  • Germany: Many Politicians and People in the Legal Community are Concerned about the Lawsuit Against Jiang

    In October of 2003, German Dafa practitioners wrote letters to 3,246 German judges, 2,400 criminal lawyers, 192 professors of criminal law, and some members of Parliament in order to tell them about Jiang Zemin and the government officials who, together with policemen, have persecuted Falun Gong in China and are to be charged with crimes of Genocide and Torture.
  • Ireland: Irish Student Organisations Appeal for Falun Gong Practitioners Suffering Persecution in China

    The rally was followed by a march to the Irish Prime Minister’s Office, where representatives of eight Students’ Unions and Societies from USI and major Dublin universities handed in a co-signed letter. They then went on to the Chinese Embassy to hand in a letter appealing for justice but the Embassy officials refused to accept it.
  • Letter from Dublin Students to the Irish Prime Minister: "Ireland should do all in its power to help bring this absurd persecution to an early end."

    "The campaign directed at eradicating Falun Gong is a systematic state terrorism and a policy that has drained China's fragile economy. The assurances given in the EU China dialogue over the past few years have changed nothing on the ground; everyday new death cases are being received. The Chinese consulates and officials even continue to spread slanderous material concerning Falun Gong in the hope that this will incite hatred or at least doubt in the minds of overseas politicians. Indeed politicians in Ireland have received such material. Their aim is clear: To justify their campaign against the practice so that they can continue their brutal suppression and genocide while escaping condemnation from the international community."
  • UK: Human Rights Lawyer Joins Practitioners to File a Lawsuit Against Jiang Zemin

    A UK human rights lawyer has agreed to work on a lawsuit against Jiang Zemin, which has been initiated by UK Falun Gong practitioners.

  • Belgium: Renowned Lawyer Georges-Henri Beauthier talks about the Progress of the Lawsuit against Jiang

    The law requires the federal prosecutor to make a decision regarding four set stipulations. He did not mention that China violates international human rights conventions, nor did he mention that China does not sentence criminals fairly. Both Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch have pointed out that these illegal acts exist in China.
  • Sweden: More People stand up to Defend the Human Rights of Falun Gong Practitioners

    Since practitioners exposed the Gothenburg’s Chinese consulate’s attempts to stop a local radio station from broadcasting “Falun Gong Time” by using Sino-Swedish relations as a threat, people from various parts of Sweden have expressed great concern about the issue. Various media organisations continued to report on the news for days. Parliamentary members, professors of law and human rights organisations have commented on the issue one after another by condemning this act by the Chinese consulate that disregarded Swedish law and violated a democratic country’s freedom of speech.
  • Message from a Swedish Member of Amnesty International: “You have done very well. I wish you success!”

    In China, "people are being killed because they appeal to the government and because they are part of a peaceful group. In the distant land of Sweden, the Chinese Consul is using the ship from Guangzhou that is sailing to Gothenburg as an excuse to not let us speak and is also telling the local radio station to follow in the footsteps of the Chinese consulate and change what they broadcast. This was a threat and the consulate should be punished."
  • Director of the International Centre of Culture in Albania: “I want to express my solidarity with the Falun Dafa movement.”

    She likes Zhang Cuiying’s works “not only because of the quality but also because of the spirit of the paintings. They’re nothing to do with politics - different meanings come from her heart.” She is also sympathetic to Cuiying, who was a victim of brutal persecution at the hands of Jiang Zemin’s regime because she practises Falun Dafa.
  • Finland: A Righteous Human Rights Lawyer

    “Today I am entrusted by the Falun Dafa Association of Finland to hand in a lawsuit against Luo Gan for crimes of genocide and torture and for the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in China...I think this business is to preserve justice for mankind. A criminal who has committed such crimes as genocide, will have to face the consequence of being arrested while visiting a foreign country.”
  • Finnish People Support Falun Gong during Luo Gan's Visit

    In the afternoon, practitioners went to the airport and held a peaceful demonstration as Luo Gan arrived in Rovaniemi. A journalist and a photographer from one of the largest newspapers came to Lapland to interview us. The next day there was a large article on the first page in one of Lapland’s largest newspapers.
  • UK Human Rights Groups and Public Support Practitioners' Family Rescue Campaign

  • UK Lawyers Support the Lawsuit against Jiang Zemin

    A lot of solicitors are very interested in the lawsuit against Jiang. Many answered the letters, providing suggestions and useful information.

  • Russia: A Gift for Local Falun Dafa Practitioners

    On one occasion, a local T.V station interviewed a practitioner about our activity and also agreed to make a documentary on Falun Dafa. After a few days, the T.V station sent the finished documentary on tape to a practitioner, together with a gift. The gift was an ornate white jade plate with the words “I love Falun Dafa” written on it.
  • Ireland: Speech by Psychiatrist Declan Lyons on the Persecution of Falun Gong Practitioners

    "What is happening today in China, however, is the blatant misuse of psychiatry to act as a direct agent of social control and to be a tool of that state’s suppression of Falun Gong. Since the start of the persecution 4 years ago, a steady stream of practitioners have been labelled as mentally ill and been detained involuntarily in state forensic psychiatric hospitals...We know of between 1500-2000 such admissions of Falun Gong practitioners where families have refuted the presence of any mental illness."
  • Greece: A Kind-hearted and Sincere Man

    Early this year, Mr. Fannos personally wrote a letter to the former vice secretary general, Hu Jin-Tao, asking him to follow public opinion and stop the persecution of Falun Gong; the letter was returned. Mr. Fannos once again wrote a letter to the Chinese ambassador accredited to Greece, Mr. Tang Keqi and requested he pass on the information. The letter was returned again on May 22. As a result of Mr. Fannos criticism of human rights in China, his computer in his shipping and travel company was attacked by a hacker.
