People in Japan in Favor of Bringing Former Chinese Dictator to Justice

November 28, 2015 | By a Falun Gong practitioner in Japan

(Minghui.org) Falun Gong practitioners’ non-stop peaceful efforts to raise awareness of the 16-year persecution, particularly the recent filing of lawsuits against former Chinese leader Jiang Zemin who initiated the persecution in 1999, have received worldwide support, especially in Asia.

In Japan alone, more than 45,000 signatures have been collected since July in support of the Falun Gong practitioners and their families in China who have filed criminal complaints against Jiang. Nearly 770,000 signatures have been collected in Asia as a whole, excluding China.

Signature drives are still being held across Japan. Falun Gong practitioners in Kumamoto recently went to Oita Prefecture, which is more than 200 km away, to raise awareness of the persecution of Falun Gong and collect signatures in support of the lawsuits against Jiang.

On the busy streets of Oita Prefecture, people sign to support bringing former Chinese dictator Jiang Zemin to justice.

Locals and tourists from other prefectures in Japan were quick to sign the petition when they learned how brutally a group of people who live by the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance are being persecuted.

They encouraged practitioners to keep up their efforts and wanted to help inform more people so that the persecution will end soon.

“Give me one more copy of that information. I’d like to my grandson, his wife, and my great-grandson too read about it,” said a 91-year-old woman after she signed the petition.

One woman was very upset to learn about the Chinese regime’s state-sanctioned harvesting of organs from living Falun Gong practitioners. “Live organ harvesting? I can hardly believe what I’m hearing,” she said. “How can we allow such an unspeakable human rights’ violation to go on?! Let’s work together to put an end to it!”

People Learn of Lawsuits Against Jiang Zemin from Posters Displayed in Public Places

November 29, 2015 | By a Minghui correspondent

(Minghui.org) Posters about Falun Gong and the charges that a multitude of Chinese citizens have brought against Jiang Zemin have recently appeared along busy roads, on public bulletin boards, at bus stops, and in numerous other public spaces in the cities of Changchun and Yitong. Both cities are in China’s northeastern province of Jilin.

The posters were produced by local Falun Gong practitioners. With limited resources and a high risk of arrest for producing such material, the posters appear to have been produced on home-based printers, with 16 pages A4-sized paper put together to make each one.

Jiang Zemin, former head of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), initiated the persecution of Falun Gong on July 20, 1999, and created the 610 Office, giving it the power to override the police and judicial system to carry out his persecution policy.

Over the past 16 years, more than 3,800 Falun Gong practitioners have been confirmed to have died as a direct result of the persecution. The actual toll is likely much higher, because such information is tightly censored in China. Some estimates put the likely death toll at over one million.

As the persecution has dragged on for 16 years, Falun Gong practitioners seek creative ways to inform people about Falun Gong and expose the brutal persecution. Despite risk of arrest, practitioners hang banners and posters to raise awareness of the goodness of Falun Gong and the brutality of the persecution.

The posters most recently appearing inform the public about the charges brought against Jiang Zemin as the ringleader of the persecution of Falun Gong. Under his influence, countless Chinese citizens have been unlawfully imprisoned, deprived of their constitutional right to freedom of belief, subjected to brutalities and abuse of power, and suffered innumerable instances of torture, abuse, organ harvesting and even death.

China’s Railways Complicit in the Persecution of Falun Gong

November 29, 2015

(Minghui.org) The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is using the nationwide identity card (ID) system to target Falun Gong practitioners on its railways. Many practitioners have been illegally arrested, searched, and had their personal belongings confiscated.

Six Falun Gong practitioners from Chongqing were detained at the railway police substation when they showed their ID cards to buy tickets at the Caiyuanba Railway Station. Two of the cards triggered alerts to the police. Their Falun Gong books and informational materials were confiscated.

Ms. Li Huilan was arrested at Caiyuanba Railway Station when she showed her ID to buy a ticket on July 23, 2015. She was later detained at the Qianzhugou brainwashing center in the Shapingba District of Chongqing.

Ms. Jiang Yourong was also harassed and searched at the same railway station, on the same day, after her ID triggered an alert.

Similar incidents have occurred in many railway stations in different provinces, including the Hongqiao Railway Station in Shanghai, the Fengdu Railway Station in Chongqing, and the Xuchang City Railway Station in Henan Province.

Using personal identification cards to persecute Falun Gong practitioners is illegal according to the Identification Card Act, Article 14, of Chinese Law.

It appears that local police departments have added the names of Falun Gong practitioners to the network to prompt the alerts. Authorities are notified when these ID cards are scanned.

Linking the Chinese Railway network’s ticketing system to the identification card system is also illegal. Discrimination and harassment of passengers based on their belief violates their human rights, which are protected by the Chinese Constitution.

The Railway ticketing network has no right to read a citizen’s personal identity, according to the Identification Card Act, Article 19.

Railway police are arresting passengers, and searching and confiscating their personal belongings, without showing their badges, without lawful reason, and without a warrant. This is a crime of illegal search.
