On October 13th, 2005, dozens of practitioners went to the Hong Kong Legislative Council to deliver copies of the public statement from the Falun Dafa Association to Hong Kong council members and officials who were attending the Chief Executive's press conference on Policy Address. The statement was published on October 9th. For the welfare of Hong Kong as well as each citizen, practitioners wanted to take the opportunity to formally notify the Hong Kong government and related individuals not to continue to act as accomplices of the Chinese Communists in the persecution.
Hong Kong practitioners held a peaceful appeal outside the Legislative Council, warning the HKSAR government not to act as an accomplice of the Chinese Communist Party in the persecution. Outside the Legislative Council compound, a practitioner read the Falun Dafa Association statement aloud.
"The persecution of persons based solely on their practice of the principles of "Truthfulness, Benevolence, and Forbearance" is unconscionable. Ever since the publication of The Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party, Chinese people have more clearly recognized the nature of the CCP and the evil nature of the persecution. More than 4.8 million have withdrawn from the CCP and its related organizations. Heaven's destruction of the CCP is a historical inevitability. Gods must punish those criminals who have sinned against Falun Dafa. Those who refuse to do the right thing and instead continue to follow Jiang's scoundrel regime's persecution policies will be severely punished as perpetrators of unforgivable crimes."
"At this critical historical moment, the Falun Dafa Association has made a special announcement: From today on, overseas Falun Gong practitioners will file civil or criminal lawsuits against all important government or CCP officials who participate in or continue to implement the persecution of Falun Gong and as a result, commit new crimes in addition to those they have already perpetrated against Falun Gong."
For those who had participated in the persecution and now no longer want to continue the wrongdoings after they learned the truth, the statement said: "...one of the purposes of the sacred Fa of Falun Gong is to save people, including people in all social statuses. Even for those who have committed wrongdoings, there is still an opportunity for them to abandon the evil path and choose to be good. For all those who have committed crimes against Falun Gong but want now to correct their mistakes, they can submit, under safe circumstances, a guarantee statement or regret letter to Minghui (Clearwisdom Net) or to any regional Falun Dafa Association to be archived. We will not investigate the various crimes of those who are determined to correct their mistakes. However we will continue to monitor their actions."
Practitioners also distributed copies of the Statement to staff of the council as well as passersby. Seeing the activity, an old couple came up to read the banners. When a practitioner handed them a copy of the statement, they glanced at it and said that they came from Mainland to sightsee. They asked about the persecution. Before they left, the couple told the practitioner sincerely: "We wish you success!"
