To commemorate the anniversary of 21 years since the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) launched the persecution of Falun Gong, an online rally calling to “End 21 Years’ Persecution of Falun Gong” was held.
Peter Westmore, former Chairman of the National Civic Council, a well-known think tank, said that the CCP commits crimes against humanity and mass genocide in the brutal persecution and forced organ harvesting. He said at the rally: “The Chinese Communist Party sets about the barbaric and brutal practice of killing Falun Gong practitioners for their organs to supply transplantation trade. And it’s a matter of tragic regret that the regime in Beijing with all of the tools at its disposal, which included the army, the police, those who administer the prison system and even the medical profession were all enlisted into this brutal process of killing Falun Gong practitioners to harvest their organs.”
Withdrawal from the CCP
“The 21 years of persecution has showed us the true nature of the CCP, and the ideology it supports is contrary to universal values,” said Yuan Jie, President and Editor-in-Chief of Tiananmen Times and Chairman of the China Democratic Party.
“The CCP damages morality and instigates hatred in China via violence and tyranny. The Party covered up the coronavirus epidemic, leading to the virus spreading across the world.”
Yuan said that the CCP is dangerous to the whole world. He called on CCP members to quit the Party and said each and every country should cut their relations with the CCP regime.
“The CCP never follows the international covenants it signs,” said Bon Nguyen, President of the Victorian Chapter of the Vietnamese Community in Australia.
Nguyen said that although the CCP has persecuted Chinese citizens for many years, the free world has not helped the victims, using the excuse of not interfering in in other countries’ internal affairs.
“If we continue to behave like this, what is happening in Hong Kong today will happen to us,” he warned.
“I want to end my sharing with a saying from a long time ago: if you don’t understand the Communist Party when you are 20 years old, then you don’t have a heart; but by the age of 40, if you don’t leave the communist party, then you don’t have a heart [or] a brain.”
Condemning CCP Tyranny
Prof. David Flint AM, a Member of the Order of Australia, said that the CCP convicts dissidents at will while ignoring facts, adding that these convicted victims provide more and more organs for the Party.
“It would be impossible that the organs come from a system of voluntary donations. They are coming from a live human trade. Young, wonderful people, practitioners in the Falun Gong are being taken. They’re being tortured, and they are being operated on alive. Their organs are removed and they die. This is a terrible thing. This is a crime against humanity.”
Flint called on all people of Australia and other Western countries to stand together to urge the CCP to stop the persecution.
“This is an important online rally,” said Sophie York, an Australian barrister and international humanitarian law expert. “For Falun Gong practitioners, it marks 21 years of suffering.”
York quoted the Latin maxim “Lex iniusta non est lex” in her speech, which means “Unjust laws are not laws.”
“Because of a pandemic caused by the Chinese Communist Party’s mismanagement of a novel coronavirus causing COVID-19, the health and safety of the entire world has been put at risk. Millions have been sick. Hundreds of thousands have died. “None of us will rest until there’s been an end to this appalling practice, this persecution of the Falun Gong. One day it will be brought to an end, and it will be due to the relentless efforts of good people who never give up. We will never give up.”
Paul Folley, General Manager of Australian TFP, said several million Falun Gong practitioners have suffered for 21 years in the persecution just because of their belief.
“So there is no human rights in China. Except for themselves, the CCP’s dignitaries do not believe in human rights. In the 70 years of the CCP’s rule, more than 60 million people have been killed, but the rulers of the CCP are very proud of this.”
He said that if Australians acquiesce, the CCP will also take away people’s rights in Australia. At present, Australians are waking up and realizing that the CCP’s “silent invasion” is threatening Australians’ sovereignty, freedom and way of life.
He pointed out that the CCP seems powerful, but it is actually a giant with feet of clay; it needs Western capital and assistance to survive, so it cannot last long.
