Thousands Celebrate Falun Gong in East Asia as Jiang Zemin's Persecution Continues to Kill Practitioners in China Indonesia, Taiwan, Japan, Malaysia Take Part in Celebrations and Meditation Classes 11 More Deaths of Falun Gong Practitioners Reported in China FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - 5/27/2002 [ http://www.faluninfo.net/ ] -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- NEW YORK, May 27, 2002 (Falun Dafa Information Center) - The last two weeks were host to both joy and terror in East Asia. Several countries, including Japan, Taiwan, and Malaysia held festive celebrations for the founding of the Falun Gong spiritual practice, and Indonesia held classes for some 3,000 to learn the Falun Gong exercises and meditation. In a stark contrast to its neighbors, however, some police officers in China held fast to Jiang Zemin's objective to eradicate Falun Gong as reports surfaced of eleven more dead in China for advocating the freedom to practice Falun Gong. China Stands Alone on Persecution of Falun Gong After studying the teachings of Falun Gong, presbyter of the Indonesian Pesantren Assiddiqiyah in Jakarta, invited the Indonesian Falun Dafa Association to teach Falun Gong. In the opening remarks to the class, the Presbyter stated that the people of Indonesia would be truly happy and save a lot of medical expenses if they learned Falun Gong as they could improve their health and their moral quality as well as quit using drugs and smoking. Indonesia is not alone. Recently in Taiwan, schoolteachers have been offered credits for learning Falun Gong. During the 97th Taiwan Primary School Principal Training Class held from March 18 to May 10, 2002, by the National Schoolteachers Association of the Ministry of Education, a Falun Gong Association was established among schoolteachers. In the last two weeks, however, 11 deaths of Falun Gong practitioners have been reported. These people have lost their lives for persisting in the same peaceful teaching that is gaining increasing recognition in countries around the world, including East Asia.
