China’s Diplomatic Scandal: Consul General Organizes Violent Attacks in New York

Posted by Author on May 29, 2008


The Falun Dafa Information Center, 5/23/2008-

( Note: The Falun Dafa Information Center has obtained a recorded phone conversation with New York City’s Chinese Consul General, Mr. Peng Keyu, in which he confirms his role in organizing a mob of several-hundred Chinese immigrants to assail Falun Gong practitioners in Flushing, New York, over the past four days.

The recording was made on Thursday May 22 by an undercover investigator and lasts for 5 minutes and 7 seconds. During the conversation, Peng appears to boast of his involvement, saying “Oh indeed, we have done it.”

To listen to the recorded conversation with Consul General Peng (in Chinese), click the ‘Play’ button below or here. )

English translation of the transcript here:

Investigator: Is this consulate general Mr. Peng Keyu?

Peng: Who is this?

Investigator: This is XYZ (real name is undisclosed for the safety of the investigator.)

Peng: How are you?

Investigator: This time you have really made a huge scene in fighting Falun Gong in Flushing!

Peng: Hey, hey, hey…That’s right!

Investigator: I would like to know how you organized them.

Peng: They (Falun Gong) protested against the Chinese Communist Party! Well, I went there the day before yesterday, and also three days ago, because we have to be very careful with this kind of thing! Otherwise, people will say the Chinese consulate is behind it, agitating people. Some of our men were among the crowd and they reported to me afterwards. I am quite familiar with this! But we encouraged them secretly! Because I showed up at the scene, everyone was very excited. For the first time, the Falun Gong practitioners came, right? A few hundred people went up and surrounded them. When we had them surrounded, both sides started to argue. Finally the police persuaded Falun Gong [practitioners] to leave. The second day was the same. It was even fiercer yesterday and the day before yesterday. This has been going on for four to five days.

Investigator: How did you find so many people all of sudden? Have you had experience in this area?

Peng: I wouldn’t call it experience. It’s because of the overseas Chinese community. Let me put it this way. It’s because of the work focused on the overseas Chinese community. Since the incidents in Tibet and the Olympic torch relay, there is such a kind of passion… Of course, it also has to do with this earthquake. I have always gone to them and thanked them in person. On Monday when I went there (Flushing), I also held two meetings. I ran other things behind the scene. I went to their Association (Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association) in person to thank them…because Falun Gong was there nearby.

Investigator: Oh.

Peng: Paying visits like this would sometimes create something like an encouraging effect.

Investigator: Did the consulate do any ideological work on the Chinese community?

Peng: What do you mean?

Investigator: In other words, giving them a hint or some guidance.

Peng: (Laughing) Oh! Indeed, we have done it! To tell you frankly, we have done it! It’s something we cannot openly tell people outside, we have done it. Sometimes we give them hints, in and out. We say something to Chinese community leaders. Yes, I have done it very often, especially this time! I often say something that you describe as hints. Yes, I have done it! I do it very frequently! Including this time when I went out to the scene! I have done that! I have even agitated them! I said, “Write some reports!” I say things like this. Today I told the people from the CCTV, “You guys should take some footage of these phenomena.” It is great indeed. I can only tell you the facts secretly. Well…

Investigator: It appears you have done solid work on the Chinese community leaders.

Peng: I would say I have kept a very good relationship with them. Given their passion, I must go in person. Showing up in person or not makes a lot of difference in terms of effect, so I pay them personal visits frequently. This way those overseas Chinese people would feel closer to me at heart. For example, in some occasions, they would come over after they have fought with Falun Gong [practitioners] and I would shake hands with them one by one and thank them. I say nice, encouraging words to them. This is what I must do. To tell you the truth, I must do it when the thing has been done to this point, yet I must not do things like that right in front of Falun Gong. I usually park my car far from the scene because I must avoid being seen by them [Falun Gong practitioners]. I must be really careful in this regard; otherwise, people will accuse me of this or that. This will give them [Falun Gong practitioners] leverage. That will not be good. You know, I have been very careful. When they came down here and told me that they had driven them out, I shook hands with them. I said thank you and made a few encouraging remarks. In addition, I held a press conference and condemned Falun Gong. It was yesterday when I held a press conference.

