Falun Gong wants Minister banned from NZ

New Zealand Falun Dafa (Falun Gong) Association

Falun Gong wants Chinese “genocide” Minister banned from visiting NZ

The New Zealand Falun Dafa (Falun Gong) Association has written a letter to the New Zealand government, calling for Bo Xilai, the Chinese Minister of Commerce who has been sued for genocide in seven countries, to be banned from entering New Zealand.

Bo Xilai, who is now the Chinese Minister of Commerce, plans to accompany Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao, to visit New Zealand in early April.

Bo was the governor of Liaoning province from 2001 to 2004. During his supervision of Liaoning province, he directed, controlled, supervised, and authorized the campaign of terror and persecution against Falun Gong practitioners in his province. The deaths of 341 Falun Gong practitioners due to torture have been recorded in Liaoning province.

Recently separated sources have revealed that a concentration camp is currently running in SUJIATUN, North-Eastern China, where thousands of Falun Gong Practitioners are illegally detained and their organs are removed to sell to domestic and international buyers. The organs are removed from living Falun Gong practitioners without their consent. This concentration camp was built and operates in Liaoning province, which is the province that was under the supervision of Bo Xilai.

Bo has been sued for torture, crimes against humanity and genocide by surviving Falun Gong practitioners in several countries, including USA, UK, Poland, Peru, Chile and Germany.

New Zealand Falun Gong practitioners have written a letter to the Prime Minister, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Minister of Justice and Minister of Immigration, urging the New Zealand government to not allow Bo Xilai to enter New Zealand. Falun Gong practitioners intend to initiate legal proceeding against Bo should he be permitted to enter New Zealand.

NEW ZEALAND SHOULD KEEP ITS VALUES OF FREEDOM AND HUMAN RIGHTS. DON'T LET THESE VALUES BE POLLUTED BY ALLOWING KNOWN MASS MURDERERS ONTO OUR LAND. WE SUBMIT THAT JUSTICE REQUIRES NOTHING LESS.

BPS HYEFU WYSIWYG: Labour's Budget Plans, Families Package

“Today we are announcing the full details of the Government’s Families Package. This is paid for by rejecting National’s tax cuts and instead targeting spending at those who need it most. It will lift 88,000 children out of poverty by 2021." More>>

The spending lavished on Defence projects to meet the risks that could maybe, possibly, theoretically face New Zealand in future is breath-taking, given how successive governments have been reluctant to spend even a fraction of those amounts on the nation’s actual social needs. More>>
