After hearing that another Dafa practitioner, Liu Chengjun, was tortured to death on December 26, 2003, Falun Gong practitioners from Tainan, Taiwan and the Global Coalition to Rescue Falun Gong Practitioners Taiwan Branch held a candlelight vigil on January 1, 2004 to commemorate Changchun Dafa practitioner Liu Chengjun.
In order to tell the public the facts of the Jiang regime's persecution of Falun Gong, on March 5, 2002, Liu Chengjun and other practitioners tapped into Changchun's cable TV network to broadcast programs exposing the atrocities against Falun Gong practitioners in China and Jiang's attempts to cover them up. This amazing event allowed many people to learn the truth. Jiang Zemin was infuriated and ordered a series of executions, targeting all persons involved in the broadcast and other practitioners of Falun Gong throughout China. Jilin Province then arrested more than 5,000 Falun Gong practitioners. Among them, at least 8 practitioners have been tortured to death, and 15 have been sentenced to 4 to 20 years in prison. Mr. Liu was arrested in March 2002. He had gone through all types of torture. He passed away on December 26, 2003 after 21 months of torture and abuse.
During the candlelight vigil, Taiwan practitioners held white candles in hand, which not only expressed their silent demonstration but also commended the righteous thoughts and actions of Liu Chengjun in intercepting TV signals to expose Jiang's lies. Besides distributing flyers to passers-by, artist Zhang Cuiying and Taiwan Falun Gong practitioner Lin Hsiaokai talked about the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in China and called on the Chinese Government to stop the inhumane persecution, punish the killers and bring Jiang and his associates to justice.
Later, practitioners read news of how Liu Chengjun was tortured to death, an open letter from Global Coalition to Rescue Falun Gong Practitioners to Chinese worldwide, statements to condemn the Jiang regime's cover up and false news to twist the truth of Mr. Liu's death, and strongly demand punishment of the killers and Jiang Zemin.
At the conclusion of the event, the practitioners sang the song, "Falun Dafa is Good" to demonstrate the gracefulness of Dafa to passers-by.
