and consulates worldwide to commemorate the courage of the Chinese practitioners for standing up for their belief.
This year, a virtual candle light vigil by those in Canada on the internet practicing social distancing, captures an important message to the world in touching detail (also see https://youtu.be/8G4OzfrY4gM).
Till now the brutal persecution of Falun Gong has lasted over 20 years. Credible evidence has been reported by Freedom House that Falun Gong practitioners are the largest contingent of prisoners of conscience in China and that they are being “forcibly killed for their organs on a large scale.” An independent people’s tribunal headed by Sir Geoffrey Nice QC, has found that this illegal organ harvesting amounts to a crime against humanity.
"For over 21 years that the persecution of Falun Gong has continued in China, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has deceived the world and used every means to keep the international community quiet in the face of this brutal persecution,” said Xun Li, President of Falun Dafa Association of Canada.
“Now the same nature of deceit and recklessness of the CCP has caused this deadly pandemic throughout the world, by lying to and deceiving the world about the virus outbreak and delaying response, " added Li.
During the Virus outbreak, at least 17 deaths of people who practice Falun Gong and 747 cases of abuse and arrest were reported. In 2019, over 6000 people who practice Falun Gong were illegally arrested and 96 people were reported killed in police custody.
Canadian Citizen and business woman, Ms. Sun Qian, who has been illegally incarcerated for more than three years, has faced abuse, torture and intense brainwashing sessions. nine others with Canadian ties are also suffering in prison in China.
“On this Anniversary of Falun Gong’s peaceful appeal for freedom and justice, we call on Prime Minister Trudeau and the Canadian government to condemn the CCP for the illegal persecution of Falun Gong and to release all of those suffering in China including Canadian Citizen Ms. Sun Qian,” said Li.
