(Minghui.org) Falun Dafa practitioners rallied in front of the Chinese Embassy in Jakarta, Indonesia on July 4, 2015 to support the Chinese practitioners who have filed lawsuits against former dictator Jiang Zemin.
Copies of 34,581 criminal complaints from 43,404 plaintiffs sent to the Supreme People’s Procuratorate and the Supreme People’s Court in China have been submitted to the Minghui website from the end of May to the beginning of July.
Falun Gong practitioners who had escaped to foreign countries filed 393 lawsuits as well. Two Falun Dafa practitioners who had moved to Jakarta from China to avoid further persecution brought copies of the complaints they recently filed against Jiang to the rally.

Mr. Chen Handong was illegally detained in 2001 and again in 2003, for remaining steadfast in his belief in Falun Dafa. He was locked up in a brainwashing center during his second detention. He was deprived of sleep in an attempt to force him to give up his belief. He was also beaten until he vomited blood.
Another practitioner Ms. Liu Xiuyun was held in a forced labor camp for nearly two years. She was shocked with electric batons on sensitive areas of her body, deprived of sleep and subjected to other forms of torture and abuse.

Mr. Gatot Machali said that he believes justice will arrive quickly. He continued, “Falun Dafa practitioners are compassionate and tolerant towards others, but we cannot remain silent in the face of evil. We must come together to stop it, and the perpetrators must be brought to justice.”
