Ref: Chinese Agents Assault on Falun Gong Practitioners in Buenos Aries
We wish to bring your attention to a serious incident in Argentina, which requires your immediate response.
On Wednesday the 14th of December 2005 agents from the Chinese delegation assaulted Falun Gong practitioners who were peacefully protesting against human right violations in China, outside the National Congress in Buenos Aires, during the visit of Chinese official Luo Gan. The local time was between 11.00 – 11.30 am.
First hand witness reports said that the Chinese assailants violently punched and kicked Falun Gong practitioner, and robbed them of their banners, fliers, cameras and cell phones.
Kind Argentine citizens, who were outside the Congress, tried to stop the assailants but the Chinese agents beat them up too. All this happened in broad daylight. The Chinese agents were so daring that they used violence in front of the Argentine police and the TV, like they were in China. Many indignant Argentineans shouted to the Chinese aggressors, "This is Argentina, not communist China!"
Victims of the attack and witnesses at the scene described the assaults as highly organised and terribly violent. One man was seen being beaten to the ground and then kicked repeatedly while down. A television report confirmed that their descriptions are correct. The assailants wore identification cards around their necks, showing that they belong to the Chinese delegation.
We are shocked that the Argentinean police did not arrest the assailants who attacked peaceful Argentinean citizens.
For your information, Luo Gan is the former head of China’s 6-10 Office, a Gestapo-like organisation with a special task to persecute Falun Gong. On Tuesday, December the 13th Falun Gong practitioners in Argentina served a lawsuit on Luo Gan for his responsibility in the genocide against Falun Gong in China.
Legal actions to bring Luo Gan to justice have been initiated in Sweden, Belgium, Germany, Spain, France, Finland, Canada, Bolivia, Chile, Peru and several other countries.
We appeal to the Argentinean government and authorities to conduct a thorough investigation into the incident and bring the culprits to justice. Kindly forward our message to your Government of Argentina and all the authorities concerned.
