The US House of Representatives has called for the sacking of the Chinese
Communist Partyís Major-General Zhu Chenghu after his recent statement
that China would attack over one hundred American cities with nuclear
weapons if the United States interferes in a war between Communist China
General Zhu was speaking at a function for foreign journalists organized
by the Chinese Foreign Affairs Ministry on July 14. During the function
Zhu said: ďWe...will prepare ourselves for the destruction of all of the
[Chinese] cities east of Xian. Of course, the Americans will also have to
expect that hundreds...of cities will be destroyed by the Chinese.Ē Zhu
has previously said that China has the capability to attack the USA with
long range missiles. The general is a professor and dean in Chinaís No. 1
National Defense University Strategic Defense Institute which is under the
direct leadership of the CCPís Central Military Committee.
Britainís London Telegraph published an editorial titled, ďThe Bullies in
Beijing,Ē in which the editors said that Zhuís speech is similar to one
made by Mao Zedong in 1957. Mao said that nuclear war would both raze
ďimperialismĒ to the ground and kill half the worldís people. Although
General Zhu is not currently a member of Mainlandís Chinaís policy
establishment, his speech was given during the critical period of US-China
trade discussions and the Kuomintangís presidential election in Taiwan.
Purposely Arranged by Beijing
The Chinese Communist Party did not reject Zhuís speech and a spokesperson
from the Foreign Affairs Ministry said Zhuís speech was his own personal
opinion. This spokesperson declined to comment on whether or not the
speech represented the governmentís view.
Although General Zhu emphasized that what he said was his own opinion, a
Pentagon official, speaking to a reporter at the Washington Times, said
that Chinese generals normally express only official positions and that
Zhuís comments represent the views of senior Chinese military officers.
ďThese comments are a signal to all of Asia that China does not fear US
forces,Ē this official said. He added that a disclosure such as this of
elements in a Chinese war plan may have either been inadvertent, or
cleared in advance by senior political leaders.
Professor Tang Ben of the Claremont Instituteís Asian Studies Center
published an article in Singaporeís Lianhe Zaobao on July 20, in which he
asserted that what General Zhu alluded to was actually Beijingís strategy
to deal with current world circumstances, even though Beijing labeled his
remarks as ďpersonal opinion.Ē Professor Tang wrote that people aware of
the CCPís diplomatic history would know that Zhuís speech was purposely
arranged by Beijing and not written by himself.
Tang says that China has always used diplomats to discuss major issues, to
prevent its military from commenting on sensitive foreign affairs topics.
So in this instance, according to Professor Tang, CCP leaders in
Zhongnanhai (the Chinese Kremlin) used a medium ranking official to state
what they themselves could not say publicly.
Andrew Yang, Secretary General of the Taiwan Council of Advanced Policy
Studies (CAPS), said that Zhuís speech is specifically directed at both
the United States and Japan, because they announced for the first time
that Taiwanís security is of concern to both countries. Beijingís
communist government is watching how they respond in order to learn what
policy will be adopted towards China. Mr. Yang also said that Zhuís speech
means the decision-makers in Beijing have already had discussions
regarding changes in Chinaís ďno nuclear first strike policy.Ē
Speech Represents Views of Some of the Military
The editor of Taiwanís Top Technology military magazine, Mr. Xie
Zhongping, is not surprised that Zhuís speech represents the views of some
inside the Chinese military. Mr. Xie said that the part of the speech
referring to the destruction of hundreds of American cities is the basic
estimate of the situation by part of the Chinese military, even the
government. His explanation is that the CCPís government could tolerate
more civilian and military casualties than could the US government or
In an interview with Austriaís Die Presse, political science professor
Ming Chu-cheng of Taiwan University said he also believes that General
Zhuís speech represents the view of part of the Chinese military.
Professor Ming believes that Beijing uses fanatical nationalism to
manipulate Chinaís internal affairs, to divert attention from the
increasing poverty in the countryside and peopleís lack of confidence. All
the saber-rattling over Taiwan serves to warn and quell any rebellion
US Congress Asks China to Sack its General
US State Department spokesman Sean McCormack called Zhuís remarks ďhighly
irresponsibleĒ and told reporters that they hoped these were not the views
of the Chinese government.
