Protest to be Held in Front of Chinese Consulate

Press Release: NZ Falun Dafa Association

Chinese Police Rape Two Female Falun Gong Practitioners

Activities in Protest to be Held in Front of Chinese Consulate


What: Speeches from NZ Falun Gong (aka Falun Dafa) practitioners condemning the rapes and continued brutal persecution, plus sit in protest.

When: 3pm, Tuesday 13th December, 2005


The Falun Dafa Association has recently learned of the brutal rape of yet another two Falun Gong women, aged 42 and 51, by Chinese police in China. Shocking photos of the victims obtained by the Falun Dafa Information Centre (FDI) show the violent nature of the rapes.

Mrs Liu Jizhi, a 51-year-old wife and mother, and 42-year-old Ms. Han Yuzhi were both beaten and raped by a Chinese policeman one after another on November 25th, while another police officer looked on.

After being released on bail, Mrs Liu fled from home to live in exile in order to avoid further persecution from Chinese authorities. However, Chinese Falun Dafa website minghui.net was able to find Mrs Liu for an interview regarding the rapes, which can be found at http://www.minghui.cc/mh/articles/2005/12/8/116146.html

Accounts of rape in the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) persecution of Falun Gong are becoming increasingly common. “For the CCP, torture is not a ‘problem’ or ‘scourge’ to be stamped out, but rather, one of the primary ways in which it maintains control over people,” stated FDI spokesperson Levi Browde”.

Over 44,000 cases of torture and severe abuse of Falun Gong practitioners in China have been documented. Many cases, including both men and women, involve sexual abuse or rape.

Gordon Campbell: On How National’s ”New” Welfare Plan Resurrects A Past Failure


Sam Uffindell’s defenders keep reminding us that he was only 16 at the time of the King’s College incident, and haven’t we all done things in our teens that, as adults, we look back on with shame and embarrassment? True. Let's be honest. Haven’t we all at one time or another, joined a gang and beaten a smaller, younger kid black and blue with wooden clubs? In that respect, Uffindell’s defenders on the streets of Tauranga risk sounding a bit like the psychiatrist Kargol played by Graham Chapman on Monty Python. Some of the media commentary has also noted how the Uffindell saga has taken the shine off National’s good poll results and distracted us all from the unveiling of an important welfare policy at the recent National Patty conference. OK… So let's put the spotlight back on that welfare policy...
