Tell China to Stop Killing its Own Citizens
On October 4, 1988, China ratified the December 10, 1984, Convention Against Torture and other cruel, inhumane or degrading treatment. On March 2, 1992, it also ratified the November 20, 1989, International Convention on the Rights of the Child. Then In March 2004, China incorporated a provision into its constitution under which the government would respect and guarantee human rights. Despite its agreement to these measures, the situation in China is growing more and more alarming. The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has left a trail of victims.
The Communist Party’s History of Violence
Since 1949, an estimated 80 million Chinese victims have died unnatural deaths because of the CCP. One of the founding principles of Communism is “class struggle”, which has resulted in a "genocide" of classes, including the rich, intellectuals, and those critical of the CCP. Here is a list of some of them.
- During Land Reforms, landowners and wealthy farmers were labeled as “reactionaries” or “bad elements” and were slaughtered.
- Reforms in industry and trade were used to eliminate the capitalist class. Chen Yi, mayor of Shanghai, is known to have asked each day: "How many parachutists did we have today?" He was referring to the many capitalists who committed suicide by throwing themselves from the tops of buildings.
- Statistics indicate that by 1950, the CCP had persecuted, including by execution, at least three million religious believers and members of clandestine groups.
- The anti-rightist movement, which first encouraged people to express themselves by promising that there would be no reprisals if they came forward, labeled 540,000 of them as "rightists." Among them 270,000 lost their jobs; 230,000 were labeled "moderate right," "anti-socialist elements," or "anti-CCP."
- Each year during the "Great Leap Forward" included such goals as "achieving a grain production of 7.5 tons per hectare," "doubling steel production," and "surpassing Britain in a decade and the United States in fifteen years." These policies led to a large national famine that cost millions of lives.
- According to even the most conservative figures, the number of unnatural deaths in China during the Cultural Revolution is estimated at 7.73 million. These unnatural deaths occurred not in episodes of rebellion but in periods of stability, as in 1968 when Mao took control of the country.
- On June 4, 1989, thousands of students, intellectuals and Chinese workers were massacred at Tiananmen Square. Their “crime” was to ask the CCP to reform. The communist regime responded to the student’s nonviolent demonstrations with military intervention using machine guns and tanks.
- On July 1999, former Communist Party leader, Jiang Zemin, mobilized the military, police, secret agents, and foreign affairs offices to carry out the persecution against Falun Gong practitioners physically;meanwhile, he had all radio stations, television stations, newspapers,and other media continuously defame and slander Falun Gong so as to incite hatred among the general public. The brutal persecution sought to destroy practitioners physically and mentally through the use of torture and forced-brainwashing; economically through the denial of employment and extortion; and socially by breaking up families via such means as detention, relocation, forced divorce, and homelessness to avoid arrest. The often severe physical abuse has resulted in countless deaths (thousands of which are documented), as well as thousands of cases of severe torture - inflicted disability.
The Chinese communist regime has joined its history with that of the Nazi regime and the Soviet regime. A wide range of groups are labeled as "dissidents" and persecuted. They include the pro-democrats, the pro-independence Taiwanese, Tibetan monks, Uighur Muslims, Christians and Buddhists, those who object when their land is confiscated, those who dare to tell the truth that the CCP wants to hide, and practitioners of Falun Gong. In arrest raids the condemned are jailed in forced labor camps, in the laogai ("re-education centers"). There the victims are submitted to a wide range of tortures, the purpose being to punish them, have them renounce their belief or practice, and submit only to the CCP.
In March 2006, the wife of a Chinese surgeon publicly revealed that hospitals throughout China have been holding prisoners – the extreme majority of whom are Falun Gong practitioners – in order to harvest their organs for profit, thus responding to the needs of patients who need a transplant. The remains of the victims, often while they are still alive, are incinerated to erase all traces of this heinous act. An independent, third-party investigation by a former Canadian member of Parliament, and a renowned human rights lawyer confirmed these allegations and reports (See: http://organharvestinvestigation.net/).
We denounce and condemn the acts of persecution launched by the Chinese Communist Party regime.
In view of the massacres perpetrated by the CCP against its own people, we can no longer support this regime. It is guilty of so many crimes. That is why we give our full support to those who have resigned from the Chinese Communist Party and encourage others to say ”no” to the CCP by resigning from the CCP and its affiliated organizations (the Communist Youth League and the Movement of Young Pioneers).
By signing our petition, you become aware of these tragic events and support the truth, so that justice can be done as soon as possible and that the true face of the CCP can be known to all.
