On March 10th, U.K. Member of Parliament John Robinson spoke in the British Parliament on behalf of over fifteen thousand people in the U.K. who signed a petition. The petition called for the rescue of Falun Gong practitioners who are being persecuted in China, including relatives of Falun Gong practitioners living in the U.K.
After being told about the persecution against Falun Gong in China by a practitioner in his electoral district, Mr. Robinson expressed his condemnation. He met a number of U.K. practitioners who had personally suffered violations of human rights in China. He also discussed with the practitioners in his electoral district about the petition for rescuing Falun Gong practitioners in China.
Mr. Robinson said: “They are put in jail only for their belief, which is harmless to others. It is wrong to persecute them. This is actually not just an issue of Falun Gong practitioner’s rights. It’s about everybody’s rights. Everyone has the right to seek justice and impartiality. From this point on, I’m glad to be taking part in this. I feel that I must do something about this. Today, the signature collecting for this petition is completed. However, we will never stop calling on the public to condemn this brutal persecution.”