On July 20, the US House of Representatives passed an amendment drafted by
Congressman Tom Tancredo (R-CO) that ďexpresses the sense of Congress that
recent comments made by Chinese Major General Zhu Chenghu which openly
advocate the use of nuclear weapons against the United States damage
US-China relations and violate Chinaís commitment to resolve its
differences with Taiwan peacefully. It further expresses that the
government of the Peopleís Republic of China should renounce the use of
force against Taiwan, reject General Zhuís statements and remove Zhu from
Also on July 20, in an amendment to the Appropriation Bill for the
Department of State, the House urged the State Department to allow senior
Taiwanese officials to visit the United States and communicate with their
US counterparts. The House amendment specifically named Taiwanís
President, Vice-President, and the ministers of foreign affairs and
defense as examples, and said it is in the interests of the United States
for them to visit.
CCP Spy Network Runs Deep in U.S.
Military laboratories, Ivy League universities, private citizens face
widespread espionage and repression from Chinese agents
By Jonathan Browde
The Epoch Times
Jun 20, 2005
A large network of Chinese Communist Party (CCP) spies is rampant in the
U.S., say members of Congress, Ivy League academics, and two defecting CCP
The spies aim not only to steal military and technology secrets but also
to influence, repress, and even control the ideals and actions of
In defecting in Australia early in June, CCP officials Mr. Hao Fengiun and
Mr. Chen Yonglin sparked a string of headlines, first in Australia then in
Canada, about a massive network of CCP spies in Western countries that
could far exceed previously held estimates of the problem.
On the heels of these revelations, Australiaís foreign minister and
Canadaís prime minister both personally responded to criticism from
opposition leaders that their governments had not done enough to curb
espionage and other illicit activity by CCP agents in their countries.
According to one scholar with intimate knowledge of several Ivy League
universities and associated research centers, however, the problem is far
greater in the United States, where a public dialogue on the issue has yet
ďIf China has deployed 1,000 spies to Australia and another 1,000 to
Canada,Ē the scholar noted, ďcan you imagine how many are here in the
Military Designs and Technology Stolen
Prior to 9/11, Chinese espionage was a top concern among the nationís
lawmakers and security agencies.
In May 1999, a Congressional select committee on military and commercial
concerns with the Peopleís Republic of China (PRC) issued a report
detailing the problems of Chinese espionage in the U.S. According to the
declassified version of the report, known as the Cox Report, the primary
targets of Chinese espionage had been the nationís weapons laboratories,
such as Los Alamos, Lawrence Livermore, Oak Ridge and Sandia.
Dating back several decades ďand almost certainly continu[ing] today,Ē the
report says key military technologies such as advanced thermonuclear
weapons, the neutron bomb and an assortment of nuclear missiles had been
taken by Chinese spies.
ďThe PRC,Ē says the report, ďuses a variety of techniques, including
espionage, controlled commercial entities, and a network of individuals
and organizations that engage in a vast array of contact with scientists,
business people, and academics.Ē
According to the FBIís annual report, there has been a 20-30 percent rise
in the number of Chinese espionage cases in Silicon Valley, a hotbed of
technology innovation located south of San Francisco.
On February 13, 2005, Time magazine reported that over 3,000 companies in
the U.S. are suspected of gathering intelligence for the PRC. Many of
these companies, says a source who has worked with a number of Ivy League
Universities and associated research centers, are fronts for Chinaís
ďPeopleís Liberation Army.Ē
According to Xu Wenli, a pro-democracy advocate who was jailed for 12
years in China, the CCP actively recruits and sends students abroad to
gather information for the government. Some of these students then move on
to work for military and government contractors here in the U.S.óall the
while, gathering and sending information back to the CCP.
More recently, however, another side of Chinaís spy network, one that aims
to influence, repress, or control ideology and discussions on university
campuses, has been highlighted.
Chinese Communist Fronts Mobilized at U.S. Universities
According to several academics at Yale, Harvard, Columbia University and
the University of Pennsylvania, the CCP has been very active on U.S.
campuses. Working primarily through on-campus student groups, they say
Chinese consulate officials seek to silence academics critical of the CCP,
and promote the regime as peaceful, progressive and a vital player on the
According to one Ivy League scholar, Chinese consulate officials meet with
students on campus, providing them with direction and organizing ďunited
frontsĒ against CCP critics.
ďI was present at one such meeting,Ē said the scholar.
As a result, lecturers at the universities offering critical analyses of
the Chinese government have sometimes met with hecklers who would stand up
and yell at them in the middle of their lectures. ďThe aim,Ē says the
scholar, ďis to not only discredit the lecturer and the subject matter,
but also intimidate fellow students from adopting points of view critical
of China. This has happened to me on a number of occasions.Ē
According to this scholar, consulate officials also pay students to attend
rallies and other events promoting the Beijing government. Dr. Yi Rong, a
human rights worker in New York City concurs. ďChinese students are paid
and bussed in by the hundreds to form a greeting rally whenever a
high-ranking Chinese official visits the city,Ē says Dr. Yi.
