United States: New York Dafa Practitioners Commemorate the 4th Anniversary of the April 25 Peaceful Appeal

From 9:00 am to 3:00 pm of April 25, 2003, New York Dafa practitioners gathered in front of the Chinese Consulate in New York to commemorate the 4th Anniversary of the April 25 peaceful appeal.

On April 25, 1999, in order to strive for a just and free environment to practise Falun Gong, approximately 10,000 Falun Gong practitioners exercised their basic civil rights: they went to Beijing to peacefully appeal, and their demeanour embodied the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. Unfortunately, the Jiang regime used this peaceful appeal as an excuse to launch an inhuman persecution against one hundred million Falun Gong practitioners. In order to justify the persecution, the Jiang regime has used its power to fabricate numerous lies to slander Falun Gong, and used all kinds of media to spread these lies throughout the world. Nearly four years have passed, and Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and other international organisations have cited hundreds of death cases and thousands of torture cases due to the persecution.
