By a practitioner from Sydney
On October 6, 2006, Falun Gong practitioners from Sydney assembled in front of
City Hall to hold an activity to protest against Bo Xilai, the Chinese Minister
of Commerce, and one of the main culprits in the persecution of Falun Gong. They
also exposed the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) crime of harvesting organs
from living Falun Gong practitioners, and other CCP atrocities in the persecution.

Gong practitioners protest against Bo Xilai in front of City Hall
president of the Falun Dafa Association of New South Wales said that Pan Yu, a
Falun Gong practitioner from Liaoning Province, filed a lawsuit again Bo Xilai
for torture and genocide on March 31, 2006. Bo Xilai has been actively following
Jiang's regime to persecute Falun Gong practitioners ever since the persecution
started on July 20, 1999. When Bo was the mayor of Dalian City, deputy secretary
of the Liaoning Provincial Party committee and governor of Liaoning Province,
he discussed and arranged the persecution of Falun Gong at many meetings. When
he was governor of Liaoning Province from January 2001 to February 2004, Bo Xilai
actively planned and built large prison facilities, and invested 1 billion yuan
into reconstructing prisons within the province. Masanjia Forced Labor Camp, notorious
for its brutality and ruthlessness in the persecution of Falun Gong, was allotted
over 500 million yuan. Liaoning Province is one of the provinces where the persecution
of Falun Gong has been the most severe. More than 90 Falun Gong practitioners
had been tortured to death in Liaoning Province from 1999 to 2003. Pan Yu was
also beaten with electric batons.
The recently-disclosed secret concentration
camp in the Sujiatun District, Shenyang City, Liaoning Province held about 6,000
Falun Gong practitioners from the northeast area of China at one time. Witnesses
revealed that there is usually a large number of doctors there, and it also contains
a crematorium. It is believed that Falun Gong practitioners have had their organs
harvested there while still alive and their murdered bodies cremated immediately
to destroy the evidence. According to the evidence collected by a Canadian independent
investigation team, Bo Xilai has been directly involved in the organ harvesting.
The president of the Falun Dafa Association of New South Wales called upon all
the governments of the world to forbid murderers such as Bo Xilai from entering
The Falun Dafa Association president said that Australia is
a democratic country, not a paradise for the murderers. The association has already
written to the Attorney-General of Australia, asking him to forbid Bo Xilai entry
into Australia. Since Bo is already in Australia now, the association asked the
Attorney-General to issue an order for his arrest.
Many Falun Gong practitioners
also spoke to expose Bo Xilai’s crimes. Practitioners called upon all people
of conscience to help to stop the persecution and bring the murderers to justice.
Falun Gong practitioners formed a “great wall” with banners, which attracted
the attention of many people. A group of high school students were shocked by
the CCP’s brutality. They said that the whole world should condemn the crimes
and the Australian government should stop trade relationships with the CCP. One
of the students asked practitioners for a T-shirt, which exposes the truth of
the persecution. He said that he wanted more people to know about the persecution.
Many people signed their names to support Falun Gong.
March 31, 2006, Falun Gong practitioner Pan Yu filed a lawsuit against Chinese
Commerce Minister Bo Xilai, accusing him of crimes of torture and genocide. The
Supreme Court in New South Wales officially accepted his submission according
to International law and Australian law, and held the hearings on April 10 and
August 7, 2006. The next hearing will be on October 30.
Bo has been sued by
Falun Gong practitioners for murder, torture, and genocide, in the USA, England,
Germany, Ireland, New Zealand, Russia, Australia, Korea, Spain and Sweden.