In October 2002, Chinese students from several universities, including the
University of Chicago and University of Houston, were offered free
clothing and payment to welcome then-Chinese leader Jiang Zemin during his
trip to Chicago and Houston. In an e-mail to the students, the Friendship
Association of Chinese Students & Scholars described the event as a
ďserious political taskĒ and, according to Voice of America, required all
participants to sign a document forfeiting their First Amendment rights
during the event in an apparent attempt to curb any would-be protesters.
Any one violating the agreement could be fined up to $5,000 dollars, VOA
The First Secretary of the Office of Tibet in New York City, (Snu) Tendar,
says the CCP has also deployed teams of ďscholarsĒ around the world to
deliver lectures at major universities. Tendar says that using the forum
of scholarly discourse and lectures, these teams have promoted pro-Beijing
ideas, such as classifying the invasion of Tibet as a ďliberationĒ of the
people from the ďfeudal lordsĒ of the Dalai Lama.
At Columbia University, hate literature was found posted in the Asia
Studies building, reiterating word-for-word CCP propaganda against the
Falun Gong group. Campus police quickly disposed of the materials upon
At Yale University, a student running for president of the Association of
Chinese Students & Scholars at Yale (ACSSY) quickly found herself a target
of criticisms attacking her personal beliefs when it became known she
practices Falun Gong. During a public debate on the day before the
election, a member of the audience asked, ďIf you get elected, how are we
going to keep our relations with the Chinese consulate?Ē
Many of the ACSSY activities around campus are sponsored by the New York
ďYouíd think that an Ivy League campus would be free of this sort of
thing,Ē says one graduate student at Columbia University, ďgiven the
weight that dialogue, diversity, respect, and tolerance have in our
community. But itís pretty clear these arenít quite traditions or values
Chinaís current leadership subscribes to, and thatís why weíre seeing acts
of hate and intimidation like these happening here, in the U.S., of all
CCP Repression of Falun Gong Throughout U.S.
Outside university campuses, CCP agents or those believed to be working
under their direction, have sought to repress and intimidate practitioners
of Falun Gong, Tibetans and other groups perceived as a threat or vocal
critics of the CCP.
Acting as a volunteer spokesperson for Falun Gong in New York City, Ms.
Gail Rachlin says her apartment has been broken into five times since the
CCP first launched its campaign to eradicate Falun Gong in 1999. In each
break-in, no valuables were stolen. ďOnly my personal phone listÖa
rolodexÖ.things like that,Ē says Rachlin.
On two separate occasions, Dr. Sen Nieh, a professor at Catholic
University of America in Washington D.C and a local Falun Gong
spokesperson, has come home to find private conversations with
friendsówhich took place in public venues such as parks or
walkwaysórecorded on his answering machine. The second of the two
instances, reported in the Washington Post on July 20, 2001, was a
conversation he had with other Falun Gong practitioners while standing
outside a Senate building on Capitol Hill immediately after meeting with a
senatorís staff to brief them on the persecution of Falun Gong.
ďObviously, they are trying to send a clear message that they are watching
us at every moment...theyíre trying to scare us,Ē says Dr. Nieh.
In January 2003, Hong Lei, a spokesperson for the Chinese consulate in San
Francisco, went on local Chinese television to say that the consulate had
a list of all Falun Gong practitioners in the San Francisco Bay area and
warned them not to go back to China.
Public venues have also come under fire. Hotels in San Francisco and New
York have been contacted by Chinese consular officials or threatened by
unidentified callers, pressuring them not to allow Falun Gong events to be
conducted in their facilities. In November 2004, the National Arts Club in
New York City received several threatening phone calls, including at least
one bomb threat, on the opening night of an art exhibit with works
depicting the Falun Gong practice and the persecution in China.
Several Falun Gong spokespersons have reported receiving death threats.
There has also been actual violence.
In September 2001, two assailants attacked Falun Gong practitioners
conducting a sit-in outside the Chinese consulate in Chicago, beating one
victim to the ground and tearing his clothing. Two of the assailants were
arrested and pled guilty to battery. They were both members of an
organization with very close ties to the Chinese consulate.
In June 2003, a group of assailants attacked several Falun Gong
practitioners as they demonstrated outside a restaurant in New Yorkís
Chinatown. The head of a local Chinese community organization, Mr. Guan
Jun Liang, was arrested in connection with the attack. Criminal charges
against Liang, who personally greeted Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao when he
visited New York in 2003, were dropped, but a civil lawsuit against Liang
is in progress.
