  • Speech by European Friends of Falun Gong about the Chinese Communist Party’s Persecution Against the Practice

    "Since the persecution of Falun Gong by the Chinese government began in July 1999 the world has gradually become more and more aware of the terrible acts of torture and murder they have carried out. In recent months however, since the publication of the ‘Nine Commentaries on the Chinese Communist Party’ by The Epoch Times in November last year, we have come to learn that the persecution is inextricably conducted by the Chinese Communist Party itself, the mechanism by which the major players in Chinese politics have gained their power and authority."
  • France: President of the French Falun Gong Association Spoke at the Prayer Meeting of Asian Democracy and Peace

    So we will continue to expose and condemn the crimes committed by Jiang and the CCP. We have to be aware that all the CCP is capable of is lies and violence. When people who are deceived by it know its evil history, they will no longer be cheated. More and more people stand out to expose its crimes, and more and more people yearn for peace.

  • France: Speech Delivered In Paris On Behalf of Germany's International Society for Human Rights

    Recently the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) celebrated its 84th birthday. It is a shame to humanity that in the 21st Century a party is celebrating 84 years of killing, cheating, deception, brainwashing and physical and mental torture. Since the CCP took power in China 80 million abnormal deaths have occurred as a direct result of its tyranny.

  • Letter to the UK Prime Minister from European Friends of Falun Gong

    We wish to draw your attention to the serious situation of human rights abuse in China, and in particular to the plight of Falun Gong practitioners who have suffered the severest persecution at the hands of the Chinese Government since former President Jiang Zemin’s crackdown of the movement in July 1999. Approximately 2,500 practitioners have been tortured to death by the Chinese authorities and thousands more still languish in prisons and labour camps across the country with little hope of release.

  • European Friends of Falun Gong Speech at a London Press Conference

    The defection of the three Chinese diplomats to Australia within the last 2 weeks is a clear sign that the stranglehold of the Chinese Communist Party on its people is beginning to weaken...A common theme of all three’s explanation for their defection was their unwillingness to work any longer for the CCP or to participate in the persecution of Falun Gong. They have also been able to recount details of the methods of the persecution used by the Chinese Government since 1999, indeed Hao Fengiun actually worked for the infamous 6-10 Office which is directly responsible for monitoring Falun Gong.
  • European Friends of Falun Gong Submits a List of Chinese Communist Party Criminals to the UK Home Office

    European Friends of Falun Gong points out in the letter to the Home Office that the members of EFOFG are not Falun Gong practitioners; they are supporters of Falun Gong practitioners’ freedom of belief and basic human rights. In the last 6 six years, the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) brutal persecution of Falun Gong practitioners has violated the International Human Rights Convention which China has signed. The CCP has also gone against the rules of nature in its widespread destruction of the lives of so many innocent people and the CCP’s crimes are crimes against humanity.
  • Amnesty International's Annual Report Criticises the Continuous Persecution of Falun Gong in China

    "The Falun Gong spiritual movement remained a key target of repression, which reportedly included many arbitrary detentions. Most of those detained were assigned to periods of "re-education through Labour" without charge or trial, during which they were at high risk of torture or ill-treatment, particularly if they refused to renounce their beliefs. Others were held in prisons and psychiatric hospitals. According to overseas Falun Gong sources, more than 1,000 people detained in connection with the Falun Gong had died since the organisation was banned in 1999, mostly as a result of torture or ill-treatment."
  • "European Friends of Falun Gong" Organisation Writes to Malaysian High Commissioner

    As you are no doubt aware, over 2,300 Falun Gong practitioners have been tortured to death since China’s ban on Falun Gong in 1999, and many more thousands languish in prisons and labour camps across the country merely for exercising their constitutional right to freedom of speech and belief. For the Malaysian government to ignore the threat of further torture for Ms. Lin would be an act of extreme inhumanity and would show up Malaysia in a very negative way to the rest of the world.

  • Letter to the Singapore High Commissioner to UK from Non-governmental Organisation "European Friends of Falun Gong"

    We wish to express our extreme concern at the unjustly harsh treatment of Falun Gong practitioners Cheng Lujin and Ng Chye Huay by the Singapore authorities following their recent convictions for ‘Assembling without a permit’ and ‘Possessing and mailing out uncertified VCDs’ in February 2003 in Esplanade Park, Singapore. The pair had since been held in custody pending trial and were convicted on April 27th 2005. Both practitioners appealed against the convictions and were given excessive fines of $20,000 and $24,000 respectively by a court in Singapore.
  • A Petition from the International Society for Human Rights Calls for Immediate Action to Rescue Jiang Renzheng

    On April 9th 2005, Mr. Renzheng was sentenced without trial to three years of forced labour, to be served in a forced labour camp in Benxi City. He was sentenced because he practises Falun Gong and he was charged with “Endangering public security.” Since July 20th 1999, the day when the PRC began the persecution of Falun Gong, more than 100,000 people have been detained. As of April 2005, we are aware of 1,583 verifiable deaths due to torture while held in China’s forced labour camps, police stations and psychiatric clinics. The International Society for Human Right (ISHR) demands the immediate release of Jiang Renzheng.
  • Speech from the Vice-Chairman of “European Friends of Falun Gong” at a Press Conference to Commemmorate April 25th

    Six years ago, on the 25th April 1999, 10,000 Falun Gong practitioners appealed to the Chinese government against the curbing of their basic human rights by gathering in a peaceful protest in Beijing. As a result the Chinese government, under the leadership of then President Jiang Zemin, began its brutal persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in China. We know that so far at least 1,880 practitioners have died as a result of torture of one form or another at the hands of the authorities since then, while many thousands more still languish in prisons and labour camps throughout the country, unsure of their eventual fate.
