Chinese Tourists Support Bringing Former Dictator Jiang Zemin to Justice

August 10, 2015 | By a Falun Gong practitioner in Europe

( “We should set off firecrackers to celebrate!” said a Chinese visitor at a tourist site in Europe in response to news that hundreds of thousands of Falun Gong practitioners have filed criminal complaints against former dictator Jiang Zemin to China’s highest courts.

Another Chinese tourist said, “What are we afraid of, now that Jiang Zemin is facing his downfall? I am renouncing my communist organization membership now!”

An elderly man learned the news of the lawsuits against Jiang and said, “Suing Jiang is great! Every Chinese has suffered under his policies. We should bring him to justice. What’s wrong with Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance (the tenets of Falun Gong)? That’s exactly what China needs.”

“What Jiang has done is against the principles of Heaven,” he added. “He has to be held accountable by the law!”

Lucerne, Switzerland

Since the time that the persecution began, Chinese tourists in Europe have gradually become more open to hearing Falun Gong practitioners’ side of the story.

In Lucerne, Switzerland, a man called to his group members upon spotting a Falun Gong activity. “Hurry over. Let’s hear what they have to say. Let’s hear another voice rather than just one single voice all the time!” His fellow tourists gathered around and listened to a Falun Gong practitioner, who explained the background of Falun Gong and the persecution.

Over 20 members of the group then lined up to have this practitioner record their declarations of withdrawal from Chinese communist organizations. The practitioner wished them well as they left, to which the tourists replied, “We are so glad we met you!” and “Thank you!”

As Chinese tourists learn about the current trend of practitioners suing Jiang Zemin, increasing numbers have openly shown support for Falun Gong and many are reexamining their understanding of the persecution.

A tourist from Beijing said, “The self-immolation was broadcast every half hour back then. We should ask Jiang Zemin why has it disappeared from the media. Because it is slander and lies. I didn’t believe it even then [in 2001].”

He was referring to the staged self-immolation on Tiananmen Square during the Chinese New Year of 2001. On January 23, 2001, five individuals allegedly set themselves on fire in Tiananmen Square in Beijing. The entire scene was caught on camera from multiple angles. Beginning just hours after the event, state-controlled media was flooded with reports claiming that the self-immolators were Falun Gong practitioners. These reports included grisly footage of the victims and declared Falun Gong teachings to be directly responsible for the tragedy. Not long after the tragedy, the self-immolation was exposed as a hoax, conceived by the Communist regime to frame Falun Gong and turn public opinion against the peaceful cultivation practice. (Self-Immolation Hoax on Tiananmen Square)

Before he boarded his bus, the tourist approached a practitioner again. “Please be persistent with your efforts! It’s remarkable. We all support suing Jiang Zemin. We hope that you will bring him to court soon!” he said.

Another man took a flyer from a Falun Gong practitioner and said, “I’m still reserved on this topic of Falun Gong.”

“Have you thought about where your reservation comes from?” the practitioner asked. “Do you know that the self-immolation on Tiananmen Square was staged and a hoax?”

“Yes,” he replied.

“Then why do you still hold reservations about Falun Gong?” the practitioner responded. “It seems that, unknowingly, you have been influenced by the Party’s propaganda.”

The practitioner went on to explain that Jiang Zemin resented Falun Gong, a spiritual belief based on Chinese traditional culture of Buddhism and Taoism. Traditional Chinese belief holds that persecuting practitioners of upright spiritual practices constitutes a huge sin that is to be punished by Heaven. The persecution Jiang launched has dragged the entire Chinese population into the brutal and sinful communist “struggle,” which has caused thousands of confirmed deaths and millions of families to be torn apart.

When the practitioner suggested that all Chinese, including him, should sue Jiang Zemin, the man nodded and said, “I agree.”

Munich, Germany

At tourist sites in Munich, Germany, Falun Gong practitioners play audio recordings for the large numbers of Chinese visitors. Many tourists smile or give a thumbs-up when they hear the announcement: “Dear fellow Chinese, the days of the Party are numbered!”

Many have shared with practitioners, “Everyone is cursing the Party in China.” Another tourist said, “We have been looking forward to this day [the Party’s end]. We are happy to hear this!”

