Practitioners Demand an End to the Persecution During Australia-China Human Rights Dialog (Photos)

On July 24, 2006, the tenth Australia China human rights dialog was held behind
closed doors. Falun Gong practitioners held an activity in front of the Australian
Foreign Ministry. They also held a press conference to call on the Australia government
to take note of the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) atrocities of live organ
removal from Falun Gong practitioners, and ask for an end to the persecution of
Falun Gong.

Dafa Association Australia spokesperson John Deller pointed out that the Australia
China human rights dialog failed completely since it did not alleviate or end
China’s human rights violations. Mr. Deller gave an example of the death
of practitioner Ou Yangming, who is the brother of Australian citizen Ou Yangyu.
The CCP tortured Yangming to death in 2003 even though the Australia Foreign Ministry
brought his case to the attention of the CCP four times since 2001.

Jane Sun of the Coalition to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong (CIPFG)
Australia Branch said, “It has been more than four months since the first witness
disclosed the CCP’s live organ removal in March. The CCP’s atrocities
of organ harvesting from living practitioners are hard to imagine. The CCP has
persecuted Falun Gong for seven years. The purpose of CIPFG is to stop the killing.
In Australia, CIPFG members includes member of Parliament, provincial parliament,
non-governmental organizations, doctors, lawyers, religious people, reporters
and students. We demand that the CCP allow us to conduct an independent investigation
in China’s labor camps and prisons.”

Chairman Fan Yuan
of the Chinese Worker Party felt sorrow when seeing the reenactment of live organ
removal. As a Chinese democratic person in Australia, the Australian government
informs him of each dialog. He said, “Unfortunately, we haven’t seen any
effects from such dialogs for many years. The CCP has a bad record of human rights.
It should allow us to enter China to conduct independent and detailed investigations
on this issue.”

In the press conference, practitioner Ying Li also gave a speech
and called on Australian people and the government to pay attention to her brother,
Li Liang. She said, “I was shocked upon hearing of the CCP’s atrocities of
live organ removal. I and my family worry about my brother. He was arrested and
imprisoned many times since 1999. Since May this year, we have not received any
information about him. The CCP regime does not allow visiting. We don’t know
if he is still alive. We urge the Australian government to help us contact him.
We are worrying about his safety.”

Australian citizen Zhizhen Dai, who lost
her husband due to the CCP’s persecution, said that such dialog behind closed
doors is deceiving people, “Australia should hold open human rights dialogs and
help improve China’s human rights in reality.”
