Seven Hundred and Three Fingerprints Call for Governors Attention
At the end of June, the U.S. Governor of Iowa was invited
to visit Dazhai Village, in Zhengding County, Hebei Province.
The invitation came from the People’s Republic
of China Vice President Xi Jinping.
The Chinese authorities again harassed local Falun Gong
practitioners in the name of stability maintenance.
Seven hundred and three Zhengding villagers
fingerprinted a joint letter to the U.S. Governor.
The letter asked for his attention on the
Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) human rights abuses.
On June 1, over 30 policemen from Zhengding, traveling
in four police vehicles, broke into Falun Gong practitioner
Li Lankui’s home, and ransacked it.
As they were kidnapping Li Lankui, fellow villagers
were alerted and came to block the police.
They condemned the illegal acts of the police,
and finally the police fled away.
On the morning of June 7, the police
secretly abducted Li Lankui.
His family requested information,
and the police produced the detention form.
On June 14, the police said to change
the sentence of Li Lankui to one year
and three months in a forced labor camp.
His family members refused to sign.
Li Lankui was sent to a brainwashing center
in Shijiazhuang to be persecuted.
In early July, 703 Zhengding County residents submitted
a joint letter, requesting the visiting U.S. governor to listen
to the voice of the suppressed Chinese people.
The letter asked the governor
to pay attention to the Li Lankui event.
They hoped that with the power of justice of the U.S.,
they can get protection for their freedom and safety.
Hu Jun, Director of the Rights Movement organization
pointed out that the CCP do not need any legal proceedings
to arrest and kill Chinese citizens.
The explanation of 『maintaining stability』
is because they fear their actions will be traced.
Hu Jun: “Falun Gong practitioners are telling the truth.
If so, shouldn’t the CCP be responsible for it?
It (CCP) has to be responsible, it cannot rule the country
any more, and it should not have the right to harm others.
So it is reluctant (to let the truth spread), it will continue to kill
and to detain people in prison or mental hospitals.”
Li Lankui began to practice Falun Gong in May 1999.
After just two months practicing, Jiang Zemin
and the CCP launched the suppression of Falun Gong.
Li Lankui has been subjected
to endless persecution by the CCP.
Li Meng, citizen in Hebei Province, China:
“At the end of 2008, someone put
a stone on the railway in Zhengding.
The train, carrying foreign visitors, almost crashed.
(The authorities) then utilized dozens of police cars
to try to solve the case, but did not find any evidence.
Then they said Falun Gong practitioners
did it, and abducted Li Lankui.
When the police found the person who committed
the crime, Li was then released."
Li Meng said that Li Lankui used to be in poor health.
He couldn’t work, and had to stay in bed.
Due to his miraculous recovery by practicing Falun Gong,
a lot of people locally started to practice too.
Because of this, the police continually suppressed his family.
Li Meng: “Li Lankui is quite famous locally.
He used to be paralyzed, and his wife had epilepsy.
They said that shortly after practicing Falun Gong,
all of their illnesses were gone.
Recently I heard he was often arrested by the police.
But I believe Falun Gong practitioners are good people,
and I often came out to speak for him.
I heard he was arrested again recently, and many
people tried to help him by signing a joint letter."
Wang Zhiyuan, Director of the World Organization
to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong commented.
The 13- year persecution of Falun Gong practitioners,
who believe in “Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance"
has been clearly realized by Chinese people,
and many years of CCP terror is disintegrating.
Dozens of CCP officials persecuting Falun Gong
are regarded as human rights abusers, and have been sued
internationally for Genocide, and crimes against humanity.
Hu Jun pointed out that they were not
only sued in foreign countries.
They also cannot escape punishment by law in China.
When the CCP collapses, it will disintegrate.
