My name is Zhang Jiyan and I am wife of a diplomat at the Chinese embassy in Canada. I have recently left the embassy.
At this event to support 20 million who have quit the Chinese Communist Party and its affiliated organizations, I not only find it a great pleasure to see so many Chinese people awakening to say "no" to the Chinese Communist Party, but I also take pride in being one of them, and can stand forward today to let out the words that have been hidden in my heart.
In China, half of the population has been subject to persecution in one way or another in the so-called political movements. Since the Chinese Communist Party came to exist, 80 million Chinese nationals have been slaughtered. The Chinese Communist Party's depletion of the Chinese people's spiritual pursuit has been a persecution of the nation's soul, which is a destruction that has affected everyone. In replacement, the Party has used its communist ideology to poison the minds of the Chinese for several generations.
In particular, the persecution of Falun Gong, which teaches cultivation of Truth, Compassion, and Tolerance, has shattered the morals and conscience in the society. To date, more than 3,000 Falun Gong practitioners have been persecuted to death; tens of thousands of them are still being held in the Chinese labour camps and prisons, where they have been subject to cruelty, tortures, their lives in great danger, their organs harvested. This reveals the evil nature of the Chinese Communist Party and shall not be tolerated, in accordance with heavenly principles.
I am here calling for all the fellow Chinese to say NO to the Chinese Communist Party so that together we make ourselves free men and women who can hold our rights and the fate of our lives in our own hands. The Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party is the solution to the communist poison. Let us spread it far and wide to help more people.
In 1995, I was a family member at the Chinese embassy in France. The embassy invited the founder of Falun Gong to give a presentation. I was deeply touched at heart by Falun Dafa's teaching of Truth, Compassion, and Tolerance. I became a practitioner later. Falun Gong spread quickly across China, and as many as 100 million Chinese people were practicing it. However, the Chinese Communist Party contradicted its earlier actions of approval by starting to crack down on the practice in 1999 on orders from Jiang Zemin.
The persecution of Falun Gong is not only systematically and widely happening in China. Just as what has been exposed by Chen Yonglin, a former diplomat at the Chinese consulate in Australia, the Chinese embassies and consulates serve as the base for attacking dissidents, especially those who practice Falun Gong in foreign lands (please see http://foreignaffairs.house.gov/archives/afhear.htm ). At the embassy, I personally witnessed materials to incite hatred against Falun Gong. The embassy has a special unit dedicated to collecting information, especially on Falun Gong practitioners.
The Chinese ambassador mentioned at the meetings attended by all embassy personnel that he went to deliver materials defaming Falun Gong to the MPs, the Canadian government officials, and the former Governor General.
The embassy has been in control of the Chinese communities to reach its goal of generating impact and influence on the mainstream society. For example, in 2005, when the NTD (New Tang Dynasty) TV was applying for the permit to CRTC (Canadian Radio and Television Commission) for broadcasting in Canada, they mobilized the pro-communist Chinese groups and the mainland Chinese students to write letters to the CRTC to stop NTD TV from entering Canada, as NTD TV is known to be a voice that reports the truth about what is happening in China, including the human rights violations, while the majority of the other Chinese media choose to either toe the Party line or self-censor in their reporting. The opinions therein expressed were all the opinions of the Chinese embassy. Furthermore, they made their efforts to lobby Rogers Cable TV to prevent NTD TV from landing in Canada.
The Chinese Communist Party has now disgraced itself with its long-term actions against conscience, and its members have quit or will quit. In 2005, the whole family of a Chinese staff member at the Chinese embassy in Canada defected (please see http://en.epochtimes.com/jiuping/newsletter/issue9/#Rally ). I am sure that I am not the last to part from the CCP in the Chinese embassy; there will be others to follow.
It is hoped the governments and peoples of various countries will see through the falsehood of the Chinese Communist Party. The Party's days are numbered.
A new China without the Chinese Communist Party is already on the horizon.
