Tomorrow noon Ottawa Chinese Embassy
Got this from Epoch Times:
EDMONTON—An Edmonton woman is worried for her mother who she believes has been arrested in China and whose whereabouts is unknown.
Hongyan Lu, a Canadian citizen, says her 59-year-old mother Huixia Chen was arrested for practicing Falun Dafa, also known as Falun Gong.
Falun Dafa is a traditional meditation discipline that was practiced freely by tens of millions in China before former Chinese leader Jiang Zemin cracked down on the practice in 1999 due to its great popularity, exceeding the number of Communist Party members.
Jiang launched a brutal campaign of persecution against the practice, including detention in forced labour camps, torture, death, and forced removal of organs from living Falun Dafa adherents to sell for profit.
Here in Canada we at least voted for Baby J’s progressive government, so every abuse, outrage, oppression, or murder that happens to anyone is our own fault. Not so there.
Also, from Lu and her husband Jay Brauneisen (not linked):
Protest to call for the release of Canadian Citizen’s mother and end to the ongoing repression of Falun Gong in China:
Date: August 4rd 2016
Time: 12:00 pm (Noon)
Location: Chinese Embassy – 515 St Patrick St, Ottawa, ON K1N 5H3
Hongyan Lu and her husband Jay Brauneisen are Canadian citizens. Lu’s mother, Huixia Chen, is a Falun Dafa practitioner and was abducted along with eight other practitioners while travelling to Shijiazhuang, Hebei province to meet with them.
Falun Dafa, also known as Falun Gong, is a peaceful mediation practice based on the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance. In July 1999, fearing that Falun Dafa’s widespread popularity was overshadowing his own legacy, then-leader of the Chinese Communist Party Jiang Zemin ordered the eradication of the traditional Chinese practice. The arbitrary arrests, torture, killing, incarceration, brainwashing, and forced organ removal of Falun Dafa adherents continue to this day
Reality check: The Chinese bureaucracy probably won’t want Yu’s mother’s organs; she’s likely too old.
One beef I have with Epoch Times (said to be Falun Gong-associated) is their apparent inability to understand why so many Westerners don’t want globalization.
Memo to Epoch Times: We don’t want globalization because it averages government between free senior health care – as it existed in most Western countries prior to legal euthanasia – and your China’s “Help! My mom might be killed for donor organs!”
Legal euthanasia is the average.
Instead of raising everyone’s rights and freedoms, globalization diminishes them and will probably continue to do so.
I wish Yu well, and hope that we can work together. But we need to talk about how the public of various nations can fight back against the global elite.
What some of us wanted from globalization was English Common Law-quality civil rights for everyone, not an average between ECL and thug law. Still hopin’ though.
