If you happened to pass by the Chinese Embassy in London on Oct,1, you may have seen banners flying and people dressed in yellow distributing pamphlets.
They are the Falun Gong, which is a Chinese based qigong. They practice meditation and strive to live by the requirements of the system, Truthfulness Compassion Tolerance.
They were protesting against the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) for attacking a Falun Gong woman named Liao Qiulan in Hong Kong.
They called on the international community to take action to help stop the abuse and persecution of countless people by the Chinese Regime.
On September 24, 2019, two masked thugs attacked Ms. Liao with a baton that resembled those used by the police.
They struck her head repeatedly, leaving her wounded and bleeding.
During the rally, Dr. Liu, a representative of the British Falun Dafa/Gong Association, condemned the violence and reminded the international community that the CCP has persecuted Falun Gong for more than 20 years.
If you are a Londener, there is no doubt that you have seen people in front of the embassy for over 17 years. peacefully protesting, no matter what the weather, day and night.
Ms. Lai from Hong Kong works in London. She condemned the brutality and said, “Ever since the CCP took control of Hong Kong, the rule of law has been steadily eroded.
Falun Gong practitioners in Hong Kong have overcome many difficulties and continue to raise awareness of the persecution.”
A woman originally from Hong Kong but who has lived in the UK for more than 10 years stopped and asked what the rally was about.
She said, “When I was in Hong Kong, I did not understand Falun Gong practitioners’ efforts to raise awareness about the persecution. These recent incidents in Hong Kong have helped me understand what the CCP is really like. I now understand Falun Gong.” She wept as she spoke.
Ms. Yan was once detained by the CCP for her belief. She addressed the rally and said, “Plainclothes officers barged into my home and kidnapped me and my husband in June 2009. They used all kinds of despicable tactics to try to force us to renounce our belief.”
She thinks that the violence in Hong Kong shows how desperate the CCP has become in its final days. “It’s a public show of force and violence that suggests the regime will soon collapse.”
Yumei Liu was subjected to more than 30 methods of torture in China. She said, “The CCP is desperate. The violence in Hong Kong suggests that the CCP will soon fall apart.”
Richard, a Chinese man from Singapore, was sightseeing in London when he noticed the rally. He paused to listen and took several photos. He said that he knew about the persecution and had signed a petition in Singapore.
He expressed concerned about the recent attack on the practitioner in Hong Kong. He said that, as a Chinese person, he knew that the CCP has been destroying China’s traditional culture.
Richard said, “Now everyone knows this. The key is how to stop it. The more people that know the CCP’s true nature, the better. I know that many countries are considering how to boycott the CCP.”
Not only boycotting the CCP but taking the Regime to court seems to be the only way to stop the atrocities.
John is a student in London, he saw them once in Chinatown. He stopped and listened to them speak for more than an hour at the rally. He was very touched and wanted to learn more. “This is a very serious fact,” he said of the attack in Hong Kong.
After the rally, John was introduced to Yumei Liu. Through a translator, Ms. Liu described her suffering during multiple detentions for her belief. She said that several of her friends were tortured to death in China.
After listening to Ms. Liu, John was shocked and said, “It’s hard to imagine that she experienced so much.” He encouraged others to continue raising awareness.
