At noon on December 15th, 2005, Falun Gong practitioners rallied in front of the Thai Embassy in Washington, DC. They were there to appeal against the violent acts of the Thai police against practitioners who were appealing in front of Chinese Embassy to Thailand on December 10th, International Human Rights Day.

On December 10th, opposite the Chinese Embassy in Bangkok, practitioners in Thailand continued to protest the rape of two female practitioners by police in China. They also distributed materials and clarified the truth to passersby, calling for public action to end the persecution.
Close to noon, under the Chinese Embassy's instruction, several dozen police and plainclothes police came across the street, searched practitioners' bags, dragged them and snatched away their banners, creating great interference. When the practitioners told the police about Falun Gong, the persecution in China and exposed the Chinese Embassy's evil deeds. Afterwards, some police officers expressed that they did not want to come, but the Chinese Embassy asked them to do so.
During the protest at Washington, two practitioners went inside the Embassy to deliver truth-clarifying materials. They told the official who met them the true situation of Falun Gong and the brutal persecution. The official said that she had read the materials, as two other practitioners had delivered some materials a few day before. She promised that she would send photos of the protest and practitioners' materials back to Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
One practitioner explained the fundamental difference between the Chinese Communist Regime and Thai government. While Thailand is a Buddhist country, the communist party is atheist. If Thai police took wrong actions due to the pressure and lies from the CCP, those wrong deeds will receive due retribution. That would not be good for Thailand. The official repeatedly stated that she understood the principle and would pass the materials to Thai government.
The delivered information package also included the latest news from Thailand: On December 14th, Thai police threatened that if practitioners went to the CCP embassy once again, they would arrest them. On the same day, in Pattaya, a city 150 km away from Bangkok, the police arrested three practitioners who handed out truth clarification materials. Tthe practitioners are Zhang Mengye, Luo Muluan and Jia Yachuan.
Zhang Mengye was former senior lecturer at Guangdong Provincial Electric Power School, and a fellow classmate of Hu Jintao at Tsinghua University. On January 14th, 2000, Zhang was arrested and sent to Guangzhou City No.1 Forced Labour Camp to serve over two years term. He was once handcuffed to a big tree for three consecutive days, he was put in agonising position where he could neither stand nor squat. On May 18th, 2002, Zhang was arrested again by personnel from 610 Office and sent to a brainwashing centre in Huangpu, Guangzhou City. On several occasions, he was tied up tightly and lifted upside down, his head was dunked into the toilet bowl to force dirty and stinky fluid into him. Zhang Mengye successfully left mainland China on November 11th, 2005.
Practitioners told the Thai embassy official: We request Thai police to release the three practitioners immediately; Thai officials should read the Nine Commentaries to see through the evil nature of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) so that they would take the right actions: Help practitioners to end the persecution rather than listening to its lies and yielding to its pressure.
During the protest, an Asian man who appears to be a Thai raised his thumb toward practitioners after he studied messages of practitioners' banners.