Investigator: Did you have the press conference in the name the Chinese consulate general in New York?

Peng: The consulate general. I condemned Falun Gong. It is on the newspaper today. I read the news today. The China Press (Qiao Bao) made a very detailed report.

Beijing Evicted Households Condemn China Communist Regime’s Groundless Suppression (MP3)

Posted by Author on February 14, 2008

A number of rural farmers from Da-Tun and Wali Village in Chaoyang District, Beijing, told reporters that properties of many farmers in suburban Beijing had been forcibly levied and dismantled by the Chinese Government. However, the authorities failed to make reasonable compensation and resettlement. Although they have repeatedly appealed to authorities, they have been groundlessly suppressed.

When asked how they spent the New Year, Li Yu-Kui, a rural resident from Wali Village of Chaoyang District, expressed sorrowfully that his inherited estate was arbitrarily brought down for nearly five years and the problem still remains undissolved. Without income and depending on aid from relatives and friends, they have no home to return to, not to mention the New Year. He said “I have two commercial shops with business licences that paid the state tax in time. Without assessment, or court verdict or any kind of compensation, my assets were seized. To report this grievance and wrongs to the Party’s Central Committee, and the State Council, I had been detained numerous times and was twice sent to forced labour camps.”

A former rural resident of Da-Tun Village, Lu Qing-Cheng revealed that after his property was forcibly dismantled in 2001, he went to appeal to the Central Government (located in Zhong-Nan-Hai) with another six evicted households. Consequently, over twenty of us were seized and detained for eight days, including a six-year old. He stated that it is like this in China, they would simply ignore you if you appeal, and if you sue them, the court would not accept your file. They allotted me the worst unit with no sunshine and the walls were tilted. I turned it down. They then offered me a relatively decent place. But the building with no drawings was not even registered by the government, and it can’t be found over the Internet. It was privately built without state approval, called “the bean curb dregs”.

Another rural resident of Wali Village, Li Xinyuan indicated that his property was demolished with a compensation of only 50,000 yuan offered. He said: “The Government offered me 50,000 yuan, and that is not sufficient to cover our overhead. At the time, I had two school-aged children, and the prices are so high. What is there for me to buy a house?”

According to reports, many farmers from Wali Village and Da-Tun Village of Chaoyang District have been experiencing a troubled life since the forced evictions that caused them to lose sources of livelihood, and they are unable to buy new houses.

The above new is brought to you by Lu Fang, Chen Jie-Cai, and hosted by Chris Thomas for Breaking News on the SOH Radio Network.

Audio report: Dismissed Military Cadre sets up a Quit CCP Service Centre in China

Posted by Author on November 4, 2007


by Li Si Si, Chen Yen,  reported by Wilma Reynolds and Karen Chang for Breaking News on the SOH Radio Network, November 4th, 2007-

(click to play)

Recently, Mr. Chen, a member of the Dismissed Veteran Military Cadre who has quit the Chinese Communist Party told SOH reporters that the Dismissed Veteran Military Cadre’s dream of improved living conditions was completely shattered after the seventeenth CCP National Congress. He realized that he wasted a significant part of his life serving the CCP and was just being used by the regime. He has therefore formed the first Dismissed Veteran Military Cadre Quit the CCP Service Centre so that the members can quit the CCP and bring down the regime.

Mr. Chen believes the corruption of the CCP stems from the fact that the officials are all looking for money and ignoring the situation of the Cadres. A large number of officials embezzle money that was meant for the public, including funds to improve the lives of the members of the Cadres. There is also a lack of welfare system for the Cadres and all of these factors have led to a nationwide protest.

