      CCP Spy Network Runs Deep in U.S.
      Military laboratories, Ivy League universities, private citizens face
      widespread espionage and repression from Chinese agents
        (http://www.theepochtimes.com/news/5-6-20/29637.html)

      By Jonathan Browde
      The Epoch Times


      Jun 20, 2005


            (AFP/Getty Images)
      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
      officials.
      The spies aim not only to steal military and technology secrets but also
      to influence, repress, and even control the ideals and actions of
      Americans.
      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, Australias foreign minister and
      Canadas 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
      to emerge.
      If China has deployed 1,000 spies to Australia and another 1,000 to
      Canada, the scholar noted, can you imagine how many are here in the
      U.S.?
      Military Designs and Technology Stolen
      Prior to 9/11, Chinese espionage was a top concern among the nations
      lawmakers and security agencies.
      In May 1999, a Congressional select committee on military and commercial
      concerns with the Peoples 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 nations weapons laboratories,
      such as Los Alamos, Lawrence Livermore, Oak Ridge and Sandia.
      Dating back several decades and almost certainly continu[ing] today, 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.
      The PRC, says the report, uses 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.
      According to the FBIs 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 Chinas
      Peoples Liberation Army.
      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.all the
      while, gathering and sending information back to the CCP.
      More recently, however, another side of Chinas 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
      world stage.
      According to one Ivy League scholar, Chinese consulate officials meet with
      students on campus, providing them with direction and organizing united
      fronts against CCP critics.
      I was present at one such meeting, 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. The aim, says the
      scholar, is 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.
      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. Chinese students are paid
      and bussed in by the hundreds to form a greeting rally whenever a
      high-ranking Chinese official visits the city, 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
      serious political task 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
      reported.
      The First Secretary of the Office of Tibet in New York City, (Snu) Tendar,
      says the CCP has also deployed teams of scholars 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 liberation of the
      people from the feudal lords 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
      their discovery.
      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, If you get elected, how are we
      going to keep our relations with the Chinese consulate?
      Many of the ACSSY activities around campus are sponsored by the New York
      Chinese consulate.
      Youd think that an Ivy League campus would be free of this sort of
      thing, says one graduate student at Columbia University, given the
      weight that dialogue, diversity, respect, and tolerance have in our
      community. But its pretty clear these arent quite traditions or values
      Chinas current leadership subscribes to, and thats why were seeing acts
      of hate and intimidation like these happening here, in the U.S., of all
      places.
      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. Only my personal phone lista
      rolodex.things like that, 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
      friendswhich took place in public venues such as parks or
      walkwaysrecorded 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
      senators staff to brief them on the persecution of Falun Gong.
      Obviously, they are trying to send a clear message that they are watching
      us at every moment...theyre trying to scare us, 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 Yorks
      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 Chinas 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 Statements of Defecting Chinese Sparks Debate in Canadian Parliament Following the statements made by defecting Chinese agents about the Chinese spy network in Canada, the threat of Chinese spies in Canada is getting more recognition from the government. According to Hao Fengiun, a former 610 Office agent in China, there are over 1000 agents in Canada whose primary task is to imform on Falun Gong and other religious grougs persecuted by the Chinese government. Conservative leader Stephen Harper pressed Prime Minister Paul Martin in the House of Commons Wednesday for not doing more to protect Canadians and defend the nation's soverignty from foreign agents. Today the former head of the CSIS [Canadian Security and Intelligence Service] Asia desk confirmed reports from defectors that close to 1000 Chinese government agent spies have infiltrated Canada, said Harper. Did the Prime Minister explicitly raise this violation of our sovereignty when he met with leading Chinese government officials in Beijing earlier this year? Asked Harper. The Prime Minister indicated that he did raise the issue when he met with Chinese officials. (http://www.theepochtimes.com/news/5-6-17/29623.html)
