Chinese Regime Must End Persecution of Falun Gong Before Olympics, Says Jurist

I couldn't agree more. The Olympics are nothing but another excuse to crush dissident voices -- it has gone to the opposite extreme from the so-called expectations of the IOC to Beijing's broken promises. Let's shed the light on China's own genocide.

Epoch Times: MELBOURNE—On May 2, Yuan Hongbing, the renowned Chinese liberal jurist now living in Australia, accepted an interview with The Epoch Times to talk about the recent case in which six attorneys broke the mandate by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and openly defended in court, Wang Bo's family—a family of Falun Gong practitioners. When the persecution against Falun Gong began almost eight years ago, it also became unlawful for public defenders to represent Falun Gong practitioners.

Yuan Hongbing pointed out that the CCP will certainly be prosecuted in the near future. It must be charged with the inhumane crime of persecuting Falun Gong. The international society should urge the CCP to stop this persecution before the 2008 Olympics. (more)
