Denmark: Copenhagen Rally Supporting Twenty-Three Million Withdrawals from the Chinese Communist Party

On the 7th and 8th of July 2007, the Danish branch of the Global Service Centre for Quitting the CCP and the Danish China Human Rights Internet Organisation held a joint rally and parade at Kings New Square in the Danish capital Copenhagen, supporting over twenty three million brave Chinese people who have quit the Chinese Communist Party and its affiliated organisations.

Aside from people in Denmark and its neighbouring countries, over one hundred members of the European Celestial Marching Band, whose members come from different European countries, also came to Copenhagen to attend the rally.

At the rally, a European member of CIPFG (Coalition to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong in China) Leif Bork Hansen, representative of the Swedish Supporting Human Rights in China Vasilios Zoupounidis, representative of the Norwegian China Human Rights Internet organisation Peder Giertsen, representative of the International Human Rights Society (ISHR) Man Yan and Sunny, a Chinese student who currently studies in Finland and whose parents have been illegally detained by the Chinese Communist regime, made speeches.

We are witnessing the Chinese Communist Party's demise

Representative of the Sweden Supporting Human Rights in China Vasilios Zoupounidis said, “We are witnessing history. In a short space of less than three years, a great wave of quitting the Chinese Communist Party has occurred in China, with the daily number of withdrawals now reaching thirty five thousand. This makes us believe that the demise of the Chinese Communist Party is very close.”

He said, “Swedish Supporting Human Rights in China strives to bring basic human rights to the Chinese people. This can only be realised after the collapse of the Chinese Communist Party. Now the Chinese people have chosen a bright future for themselves and for us. The series, The Nine Commentaries on Communist Party by the Epoch Times newspaper thoroughly exposed the evil nature of the Chinese Communist Party. About the evil crimes committed by the Chinese Communist Party, there are too many dark stories. But the darkest event can only be the illegal, large-scale and systematic organ harvesting from living Falun Gong practitioners. This crime against humanity is widely occurring in China and the Chinese Communist Party is responsible for it.”

The pre-condition for Beijing Olympics is that the persecution of Falun Gong must end

Priest Leif Bork Hansen, European member of CIPFG and Chairman of the help refugee association, said, “Each time when we openly discuss human rights problems in China, we have to mention the hidden labour camps and concentration camps where Falun Gong practitioners are detained and their organs are harvested while they are alive. We got rid off these things over a hundred years ago. However re-appears in another place now. This is the same as the persecution of Jews in the Nazi concentration camps, or Stalin’s concentration camps prepared for dissidents. The magical collapse of the Berlin Wall in 1989 exposed Stalin’s concentration camps to the world. Now a person has stood up in China. His actions and words are awakening the conscience of the world. He is the Chinese lawyer Gao Zhisheng. He too has lost his freedom.”

Leif Bork Hansen said, “If the Olympics torch is to be truly ignited in Beijing, there must be a pre-condition: the Chinese Communist regime must release all detained Falun Gong practitioners and stop the harvesting of organs from Falun Gong practitioners for trade.”

Appeal to rescue the illegally kidnapped parents

Nineteen year old Sunny is a Chinese student currently studying in Finland. Her stepfather and Falun Gong practitioner Zhang Weijie were illegally kidnapped by the “6.10” office in Wuhan on March 21st, 2007. Her mother Chen Man searched through all three towns in fifty days and finally found Zhang Weijie who had suffered mental and physical abuse. Soon after they kidnapped Chen Man on June 8th. Sunny said, “My relatives in China have still not seen my kidnapped mother until now. But the “6.10” office admitted that they arrested my mother, but refused to give any reason for the arrest. They also refused visiting by the family. My elderly and sick grandmother not only lost my mother’s care, she has to search for my mother everywhere. I am far away from Wuhan and cannot provide direct help to rescue my parents and look after and comfort my grandmother. I sincerely appeal here to various government and people for help to end this persecution, and rescue my parents and thousands of Falun Gong practitioners who are illegally persecuted.”

Yang Man from the International Human Rights Society made the last speech. He said, “The Danish people have a great tradition of respecting human rights. Demark is also a country where freedom of speech, freedom of belief, freedom of assembly and association are well protected. When people have all these, they don’t feel much. However if they lost all this people would feel miserable and suffer. This is what is happening in China.”

Mr Yang said, “The organisation I work for, the International Human Rights Society has over thirty five thousands members around the world. Since its establishment in 1972, it fought for human rights in the Soviet Union, East Germany, Romania and other countries. It has long time experience of the human rights abuse under the Communist system. What happens in China is the worst situation? For fifty years the Chinese Communist Party promised people deceivingly that through revolution, it would bring people a life like heaven. It told people that rich people are evil and capitalism needed to be abolished. It deceived many poor people and gained political power. After obtaining economic and political power, they said they needed to carry out economic reform. Now they become the new rich. They carry out the worst capitalism. Now the national resources and wealth in China have all gone into their own pockets.”

“Now in order to avoid the condemnation of the world, they bring all the persecution to the underground. It lets people see that China’s economy is booming. Tourists from Denmark went there and saw all the fine things. But what tourists from Denmark and other countries in the world cannot see is hidden in the prisons, forced labour camps and concentration camps. Many innocent people are being persecuted there. The most horrific thing is that they systematically harvest organs from living people and sell the organs from thousands of people detained in these places to the world for profits. You need to wait for five years for an organ in Denmark. But in China you can have a kidney which matches your blood type in a week.”

After the rally, a large parade was held to support the wave of withdrawals from the Chinese Communist Party. Because the days coincided with the annual Jazz festival in Copenhagen, the whole city was filled with a cultural atmosphere.