Falun Gong practitioners have also been physically attacked in San
Francisco, Toronto, and Boston.
The United States Congress passed a concurrent resolution in September
2004, condemning Chinaís actions of spying on and harassing Americans who
practice Falun Gong, which listed instances of breaking and entering as
well as assault and battery.
The Epoch Times | Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party
More than a decade after the fall of the former Soviet Union
and Eastern European communist regimes, the international
communist movement has been spurned worldwide. The demise of
the Chinese Communist Party is only a matter of time.
1. On What the Communist Party Is
This article concerns the impact on the civilization of
China of the communist movement and the Communist Party.
Looking at the history of Chinaís last 160 years, nearly one
hundred million people have died unnatural deaths and almost
all of the traditional Chinese culture and civilization have
been destroyed. What have been the consequences, whether the
CCP was chosen by the Chinese or it was imposed on China
from the outside?
2. On the Beginnings of the Chinese Communist Party
Why did the Communist Party emerge, grow and eventually
seize power in contemporary China? Did the Chinese people
choose the Communist Party? Or, did the Communist Party gang
up and force Chinese people to accept it? The CCP has set
itself above all, conquering all in its path, thereby
bringing endless catastrophe to China.
3. On the Tyranny of the Chinese Communist Party
Today the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)ís violence and
abuses are even more severe than those of the tyrannical Qin
Dynasty. The CCPís philosophy is one of ďstruggle,Ē and the
CCPís rule has been built upon a series of ďclass
struggles,Ē ďpath struggles,Ē and ďideological struggles,Ē
both in China and toward other nations.
4. On How the Communist Party Is an Anti-Universe Force
In the last hundred years, the sudden invasion by the
communist specter has created a force against nature and
humanity, causing limitless agony and tragedy. It has also
pushed civilization to the brink of destruction. It has
become an extremely malevolent force against the universe.
5. On the Collusion of Jiang Zemin with the CCP to Persecute
Why is Falun Gong, which upholds the principles of
ďTruthfulness, Compassion and ToleranceĒ and has been
promulgated in over 60 countries worldwide, being persecuted
only in China, not anywhere else in the world? In this
persecution, what is the relationship between Jiang Zemin
and the CCP?
6. On How the Chinese Communist Party Destroyed Traditional
The CCP has devoted the nationís resources to destroying
Chinaís rich traditional culture. The CCPís destruction of
Chinese culture has been planned, well organized, and
systematic, made possible by the stateís use of violence.
Since its establishment, the CCP has never stopped
ďrevolutionizingĒ Chinese culture in the attempt to
completely destroy its spirit.
7. On the Chinese Communist Partyís History of Killing
The 55-year history of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is
written with blood and lies. The stories behind this bloody
history are not only brutally inhumane but also rarely
known. Under the rule of the CCP, 60 to 80 million innocent
Chinese people have been killed, leaving their broken
8. On How the Chinese Communist Party Is an Evil Cult
The Communist Party is essentially an evil cult that harms
mankind. Although the Communist Party has never called
itself a religion, it matches every single trait of a
religion. At the beginning of its establishment, it regarded
Marxism as the absolute truth in the world. It exhorted
people to engage in a life-long struggle for the goal of
building a ďcommunist heaven on earth.Ē
9. On the Unscrupulous Nature of the Chinese Communist Party
What is most terrifying is that the CCP is going all out to
try to destroy the moral foundation of the entire nation,
attempting to turn every Chinese national to various degrees
into a scoundrel in order to create an environment favorable
for the CCP to ďadvance with time.Ē It is especially
important for us to understand clearly why the CCP acts like
scoundrels and to discern its criminal nature.
Hao Fengjun Reveals Facts of the ‚Äė610 Office‚Äô
Hao Fengjun, from Model Police Officer to 610 Office Defector
By Li Hua
The Epoch Times
Jun 19, 2005
Hao Fengjun being interviewed (The Epoch Times)
MELBOURNE - Hao Fengjun never thought his visit to Melbourne‚Äôs Epoch Times
office on June 4, 2005 would send shock waves throughout Western society.
Hao chose to step forward to tell people why he defected from his post as
a police officer in China‚Äôs notorious 610 Office. He risked his own and
his family‚Äôs lives to help people understand the situation in China.
A Model Police Officer at the Public Security Bureau Branch Office
Hao Fengjun was once a model police officer. He believes that law
enforcement is a sacred profession. As a child he loved martial arts and
dreamed of becoming a policeman. He realized this dream when, in 1994, he
graduated from the Department of Law in Nankai University and joined the
Heping district branch of public security bureau in Tianjin city.