       Hao Fengjun Reveals Facts of the ‘610 Office’       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’s 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’s notorious 610 Office. He risked his own and       his family’s 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.       “I 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       career.”       No Policeman Wants to Work at the ‘610 Office’       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 ‘610 Office.’ (Editors’ Note: the ‘610 Office’ is a       Gestapo-like special security force charged with “eradicating” the       practice of Falun Gong, using any means however brutal.) The change       improved the ability of the ‘610 Office’ to suppress the meditation       practice Falun Gong. The ‘610 Office’ has the power to issue orders to       outside organizations and conduct other organizations’ investigations.       Although the ‘610 Office’ 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       be.       610: The Nightmare Begins       The first day that Hao Fengjun stepped into the ‘610 Office’, he knew it       was not the right place for him.       When he joined the ‘610 Office’ in October of 2000, there were over 40       people in one office. Hao Fengjun’s boss handed him a thick stack of       records, including details about the supposed crimes of Tianjin Falun Gong       practitioners and the CCP’s guidelines about Falun Gong. Hao’s boss asked       the newly transferred 27-year-old young man to “learn, study and memorize”       the materials in order to build a “solid foundation” for future       assignments requiring him to persecute Falun Gong.       “They tried to brainwash me. It goes on every day,” Hao Fengjun said. “I       was never able to put my heart into it or sit still. I knew the ‘610       Office’ 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’t 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.”       The seniors at the ‘610 Office’s 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       it.       He wasn’t happy at home either. The excitement he once felt from solving       cases was replaced with silence and despair.       “In the ‘610 Office’ 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.”       The ‘610 Office’ Has a Yearly Arrest Quota       When Hao Fengjun started to work for the ‘610 Office’ he was assigned to       the 1st Team. “As a member of the ‘610 Office’ my job was to guide and       coordinate with local offices to crack down on Falun Gong and analyze       collected materials.”       A lot of information came from overseas. Hao Fengjun said, “The 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.”       The CCP’s monitoring of Falun Gong includes those practitioners who live       in Tianjin. “Over 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.” So Hao       had to arrest, detain and brutally “transform” eight or ten Falun Gong       practitioners every day.       Since November 2004 when The Epoch Times published the series of editorial       articles the “Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party”, the ‘610 Office’       has had additional work.       “The ‘610 Office’ 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’ 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.”       All News about Falun Gong Coming from the ‘610 Office’ is Fake       “Since 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 ‘610 Office’ and who finally lost       his job as a police officer. I was demoted to the support staff.”       Hao Fengjun went on: “Actually 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       it?”       After witnessing Sun Ti, a Falun Gong practitioner, being beaten by the       police at the ‘610 Office’ (Case 103 by the ‘610 Office’), Hao Fengjun       felt that he could not work there any more. “Sun 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 ‘610 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       oozing blood.       “At that moment, I felt my heart break.       “I 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: ‘That’s 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.’ 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’ driver.       “The CCP said that it treats Falun Gong like ‘breeze 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?       “Ordinary people can’t 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 ‘self-immolation incident in Tiananmen Square’[1]       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’s ills on Falun Gong.       “The CCP’s media only broadcasts pictures of very clean and neat labor       camps with policeman treating Falun Gong practitioners humanely. They say       the government’s 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 ‘610’       policemen thought the things Jing Zhanyi said were completely untrue. I       witnessed how the head of our bureau ‘taught’ Mr. Jing what to say before       the interview. He threatened Mr. Jing that if he failed to say what he was       told, Jing’s detention would be extended. Mr. Jing recited his lines like       an actor.”       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       media.       Hao Fengjun said, “The 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.       “Someone 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’s 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’s incessant brainwashing.       “I 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.”       Advice to Chinese People in Australia       Hao Fengjun said: “Life 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.”       “As a former employee of the CCP’s 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’s 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?”       Note:       [1] On January 23, 2001, a small group of people apparently set themselves       on fire in China’s 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.       To view a slow-motion analysis of the film of the incident, please go to       www.faluninfo.net/videosonline.asp (http://www.theepochtimes.com/news/5-6-19/29645.html) Copyright 2004 - The Epoch Times The book of <<9 Comments on CCP>> can be free downloaded from: http://www.theepochtimes.com/jiuping.asp ****The Statements of Defecting Chinese Sparks Debate in Canadian Parliament****** Following the statements made by defecting Chinese agents about the Chinese spy network in Canada, the threat of Chinese spies in Canada is getting more recognition from the government.

