Rally: 10 Million Quit the Chinese Communists

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: SUBJECT: Public rally held in Auckland to mark 10 million quitting the Chinese Communist party and exposing China's brutal persecution against religious and political groups including Falun Gong, also known as Falun Dafa.

Rally to Mark 10 Million Quitting the Chinese Communist Party

Hundreds of New Zealanders will rally in Auckland this Saturday to mark 10million withdrawals from China's Communist Party and expose its poor human rights record.

Chinese people have been denied fundamental human rights for more than 50 years. The Chinese Government threatened life imprisonment or the death penalty for those who continued to practice unofficial religions since 1949.

The rally will start at Queen Street's downtown Auckland at 12pm on Saturday April 29. Activities will include the dramatisation of the organ harvesting and genocide in China, while urging more members to quit the party.

Falun Gong practitioners around the world are appealing for global investigations into reports of secret concentration camps in China harvesting organs from live prisoners for trade on the black market.

The urgency is such, that Falun Gong practitioners throughout New Zealand are urging Prime Minister Helen Clark to get involved.

They want the government to join an international bid to allow the investigation of concentration camps and forced labour camps, and to tell China to end its seven years of brutal persecution against Falun Gong.

The rally, organised by New Zealand's Quit the Chinese Communist Party Service Centre, follows a parade earlier this year when supporters marched down Auckland's Queen Street to celebrate 7million withdrawals, up by 3million in as many months.

Co-ordinator Ms Kerry Chen is heartened by the number of renunciations she says is largely due to the editorial "Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party" published 17 months ago by The Epoch Times.

"Thus, the withdrawals reaching the 10 million mark should be considered as an historic milestone for China and the world," she said.
