The European Divine Land Marching Band is composed of over one hundred Falun Gong practitioners. As it marched through Paris' business district, many people accepted Falun Gong flyers and information about the Eutelsat Satellite Company’s disconnection of New Tang Dynasty TV (NTDTV)'s signal to China.
Representative of the German International Human Right Organisation Wu Manyang addresses the rally.
“NTDTV broadcasting the truth to people in China is saving them from being deceived by the CCP. The French based Eutelsat Satellite Company bowed to the Chinese regime’s pressure and unreasonably terminated NTDTV’s signal to China for business and political reasons. Therefore, we hope the management of Eutelsat is able to realise that what they have done is blocking others from spreading the truth to the Chinese people, and that it will prevent tens of millions of the Chinese people from knowing the truth and undermine their interest, ” Mr. Wu added.
At the rally, the Vice-Chairman of the French Branch of the China Democracy Party Jiang Youlu said what the Chinese regime feared most was its people’s knowing the truth, as what the CCP counts on to rule China are that it always has its people live in terror on one hand and on the other it always covers up the truth with lies.
Jiang pointed out that what NTDTV is doing is simply to let the Chinese people know the truth. Since it is what the Chinese regime fears most, it thus suppresses NTDTV. He thought that Eutelsat’s support for the Chinese regime’s autocratic rule is a shame. He thus called on the French people to support NTDTV and to ask Eutelsat to resume NTDTV’s signal to China.
Well known Tiananmen Square pro-democracy activist Zhang Jian told our reporter, “The Chinese regime tried to eliminate this cultivation group through spiritual, economical and physical means. However, not only did it not succeed, but Falun Gong is stronger and stronger. NTDTV’s continuously reporting the truth is indeed a pain in the neck for the CCP, as it is what it fears most. NTDTV is restoring history by exposing the truth to the people and during the process; it evaluates non-mainstream and non-governmental activities with high moral standards. As a result, the regime tries its level best to oppress the only overseas independent television. The Chinese regime has exerted tremendous pressure on Eutelsat through the French government, including financial and political pressure as well as business intimidation.
A Falun Gong practitioner from China Ms. Cheng said, “I was brought up in China, so I fully understand the situation there. It is very hard for the Chinese people to know the truth, such as the facts of the persecution against Falun Gong and other rights defending advocates including Gao Zhicheng, Hu Jia. As an independent TV station, NTDTV can let people watch truly impartial and independent information. Therefore, NTDTV is very popular in China and it had become one of the main sources for the Chinese people to access impartial information from overseas.”
Ms. Cheng also expressed that the Eutelsat incident has occurred several months ago, but due to the Chinese Communist regime’s pressure, it has not resumed NTDTV’s signal to China. She therefore took this opportunity to call on Eutelsat to continue NTDTV’s broadcasting into China as soon as possible.