[recording] “I will immediately announce the establishment of a Dismissed Veteran Military Cadre Quit the CCP Service Centre and to call upon the Cadres to quit the evil CCP. They manipulate power and the corrupt officials use their so-called “power” to do whatever they please. The corruption has gone too far and is now a very widespread problem of the CCP.”

Mr. Chen points out that the violation of human rights against cadres who appeal through legal means is becoming more prominent. The regime, in the attempt to cover up their corruption, has adopted eavesdropping, spying and surveillance to monitor the movements of the Cadre members.

[recording] “The treatment by local governments towards the people’s appeal is to crackdown on them. When the people have nowhere else to go they turn to the appeal process. But in the face of these appeals the government still block, attack and even imprison and sentence the people. What do these problems demonstrate? It’s still a human rights problem. The rights of the people are not being protected.”

While their numerous appeals come to no effect, many in the Cadres are becoming sick and cannot afford medical treatment. They have even been threatened with the withdrawal of welfare if they continue to appeal. Mr. Chen sighs and comments that with the massive wealth gap, the Chinese people can now only pray to heaven to not let them get sick.

[recording] “The living condition of the people is very poor, and even with the reform of the health system, the people cannot afford to visit the hospital. But at the same time the officials are become wealthy. And there are obvious corruption related to this. While group appeals have increased, those with money and power also use the connections they have to achieve whatever they wish. It’s the manipulation of power by the powerful and so I say it’s corrupt. The wealth gap is becoming bigger and bigger.”

The dismissed veteran military cadres around the country have long suffered from the delayed payment of salary and benefits and are enduring extreme hardship. Since 1995 they have increased their appeals to the government in order to raise awareness of their plight and to fight for their rights.

Song for China Olympics: Feels Like 1936 Again

Recommended by friend Tian Xin-

Feels Like 1936 Again

Lyricist/Composer: Randall Effner
Singers: Randall and Sara Effner
Accompaniment: Guitar/Randall Effner;Harmonica/Henry Clay

(click to play)

Lyric:

The Olympic Spirit hangs its head in shame
When police states are allowed to host the games
Like Germany when Hitler reigned supreme
Seeking glory for his murderous regime

Now China wants to shine upon that stage
East and West are eager to engage
But human rights the CCP disdains
Feels like 1936 again.

Can you hold an international track meet
When you got a labor camp right down the street?
Can you sponsor the Olympics in 08
When you still imprison people for their faith?

The CCP will change what can be seen
They’ll even paint the grass and mountains green
But their evil nature always will remain
Feels like 1936 again.

They torture people seven days a week
The shock batons are sizzling as we speak
They harvest organs from the Falun Gong
Then cremate them to hide what’s going on.

Put me on your blacklist I don’t care
I hope the people boycott this affair
The stench of genocide is in the wind
Feels like 1936 again.

Reports about the slaughter of the Jews
Quite often didn’t even make the news
The world still seems to have a tendency
To ignore big crimes against humanity

When virtue comes in second place to trade
Freedom, hope and justice start to fade
The Olympic flame is flickering and dim
Feels like 1936 again

Expert: China Requiring Permission For Tibetan Lamas Reincarnation “absurd”

Posted by Author on August 29, 2007


VOA News, 29 August 2007-

As of September 1, China is tightening control over Tibetan Buddhism with a new law requiring government permission for the reincarnation of lamas. Tibetan activists say this is another attempt by communist Chinese leaders to undermine Tibetan culture and even absurdly to control the religious afterlife. VOA’s Heda Bayron has more on the story from our Asia News Center in Hong Kong.

(click to play:) 

The new law bans Tibetan lamas, or monks, from reincarnating without Chinese government approval.

China, which has ruled Tibet for more than half a century, says anyone outside China cannot influence the reincarnation process and only monasteries in China can apply for permission.

Experts and activists say the law is clearly aimed at excluding the exiled Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, from selecting reincarnated lamas or Living Buddhas – which form the core of Tibetan Buddhism’s leadership.

And, they say, the law effectively paves the way for China to interfere in the future reincarnation of the 72 year-old Dalai Lama, who China regards as a “splittist”.

