Australian leaders demand the end of 22 years of Falun Gong persecution


There are “moral imperatives” in the world that evoke a holistic system that persecutes people’s beliefs. In particular, the world needs to call for Falun Gong by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and persecution of other religious groups and opponents.

This is what David Adler, president of the Australian Jewish Association (AJA), told The Epoch Times on July 20, 1999 in a statement commemorating the 22nd anniversary of the start of the CCP, which urged Falun Gong in China. ..

Adler likened the 22-year persecution of Falun Gong by the Chinese communist regime to the “shameful” persecution of Jews by the Nazi regime.

“Jews understand what it is like to be persecuted by a large holistic regime,” Adler said.

“The main lesson was supposed to be’never again’,” he added. “We have to speak up. We have to do what we can to stop it.”

Adler is one of many Australian leaders calling on Beijing to end the persecution of Falun Gong.

Tasmanian liberal senator Eric Abetz told The Epoch Times that Falun Gong practitioners have faced constant persecution for 22 years, but “stand firmly and fight for freedom.”

“We, who are blessed to exercise our freedom, must not be silent,” Abets said. “We take the easy option of moral bankruptcy and don’t close our eyes.”

Falun Gong, also known as Falun Dafa, was first introduced to the public in China in 1992 and became popular due to slow-moving movements and moral teachings centered on the principles of truth, compassion and tolerance.

Official estimates indicate that by the end of the decade, this practice had about 70 to 100 million supporters.

Considering this popularity as a threat, the Chinese Communist Party launched a national campaign on July 20, 1999 to eradicate practices and supporters.

Since then, countless practitioners have suffered from mental and physical torture, financial pressure, forced labor, imprisonment, and forced organ removal.

Survivors of the abuse were told that they were exposed to toxic lethal injections, hard labor, electric shocks to private areas, and the threat of forced abortion of pregnancy.

Concetta Fierravantiwells, New South Wales Liberal Senator, said Australians continue to put pressure on CCPs as more people around the world “get to understand the skull of the administration.” Said it would be more and more important.

Such pressures included Australia’s call for an independent investigation into the origin of COVID-19, a disease caused by the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus. These calls bring an attempt to economically force Australia to meet Beijing’s demands by imposing suspensions and tariffs on many Australian products such as coal, beef, barley, red shrimp, lumber, lamb and cotton. I did.

“Australian people no longer tolerate regular business with Beijing,” she said.

“More and more Australians are more willing to understand the administration’s illegal activities, especially human rights abuses. We are strong in blaming Beijing and need to take decisive action,” said Fiera Vantiwells. Said.

Sophie York, a lawyer, writer and expert in international humanitarian law, said the forced organ removal faced by Falun Gong practitioners in China was a “murder crime” and the perpetrators should be brought to justice in international court. It was. ..

As a free nation, Victorian Liberal Party lawmaker Bernie Finn said Australia and Australians are “obliged” to support Chinese people suffering under a murderous and barbaric regime.

“We have to confront with those who want freedom,” he told the Epoch Times.

Lyle Sheldon, director of the Christian lobby in Australia, said millions of Christians and Falun Gong practitioners have a common goal of raising awareness of the persecution they will endure under the Chinese Communist Party.

David Flint, an emeritus professor and former president of the Australian Press Council, said Farn Gong’s persecution “contrary to human law, national law, and, in fact, God’s law.”

Like the Soviet Union, Flint said the Chinese Communist Party had collapsed and was “left in the trash can of history.”

Comments from Australian leaders came when the United States called on China to end the persecution of Falun Gong.

State Department spokesperson Ned Price at State Department press conference Said On July 19, the Biden administration called for “PRC to immediately stop the campaign against Falun Gong practitioners and release those imprisoned for their beliefs.”

“Tomorrow, we have 22 years since the People’s Republic of China launched a crackdown campaign against millions of practitioners, advocates and human rights advocates working to protect the Falun Gong movement and its rights. We are aware that thousands of Falun Gong practitioners face detention, harassment and report torture and abuse each year simply by refusing.[1] To practice their beliefs peacefully. “
