Gong Family Rescue Effort Calls for the Immediate Release of Family Members Illegally
Detained in China
practitioners across Australia and around the world are embarking on a worldwide
effort to rescue their family members who are being illegally held in Chinese
prisons, detention centres and forced labour camps.
following are stories of practitioners outside of China whose family members currently
suffer persecution in Chinese prisons and labour camps for their belief in a practice
that takes Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance as its only guiding principles.
The persecution by the Chinese government against peaceful Falun Gong practitioners
has been horrific and unconscionable. Yet, the strong voice of condemnation from
the public and government against these atrocities has helped to reduce the persecution
faced by Falun Gong practitioners in China.
stories demonstrate that this brutal persecution against Falun Gong is not contained
within the borders of China. These people live each day not knowing the status
of their loved ones, concerned for their well-being and knowing the past record
of brutal atrocities committed against Falun Gong practitioners in these prisons
and labour camps. The Chinese regime has also made efforts to spread this ruthless
campaign against Falun Gong to countries outside of China through hate propaganda
as well as applying political and financial pressures.
rescuing these family members, we are also sending a message to the Chinese government
that the world community does not tolerate the ruthless arrest, torture, rape,
imprisonment and murder of Falun Gong practitioners. We are thus helping to uphold
justice and to protect human rights more broadly and to prevent this evil persecution
represent only a small cross-section of those who have been affected by this persecution.
As many as 100 million innocent Falun Gong practitioners and their families have
suffered. However, your voice can help. Rescuing these Falun Gong family members
would prove to be significant in regaining the freedom of Falun Gong practitioners
in China and an end to the brutal persecution inflicted upon these innocent people.
