UK Chinese Embassy Staff Discovered Videotaping Falun Gong Practitioners' Peaceful Appeal

From January 12 to 14, practitioners from the United Kingdom conducted a three-day peaceful appeal in front of the Chinese Embassy, calling upon the public to help stop the Jiang regime's ruthless persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in China. During these three days, practitioners practised Falun Gong exercises, studied the Fa [1] and sent forth righteous [can be regarded as a type of meditation] at the top of each hour on the pavement opposite the Chinese Embassy.

During the many peaceful appeal activities over the past three years, the Chinese Embassy on the opposite side of the road has often used various means to attempt to interfere with our press conferences, such as using loudspeakers to blast so-called "songs of revolution". These activities have caused residents in the neighbourhood to complain, and the police officers also felt the Embassy's behaviour was unreasonable.

However, during this press conference the Chinese Embassy acted differently: it remained quiet without using any form of loud noise to interfere. Practitioners hoped that the Embassy staff had decided to stop doing bad things and persecuting kind people. However, a practitioner discovered that some people appeared indistinctly behind a window of the Embassy building. The practitioner immediately aimed a video camera at the window. When he zoomed in, he saw a staff member of the Embassy secretly videotaping Falun Gong practitioners who were attending the peaceful appeal on the opposite street.

Practitioners understood the reason why the Embassy remained quiet this time. It turned out that the Embassy changed tactics from open to underhanded interference. Meanwhile, the facts that previously UK Falun Gong practitioners were barred from entering Hong Kong or Iceland to join peaceful appeals, and that some practitioners' family members in China are being threatened and harassed made people aware that Jiang regime holds a blacklist.

[1] "Fa" can be roughly translated as "Law" or "Principles". In Falun Gong it refers to Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance, the principles of Falun Gong.
