On August 31st, 2006, Falun Gong practitioners in Pingtung, Taiwan collected signatures at a busy train station. The signatures were to be faxed to the office of Lee Kuan Yew to call for the unfair charges against Falun Gong practitioners in Singapore to be dropped and to call for the cancellation of deporting a Falun Gong practitioner to Mainland China.
They successfully collected many signatures. The assistant director of the train station also learned two sets of Falun Gong exercises from them.

Ms. Chen said that they went to the director's office to request permission to collect signatures in the train station. The director wasn't in, but the assistant director not only granted permission but also learned two sets of Falun Gong exercises. He also planned to find out more about the organ harvesting on the Internet.
Ms. Chen said some people didn't seem overly concerned at first, but after hearing about the persecution, they changed their minds and signed in support.
A college student from Taoyuan said he had heard about the persecution on the Internet. He said the organ-harvesting crime was too cruel! A student from Kaohsiung was very sad to hear about the persecution. She wished there was something more she could do to help. After signing a petition of support, she was happy she could participate in a noble cause.
Ms. Chen said Falun Gong registered as a legal organisation in Singapore in 1996. It grew without any obstruction from the government before the persecution in China began on July 20th, 1999. However, the legal rights of Falun Gong practitioners in Singapore have been violated since the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) started persecuting Falun Gong in China. Chinese Falun Gong practitioners in Singapore have been discriminated against by the Immigration Department. There have been increasing numbers of such incidents recently. In June, the work permit of a Falun Gong practitioner was cancelled. Some practitioners have been subjected to deportation and unfair lawsuits. Ms. Chen and Falun Gong practitioners request that the Singapore government not assist in the CCP's persecution.
Falun Gong practitioners in Pingtung condemn the Singapore government's assistance with the CCP's persecution of Falun Gong. They called for the Singapore government to drop charges against and cancel plans to deport Falun Gong practitioners.
