Remarks by the Spokesperson of the Chinese Embassy on the So-called "Global Rescue Walkers" of Falun Gong (2001-09-27)


As is known to all, Falun Gong is an evil cult that jeopardizes innocent lives and threatens the society as a social scourge. With disclosure of its evil nature, Falun Gong has been rejected and cast aside by more and more people. In China, a vast majority of the Falun Gong practitioners have broken ranks with Falun Gong and started to live a normal life. In Canada, according to the polls by CFMT-TV, more than 70% interviewees believed that Falun Gong is a cult. On Sept. 20, Sing Tao Daily, a major local Chinese newspaper, ran an article in which Falun Gong was listed together with the Branch Davidians, Aum Shinrikyo, the Movement for the Restoration of the Ten Commandments of God, etc. as the threatening forces to modern society. Recently, more than 100 local Chinese associations in Ottawa, Toronto, Montreal and other cities sent petitions to the Canadian Government to disclose the cult nature of Falun Gong and its harm to the Canadian society and the Sino-Canadian relationship. These have proven that Falun Gong is losing support among the general public. With ulterior political motives, Falun Gong now resorts to despicable means to deceive and mislead the public by spreading slanderous remarks and rumors, after repeated failures. As an old Chinese saying goes, the evil will never triumph over the virtuous. Falun Gong’s schemes to undermine the Sino-Canadian relationship and tarnish the image of China are doomed to failure.
