Ireland: Practitioners Hold a Public Hearing in Dublin to Expose Jiang Zemin's Crime of Genocide

On Saturday the 8th of November, Irish Falun Gong practitioners held a public hearing to expose Jiang Zemin’s crimes of Genocide at the top of Grafton Street in the busiest part of central Dublin.

An Irish Falun Gong practitioner, Mr. Donal Maddock, presided over the hearing. He read out the legal definition of Genocide in “The Convention against Genocide” and detailed the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in China that has been directed by Jiang Zemin. The various methods of the persecution toward Falun Gong practitioners in China adopted by the Jiang regime constitute his crime. These methods include illegal imprisonment, brainwashing, illegal forced labour, torture, rape, persecuting practitioners to death, and abuse of psychiatric medicine. To date, practitioners have verified that 800 Falun Gong practitioners have been persecuted to death.

During the hearing, Zhao Ming, a Falun Gong practitioner who has personally experienced persecution and torture in China, detailed the cruel persecution he was forced to undergo. Zhao Ming said in his testimony, “In the labour camp, all tortures and cruel punishments carried out by the police are simply attempting to force Falun Gong practitioners to renounce their cultivation practice. My personal experience showed that the persecution towards Falun Gong is not due to any political reason or any illegal conduct of Falun Gong practitioners. It is purely a persecution of belief and human rights.”

“I had been sent to different cities, different detention centres, prisons for drug addicts, and labour camps during the persecution in China. All these places carry out the same policy of persecution. My personal experience shows that the persecution of Falun Gong in China is not a regional problem or the result of illegal behaviour from individual policemen, but a national terrorist programme that has been directed by the highest authority and carried out by government agencies at different levels nationwide.”

Falun Gong practitioner, Guangyu Jiang, described his experience of being persecuted. He was forced to give up his successful career and lead a life in another country. He was an actor in China, and had played an important role in the famous series, “The Yong Zheng Dynasty.”However, he was illegally detained because he appealed for Falun Gong and was later forced to leave China. Now he is working in a petrol station in Ireland.

Irish practitioner, Mr. Gerald O’Connor gave an account of how he was threatened, beaten, and tortured by Chinese police after appealing for Falun Gong in Beijing.

Ms. Dongxue Dai described the experiences of her two sisters and one brother in China, who have all been detained in China.

Mr. Bao Zhu introduced the situations of the overseas Irish students, Mr. Feng Liu and Ms Fang Yang, who are still being persecuted in China.

Maria McMullan summed up the situation of women and children in the persecution of Falun Gong in China.

Mr. Colm Quinn concluded the hearing by describing how the persecution has been extended to Ireland. In Ireland, there have been two cases of Falun Gong practitioners’ homes being ransacked. In the first case, electronic equipment used to copy truth clarification videos and a television set were stolen. The bedrooms were thoroughly ransacked, but no cash was stolen. The second case occurred after a gathering of Falun Gong practitioners. The house was thoroughly searched, but no valuables or cash was taken. The Chinese Embassy also sent materials slandering to Irish politicians. These materials slandered Falun Gong practitioners and incited hatred towards them.

Overall, the people of Dublin warmly received the hearing. Many of them voiced their concern about the ongoing persecution, stopped to listen and also asked for Falun Gong materials.