John Powers, an expert on Tibetan Buddhism at Australia National University, says the law is “absurd” but at the same time, “chilling”.

“They’re [Chinese government] trying to exercise as much control as they possibly can over religious practices and over peoples’ lives,” he said. “It’s not even just exercising control of the present life, they even trying to control future life and death. This sort of thing would only occur in a totalitarian government.”

Communist China exercises strict control over all religion. For instance, millions of Chinese Catholics are allowed to worship only in the government-sanctioned Patriotic Church, which functions outside of the Vatican. The Patriotic Church appoints bishops in China without approval from the Pope.

Human rights organizations have long criticized China for religious repression and human rights abuses in Tibet.

In 1995, the Dalai Lama’s chosen reincarnation of the Panchen Lama – the second holiest figure in Tibetan Buddhism – was rejected by Beijing. Instead, China appointed its own Panchen Lama and detained the Dalai Lama’s choice. But few Tibetans consider the Chinese Panchen Lama as a legitimate leader.

Lamas are often reborn to continue their good work. There are often many candidates of a lama’s reincarnation, but only one will be recognized.

The Dalai Lama has said he will be reincarnated outside Tibet – raising the possibility of two Dalai Lamas in the future – a Chinese appointed one in Tibet and another in exile.

But Tenzin Norgay, a spokesman for the Tibetan Center for Human Rights and Democracy in Dharamsala India – home of the Tibetan exile government, says Tibetans are not likely to accept a Chinese-appointed Dalai Lama.

“How could an atheist party be able to recognize the next Dalai Lama? You look into the sentiments of the Tibetan people, the Beijing appointed Panchen Lama does not have any respect,” said Norgay. “So similarly even of this regulation comes into effect, if they choose a Dalai Lama of their own, it’s not going to be of any use. Ultimately it should come from the respect being shown by the Tibetan people.”

China says the new regulation aims to preserve social harmony – a reason Beijing often uses in situations involving ethnic, economic or political conflict. Beijing has been showering the region with economic projects to end poverty and isolation – including the high tech Beijing to Tibet railway, which opened last year.

But rights groups say Tibetans are feeling that their culture will be diluted because of this government-sponsored influx of Han Chinese into the region. This law is seen as even more threatening to the most fundamental aspect of Tibetan life – the spiritual realm.

More than 130,000 Tibetans live in exile. Many monks and nuns flee Tibet every year often via a treacherous hike in the Himalayas.

The Dalai Lama, who fled Tibet in 1959, has given up demands for independence for Tibet but wants more autonomy for the region. Representatives of the Dalai Lama have held a series of informal talks with the Chinese government but no progress has been achieved on the issue.

Theme Song and Logo of ‘Human Rights Torch Relay’ Unveiled

Posted by Author on August 10, 2007


Epoch Times Staff, Aug 06, 2007-logo of Human Rights Torch Relay

The Coalition to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong (CIPFG)— consisting of more than 300 public officials, lawyers, doctors, religious leaders, and human rights advocates— unveiled the logo and theme song for its “Human Rights Torch Relay.” The Coalition plans to ignite a human rights torch in Athens, Greece, on August 9, 2007.

(photo: Global Human Rights Torch Relay symbol- CIPFG)

Since CIPFG published an ad for a logo design and a theme song several weeks ago, it has received hundreds of responses, including some from mainland China.

The logo’s main component is a torch with a dove in front of it, representing freedom and a bright future. The background is a map of China outlined in barbed wire. The logo illustrates that China is a prison, and the torch of human rights will bring freedom and a bright future to the Chinese people.

The theme song is also refreshing and powerful. The composer is from Europe. The theme song is currently being recorded in multiple languages including English, German, French, Italian, and Japanese.

