"Self-immolation" in Tiananmen Square
Since his brutal crackdown on Falun Gong, Jiang Zemin has resorted to various despicable means to fabricate and spread rumors to slander Falun Gong. On the surface, his suppression group spread rumors and deceived the public with fabrications. For instance, fabricating the incident of a mentally ill patient who cut open his stomach to that of a Falun Gong practitioner who "cut open his stomach to look for a Falun"; A person from Heilongjiang Province who killed his parents was fabricated to that of a Falun Gong practitioner; The fact that a Falun Gong practitioner from Hebei Province happened to fall into a small river while riding a bicycle, was falsely reported by the CCTV [Chinese Central TV Station] as "jumping into the river to commit suicide". While in secret, Jiang Zemin's group did various vicious disreputable deeds. For instance, secretly plotting the murders of Falun Gong practitioners and tricking them into going to Xiangshan Park [a mountain park in Beijing suburb], in an attempt to create a case of "Falun Gong practitioners' mass suicide in Xiangshan Park", so that they could justify their unlawful allegation that brands Falun Gong as XX [slanderous words omitted out of respect]; beating a practitioner to death and throwing him out of a building was fabricated as "committing suicide by jumping from a building"; Torturing practitioners to death in prison was also reported as "committing suicide"; ......
Recently, Jiang Zemin blatantly instigated his thugs to persecute Falun Gong practitioners: "if the practitioners are beaten to death, simply claim that they committed suicide". How malicious and violent he is! Obviously, Jiang Zemin's real intention is to have practitioners killed, and then label these deaths as "committing suicide", so that he could justify his bloody persecution of Falun Gong practitioners.
The Chinese Lunar New Year's Eve was approaching, Jiang Zemin had long been fearing this, for on every special occasion, there are always Falun Gong practitioners going to Tiananmen Square to appeal by unfurling banners and practicing exercises. It is what Jiang Zemin is most afraid of. What makes Jiang Zemin even more frightened is the fact that the founder of Falun Gong has been nominated for the 2001 Nobel Peace Prize. Once nominated, won't Jiang Zemin be officially and shamefully regarded by the people around the world as "the biggest murderer and persecutor of peace of mankind" in history? Therefore, how could he prevent Falun Gong practitioners from exposing his brutal persecution to the world? How could he tarnish the founder of Falun Gong who had been nominated [as a candidate for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2001]? These thoughts compelled Jiang Zemin to concoct and spread rumors, one after another, to defame Falun Gong. After he came to the end of his wits, Jiang Zemin made his last try ------ orchestrate the drama of "self-immolation".
This drama of "self-immolation" could kill three birds with one stone: one is that they could close down the Square after the "self-immolation incident" so that Falun Gong practitioners could not enter the Square to appeal; another would be to further tarnish Falun Gong and obstruct the founder of Falun Gong from winning the Nobel Peace Prize; The third role is to fulfill his dream of "eliminating Falun Gong" by utilizing public opinion to stir up the hatred of the general public so that he could persecute Falun Gong at will and on a large scale.
As known, on every important occasion, in order to prevent Falun Gong practitioners from appealing, there are always plainclothes police, special agents and policemen deployed in Tiananmen Square. There are layers and layers of check points at each transportation entry into Beijing to cross-examine, body search and force people to curse Falun Gong ...... Entering Tiananmen Square is like passing through the gate to hell. How could it be so coincidental that seven people carrying bottles of gasoline passed through those check points so easily? Did those policemen and plainclothes agents who are fed the blood of the people become idiots at the time? Usually, no sooner do Falun Gong practitioners sit on the ground and try crossing their legs in the double lotus position, than the police would surround them like and beat them. How could the police become so blind that day and take no notice of all these people who were pouring gasoline on their bodies and chanting slogans?
In Mr. Wang Lixiong's book Huang Huo [Yellow Disaster] which The Party has paid special attention to, he depicted a fatally ill woman that was hired at a high price to shout out "Restore Justice to the June 4th Incident" [the 1989 massacre in Tiananmen Square] while setting herself ablaze in Tiananmen Square, so that the Chinese authorities could find excuses for their brutal suppression of this incident. While this terminally ill woman set fire to herself, it just "so happened" that a foreign reporter was at the scene and videotaped the incident. It also just "so happened" that there was a foreign news reporter --- a reporter from CNN videotaping the whole process of the "self-immolation" in Tiananmen Square on January 23, 2001. But it was a pity that the police confiscated his film. If it was really a self-immolation by Falun Gong practitioners, wasn't this how Jiang Zemin had planned to let CNN spread the news to the whole world? But why then was the film confiscated? Jiang Zemin's group did a good job comparing notes with the Public Security Minister from Huang Huo [Yellow Disaster].
Let's analyze the tactics of Jiang Zemin's group:
Allow the foreign reporter who was unknown to the case to videotape the incident at the scene, but the film had to be confiscated at first. If the drama of 'self-immolation' turned out to be without flaws, the film would be returned to CNN. Thus, with the Xinhua News Agency's and CNN's double coverage, people of the world would have no reason to not believe it; if the hired selfimmolators made some "mistakes" like the woman in Huang Huo did while setting herself on fire, it would be tragic for the conspirators. If CNN exposed this to the world, Jiang Zemin's fraudulent group would collapse immediately! It seems that however well an "actor" performs, it is still a drama. The fake can never become the genuine. After five hours of meticulous scrutiny, it was found that the film had some flaws that were hard to cover up! Therefore, the CNN reporter lost the chance to make front-page news, because he is unlike CCTV reporters who always strictly keep "state secrets" and will randomly cut and compile the facts and information according to the needs of Chinese authorities. CNN would not be of any help in this aspect, but yet the framing-up of Falun Gong had to be carried out. This is why the whole world could only hear the solo performance from China's official Xinhua News Agency five hours after the "self-immolation" incident.
