Who Opposes Falun Gong’s Persecution in China?
Posted by Author on April 30, 2011
Nearly 12 years, tens of thousands of Falun Gong practitioners have been brutally persecuted, which the world’s community widely condemns. Meanwhile many top officials in the Chinese regime also openly oppose the persecution on Falun Gong. They feel that it is a huge disaster for the Chinese and call for an immediate end to the persecution as well as holding Jiang Zemin legally accountable.
According to incomplete data, 3,400 Falun Gong practitioners were persecuted to death since 1999. More than half of them were elderly and women. Tens of thousands of practitioners have been treated inhumanely, including over 40 forms of torture, drugs destructive to the central nervous system, alive organ harvesting, forced labor camps and brainwashing.
Former Peking University law professor, Yuan Hongbing pointed out that the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) is a terrorist group, persecuting Falun Gong practitioners more brutally than Nazi’s persecution of Jews.
Now is the 12th anniversary of 4/25 peaceful petition. Bao Tong, secretary of the former political secretary Zhao Ziyang, said that Falun Gong has spread to the whole world but is persecuted only in China. Persecution of Falun Gong will be recorded in history as injustice and an anti-humane act.
Bao Tong (Zhao Ziyang’s former secretary): “I think this is totally arbitrary. Jiang Zemin’s idea was passed through People’s Congress to deal with by an organization. I believe this is a huge mistake. If he thinks about it, he would also regret it. Why not do some good deeds instead of bad? Doesn’t the communist party already know that it is wrong to suppress Falun Gong?”
In addition, many top officials such as former NPC vice chairman Ding Shisun, former vice president of Xinhua, Li Pu, former Anhui Province Standing Committee member Wang Zhaojun and many others also openly oppose the persecution of Falun Gong.
While abroad, a lot of officials criticized Falun Gong’s persecution and openly quit CCP, including Zhang Kaichen from the propaganda department in Shenyang Jia Jia, secretary general of scientific experts, Chen Yonglin, Chinese Consulate General in Sydney, Li Fengshi from State Security Ministry, Hao Fengjun, 610 officer, Han Guangsheng, from Judicial Bureau of Shenyang, etc.
During the 9th and 10th National People’s Congress (NPC), the vice chairman of NPC, the vice chairman of the Central Committee, and the former president of Beijing University, all brought up Falun Gong issue, raising objections.
Li Pu, former vice president of Xinhua, said that Zhu Rongji had already resolved the problem, but Jiang Zemin alone was against Falun Gong. Falun Gong’s suppression not only violates the right of “freedom of religions” in the constitution, but also kills so many people. It is against the law and an immense crime.
Duguang, a former Central Party School professor, said that Falun Gong’s suppression is “a fool’s act”. It not only hurts many innocent people, but also the nation’s interests. It’s a heavy blow to the CCP and destructive to its ruling legitimacy.
Wang Zhaojun former Standing Committee member of Anhui Province pointed out that the persecution of Falun Gong stemmed from CCP’s totalitarianism. “Tyranny causes disasters, like Cultural Revolution, Tiananmen massacre and Falun Gong’s persecution. If it continues, who knows what else would come.”
In an open letter to Hu and Wen,Wang Zhaojun said: “China urgently needs to stop the persecution of Falun Gong immediately, to hold the perpetrator accountable and to make compensation to victims.”
Hong Kong Outpost magazine reported: “Jiang Zemin knows that his end is near, at least twice last year he told people around him that the suppression of Falun Gong is one of the two stupid things he did in his lifetime and made millions of enemies.”
Outside analysts pointed out that CCP would never bear someone else’s burden. If more top officials express objections to the persecution of Falun Gong, Jiang’s forces will lose ground. And that is what worries most Jiang Zemin.