Listen to the theme song in Chinese by click on play button below:

The lyrics are as follows:

Human Rights Torch

The sacred flame of the Olympics is lit from Mt Olympia
The Olympic flag, a wreath of olive branches
Cooperation, teamwork, brotherhood and friendship
Honor, glory and dedication
Peace and justice
Freedom and Human rights
The heavens and earth, mountains and seas
The spirit soars and the heart calls
May the consecrated Olympic flag
Be forever raised on high

Beijing Olympics Year 2008
The scent of blood hangs in the air
80 million ghosts paved to prosperity
The blood and tears of hundreds of millions spawned
extravagant palaces

Stop the persecution
Give back our rights
Shackles cannot replace the Olympic wreath
Let the human rights torch
Kindle the whole world
Blood cannot taint the Olympics’ purity and sacredness

Wash clean the blood drenched stains and filth
May the Human Rights Torch of freedom, peace and justice
light up the world forever.

Audio: Massive Deportation Happening in Hong Kong Airport- heavy police, force used

Posted by Author on June 30, 2007


Sound of Hope International Radio Network, Jun 30, 2007-

Here’s an radio report from Sound of Hope International Radio Network about the massive deportation ongoing, which is the larggest deportation case happened in Hong Kong history, with a live interview with a lady Ichun Ko, a Taiwan Falun Gong practitioner who’s currently detained in Hong Kong Airport.

Program Length: 13′ (click on Play button to listen)

The following is the transcript excerpt of the radio report – Australian based Sound of Hope (SOH) reporter Ben Smith interviewing Ms Ichun Ko, a Falun Gong practitioner from Taiwan who is currently detained along with hundreds of others in Hong Kong airport.

Ms Ichun Ko Arrived in Hong Kong at 11pm Friday June 29 on China Airlines flight CI 619. They were situated in the duty free area at the time of the interview. The Interview was done via mobile phone at 8.30pm June 30.

SOH reporter: Tell us what the situation is over in Hong Kong now, please give us the details from when you first arrived until now.

Ichun Ko: Yesterday (Friday June 29) around 500 Falun Gong practitioners entered Hong Kong airport, but from what we understand is that around 250 have been detained at the airport.

There are actually more Falun Gong practitioners who have entered Hong Kong today(Saturday June 30). As far as we know, some practitioners who entered immigration yesterday have had their passports taken and subsequently detained. There are a number of different location where the Falun Gong practitioners are detained. Some practitioners are held in a small room, others are in the departure lounge.

After seeing other practitioners with their passports taken and detained, the Falun Gong practitioners further back of the line have since stopped moving forward to hand in their passports. Currently the situation can be described as very tense.

SOH Reporter: Have you witnessed any violence against the people who have been detained?

Ichun Ko: So far we have heard that there are no more Falun Gong practitioners handing forward their passports and that there are a number of practitioners being detained in different locations.

There’s a new group of Falun Gong practitioners who have not been processed at immigration and were just in the flight transfer area. From there they could see a small room where some Falun Gong practitioners were detained. They saw what happened to those detained practitioners and which can be described as brutal. The Falun Gong practitioners were wrapped up in blankets which were secured with some black material. The bound practitioners were then dragged out on the floor.

The Falun Gong practitioners detained in the rooms were treated like this in groups and they were taken or dragged out of the room at different intervals within a few hours.

From what we can see is that there is a small room holding Falun Gong practitioners. We cannot see the practitioners detained elsewhere and do not know what their current situation is.

Currently there’s around 50 Falun Gong practitioners who have witnessed their fellow practitioners being detained and sent back so have held on to their own passports. They are currently staying in the flight transfer room doing the Falun Gong exercises, meditating or reading.

This is what we have been seeing.

In the whole process, it appears that the Hong Kong authorities have mobilised a heavy police, security and staff force to keep watch on the practitioners.

As mentioned earlier. The room where the Falun Gong practitioners have been kept is under heavy police watch. The practitioners who have not been processed by immigration and have held on to their passports have also been surrounded by police. Consequently, neither group can get in contact with the other. On top of that there’s also a green screen to separate the Falun Gong practitioners so that other tourists cannot see what is happening to them.

