(Video) China: April 25, 1999, 10,000 Falun Gong Practitioners Appealed in Beijing

Posted by Author on April 24, 2009

Behind the April 25 Incident


The Falun Gong incident of April 25, 1999 was not a sudden, accidental event.  Nor was it the kind of political demonstration involving the besieging of a government compound as claimed by Jiang Zemin.  From the written attacks begun during the July 1996 Guangming Daily incident in July, 1996 to the mobilization of police and using violence in Tianjin in April, 1999, the development and escalation of the persecution actually happened over a period of three or four years.

On April 25, 1999, more than 10,000 Falun Gong practitioners in China went to the Appeals Office of the State Council on Fuyou Street in Beijing to make an appeal in accordance with the law. They wished to ask the authorities to release the Falun Gong practitioners who had been arrested by the Tianjin public security officers.

After Premier Zhu Rongji, the official head of the State Council, personally came out and met with practitioners, the situation was handled and a resolution was reached that was acceptable to both the government and the practitioners.

However, after the “April 25th Incident,” Chinese president Jiang Zemin used two secret documents to accuse Falun Gong of two crimes that he wanted to charge them with – namely conspiring with foreign forces and being directed by senior insiders in the Communist Party.  In the absence of any corroborating evidence, Jiang decided on a policy of persecution.

To allow the reader to have a relatively comprehensive understanding of this important “April 25th Incident,” this document provides a synopsis of the events surrounding the incident in chronological order.  For the first time, among the facts presented are excerpts from interviews with those who participated in the April 25th events, including the dialogue between Premier Zhu Rongji and those who went to appeal.

Included are also crucial comments made by Jiang Zemin in two classified documents as he decided to crack down on Falun Gong based on information recently revealed by certain high level officials in the Communist Party.  This document is provided as reference for those who are interested in learning the truth of the “April 25th Incident.” …… (More details from THE FALUN DAFA INFORMATION CENTER)