Chinese Diplomat Step out to Expose Communist Regime at Sydney 6.4 Rally --- Chinese Communist Party is collapsing from Inside 2 million people quit CCP June 4, 2005 marks the 16th anniversary of Tiananmen Student Massacre. Australian Democrats, Greens representatives and human rights groups spoke at the Rally that intends to remember the pro-democracy students killed on Tiananmen Square and 80 million people killed by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) since it came to power, and also to celebrate an anticipation of collapse of CCP--the last large communist regime in the world today. One of the feature speakers is a senior Chinese diplomat from the Chinese Consulate in Sydney, Mr. Chen Yonglin, who made his first public appearance at a June 4th Commemoration rally since he and his family had left the Chinese Consulate a week ago to defect. Mr. Chen told the rally that he went to defect for fear of persecution since had become disillusioned and could no longer support CCP's persecution of democratic group and religious group Falun Gong. It is learned that, on June 6, 2005 Mr. Chen and his wife Jin Ping also published an open statement to announce withdrawing from the Chinese Communist Party membership on the relevant web site provided by Epoch Times: http://tuidang.epochtimes.com/. Currently, an average of 20,000 people per day are publicly declaring their resignation from the Party or its affiliate organisations. By June 4, 2005, more than 2 Million people have quit the Chinese Communist Party.(The book of <<9 Comments on CCP>> can be free read / downloaded from: http://www.theepochtimes.com/jiuping.asp) Ms. Zhao from "June 4 rally organizing committee" of "Free China" praised Mr. Chen for his courage to speak out the truth and refuse to continue carrying out the persecution and terrorism policy of CCP. "Mr. Chen's defect is just a small corner of the iceberg, showing that Chinese Communist regime is collapsing from the inside. Mr. Chen is just one out of millions of Chinese people, including high-ranking officials and diplomats who disagree with the persecution and mistreatments of its own people by CCP and choose to leave it. " Ms. Zhao said, "We hope Australian government could provide protection to Mr. Chen and his family as we have promised to support human rights. " Ms. Zhao commented, "More importantly, we ask for Australian government and people to support Chinese people's efforts for real freedom and better future without CCP. There won't be real safety and freedom for Mr. Chen and all the Chinese people without the collapse of CCP." The recent flood of departures has been attributed to an exclusive report by The Epoch Times called the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party. Published in over 30 countries, the extraordinary report reveals the CCP's mass public deception, the untold killings and the CCP's pursuit to destroy traditional culture. An marking difference of this 16th's anniversary from previous ones is that this year, disappointed Chinese people stop begging CCP for change or mercy, and instead, realizing the terrorism nature and hopelessness of CCP, Chinese people choose to farewell to CCP and look for real freedom and better future to China without CCP. Being the greatest freedom movement since 1989, the large-scale withdrawal from CCP and the anticipation of the collapse of the Communist in China have marked the significant difference of this 16th anniversary, an event that would be even more significant than the 1989 fall of the Berlin Wall. Senior Chinese diplomat Chen Yonglin (C), 37, received interview and showed his consulate working ID during a rally marking the Tiananmen Square massacre anniversary, in Sydney, 04 June 2005. (Epoch Times) Background: On June 4, 2005, the 16th anniversary of Tiananmen Student Massacre, Mr. Chen Yonglin, a former 1st Secretary and Consul for Political Affairs, after defecting from Chinese Consulate a week ago for fear of persecution due to his sympathy with Falun Gong group and democratic group, made his public appearance at a rally marking the Tiananmen student massacre and support freedom of Chinese people, that was organized by "Free China" along with other human rights groups. Mr. Chen told the media that he would be persecuted if returned to Beijing and hoped that the Australian Government would help to protect him. Mr. Chen said that he had met with officials of the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs (DFAT) on four days ago but that they had refused him political asylum, and told him to apply for a refugee protection visa instead. Mr. Chen told the media that the CCP has "thousands" of secret agents in Australia who monitor and report on political dissidents and Falun Gong practitioners, and try to interfere with their activities in Australia. He said this is normal policy for the Chinese Government. Mr. Chen promised to reveal to Australians "everything I know" about threats by Chinese agents to the Australian society and its people". According to Mr. Chen, he had details of several kidnappings of Chinese defectors or dissidents from Australia, and said that two of them had been sentenced to death in China. Mr. Chen said that he feared that the same thing would happen to him if he and his family were not given asylum.

According to Hao Fengiun, a former 610 Office agent in China, there are over 1000 agents in Canada whose primary task is to imform on Falun Gong and other religious grougs persecuted by the Chinese government. Conservative leader Stephen Harper pressed Prime Minister Paul Martin in the House of Commons Wednesday for not doing more to protect Canadians and defend the nation's soverignty from foreign agents. Today the former head of the CSIS [Canadian Security and Intelligence Service] Asia desk confirmed reports from defectors that close to 1000 Chinese government agent spies have infiltrated Canada, said Harper. Did the Prime Minister explicitly raise this violation of our sovereignty when he met with leading Chinese government officials in Beijing earlier this year? Asked Harper. The Prime Minister indicated that he did raise the issue when he met with Chinese officials. (http://www.theepochtimes.com/news/5-6-17/29623.html)
