ABC’s reporting is a flagrant attack on me and the entire Falun Gong community. It has taken a completely unethical approach and contains numerous falsehoods and misrepresentations to support the narrative that Falun Gong is “abusive,” “cult-like,” strange, or dangerous. ABC did not contact me to fact-check statements attributed to Anna, recollected from when she was a child, more than 17 years ago. I can only conclude that ABC had no interest in the truth or fairness but was only looking for material which would confirm its bigotry against Falun Gong.
Stephen Crittenden interviewed Erping Zhang, a Mason Fellow at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University where he specialises in China’s censorship of the Internet.
On the evening of March 28, 2007, ABC-TV’s flagship current affairs program “Lateline” reported in prime time that the New Tang Dynasty Television’s (NTDTV) Chinese New Year Spectacular shows would be staged in Sydney on March 29. The program also exposed the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) Consulate-General in Sydney interfering with the show.
Falun Gong members are suing Mr Downer, saying certificates he issued banning their protests outside the Chinese Embassy were invalid.
David Kilgour was a member of the Canadian Parliament for 26 years until January this year. During that time he served in many roles including Secretary of State for Asia and the Pacific in the years 2002 and 2003. Prior to entering parliament Mr Kilgour practiced law, worked as Crown Prosecutor in Manitoba.
Falun Gong has been allowed to use large banners in its protests outside the Chinese embassy in Canberra, four years after they were banned by Foreign Affairs Minister Alexander Downer.
Earlier this month we reported on a Canadian investigation which said it had found more than 40,000 cases of organ transplants in China where the body parts came from executed political prisoners. Now a former Chinese policeman living in Australia has come forward with details of how the gruesome practice of organ harvesting is done.
The new human rights report alleges the increase in organ availability can be attributed to one fact: the execution of Falun Gong practitioners detained by the Chinese Government, who are then quite literally harvested for parts.
