Exposing Jiang Regime’s State Sponsored Terror that Destroys Human Consicence at the UN Commission on Human Rights (Photos)

During the 60th Human Rights Conference at the UN, Falun Gong and the NGO “International Education Development” held a forum together, the theme of which was “Chinese State Terrorism: The Persecution of Falun Gong.”

When speaking of terrorism, people often think of radical people who operate in other countries
using terrorist means such as assassination, explosions and so on to cause
hundreds of thousands civilian casualties and deaths, in order to force the
other side to surrender. People often ignore another type of terrorism, which is

horrors caused to human beings by state terrorism is many times greater than
that caused by non-state terrorism.
