Germany: Representatives from the World Organisation to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong Attend a Seminar on Human Rights in China

It has been a tradition of Germany’s Free Democratic Party’s (FDP) Upper Bavarian Division to hold monthly seminars to discuss issues such as foreign politics, economy, and human rights. On February 7th 2006, the seminar held in Munich had China’s Human Rights as its theme.

Mr. Kritzler, representing the World Organisation to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong (WOIPFG), and Mr. Thierack, representing the International Human Rights Organisation in Munich, were invited to give speeches.

Party members are familiar with Falun Gong being persecuted for many years in China by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Falun Gong practitioners have often been invited to talk about the CCP’s human rights persecution. A resolution was passed on the 6th of December 2005 to urge the CCP to improve on human rights. Mr. Kritzler’s report further enhanced the members’ understanding of Falun Gong and the persecution Falun Gong suffered from the CCP.

The CCP regime employs state terrorism against Falun Gong

In addition to giving a brief introduction of the WOIPFG, Mr. Kritzler talked in detail about what Falun Gong is, its origin, characteristics, reasons for its popularity in China, and why the CCP would persecute Falun Gong. The principles of “Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance” upheld by Falun Gong are in fundamental conflict with the “Deceit, Evilness and Violence“ nature of the CCP. In 1999 as people who believe in “Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance” grew in numbers, Jiang Zemin became extremely jealous. Feeding on Jiang’s intolerance, the CCP started genocide of tens of millions of believers of Falun Gong, carrying out state terrorism policies such as “destroy their reputation, bankrupt them financially and annihilate them physically.”

As a representative of the WOIPFG, Mr. Kritzler disclosed that according to the latest statistics 2,823 Falun Gong practitioners have been persecuted to death by the CCP. The extent, victim count, seriousness, and length of the persecution have rarely been seen in history. Mr. Kritzler also outlined Falun Gong’s peaceful protests globally.

Silence or protest

Mr. Thierack from the International Human Rights Organisation gave a comprehensive overview of the CCP regime’s human rights violations. Starting from a brief history of CCP’s human rights persecution, Mr. Thierack explained China’s system for re-education through forced labour with thousands of labour camps and forty to fifty million victims. He also revealed in detail CCP’s recent persecution of Chinese citizens, including hundreds of millions of Falun Gong practitioners and family Christian church members. Seventy-four million farmers live in conditions not much different from the Mao era. Two hundred million people earn less than one dollar a day. One hundred fifty million farmers became labourers in cities. Mr. Thierack also emphasised the CCP’s sabotage of minority cultures, such as Tibetan, Uygur and Mongolian. Economic benefits in mind, many famous global companies became CCP’s tools. For example, the CCP use Google, Yahoo and Microsoft to censor information. Search the word “Falun Gong” with Google in China, all you will get is slanderous abuses.

To conclude his report, Mr. Thierack raised some questions to the audience: what should the democratic countries do in face of the CCP’s tyranny - to remain silent or protest, sustain superficial dialogues with China or adopt embargos like those implemented after the Tiananmen Square Massacre or exchange trade with human rights?

A movie, The “Mercy” of the Communist Party, by Mr. Wu Hongda, was also shown at the seminar. The film showed China’s system for re-education through forced labour, executions of death row inmates and their internal organs being sold after the executions.

The CCP takes the path to its demise

The audience was stunned by the graphic display of CCP’s tyranny. Many questions were raised, such as: have the Chinese been so brutal historically or is it just the CCP? The answer was the Chinese have always believed in Gods, in Confucianism, Buddhism, or Taoism. It was the atheism of the CCP that discredited Buddha, Taos and Gods for the Chinese public and made them numb under the CCP’s tyranny. Of course there was no shortage of tyrants in Chinese history. But tyranny often denoted the ending of a dynasty. The answer was greeted with laughter and applause from participants.
