Canada: Practitioners Protest Thai Government Assisting the CCP in the Persecution of Falun Gong

On December 10th, 2005, in order to protest the rape of Falun Gong practitioners by Chinese Communist Party (CCP) policeman He Xuejian, Falun Gong practitioners held a quiet sit-in on the roadside opposite the Chinese Embassy in Bangkok, Thailand. They clarified the truth and handed out truth-clarification materials to passersby to call for an end to the persecution of Falun Gong. Around noon, several police officers and vehicles came in and out of the Chinese embassy. Several dozen uniformed police and plainclothes police crossed the road and forcibly searched practitioners' bags, dragged practitioners away and grabbed their banners, causing injury to practitioners and their personal belongings. When the practitioners told the police about Falun Gong and exposed the Chinese Embassy's wrongdoing, several police officers expressed that they did not want to come harass them, but the Chinese Embassy asked them to do so.

A representative for the Canadian Falun Dafa Association, Zhang Zhaojin, announced the latest news from Thailand: The Thai police threatened that if practitioners went to the Chinese Embassy again, they would arrest them. Today (December 14th) practitioners did not plan to go to the embassy in Bangkok; they went to Pattaya, 150 km away from Bangkok. However, the police arrested three practitioners who handed out truth-clarification materials there. The practitioners arrested are Zhang Mengye, Luo Muluan and Jia Yachuan.

Zhang Mengye was a former senior lecturer at Guangdong Provincial Electric Power School, and was a fellow classmate of Chinese President Hu Jintao at Tsinghua University. On January 14th, 2000, Mr. Zhang was arrested and sent to Guangzhou City No.1 Forced Labour Camp to serve a more than two-year term. He was once handcuffed to a big tree for three consecutive days, and was put in agonising positions where he could neither stand nor squat. On May 18th, 2002, Zhang Mengye was arrested again by personnel from the 610 Office and sent to a brainwashing centre in Huangpu, Guangzhou City to undergo brutal brainwashing. On several occasions, he was tied up tightly and lifted upside down, and his head dunked into a toilet bowl in an extremely foul and brutal torture. Zhang Mengye successfully left Mainland China on November 11th, 2005.

Appeal in Vancouver

On the afternoon of December 14th, 2005, Falun Gong practitioners in Vancouver came to the Thai Consulate to deliver a letter to protest the fact that the Thai police interfered with Falun Gong practitioners' peaceful protest activities opposite the Chinese Embassy in Bangkok, Thailand. The Thai police illegally detained three Falun Gong practitioners under directions from the CCP regime. This act has seriously violated the practitioners' human rights.

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has become notorious in the international community for persecuting Falun Gong practitioners who cultivate Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. In so doing, it has put itself in an unprecedented dilemma. And with 6.3 million people have declared their resignations from the CCP and its affiliated organisations on the Internet to date the CCP now faces a dead end. The Thai government should recognise the situation, abide by international norms, not be manipulated by the CCP and not interfere with Thai Falun Gong practitioners' peaceful and legal truth clarification activities.

Appeal in Toronto

At noon on December 14th, 2005, several dozen Falun Gong practitioners gathered in front of the Thai Consulate in Toronto to protest the Thai police's acts of violence against Falun Gong practitioners who peacefully protested in front of the Chinese Embassy in Thailand on December 10th, International Human Rights Day.

Falun Gong practitioners protest in front of the Thai Consulate

Representative for Falun Gong practitioners, Kevin Yang, pointed out that the Thai police's behaviour has seriously violated Falun Gong practitioners' human rights. In particular, when the international community unanimously condemns the CCP's atrocities against Falun Gong practitioners, and condemns the biggest human rights abuse in modern times, that such a thing occurred in Thailand is extremely disgraceful. Mr. Yang called for Thailand not to dance with the "wolf."

Zhang Zhaojin delivered a letter to the Thai Consulate in Toronto. The letter called for the Thai police to immediately release the three Falun Gong practitioners arrested. In addition, it asked Thailand not to fall prey to the CCP's lies, not to succumb to CCP pressure and instead, to help stop the persecution against Falun Gong.