‚ÄúI was a public security police officer in Heping district, Tianjin city
from 1994 to 2000. I thought a policeman should punish evil, encourage
kindness and promote righteousness. This is how I thought and this is how
I worked. I received excellent ratings almost every year. I solved two
large-scale drug-deals and several robbery cases and was awarded Detective
Third Grade. In the chief police officer election in 1998, I was elected
to be a first-level police officer. I led over a dozen policemen from my
office to protect the area. I felt that I had reached the peak of my
No Policeman Wants to Work at the ‚Äė610 Office‚Äô
In October 2000, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) transformed the Tianjin
public security division into a public security bureau. This was a
combination of the former department of administration and security with
the mechanism of the ‚Äė610 Office.‚Äô (Editors‚Äô Note: the ‚Äė610 Office‚Äô is a
Gestapo-like special security force charged with ‚Äúeradicating‚ÄĚ the
practice of Falun Gong, using any means however brutal.) The change
improved the ability of the ‚Äė610 Office‚Äô to suppress the meditation
practice Falun Gong. The ‚Äė610 Office‚Äô has the power to issue orders to
outside organizations and conduct other organizations‚Äô investigations.
Although the ‚Äė610 Office‚Äô openly recruited within the public security
system, it received only one application. The Tianjin public security
bureau came up with a solution- to arbitrarily transfer people. Under
orders from the Tianjin public security bureau, each branch office uses a
computer program to pick at random which employees have to transfer to the
municipal security bureau. If the person fails to register at the
municipal security bureau, he will be dismissed from work. Unfortunately
Hao Fengjun was selected and transferred to the place that nobody wants to
610Ôľö The Nightmare Begins
The first day that Hao Fengjun stepped into the ‚Äė610 Office‚Äô, he knew it
was not the right place for him.
When he joined the ‚Äė610 Office‚Äô in October of 2000, there were over 40
people in one office. Hao Fengjun‚Äôs boss handed him a thick stack of
records, including details about the supposed crimes of Tianjin Falun Gong
practitioners and the CCP‚Äôs guidelines about Falun Gong. Hao‚Äôs boss asked
the newly transferred 27-year-old young man to ‚Äúlearn, study and memorize‚ÄĚ
the materials in order to build a ‚Äúsolid foundation‚ÄĚ for future
assignments requiring him to persecute Falun Gong.
‚ÄúThey tried to brainwash me. It goes on every day,‚ÄĚ Hao Fengjun said. ‚ÄúI
was never able to put my heart into it or sit still. I knew the ‚Äė610
Office‚Äô monitored, arrested, and persecuted innocent people such as Falun
Gong practitioners and other dissidents. I was tired of it. In the end I
just showed up at the office but I did not do any work. I didn‚Äôt think
this was the kind of job that a true policeman would do. Whenever I could
no longer read the materials and wanted to walk around, seniors in the
office who were quietly reading the newspaper would turn around and look
at me. I felt suffocated.‚ÄĚ
The seniors at the ‚Äė610 Office‚Äôs are CCP cadres who have worked for years
in the department of administration and security. According to Hao, they
regard punishing dissidents for the CCP as their career. They do not trust
the young men who have transferred from local offices. Hao said he could
not always escape by walking around the office and had to learn to bear
He wasn‚Äôt happy at home either. The excitement he once felt from solving
cases was replaced with silence and despair.
‚ÄúIn the ‚Äė610 Office‚Äô people talked to each other with their hands covering
their mouth. They keep their voices low and are always looking around.
After being in such an environment for a long time, people even talked
like this in public. People are always afraid of being heard and are
paranoid, as if they have mental problems.‚ÄĚ
The ‚Äė610 Office‚Äô Has a Yearly Arrest Quota
When Hao Fengjun started to work for the ‚Äė610 Office‚Äô he was assigned to
the 1st Team. ‚ÄúAs a member of the ‚Äė610 Office‚Äô my job was to guide and
coordinate with local offices to crack down on Falun Gong and analyze
A lot of information came from overseas. Hao Fengjun said, ‚ÄúThe Australian
government has been saying that only the key Falun Gong members would be
dealt with [by the CCP] and ordinary practitioners would not be punished.
