Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen in a Falun Gong Rally at Capitol Hill
“We have sent the message loud and clear to the Chinese Communist Party that we demand an immediate end to the persecution of the Falun Gong, that we demand that all jailed Falun Gong practitioners and other prisoners of conscience be released, and that we call on China to immediately stop its inhumane and unethical practice of organ harvesting.” —Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (Fla.)“Falun Gong is on the front line against evil. Those of us in the world who want to make it a better world understand the evil forces that are at play. One of the worst evil forces at play are the Chinese Communists that still control mainland China.” — Congressman Dana Rohrabacher (Calif.)
In addition to Congressional attention, the Department of State and Congressional-Executive Commission on China’s annual human rights report has regularly detailed large scale arbitrary detention, sexual abuse, torture, and death of Falun Gong practitioners at the hands of Chinese security agencies. It has also closely followed threats to Falun Gong practitioners’ rights in Hong Kong and Macau, including instances of discrimination and restrictions on entry into the territories.
Call, write and visit to let them know you support Falun Gong. Many levels of government have issued proclamations of recognizing the positive impact Falun Gong has had on society as well as resolutions decrying the persecution. Let them know that you appreciate their support, and ask them to continue.
Many people, both inside and outside China, are still unaware of Falun Gong and the severity of the persecution and torture in China. The Chinese Communist regime spreads propaganda demonizing Falun Gong and disguising its own brutal campaign of repression. Get the facts straight and tell more people about the human rights atrocity in China.
