  • Spain: Clarifying the Truth to Amnesty International Before Filing the Lawsuit Against Jiang and Luo

    "The intention to sue Jiang is not to win the case but to let more people know about the evilness of the persecution and to let more people know about the truth in order to stop this persecution. This persecution isn’t just aimed at Falun Gong practitioners, but it’s also aimed at humankind’s precious morality and the principles of the universe. Therefore, the victims of this persecution are not only Falun Gong practitioners, but people throughout the world."

  • WOIPFG Participated in the Lawsuit in Iceland Against Luo Gan, the Head of the “610” Office

    This organisation, that has no legal foundation, is similar to Nazi Germany’s Gestapo and also the teams during China’s Cultural Revolution.

  • Swiss NGO Writes to Hong Kong Authorities about Appeal of 15 Falun Gong Practitioners

    "ACAT-Switzerland has been attentively observing the last year’s trial against [fifteen] Falun Gong practitioners in Hong Kong, among them four Swiss nationals...With indignation we learned that all defendants were found guilty in August 2002. The charges brought against them don’t have any legal foundation...We therefore consider the August 2002 judgement arbitrary and support the defendants’ appeal on the case. We therefore urge the court dealing with the appeal in the next days to appreciate the facts and evidences strictly from the point of view of the Hong Kong legislation and to acquit the defendants of all charges."

An international coalition of lawyers has also announced a coordinated effort to file more lawsuits against Jiang Zemin in the coming months.

  • International Society for Human Rights writes to Tung Chee Hwa calling for an End to Article 23

    "This is Jiang’s horrific form of genocide: It is a terror that does not just destroy lives, but aims to destroy faith. It is a terror that should not be allowed to exist in the modern world. It is a terror that must be brought to justice. That’s the reason why several lawsuits against Jiang Zemin have been launched. Why should Hong Kong prepare a law which would import the persecution of Falun Gong to Hong Kong, when other Countries are suing the responsible people for the persecution of Falun Gong?"
  • Speech for Rally at Parliament Hill

    There can be no excuses. No silence. No looking away. Instead all governments must, with determination and resolve, do everything possible to ensure that Chinese officials, no matter how high or low their office, who have been responsible for committing human rights violations are held to account for what they have done. That is what justice demands. That is what human rights demand.