I think the Australian government does not understand the true nature of
the CCP. If it only targets key members, it should be limited to a
small-scale operation and would not involve every level of the police
force. If it were a small-scale operation, the authorities would not care
about what practitioners in other parts of the world are doing. However,
Falun Gong practitioners all over the world are under CCP surveillance. I
personally received intelligence information about Falun Gong
practitioners in Australia, the United States and Canada. The CCP collects
information on overseas Falun Gong practitioners. They hope to develop
strategies and policies to dissolve the Falun Gong group internationally,
eventually eliminating the group.‚ÄĚ
The CCP‚Äôs monitoring of Falun Gong includes those practitioners who live
in Tianjin. ‚ÄúOver 30,000 Falun Gong practitioners in Tianjin have been
registered. Every year superiors give the police a 10-percent quota. This
means that the number of people the police detain, put into forced labor
camps, juvenile re-education camps, or brainwashing classes must be 10
percent of the total number of practitioners. Take 30,000 Falun Gong
practitioners as an example. Ten percent is 3,000 practitioners.‚ÄĚ So Hao
had to arrest, detain and brutally ‚Äútransform‚ÄĚ eight or ten Falun Gong
practitioners every day.
Since November 2004 when The Epoch Times published the series of editorial
articles the ‚ÄúNine Commentaries on the Communist Party‚ÄĚ, the ‚Äė610 Office‚Äô
has had additional work.
‚ÄúThe ‚Äė610 Office‚Äô of the public security bureau is responsible for
monitoring and analyzing those who resign from the CCP. Every resignation
published on the Epoch Times Tuidang (Quit the CCP) website is reviewed by
the city where it was posted. The Tianjin public security bureau has a
Falun Gong database with 30,000 Falun Gong practitioners‚Äô records. They
monitor the withdrawal website every day. For example, every day a report
with a list of names that resigned from the CCP is generated. They search
the Falun Gong database for matched names and more information, including
which local office they belong to. The information is passed to the local
office and the local office then handles the cases. In that way, whoever
publishes a resignation with their real name will be arrested.‚ÄĚ
All News about Falun Gong Coming from the ‚Äė610 Office‚Äô is Fake
‚ÄúSince I did not want to get involved in these activities and did not want
to pressure local offices, I was not able to complete my quota. From a
policeman who got rewards every year, I gradually became a policeman who
failed to meet the requirements of the ‚Äė610 Office‚Äô and who finally lost
his job as a police officer. I was demoted to the support staff.‚ÄĚ
Hao Fengjun went on: ‚ÄúActually the staff at the branch level is not
willing to persecute the detainees that they work with every day. Falun
Gong practitioners could be their next-door neighbors. How could they
possibly detain them? And they did not do anything wrong - how could we do
After witnessing Sun Ti, a Falun Gong practitioner, being beaten by the
police at the ‚Äė610 Office‚Äô (Case 103 by the ‚Äė610 Office‚Äô), Hao Fengjun
felt that he could not work there any more. ‚ÄúSun Ti was one of more than
70 Falun Gong practitioners that had been arrested. I saw her sitting on a
bench in the interrogation room. Her eyes were practically swollen shut.
The interrogator was Mu Ruili, the 2nd team leader of the ‚Äė610 Office.' He
had in his hands a steel rod 1.5 centimeters in diameter. On the desk was
a high-voltage electric baton. After I came into the room, Mu Ruili was
ordered to leave. Sun Ti cried. She lifted her blouse and showed us her
wounds. Because she was a woman I wanted to leave. She asked me to stay
and said that she only wanted to show me. She turned around and lifted up
her clothes. I was shocked. There was not one piece of normal skin in her
back. Her back was all black and blue with two 20-centimeter-long cuts
‚ÄúAt that moment, I felt my heart break.
‚ÄúI once told my boss that I was incapable of doing this job. I asked him
to let me go back to the local office. My boss said: ‚ÄėThat‚Äôs not going to
happen. It took us so long to collect these people and we still need more
help. How can I let you go? Once you are here, you cannot leave.‚Äô In the
end, my boss did transfer me to a team that does not handle Falun Gong
cases, the 4th team. Later I became my boss‚Äô driver.
‚ÄúThe CCP said that it treats Falun Gong like ‚Äėbreeze and rain during
spring time,' and like a parent disciplining their children. I would just
like to know: Would parents starve their children and beat them to death?
‚ÄúOrdinary people can‚Äôt see the truth about Falun Gong. They only hear
slurs the CCP has invented about how Falun Gong is harmful to people,
inventions such as the ‚Äėself-immolation incident in Tiananmen Square‚Äô
and the Beggar Murderer cases (in which a series of murders committed by a
man with a long history of mental problems was blamed on Falun Gong.) The
CCP wants people to think that Falun Gong is an evil cult. The government
blames all society‚Äôs ills on Falun Gong.
