  • Lawyer's Speech during a Press Conference in Sweden regarding Criminal Charges Against Jiang Zemin

    "I used to say that to be able to understand the desperation of the Chinese regime, you have to realise that the people they perceive as a deadly threat to the regime are the ones that have no ambitions other than to live according to their conscience and meditate in the parks. When you realise that these peaceful people, who want nothing but to live according to their conviction, are perceived as a threat, then you will also understand the inconceivable desperation and cruelty of the Chinese regime...Jiang Zemin, who has instructed this loathsome persecution, can and will accordingly be punished, either in China or in Sweden."
  • Letter from a Swiss Labour Union Representative to the Chinese Embassy Concerning the Refusal of a Passport Extension

    "We understand from media releases that practitioners of Falun Gong have been persecuted and are detained for years in China’s prisons. They are accused of violating PRC’s security. Such accusations are far-fetched and unbelievable, given all information available to us. We therefore assume that the denial of a valid passport or such extension is another form of persecution and repression of Falun Gong. We take the opportunity to inform you that the PRC is violating international laws with such actions."

I know Wang Yong well, and I can honestly tell you that he is definitely not against the Chinese government. What he is doing is just appealing to the Chinese government to stop the persecution of Falun Gong and for bringing the responsible criminals within the Chinese government to justice.

  • Letter to the Editor: My Beloved Motherland, When Can We Have True Freedom?

    I called my classmate in China just now, and was told that one of my best friends was imprisoned and eventually tortured to death simply because of practicing Falun Gong. I am not a Falun Gong practitioner, and don't have much knowledge of Falun Gong. But I do know my best friend very well, he was a truly righteous and honest person. I really cannot understand and rationalise why China would even regard having a belief as illegal. I feel really very sorry about it. My beloved motherland, when can we have true freedom?

  • Jiang Uses the Label of "Politically Motivated" as a Weapon In His Anti-Falun Gong Campaign

    Jiang's group desperately needs people to confuse the notions of right and wrong, and they have reinforced such twisted confusion with brainwashing so that they can deceive themselves as well as others and poison the minds of the people. Their purpose is to use their power to manipulate the law for their own self-interests, and to crack down on tens of millions of kind-hearted people in mainstream society. It is Jiang's group who are truly ignoring the well-being of the people and they are the ones who are truly jeopardising social stability.