August 10, 2015 | By Falun Gong practitioners in China

( As of August 6, 2015, over 134,000 criminal complaints have been filed by Falun Dafa practitioners against former dictator Jiang Zemin. Jiang, the main culprit behind the persecution of Falun Dafa, launched the genocidal campaign that has resulted in the displacement, torture and murder of thousands of Chinese Falun Dafa practitioners.

Amidst the persecution still happening in China, news of this unprecedented wave of criminal complaints against Jiang is quickly finding its way into the public eye. Posters are appearing in many parts of China informing people about the worldwide efforts to bring Jiang to justice.

Below are posters seen in Changchun, a city in the northeast of China, where Falun Dafa was founded, and Langfang City in Hebei Province.

From Watchdog to Sympathizer

August 10, 2015

( I’ve noticed that when people learn about Falun Gong and the persecution, it reawakens their conscience. Instead of repeating the hate propaganda from the Chinese Communist Party, they begin to view Falun Gong in a positive light and eagerly share their new awareness.

Below are several examples of how people’s lives were changed after what they did.

From Watchdog to Sympathizer

After the persecution began, I noticed that, on certain holidays and anniversaries, people would follow me whenever I went out. They were ordered to monitor me and report on whether I talked to people about Falun Gong or gave out any flyers.

Over the last 16 years, many have come and gone. Most of them stopped when they learned the truth.

One day, a middle-aged woman was following me around. I was not affected in the least and continued to do what I usually did, talking to people about Falun Gong as I walked.

After a while, she realized that Falun Gong practitioners are kind, compassionate, and considerate–not at all what the communist government portrayed on TV. We became friends, and she wanted to help me tell people about Falun Gong.

We were always running into her many acquaintances and friends. They ask, “Who is this lady?” She replies, “She’s my friend who practices Falun Gong.” Then I tell them about Falun Gong and how the “self-immolation” at Tiananmen Square was staged as a propaganda stunt.

She invited me to her home during holidays and gatherings. Her relatives and friends all withdrew from the Party after they learned the truth.

She had a pretty challenging life: her son is mentally handicapped, and her husband was an alcoholic who did nothing to help her and just drank all day long. To take care of both of them, she did odd jobs to make ends meet.

But things gradually changed for her: her son now receives disability checks, and her husband stopped drinking and helps her with the household chores. They sold their home at a good price, purchased a larger one, and still have a lump sum left after renovating their new home.

She told a residential committee member, “Falun Gong is good. No matter how much you give me, I will not do what you ask. I will practice Falun Gong, too.”

Sight Regained

My relative has a friend who is a veteran. He lost sight in one eye during the war.

When I told him about the persecution of Falun Gong, he listened attentively and asked me for brochures and a DVD, and even told me his home address.

Whenever he saw me, he would ask about the current Minghui Weekly publication, other informational materials, and Shen Yun DVDs. He passed all that information on to his friends after he finished with them. He said that he had over a hundred reliable friends.

He also began to persuade others to withdraw from the Communist Party and its youth organizations. One time, he gave me a list of 30 people who wanted to quit the Party, and all of them used their real names even though they knew they could use an alias. He gave me more name lists later on. I was so delighted for him and said he would be blessed for what he had done.

He has now regained vision in his injured eye! He can event read the small print on the Shen Yun DVD cover. He has become much healthier and his wife’s insomnia went away. His grandson received top marks in school. Whenever he sees me now, he says, “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!”

Doorman Attributes His Happiness to Falun Gong

The doorman in our subdivision, who is from out of town, goes home to help at harvest time. After I gave him a Shen Yun DVD, he showed it to others in his village.

From that point on, whenever he went home, he would bring with him Shen Yun DVDs, the Nine Commentaries, copies of Minghui Weekly, and other Falun Gong materials. He brought back lists of people who wanted to quit the Communist Party, and they all used their real names.

I told him that the people in his village were fortunate to be able to see Shen Yun, and that he would be blessed for what he did. He agreed.

His son’s girlfriend broke up with him because she was upset with his financial status. Later on, he told me that his son had found someone else and was getting married; the wife-to-be was a very intelligent girl who had found a job in Shanghai.

On their wedding day, they distributed many Shen Yun DVDs to the relatives and guests. His son also found a good job, and their child was born last year.

He is always happy to see me and tells me that he attributes his happiness to the Master of Falun Dafa, for whom he is deeply grateful.
