Rally Outside the Chinese Embassy in Washington D.C. Calling for the Release of Wang Zhiwen

PureInsight | December 8, 2014

[PureInsight.org] On the afternoon of October 24, 2014, Wang Zhiwen’s daughter, Danielle Wang, held a press conference outside the CCP embassy in Washington, D.C. where she told audience members and media reporters about her father’s experiences. Falun Gong practitioners from Washington D.C. demanded for the immediate and unconditional release of Wang Zhiwen.

Danielle Wang said, “My father has been imprisoned for over 5,475 days. He wasn’t allowed to return home immediately when he was released. Instead, he was sent to a brainwashing center where he was persecuted further. It has now been 5,481 days.”

Danielle Wang told media reporters that because her father was steadfast in practicing Falun Dafa and not letting go of his faith to truthfulness, compassion and tolerance; he suffered many forms of torture while imprisoned.

Danielle Wang said, “The torture included knocking out all of his teeth, propping off his fingernails with toothpicks, not letting him sleep for an entire week, constantly being forced to wear 24-kilogram weights on his arms and legs, breaking his collarbone, not letting him get enough sleep over the years and being forced into slave labor. He has had a steel pole rammed through his knees, and he is currently suffering pain throughout his body. He looks like a thin and pallid old man now.”

Every time she talks about her father’s experience, Danielle Wang becomes very sad she says. However, only by doing this can people know that he was innocent, that there are still thousands upon thousands of Falun Gong practitioners in China suffering through the persecution.

Beijing Falun Gong practitioner Wang Zhiwen used to be a railway engineer and a main contact person for Falun Gong in the Beijing area. On October 18, 2014, after Wang Zhiwen had been released from fifteen years of illegal imprisonment, he was immediately sent to a brainwashing center in Changping Beijing by the CCP for further persecution.

Falun Gong practitioners from the Washington D.C. area held banners at the press conference demanding the CCP for the immediate and unconditional release of Wang Zhiwen.

Frank Lee, member of the Washington D.C. Falun Dafa Association, said, “We Falun Gong practitioners gather outside the Chinese embassy today calling for the CCP to immediately release Wang Zhiwen as well as awaken people’s conscience, awaken the Chinese embassy workers’ conscience and ask them to stop assisting the persecution against Falun Gong. Humanity’s law and the heavens do not allow the persecution.”

Danielle Wang also hopes that her father’s experience can awaken more people’s conscience and compassion.

Danielle Wang said, “I want to awaken Chinese people’s human nature because China is a country with 5,000 years of culture and civilization. Chinese people have a civilized and moral foundation in their bones, which isn’t something that 60 years of an evil party’s rule can destroy. Thus, I have not given up hope for them.”
