UK: International Human Rights Day in London

December 10th was International Human Rights Day and Dafa practitioners in the UK used this event to tell people about the ruthless persecution being inflicted on innocent Falun Gong practitioners by Jiang Zemin's regime. They began with a press conference at the Chinese Embassy with speeches from the Chairman of the European Falun Dafa Association Peter Jauhal and Vice-Chairman of European Friends of Falun Gong John Dee. Mr Dee talked about the Jiang regime's attempts to spread its reign of terror into the free society of Hong Kong by introducing Article 23.

The practitioners then formed a parade through London city centre and headed towards Chinatown. They carried banners and handed out materials telling people that over 500 innocent practitioners have died at the hands of Jiang's regime whilst millions have been tortured, beaten, brainwashed and illegally imprisoned. In China, the media is tightly controlled by the government and is used to defame and slander Falun Dafa. Therefore, by going to Chinatown, the Dafa practitioners hoped to be able to help the Chinese people see through Jiang's evil lies and realise that Dafa practitioners are good people and that they are being wrongfully persecuted.

The parade ended at the Prime Minister's residence where practitioners handed a letter into the Prime Minister asking for much-needed help for the practitioners in China who have been suffering daily since the persecution began on July 20th 1999. Many have lost their homes, jobs and families whilst all have lost their human rights. Practitioners hoped that the British Government could make a public statement denouncing Jiang's reign of terror and calling for an end of the violence being inflicted on people who believe in Truthfulness, Compassion, Tolerance.
