While Jiang's regime [referring to the former President of China] has tried to suppress any news of the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in China during the past five years, it has also continuously manufactured lies and fabricated facts in an attempt to cause misunderstanding of, and stir up hatred, towards Falun Gong. With the efforts of Falun Gong practitioners' clarifying the truth, however, the information blockade sustained by Jiang's lies has started to crumble.
The Impact of the Anti-Torture Exhibitions
Since the first anti-torture exhibition was staged by Falun Gong practitioners in New York, practitioners in other places have conducted similar truth-clarifying activities. From Chicago to Houston and to other cities in Canada, Spain, Switzerland and Japan, people everywhere have been shocked by the exhibition. Many people cannot believe that such torture is happening every day in China. It is especially unbearable that the torture is being carried out in order to force people to give up their belief in "Truth, Compassion, and Tolerance." Many people had heard about the persecution of Falun Gong before, but they never knew that it was so serious and so brutal. Some people had tears running down their cheeks before they finished watching the whole exhibition. Some asked anxiously what they could do to help stop the persecution.
The G8 summit was held near Brunswick, Georgia. After the mayor watched the exhibition, he immediately went on a local radio station's talk show to introduce the exhibition to the citizens of Brunswick. The Chief of Police went to the exhibition two days in a row and expressed his appreciation to practitioners for bringing the information about Falun Gong to the City of Brunswick. His wife made a cake for the practitioners to express her appreciation.
A Native American Chief from Arizona said to Falun Gong practitioners, "I represent many Native American tribal people in the U.S. and am a witness to this most evil persecution in human history. So are the sky, the sun, the moon and the stars. In the divine world, we live on this motherland in harmony and peace. The persecution brings hurt and sorrow to my heart. We wish the Great Spirit to be together with you and your country to end this persecution. Let's step onto the beautiful homeward journey."
A western practitioner said that, although she read the UN human rights reports every day, she felt her body and soul shaken to the core when she saw the anti-torture exhibition. Before she was able to finish her sentence, her eyes were full of tears.
Many westerners did not know that Falun Gong practitioners are being persecuted in brainwashing centres, forced labour camps and prisons in China, but the exhibition brought out their human compassion and dignity, and their souls were deeply touched. When Jiang and his regime irrationally persecute innocent people, he underestimates the power of people's conscience and the power of their sense of justice. That these kind and ordinary people object to the persecution and support Falun Gong is quite beyond the explanation of Jiang Zemin's so-called "forces against China." Yet, the real torture occurring in China is far more horrible than the exhibition shows. Some people said, after watching the exhibition, "He (Jiang Zemin) should be hanged!" If the whole reality of the persecution were revealed, how would people react? What end would Jiang Zemin and his accomplices face?
Impressions of the Parades
After five years of concerted effort, Falun Gong practitioners outside China have broken through the ice and become a very important part of their local communities. Although practitioners do not participate in many community activities, when they do, their exercise demonstrations, dancing and singing are so elegant, pure and beautiful that they have earned quite a few awards. During these activities, people are very eager to receive Falun Gong informational materials.
When the assistant to a Member of the Canadian Parliament saw the Falun Gong parade float, she couldn't help praising it, saying, "It's gorgeous! Great!" She asked anxiously where she could learn Falun Gong and how the float and performance were organised. Practitioners told her that the performing and construction were done totally by volunteers. About a week before the parade, because they did not have the financial resources to afford professionals to do the work, the practitioners themselves sewed and constructed the float piece by piece, with their sincere hearts. Hearing this, the assistant became choked with tears when she asked further questions. She said that the Parliamentary Member she worked for had signed a bill condemning the persecution. She said that he resolutely supported the practitioners.
Faced with the truth, Jiang's lies are not only pale and weak, but they also make people feel ill and disgusted. Often we have heard Members of Parliament tell other government officers about throwing reams of defamatory materials and videotapes, brought in by officers from the Chinese Consulate, into the garbage.
People's condemnation of the persecution and their support of Falun Gong cannot be explained by Jiang's regime's so-called "international anti-China forces." Faced with the truth, the "great barrier" crumbles. And lies perpetrated by Jiang Zemin outside China have failed absolutely. Therefore, Jiang's regime has had to employ more secret and cunning tactics. They have attempted to lure other countries with economic and cultural incentives. Soon after Zeng Qinghong arrived in South Africa and the drive-by shooting occurred, Chen Zhili arrived there for a so-called "Year of Culture Exchange." Yet the biggest media corporation in the capital city of South Africa was forbidden from entering the press conference. The "Year of Chinese Culture" is a sham. Whom can they continue to deceive?
For evil to suppress people, it depends upon their inability to judge good from bad and their lack of courage to resist. During the past five years of persecution, Falun Gong practitioners have never yielded, and people of goodwill all over the world are becoming more and more aware of the truth and are having more and more righteous thoughts. They now dare to speak up for Falun Gong. With the support of the forces of justice worldwide, Jiang Zemin has been sued in many countries. The World Organisation to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong, along with cooperating lawyers, are working together to stop the crimes occurring in China and to bring the instigator of this large-scale slaughter, Jiang Zemin, to justice. The international net of punishment is pulling tighter around Jiang's regime and others responsible for the persecution of Falun Gong.
From the Tiananmen Square self-immolation event in 2001 to this year's shooting of practitioners in South Africa, Jiang's regime has been unable to save the situation. The laws of heaven and basic human dignity are fully revealed. The clarion call for the punishment of the murderer has been sounded. No matter what defence Jiang mounts as a last-ditch effort, he cannot stop the flight of the arrow of justice. As a well-known international human rights lawyer said, "Jiang Zemin and his followers cannot escape history's justice. Neither can they escape from their future trial in court. The ultimate trial awaiting Jiang Zemin is around the corner."
