Falun Gong practitioners from Massachusetts, Rhode Island and New Hampshire gathered in Boston's Chinatown on February 21. They held banners saying "Bring Jiang Zemin, Luo Gan, Liu Jing and Zhou Yongkang to Justice" and exposed these official's crimes of persecuting Falun Gong. The practitioners brought the public up to date on lawsuits against Jiang around the world. With moving songs, they expressed their wish for all kind people to see the truth.

Jiang, Luo, Liu and Zhou Are Chief Perpetrators Responsible for the Persecution of Falun Gong

Ms. Anna Chen, Representative of Falun Dafa Information Centre in New England, made the following statement at the gathering, "Jiang Zemin, Chairman of the Central Military Commission, former Secretary General of Chinese Community Party and former Chairman, plotted and ordered the suppression of Falun Gong. Out of his own jealousy and greedy desires for power, the former Chinese leader personally ordered the establishment of the '610 Office' on June 10th, 1999. The '610 Office' was set up with the purpose of leading and inflicting systematic persecution on Falun Gong practitioners nationwide. This office has been playing a critical role in the cruel persecution it launched in July, 1999."

Luo Gan is the main leader of "610 Office." He personally ordered all levels of government, from the central to the local, from the Communist Party to Administrative Entities, from public security, courts, forced labour camps, national security, propaganda to policemen, to have unlimited power of persecution, including cruel torture, sexual abuse and even murder. He directed all political and legal commissions, state-owned facilities and businesses and neighbourhood committees to establish facilities to brainwash steadfast Falun Gong practitioners. Jiang's secret orders were to "Kill Falun Gong practitioners without any consequence", "Cremate murdered Falun Gong practitioners without identification", "Defame their reputations, Bankrupt them financially and destroy them physically."

Liu Jing was personally involved in staging the self-immolation at Tiananmen Square to evoke public hatred towards Falun Gong. Following Falun Gong practitioners' tapping into TV network in Changchun on March 5, 2002, Liu Jing made several trips to Changchun to direct a campaign of intensified persecution, resulting in 8 deaths. More than five thousand Falun Gong practitioners were arrested and fifteen thrown into prison to serve extended terms. In a crackdown planning meeting held in the Nanhu Hotel of Changchun in February, 2002, Liu Jing transmitted a secret order that shooting is allowed during arrest, which resulted in the shooting of Falun Gong practitioner Liu Chengjun, who was eventually tortured to death on December 26, 2003.

Zhou Yongkang, as Secretary of Party Committee of Sichuan Province, implemented tortures of Falun Gong practitioners in jails. Zhou ordered a "guilt by association" policy throughout Sichuan Province. "If parents practice Falun Gong, children will be fired. If children practice Falun Gong, parents will be fired. Retired Falun Gong practitioners' pensions will be stopped." From July, 1999 to December, 2003, seventy-nine Falun Gong practitioners in Sichuan were tortured to death. Among them, twenty-five were in Chongqing. As soon as he came on board as Minister of Public Security Department, Zhou held a planning meeting with leaders of bureau level on December 9, 2003. During the meeting, he continued his policy and stressed that "severe crackdown on Falun Gong should continue to be the main duty of Public Security."

New Death Cases

According to a Minghui report, twenty-four deaths of Falun Gong practitioners have been confirmed this February. They are located in Jilin Province, Heilongjiang Province, Shandong Province, Gansu Province, Sichuan Province, Hebei Province, Liaoning Province, Guizhou Province, Guangdong Province, Beijing and Shanghai.

Falun Gong Practitioners Demand Punishment of Chief Criminals

Falun Gong practitioners held banners saying "Bring Jiang, Luo, Liu and Zhou to Justice" at their gathering in Boston. Dr. Wei Pengfei of MIT said, "Falun Gong practitioners have never been involved in politics like party, power or political system issues. However, everyone is responsible for his actions. Nobody can escape from legal responsibility by hiding under the excuse of party, power, political system or even orders from upper levels. The lawsuits that Falun Gong practitioners have brought are against those who launched and participated in the persecution."

Dr. Wei also said, "By saying 'Welcome Wen Jiabao to the U.S.' and 'Bring Jiang to Justice', Falun Gong practitioners have made it clear: We love our motherland. All are welcome to learn the facts of the persecution. The activities we have are against the criminals, not against any nation or government."

Lawsuits against Persecution Criminals around the World

Lawsuits against persecution criminals including Jiang, Luo and Zhou have been filed in the U.S., Belgium, Spain, Germany, Korea and Taiwan.

On July 17, 2001, Zhao Zhifei was sued in the U.S. He was convicted on December 21 of the same year.

On February 7, 2002, Liu Qi and Xia Deren were sued in the U.S. They were convicted in June, 2003.

On February 3, 2004, the Ontario Superior Court of Justice awarded Falun Gong practitioner Mr. Joel Chipkar damages for libel against a Chinese Deputy Consul, Pan Xinchun.

In January, 2004, the names of former Chinese leader Jiang Zemin and forty-four other high officials have been placed on a watch list with Canada's Crimes Against Humanity and War Crimes Program (CAHWCP). The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) confirmed that a file has been opened with the War Crimes Unit. In the event that a perpetrator of atrocities against Falun Gong practitioners lands in Canada, a prompt investigation will be conducted.

Though it is just the beginning, it is said that justice will win eventually despite the evil violence. This is an eternal truth.

"Coming for You"

Falun Gong practitioners in New England stood in the drizzle and sang a song, "Coming for You."

"Coming from far away,
Again and again, I came for you,
I came for loving you.
Precious Chinese people, please listen to my heart-felt voice,
Falun Dafa is good, Falun Dafa Hao!
See the truth behind those lies.

Facing violence and danger,
Again and again, I came for you,
I came for loving you.
Precious Chinese people, did you know that the whole world is saying,
"Falun Dafa is good, Falun Dafa Hao!"
Do not miss this precious chance.

Do not miss this precious chance, this precious chance!"