It can be said that there has been a heavy movement of police and security personnel, yet the authorities seem to want to keep what is really happening from being seen by others. This is the current situation as we can see.

SOH Reporter: What reason are the authorities giving for not letting you into Hong Kong?

Ichun Ko: Initially, the Hong Kong authorities gave no reasons as to why the practitioners have been detained. Afterwards they have simply stated that the reason is the practitioners are not welcome.

SOH Reporter
: How many Falun Gong practitioners are with you now?

Ichun Ko: I can see about 50 or 60 Falun Gong practitioners. I know there’s a lot more than that but I cannot see them. I’m not sure the exact number of Falun Gong practitioners here.

SOH Reporter: What about food and bathroom facilites, has access been given for these?

Ichun Ko: The situation today is that the Falun Gong practitioners who have been surrounded by police have had no access to food or toilets. They were surrounded for quite a few hours. So the situation is that the surrounded practitioners do not have access to food or toilets.

SOH Reporter: So the police are surrounding a group of Falun Gong practitioners?

Ichun Ko: Yes the other group is also surrounded insofar as that they are separated from the other Falun Gong practitioners.

Phone Transcript: Wife of Imprisoned Lawyer beaten by police

Posted by Author on November 26, 2006


Epoch Times, Nov 25, 2006-

Transcript of a phone conversation between Hu Jia and Geng He

Geng: Hu Jia, what can I do…they beat me up, they cursed me; they beat me [so badly that] my mouth and gums are bleeding; the fingernail on my little finger is torn off, my clothes are all ripped into pieces. They beat me [crying bitterly]—two men beat me.

Hu: Sister, when did they beat you?

Geng: A while ago. After that I took a taxi home. I think it was half an hour ago.

Hu: So they beat you up half an hour ago? Those people from the [department of] State Safety?

Geng: Yes [they are from] State Safety; they have been following me.

Hu: Why did they beat you?

Geng: They said “who is following me?” I said well, I am going back; they were also going back. I said “Aren’t you following me?” They swore at me, and I swore back. They then started to beat me. Two policemen wearing leather jackets, about 1.8 meters tall.

Hu: The policemen were that big?

Geng: Yes; plus a female policewoman.

Hu: Sister, are these the same people who beat up Attorney Gao before? Or are they different people?

Geng: Their faces are very familiar.

Hu: I understand, sister-in-law. Slow down a bit and [tell me] where are you injured; tell me more details.

Geng: My mouth is full of blood, and teeth are loosened; the fingernail of the small finger on my right hand is completely torn apart. I was wearing leather clothing, and it has been ripped into pieces. When I came out of the taxi, I was too embarrassed to wear it, so I took it off and brought it home with me.

Hu: Where did they beat you?

Geng: They beat me on Jinsong Road, around Lidu Hotel on the bus route 408.

Hu: What were you doing there?

Geng: I went to a clothing market there to buy some clothing.

Hu: Sister, let me ask more details. They followed you and you asked them not to follow too closely, that was when you argued with them. Is that the case?

Geng: I asked them “Don’t follow me so closely.” One person said, “Who is following you? I am making a phone call. Who is following you?” I said, well, then I will turn back; he turned back too; I walked forward, he walked forward. I said, “Aren’t you following me?” He cursed me, “You bastard, you are irritating me.” I cursed back, and he started to beat me. I am wearing a high-heel today, and I do not have any strength. I am having a fever…He beat me on my mouth, and my whole mouth is bleeding.

Hu: I see. How may people did they have?

Geng: They have one woman, in her twenties……there was a car by them…that car……I do not remember its license plate; [it] seems to have 596 on the plate. One man came out of the car. He pretended to want to calm the fight, but he was totally one-sided. He held me up, and the other one beat me very hard.

Hu: I see. The two who beat you—are they both male?

Geng: Yes, the woman did not lift a finger.

Hu: I understand. This is so shameless. Was that about half an hour ago?

Geng: Yes, half an hour ago. (… read more)
