TORONTO - Within 7 hours starting at 9 A.M. on February 6, Toronto resident Wang Gongshi continuously received 7 repeating calls from an anonymous number giving the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) description of the Tiananmen self-immolation incident. It was a coincidence that Wang Gongshi has been continuously investigating and tracing personnel related to scheming and participating in the self-immolation incident since the publication of the "Tiananmen self-immolation incident was directed by the Chinese government" statement by International Education Development (IED) of the United Nations on August of 2001.
Many questionable points in the self-immolation case
On the afternoon of January 23, 2001, two hours after the occurrence of the self-immolation, Xinhua News Agency broadcasted the English version of the news to the world, claiming the self-immolators were Falun Gong practitioners. A week later, the Central Committee Television (CCTV) broadcasted an approximately 90 second-long special program to report the breaking news. It was a public statement given by a self-immolator who drank half a Sprite bottle worth of gasoline but was unharmed. The hatred for Falun Gong was aroused nationwide, so that the persecution of Falun Gong, launched and directed by former CCP General Secretary Jiang Zemin, could continue.
The documentary film "False Fire," which won the 51st Columbus International Movie Television honor prize on November 8, 2003, pointed out the questionable point of the burned girl, Liu Siying, who was able to be interviewed and sang merely 4 days after a large area of her trachea was cut open. A video called "Focal Point Exchange" affirmed that an object thrown by a police that impacted Liu Chunling's forehead caused her to fall down. Beijing Jishuitan hospital did not take any preventive measures when treating the large-scale burn wounds of the "self-immolators" and even allowed the reporter to interview at a close distance. Though Wang Jindong's clothes were scorching, his hairs, which are very flammable, were not on fire; the Sprite bottle full of gasoline between his legs did not combust. The policeman by Wang's side was holding the fire blanket leisurely and swaying it laxly for a long time without a sense of urgency to put out the fire. There are many questionable points such as these.
On August 14, 2001, IED of the United Nations published a statement saying the alleged Tiananmen self-immolation incident was "staged by the government."
The CCP brings up past news to delay their last days of existence
Beginning January 2002, Wang Gongshi, a participant in the investigation of Tiananmen self-immolation and member of the World Organization to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong (WOIPFG) said, "The CCP bringing up the alleged self-immolation incident from four years ago again means two things. First, the CCP has no legal basis for the persecution of Falun Gong. Second, the CCP has felt their end coming."
"That the CCP sustains and maintains its power by fabricating the self-immolation incident to defame Falun Gong and forcing appealers to become self-immolators proves the CCP is a sheer evil specter," Wong Gongshi said. "The CCP takes advantage of its sole control of the media to stir up the alleged self-immolation incident again, this typical deceive-whoever-they-can approach is their attempt of delaying their demise."
Wang Gongshi also said, "The communist party of the Soviet Union dared to publish a rebuttal article to the nine commentaries on the Soviet Union from the same year, but till now, the CCP hasn't produced a rebuttal article to The Epoch Time's "Nine Commentaries on the CCP." The CCP can only maintain its state through the distribution of fake "Nine Commentaries," which shows that there is no one left in the CCP's dynasty and its power is gone."
Police reminds people to collect evidence
Wang Gongshi is not the only one who received telephone harassment in Toronto. Alice from North York and several of her friends from Toronto and New York also received anonymous calls with the same content on Sunday. Alice said, "Without a doubt, this is the CCP's systematic harassment of overseas Chinese people's rights before the New Year. Police are already involved, and we hope all Chinese friends who receive similar calls dial 416-808-2222 and report it to the police."
Toronto police station's liaison officer of the Toronto Chinese community Chen Chubiao told an Epoch Times newspaper reporter, "People who receive similar phone calls must record the time, content of the call, and the telephone number; these are important evidence."
