WikiLeaks recently released a telegram describing the third day of CCP’s national persecution of Falun Gong. The telegram was sent from U.S. Embassy in Beijing to Washington. D.C. on July 22, 1999. The telegram is titled, “Third Day of Persecuting Falun Gong,” translated and edited by overseas Chinese media Kanzhongguo.
The telegram says that the Politburo Standing Committee approved the persecution of Falun Gong in a meeting on July 19, 1999. The next day dozens of Falun Gong practitioners were arrested across the country.
On 21st, CCP and government officials started to attend mandatory meetings where they were asked to stop practicing Falun Gong. The message alleges that CCP Secretary General Jiang Zemin focused on handling the Falun Gong issue.
15:00pm on the 3rd day, CCP formally announced the ban of Falun Gong through CCTV to the entire nation. Soon, tens of thousands of Falun Gong practitioners went onto the streets of Beijing to protest against the arrests. According to media reports, on the 21st and 22nd, thousands of Falun Gong practitioners were detained in various parts of China.
Zhu Keming, The-First-Person-to-Sue-Jiang Zemin: “At that time we were in Beijing. We all shed tears upon hearing news of the persecution against Falun Gong, all of us. How could this happen? Such a large number of people were practicing Falun Gong; so many people were cultivating themselves toward goodness. How can the government simply suppress it?
We heard an order from the center of CCP, which could only be forwarded by mouth instead of prints or handwriting: ‘When Falun Gong practitioners are killed, they die in vain. It counts as suicide.’ This order of forcible suppression was from Jiang Zemin.”
Zhu Keming, the first person to sue Jiang Zemin, said that all the Falun Gong practitioners who came out to protest in Beijing, whether they be children or seniors, were concentrated inside a stadium in Fengtai, Beijing.
Zhu: “Inside the stadium there was no shedding. Everyone stood in the sun for hours, very crowded, children and seniors together. The government said nothing and provided no water. Other practitioners were detained in Beijing Public Security Bureau and the police station. These practitioners were very angry. Some said, ‘This government is indeed evil. They kicked us. Since there is a woman, they even undressed her, to humiliate her like rogues & scoundrels would !’ They were indeed very angry.”
The message mentioned that despite the crackdown, hundreds of Falun Gong practitioners still did exercise in some of the major parks in Beijing on the morning of the 22nd. US embassy officials saw plainclothes security personnel video- recording Falun Gong practitioners exercising in Ditan Park. But those Falun Gong practitioners obviously ignored them.
However, Chinese authorities had long been prepared to deal with continuing protests. Around 8am that day, US Embassy officials saw about 500 Falun Gong practitioners gathered “side by side” at northwest corner of Zhongnanhai near Xi’an Gate Street. About 200 uniformed police officers surrounded them.
Subsequently, a number of large buses arrived at the scene, when the police immediately began to pull the crowd into the buses.
The telegram mentions that on July 22nd, Falun Gong practitioners protested throughout Beijing. A Western news magazine editor said she saw police arresting Falun Gong practitioners and taking them away in buses, and the initial number of people arrested was about 2000.
Ms. Xu, a Falun Gong practitioner from Liaoning province in northeast China said, Jiang Zemin’s suppression of the Falun Gong is completely contrary to the Constitution and laws of China. In order to protect her freedom of belief, she also went to Beijing to appeal in order to clarify the situation to the government.
Falun Gong practitioner Ms. Xu: “On July 19th, 1999, several cooperators among Falun Gong practitioners in my city were arrested. Since the order of arrest came from the highest authority of CCP, we all went to Beijing to appeal the next day. Later there was a mass torrent of petitions in Beijing.”
Zhu Keming, entrepreneur and artist himself, specifically mentioned a misunderstanding, that Falun Gong and other Chinese people still held certain expectations of the government at the time. After the “4.25″ incident, CCP already obtained some knowledge about Falun Gong.
Then Premier Zhu Rongji even issued a notice to approve normal physical exercises, saying they would not be interfered with by the government. As a result, people believed this government to be a government of the people and sought to clarify the truth to it.
