With the help of Sydney practitioners, the art exhibition titled Truth, Compassion and Forbearance was on its way to Wollongong.
Month: July 2005
Former Chinese diplomat Chen Yonglin, who defected recently from the Chinese Consulate-general in Sydney, successively exposed inside stories about the Chinese Communist regime’s extensive spy network that has infiltrated democratic western countries including Australia and persecuted and harassed Falun Gong practitioners inside and outside of China.
The Women’s Rights and Protection Act in the People’s Republic of China’s Constitution states clearly that “Women need special protection during menstruation, pregnancy, childbirth, and lactation.” Nonetheless, reports of sexual assault, such as rape and forced abortion, frequently surface from Chinese labor camps.
Truth, Compassion and Forbearance is a 40-piece art show depicting the trauman experienced by devotees of the controversial Chinese meditation technique, now practised by 100 million people worldwide.
On July 20, 2005, Falun Gong practitioners in Sydney held a series of activities. The purpose of these activities was to expose to the public how communism regime over the past six years has carried out a brutal persecution against Falun Gong practitioners who cultivate Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.
Mr Chen, in his written statement, said the Chinese Communist Party’s persecution of the Falun Gong was a systematic and broad-based campaign.

One year ago, a woman in China’s Henan Province was sentenced to five years in prison because she refused to give up her faith in Falun Gong, and refused to curse the spiritual practice as ordered by the Chinese government. However, only recently was her story published on overseas websites in order to direct international attention to China’s human rights issues.
Wednesday 20 July 2005, marks six years since the persecution of Falun Gong began in China in July 1999. The death toll and number of cases of torture and forced labour has continued to increase every month, making the persecution of Falun Gong the most serious issue in China today.
Republican Henry Hyde, the Chairman of the US congressional sub-committee on global human rights, has invited Chinese defector, Mr. Chen Yonglin, a former Ist Secretary at the Sydney Chinese Consulate, to testify before the Committee, about Chinese spy networks and how the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) treats Falun Gong practitioners.