‚ÄúThe CCP‚Äôs media only broadcasts pictures of very clean and neat labor
camps with policeman treating Falun Gong practitioners humanely. They say
the government‚Äôs compassionate treatment moves Falun Gong practitioners to
tears. All those scenes are fabricated. The people you see might not be
genuine Falun Gong practitioners. I saw the making of one of these
fabricated TV programs. One CCTV (China Central TV) reporter interviewed
the Falun Gong practitioner Jing Zhanyi in our bureau. Even the ‚Äė610‚Äô
policemen thought the things Jing Zhanyi said were completely untrue. I
witnessed how the head of our bureau ‚Äėtaught‚Äô Mr. Jing what to say before
the interview. He threatened Mr. Jing that if he failed to say what he was
told, Jing‚Äôs detention would be extended. Mr. Jing recited his lines like
Being against the CCP Is Not Betraying China
Hao Fengjun made up his mind to leave the control of the CCP and explore
the democracy and freedom in the West. He finally arrived in Melbourne on
February 15, 2005, and applied for asylum. In Australia on June 8, Hao
Fengjun publicly announced his resignation from the CCP in front of the
Hao Fengjun said, ‚ÄúThe thing that touches me the most is that the
Australian people can say what they want when they want, anything from joy
to anger. But in China it is impossible for people to express their
feelings. There is no medium for them to vent their joy or anger. They do
not have that freedom. They have to bear their suffering silently.
‚ÄúSomeone accused me and Chen Yongli of betraying China. I want to ask this
person: If in Australia the Green Party or the Labor Party disagrees with
John Howard‚Äôs policies, do you think it is unpatriotic? The notion that
being against the CCP means that you are against China is the result of
the CCP‚Äôs incessant brainwashing.
‚ÄúI love my country and the Chinese people. It is a beautiful country with
abundant resources. But I am against the way the CCP treats the Chinese
people and I am against its prosecution of dissidents. Several days ago I
quit the CCP and other CCP related organizations - the Youth League and
the Young Pioneers. All of a sudden I felt light and relieved. I felt as
refreshed as grass covered in early morning dew.‚ÄĚ
Advice to Chinese People in Australia
Hao Fengjun said: ‚ÄúLife in Australia is tougher than life in China. The
reason I came here is not to seek a better material life, but to look for
a way to extricate myself from the heavy burden of my experiences. I want
to expose their dark nature to the people of the world so they will have a
better understanding of the CCP.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúAs a former employee of the CCP‚Äôs public security system, I recognize the
fabrications of my ex-coworkers when I read them in news articles. I hope
those who know the truth about the CCP will tell the truth. Those who work
as the CCP‚Äôs mouthpiece and do secret work for the CCP, please step down.
Your behavior and your articles clearly expose you. Your intention is well
known. When the CCP collapses, how will you face your own people?‚ÄĚ
 On January 23, 2001, a small group of people apparently set themselves
on fire in China‚Äôs Tiananmen Square. The state-run Xinhua news agency
reported the incident with unusual speed, claiming that the immolators
were practitioners of the Falun Gong spiritual practice. Evidence shows
that this incident was staged, a ploy used to turn public opinion against
a group already persecuted for their beliefs.

Chen Yonglin: CCP Believes Australian Government Can Be Bought

When Chen Yonglin, the former Chinese Communist Party (CCP) diplomat
seeking asylum in Australia, first announced his intention to defect, he
told the world about the close relationship between the CCP and the
Australian government, and stressed that the CCP operates a 1,000 person
spy network in Australia. Since then the media has been trying to follow
up on this sensitive topic, but Chen has remained silent. On June 22nd
Chen held a press conference during which he began to elaborate on his
knowledge of the dealings between the two governments. What follows are
excerpts of Chen speaking at the conference.
China Seeks To Make Australia Part of Its ďGreat Border AreaĒ
ďIn February of 2005, Zhou Wenzhong, the Chinese Vice Minister of Foreign
Affairs, held a meeting at the Chinese Embassy in Australia with the
ambassadors and consuls general to Australia and New Zealand, and the
general consuls and the diplomats in charge of political affairs. I
accompanied Qiu Shaofang, the general consul of the Chinese consulate in
Sidney, to attend the meeting.
ďThe main purpose of the meeting was to implement the decision made during
the 10th Meeting of the Chinese Diplomats in Foreign Counties held in
mid-August of 2004, at the suggestion of Hu Jintao, the General Secretary
of the CCP, to make Australia part of the ďGreat Border AreaĒ of China.
They asked each consulate to provide its point of view and suggestions for
the next step.
ďDuring the meeting, Zhou Wenzhong shared information about the CCP
Central Governmentís strategic planning toward Australia and the United
States, which is related to the close ties between these two countries.
