Now an update on the ongoing tensions in New York City』s Flushing Chinatown. Falun Gong practitioners are still fighting for justice. Here』s more.
Queens Library, Flushing, the unlikely venue of communist propaganda fueled violence directed against Falun Gong practitioners in late May and throughout June.
On Wednesday July 2nd, Falun Gong practitioners who had been assaulted met with city council member John Liu on the 3rd floor of Queens library. Although Mr. liu listened to Falun Gong practitioners stories for over two hours, he still declined to issue a public statement condemning the violence.
A meeting was also held with council member Ellen Young on the same day. Although she clarified that a report in China Press, that stated that her self and council member Liu had reached an agreement with the police to limit the issuing of public rally permits to Falun Gong was not true, she also declined to issue a public statement condemning the violent attacks.
Council member Tony Avella made a speech to condemn the violence in Flushing on June 14th. His speech was broadcast on Chinese television.
[Tony Avella, Council Member]:
」If we can prove that the Chinese government is behind the attacks, we will ask that the Chinese council general and those members of the embassy that have condoned the attacks to be expelled from this country.」
The reason why Council members Liu and Young have failed to follow Avella』s example, to publicly condemn the violence against Falun Gong occurring on American soil, remains unclear.
