( Video 1 ) So much evidence points towards a systematic organ harvesting mainly of living Falun Gong practitioners. To understand why the persecution of Falun Gong, also known as Falun Dafa began in China, we need to take a look at how former Chinese leader and the man who started the persecution Jiang Zemin came to power. Jiang came to power following the Tiananmen Square Massacre and the ousting of two important leaders in the Chinese Communist Party, and Zhao Ziyang and Hu Yaobang, who’s death sparked the Tiananmen Protests. But Jiang Zemin’s position was shaky. He would need something to cement his power.
( Video 2 ) During the largest gathering in Beijing since the Tiananmen Square Massacre, 10,000 Falun Gong practitioners peacefully gathered around the central appeals office next to Zhongnanhai on April 25, 1999 to appeal for their right to freely practice Falun Gong, also known as Falun Dafa. Former Chinese leader Jiang Zemin used this as a pretext to launch a nationwide crackdown that lead to a brutal persecution that continues to this day, and allowed the creation of the gestapo-like 610 Office.
( Video 3 ) What are the consequences of genocide? In 1999, Jiang Zemin declared that the Communist Party of China had to eradicate Falun Gong or else. In doing so, Jiang Zemin, and supporters like Zhou Yongkang, Bo Xilai, Li Dongsheng, Luo Gan and Zeng Qinghong, amassed massive power and untold fortunes through the persecution. But now, current Chinese leader Xi Jinping is waging an anti-corruption campaign that’s taking out members of Jiang’s Shanghai clique one by one. But is there more too it than meets the eye? Find out on the final installment of China Uncensored’s three part series on Falun Gong and why it’s persecuted in China.
