Horrific Persecution of Falun Dafa practitioners in China

In 1998 Falun Gong followers numbered some 70 million persons in China. They even had a TV program aired on China's own state-run network watched by over 100 million viewers. Falun Gong was attracting people from all walks of life, from farmers to university professors, from cultural elites to ranking military and police officers. Even family members of the CCP’s central politburo. Facing its growing influence, former CCP leader Jiang Zemin personally planned, launched, and executed control over the campaign to eliminate Falun Gong. Twenty years later the persecution is still ongoing with increasing severity.


Repression against Falun GongHORRIFIC PERSECUTION OF FALUN DAFA PRACTITIONERS IN CHINA

Falun Dafa (or Great Law) –also known as Falun Gong– is an ancient Buddhist meditation system made public by Master Li Hongzhi. It is based on the characteristics of the universe - truthfulness, compassion and forbearance. It cultivates both mind and body. The main focus of cultivation is on developing virtue by perfecting the quality of one's character, thus lifting the constraints to reaching tranquility and accelerating spiritual progress.

Falun Dafa practitioners do not strike back when hit, nor do they talk back when insulted. But we must speak out to raise awareness about the current persecution that Falun Dafa is subject to in its country of origin - China.

Un grave ataque a la libertad religiosa … ¡en Finlandia!

ÚLTIMA HORA: AL FIN TRIUNFÓ LA JUSTICIA Y LA CORDURA

El Tribunal de Helsinki absuelve a Räsänen

Marzo 31.– La justicia finlandesa desestimó todos los cargos, entre ellos la acusación de delito de incitación al odio hacia homosexuales. El pastor luterano Juhana Pohjola también ha sido absuelto.

 

 

 

 

 

¡Las creencias cristianas no son delito de odio!

Päivi RäsänenPäivi RäsänenLa parlamentaria finlandesa, Päivi Räsänen está enfrentando un ataque legal que pudiera desembocar en una sentencia de cárcel por tuitear un versículo de la Biblia y expresar sus sinceras creencias cristianas.

Simplemente porque Räsänen expresó públicamente sus creencias sinceras, la policía inició una investigación ¡y la sometió a un interrogatorio de cuatro horas! Räsänen se enfrenta ahora a una pena máxima de dos años de prisión por el llamado delito de "agitación étnica."

Todo comenzó en junio de 2019 cuando la junta eclesiástica de la Iglesia

Añada su nombre: Exija que se retiren inmediatamente los tres cargos penales por "incitación al odio" contra la diputada finlandesa Päivi Räsänen. Expresar las creencias profundas que uno tiene en la Biblia no debería llevar a un castigo de cárcel que equivale a una cruel persecución religiosa. Por favor, haga clic aquí para ver el mensaje de Päivi Räsänen, y añade tu nombre a la petición que exige la retirada inmediata de los tres cargos penales por "incitación al odio".

Evangélica Luterana de Finlandia anunció su colaboración oficial con el evento LGBT "Pride 2019". Räsänen cuestionó a la dirección de su iglesia por esta decisión en las redes sociales, adjuntando una imagen de un pasaje bíblico.

La fiscalía también ha sacado a relucir una segunda acusación, un folleto que escribió en 2004: "Hombre y mujer los creó - Las relaciones homosexuales desafían el concepto cristiano de humanidad".

A pesar de enfrentarse a la cárcel y a la continua persecución, Päivi ha demostrado una fuerza indomable:

Un llamado para humanizar la tecnología médica

... la hiperespecialización que caracteriza a toda la investigación científica contemporánea ya ha mostrado claramente sus límites...»

La deshumanizante hiperespecialización tecnológicaLa deshumanizante hiperespecialización tecnológica Nov.21.“La pandemia (de COVID-19) ha revelado nítidamente cómo la interconectividad global, que es parte de toda experiencia humana se ha hecho particularmente visible en el sector de la sanidad […]; que la salud del acaudalado e híper-tecnológico Occidente depende de las influencias provenientes de todo el planeta”; y que “incluso ahora, cuando ya presenciamos los primeros frutos de descubrimientos científicos excepcionales e inimaginables hasta hace poco, aún debemos luchar para contener la propagación del coronavirus”.

Estas reflexiones forman parte del discurso inaugural del Arzobispo Vincenzo Paglia, presidente de la Pontificia Academia para la Vida del Vaticano. Esta intervención medular la presentó el 15 de octubre pasado en Punta Cana, República Dominicana, ante una audiencia conformada por alrededor de 500 médicos reunidos durante el simposio anual de SOMOS Community Care, que les ofrece créditos curriculares de educación continua a los participantes.

Aleppo, Nov. 17 (DP.net).– Under the boot of a cruel dictator, persecuted by Islamic extremists and terrorists bent on eradicating every vestige of Christianity in Syria, the Franciscan One of many churches destroyed by the war and terrorismOne of many churches destroyed by the war and terrorismmissionaries stoically and heroically persist in their charitable mission in such an inhospitable environment. Nevertheless, they are not limited to extending a brotherly hand to Christians but also to Muslims and to those dispossessed of any other religion who have fallen into utter misery as a result of the war and terrorism.

These friars have stayed behind and continue to serve the refugees.

Petition to John Kerry on COP26 about Tibet's Environment exploitation

Mr. John Kerry
Special Presidential Envoy for Climate
U.S. Department of State
2201 C Street NW, Room 2206
Washington, DC 20520-2204

Dear Sir,

As you represent the United States at the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) and lead efforts to commit to urgent climate action, please make saving Tibet's environment and stopping the humanitarian crisis in Tibet one of your top priorities.

China's reckless and unchecked exploitation of Tibet's natural resources, through uncontrolled development, damming, logging and mining, is destroying the ecosystem in the whole region. The Chinese government is also using its environmental policy as a weapon of oppression –forcing Tibetan nomads off their lands and imperiling water supplies for nearly 2 billion people across Asia– silencing by force any Tibetan who speaks out.

As you work with other world leaders to achieve a primary goal of the conference, which is "adapting to protect communities and natural habitats", Tibet cannot be forgotten within this task.

Please, speak up for the people of Tibet and pressure the Chinese government to stop exploiting Tibet's environment.

Thank you,

[Signed]

Oct.27 (DP.net).– China's reckless environmental policies are fueling a humanitarian crisis in Tibet and a climate catastrophe worldwide. Tibetans have been devoted stewards of their unique environment for centuries. Their experience protecting grasslands, rivers, forests and mountains would be a great help in saving Tibet's environment and contribute to the World's efforts to contain the ravages of climate change.

However, the Chinese Communist Party excludes Tibetans from environmental policy decisions. Even worse, Tibetans who speak out against the damming and diversion of rivers or rampant logging and mining are constantly being silenced and sentenced to long prison terms. Indeed, this China's destructive environmental policies imperil people far beyond Tibet.

It is a fact that six of the world's major rivers originate in Tibet. Nearly 2 billion people across Asia depend on Tibet's rivers for their water and irrigation. However, massive dams already in place –and dozens more set for construction– enable the Chinese government to turn life-sustaining water into a weapon against people in Tibet and throughout the region.
