People from All Walks Call for Help to Assist Reunion of Falun Gong Practitioners’ Family Members (Photos)

June 27, 2006, Falun Gong practitioners held a press conference in front of the
Prime Minister’s Office building. Several practitioners who have family members
imprisoned in China for practicing Falun Gong gave speeches and submitted open
letters. They called on Australian Prime Minister John Howard to put forward the
Falun Gong human rights issue and help rescue those family members being illegally
imprisoned for practicing Falun Gong during his visit to China this week.

the departure of the Prime Minister to China, Falun Gong practitioners held a
rally last week and handed over tens of thousands of signatures from all across
Australia to the Prime Minster and members of Parliament. They called on the Prime
Minister and Parliament to pay attention to the Chinese Communist Party's
(CCP) removal of organs from living Falun Gong practitioners and asked them to
support the Coalition to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong's (CIPFG)
independent investigation into the organ harvesting.

Australia Press, SBS TV,
New Tang Dynasty TV, and The Epoch Times covered the event on-site.

Acupuncture doctor Doris: my mother is detained and I wish to collect 20 million
signatures to urge the Prime Minister to put forward the Falun Gong issue


Chinese acupuncture doctor Doris from Manly calls on help to rescue her mother

Chinese acupuncture doctor Doris, a resident of
Manly, said in the press conference that she submitted more than 200 signatures
to the Prime Minister’s office last week. She brought 336 more signatures
this week to Prime Minister Howard. She hopes that the Prime Minster will put
forward the Falun Gong issue and help rescue her mother during his visit to China.
Doris’ mother, Zeng Aihua, a Hong Kong resident, was taken away on May 23,
2006 from her home in Shanghai. Agents from the Pudong Police Substation illegally
her and ransacked her house. Her family members in Australia and
Hong Kong were not informed of the arrest. Ms. Zeng is still detained in Pudong
Detention Center.

Doris said
in an interview, “When I heard the news that my mother was illegally detained.
I was anxious and did not know how to rescue her. Especially in light of the recently
disclosed news about the CCP’s removal of organs from living Falun Gong practitioners,
it makes me more worried about her safety. To rescue her, I have run to many places
to seek help, including the Foreign Affairs Ministry, the Prime Minister’s
office, the media, local Members of Parliament, the city government, and non-governmental
organizations. With the assistance of friends, I designed a signature collection
form to call on the Prime Minister to put forward the Falun Gong issue during
his visit to China and to help rescue my mother. Manly Daily carried a
report on my rescue efforts.”

Doris said that her mother raised her alone since
she was 12 years old. Her greatest wish is to give her mother a happy life. This
year, she invited her mother and step-father to visit Australia. They had agreed
to come, but her mother was suddenly detained. Doris was shocked after hearing
the news.

Doris said, “Whatever the result is, my mother is comparatively lucky
because she has a daughter in a democratic country to seek help for her. I often
think of the daughters of those Falun Gong practitioners who are illegally detained
for practicing Falun Gong in China. I feel my heart is closer to them. Thus, I
have decided to continue collecting signatures for my mother and other Falun Gong
practitioners until the end of the persecution.” She said when she sought help,
she understood more about her mother’s righteous actions in exposing the
facts of the persecution.

In an open letter to the Prime Minister, Doris stated,
“I have come to realize more and more that I am just one representative of the
family members of those Falun Gong practitioners who cannot seek justice in China.
When I talk about the genocide occurring in China to kind-hearted Australian people,
I have cried many times. I felt that their hearts were moved. I hope that when
I collect 20 million signatures, the Australian Government cannot evade raising
the Falun Gong issue with China.”

Wang Chunying: Release my son and all
Falun Gong practitioners being imprisoned


Ms. Wang Chunying, 66 years old, mother of Li Liang

Ms. Wang Chunying, 66 years old, came to Australia in April this year. She called
for the rescue of her son, Li Liang, who has been unlawfully imprisoned for seven
years. There is no information about his current plight. Ms. Wang said, “Since
July 20, 1999 [when the persecution began], the police and city 610
often harassed my family. My three children were detained and imprisoned
in labor camps unlawfully. I was detained for one month. Even today, my son Li
Liang is still imprisoned in Shuangkou Labor Camp, Tianjin. He was imprisoned
in different labor camps for seven years. After May of this year, we family members
have not been allowed to visit him. We don’t know his current plight. I have
called many times and there was nobody to answer the phone. I sent letters and
have not received a response. Based on recent news, there were at least 36 concentration
camps in China. The CCP removes the organs from living Falun Gong practitioners
to make huge profits [in the organ transplant business]. Every day and
every moment, my son and other Falun Gong imprisoned practitioners are facing
life-threatening danger. I call on Prime Minister Howard to help stop the CCP’s
evil killing and rescue my son and the many other Falun Gong practitioners being
persecuted in China.”

Ms. Wang said during an interview that the CCP’s
persecution of Falun Gong is very evil. She worried more about her son’s
safety after hearing about the CCP’s removal of organs from Falun Gong practitioners.
She wished to seek help from the Australian Prime Minister and hopes the government
can help rescue Li Liang as soon as possible.

Father Peter Caruana: The
CCP ignores human rights and does not care about life

Father Peter Caruana
from Holy Family Church sent a letter to Prime Minster Howard about Falun Gong
practitioners, especially Doris’ mother, Li Liang and others who have family
members in Australia before his visit to China. He called on the Prime Minister
to urge the CCP leaders to stop the persecution of Falun Gong and immediately
release the practitioners who have family members in Australia.

Father Peter
Caruana believes that the CCP ignores human rights and does not care about life.
He pointed out, “God tells us to have a caring heart, especially when others need
help. Now these innocent Chinese people are unlawfully imprisoned, tortured or
used as living organ donors for profit. As a man, a Christian, and an Australian
citizen, I must stand up to speak from my heart.”

After learning about the
facts of the persecution, especially the CCP’s organ removal from living
Falun Gong practitioners for profit, Father Peter Caruana was shocked. He decided
to join the CIPFG and help practitioner to hold truth-clarification
seminars in his community. He also invited several other priests to join the CIPFG
to help investigate the facts.
