On January the 28th, some delegates attending the international conference on ‘Genocide in the New Era’, together with practitioners from Europe, North America and Asia held a press conference in the Swedish Parliament, regarding the French Government’s treatment of Falun Gong and their kowtowing to Beijing. During the period of the Chinese New Year Parade and Hu Jintao’s visit to France, the Paris police unreasonably arrested several Falun Gong practitioners who did not do anything wrong. At the press conference, practitioners made an announcement on this incident.
Marco Hsu, a Danish practitioner, shared his experience of being arrested by five French Policemen when he was watching the Chinese New Year Parade in Paris; he was arrested simply because he was wearing a yellow scarf.
A famous U.S human rights Attorney, Ms. Terri Marsh, facilitated a number of human rights lawyers around the world to write and send an open letter to the French Government, expressing their deep regret for what the French Government had done. They also emphasised that this incident has breached the basic requirements of human rights. They urged the French Government to hold an in-depth investigation into this unfortunate issue.
