TCPalm: This letter is to broaden Joe Zuther’s March 31 submission, “It’s time to put the clamps on China’s export machine.”
China has been exporting its poisonous food, furniture, drywall, children’s toys, spices and uses monies derived from these exports to suppress people.
Besides brutally persecuting Tibetans and Chinese citizens who dare to speak their grievances, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) also is persecuting a group called Falun Gong for practicing Chigong and for their spiritual beliefs in “truthfulness-compassion-forbearance.”
According to reports from human-rights lawyer David Matas, the United Nations and other organizations, from 1999 to 2008, CCP arrested more than a million Falun Gong practitioners, putting them through physical and psychiatric torture, slavery and imprisonment without trial.
To protect its international image, CCP targets foreign governments, businesses and the media through under-the-table pressure tactics, to silence them over what some legal experts have termed the “genocide of Falun Gong.”
In 2001, CCP even went so far to orchestrate the “Tiananmen Square self-immolation incident” to defame Falun Gong by hiring five people to set themselves on fire so the Chinese people would hate Falun Gong for their cruelty.
This incident was investigated by International Education Development and many other international organizations.
According to Lee Funzhi, a recent defector from China’s Ministry of Public Security (currently in the United States), CCP set aside one fourth of its annual budget for persecuting Falun Gong.
Why is CCP so invested in waging a campaign against Falun Gong? Because China’s former leader, Jiang Zemin, felt threatened by the popularity of Falun Gong membership, which has exceeded that of the CCP’s.
