New York’s Chinese outraged at Falun Gong
Published Jun 15, 2008 8:52 PM
People around the world want to help earthquake survivors in China. The Falun
Gong reactionary cult is using this tragedy to attack the People’s
Republic of China.
This cult has been going to Chinese communities in New York City with banners
attacking the Chinese Communist Party. Falun Gong members have been alleged to
discourage contributions to earthquake victims.
Hundreds of thousands of Chinese people live in New York City. Many are
outraged at Falun Gong’s activities and have confronted the cult in
Manhattan’s Chinatown and in Flushing, Queens.
Despite their grief, these Chinese demonstrators are proud of the immense
rescue efforts of the People’s Liberation Army and the Communist Party.

What a contrast to George Bush, who let Black people drown and starve in New
On May 25 hundreds of Chinese people denounced the Falun Gong on Kissena
Boulevard in Flushing. Beautiful red flags of the People’s Republic were
carried by demonstrators. Despite intervention by the police, the Falun Gong
was forced to leave the area.
Confrontations between Chinese demonstrators and members of this right-wing
cult have been occurring almost daily. The May 27 New York Times reports
clashes not only in Flushing but in Manhattan’s Chinatown, with angry
Chinese yelling down the Falun Gong demonstrators. Several supporters of the
People’s Republic of China have been arrested on trumped-up charges.
Falun Gong claims to advocate meditation and exercise. Lavishly funded, Falun
Gong puts out a free newspaper called the Epoch Times that’s filled with
grotesque anti-communist lies.
According to the Xinhua news agency, Falun Gong founder Li Hongzhi called the
SARS epidemic “punishment from heaven” and instructed his followers
to hinder efforts to combat this disease. Falun Gong also accused the Chinese
government of harvesting body parts of arrested Falun Gong members, something
even the U.S. State Department has said it could find no evidence of.