The CCP wants to break through the military union of the two countries and
turn Australia into a second France. It hopes to shape Australia into a
country that dares to say ďnoĒ to the United States.
ďChina first started crafting its plan to reshape Australia when it
learned that Australia was planning to give up ties with Asia in favor of
stronger ties with the United States. At that time the free trade
negotiations between Australia and the United States were at a climax and
Australia had high hopes of being included in the North America Free Trade
Agreement (NAFTA). Meanwhile, Australia had a big court case pending with
Guangdong Province in China, concerning natural gas, which was making it
less and less popular with the Chinese government.
ďIn March of 2003 Tang Jaixuan, the Chinese Minister of Foreign Affairs,
visited Australia and questioned the Australian government on certain
issues, including issues related to Falun Gong. On the day before Tang
Jiaxuan arrived in Canberra, Alexander Downer, the Australian Minister for
Foreign Affairs, signed an article banning Falun Gong practitioners from
setting up signs and banners or using loud speakers to protest in front of
the Chinese embassy. Since then Downer has continued to sign similar
articles every month, which has made Tang Jiaxuan very happy.
ďThat same year, China initiated the celebration of the 30-year
anniversary of the establishment of the relationship between China and
Australia. The Chinese government sent many groups to Australia to promote
Chinese culture and political ideology.
ďIn 2003 when Hu Jintao visited Australia he received unprecedented
treatment in Canberra. Bob Brown, a congressmen belonging to the Greens-
the opposition party- was not allowed to enter the building where congress
was being held. This was done to prevent the attendance of dissidents and
Falun Gong practitioners that might have shown up as the congressmanís
guests. Hu Jintao was delighted and commented to his staff that this was a
sign that the Australian government could be influenced.
ďIn 2005 when Wu Bangguo visited Australia, he requested the same
treatmentó not to see or hear any protestors or dissidents. Next Year,
China plans to send Chinese Prime Minister Wen Jiabao to visit Australia,
and in 2007 Hu Jintao will be in Australia to attend the World Economic
The CCP Thinks The Australian Government Can Be Bought
ďOver the past several years, Chinese officials have successfully built
close personal relationships with their Australian counterparts, all for
the purpose of establishing leverage in the Australian government. The CCP
is convinced that the Australian government can be coerced to follow its
aims through application of economic pressures and incentives. It plans to
use economic pressure to force Australia to cave on political and human
ďThe dialogue on human rights between China and Australia over the past
several years was merely a show put on to appease the Australian public.
In fact, there was no progress made. When high-ranking Australian
officials visited China, they did not raise any human right issues. I knew
what was said during their visits, because a summary news brief of each
visit was sent to the consulate.Ē
Australian Minister for Foreign Affairs Helped the CCP to Wriggle Out of a
ďDue to the nature of my work as a diplomat, I have witnessed many
instances of secret dealing between the Chinese and Australian
governments, and such knowledge has weighed heavily on my conscience. I
know that the Australian Minister for Foreign Affairs and the Chinese
Embassy in Canberra share all of their information with each other. The
Australian Minister for Foreign Affairs even gives suggestions to the
Chinese government on how to handle difficult political issues.
ďFor example, Zhang Cuiying, a Falun Gong practitioner, lodged a lawsuit
in the Supreme Court of New South Wales against the former Chinese
president and the 6-10 Office for genocide, torture and crimes against
humanity. Based on an article of the national amnesty code of Australia,
the lawsuit was not handled by the Department of Foreign Affairs and
Trade, but by a special substitute process. This greatly embarrassed the
Chinese government and caused it much distress, because it did not want to
have to face Falun Gong practitioners in open court proceedings.
ďTo help the CCP, the Australian Department for Foreign Affairs and Trade
provided several solutions. Dr. Geoff Raby, Deputy Secretary of the
Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, promised the Chinese
government that when he visited China in March, 2005 that he would ask for
the materials from the Supreme Court, cancel the lawsuit by the Falun Gong
practitioners and put an end to the charges against the Chinese leader.
Raby later regretted making this offer.
ďThe Department for Foreign Affairs and Trade offered another solution: to
have the Chinese government send a representative to stand trial in place
of the leader, and thus expedite the lawsuit. The Chinese government did
not adopt this suggestion and instead decided to put pressure on the
ministry, which resulted in the ministryís cooperation in preparing many
legal documents to assist the CCP.Ē
Chen ended the press conference with this comment: ďI have witnessed too
many secret deals between the Australian and Chinese governments. I am
really concerned that I will be betrayed. Therefore, in case I should run
into sudden misfortune, I have spoken my mind to the public.Ē
