New Zealand: Falun Gong Practitioners Protest at the Chinese Embassy for Extending Persecution Outside China

On December 16th, 2005, nearly a hundred Falun Gong practitioners in Wellington went to the Chinese embassy in New Zealand to appeal against the Chinese Communist regime's persecution of Falun Gong and also appeal against the CCP for extending the persecution to New Zealand and interfering with citizen's freedom of speech.

New Zealand Falun Gong practitioners protest outside Chinese Embassy

In the past three years, Falun Gong practitioners in Wellington have persisted in peacefully appealing outside the Chinese Embassy every morning to expose the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) persecution of Falun Gong and to ask people to help stop the persecution. Falun Gong practitioners' peaceful and compassionate acts and their unceasing efforts have won positive responses from city government, the police and passersby. Passersby often encourage practitioners by saying, "You have done quite well, I see you here every day, I support you." When passersby see practitioners' persistent efforts in peacefully appealing despite rain or shine, they encouraged practitioners, "Never give up."

Last month, the Chinese Embassy staff was shifted. The newly arrived personnel frequently pressured the city hall, and made phone calls to harass the city hall and the police. Due to the pressure from the Chinese Embassy, the city hall and the police have delayed issuing a permit to Falun Gong practitioners to appeal outside the embassy.

The police and the city hall officers said to practitioners, "You are good people, you are very peaceful, but we are tired." Practitioners have doubled their efforts to clarify the truth to the city hall and the police, and gathered outside the Chinese Embassy on December 16th to appeal against the CCP's extension of the persecution outside China and call on people to see through the true nature of the CCP's falsehoods, violence and deception and also ask people to help stop the persecution.

Several days ago, Falun Gong practitioners from Wellington received a letter from a city councilor. The letter clearly expressed, "You have the right to peacefully protest in front of the Chinese Embassy."

The activity attracted attention from local media, the newspaper Dominion Post that has the largest circulation in Wellington, Raido NZ, Radiolive conducted interviews with Falun Gong practitioners.
