Falun Gong followers parade in Kaohsiung

Falun Gong followers parade in Kaohsiung

Taipei, May 2 (CNA) Thousands of followers of Falun Gong, a spiritual movement banned in its birthplace of China, staged a parade Saturday in Kaohsiung, southern Taiwan. The marchers, from different chapters of the spiritual movement in Chiayi, Tainan, Kaohsiung, Pingtung, Taitung and Penghu, wound through the streets of the city for more than two hours. Hsiao Yung-ta, a Kaohsiung councilor from the opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), took part in the parade, saying that the Communist Party of China is not afraid of either the ruling Kuomintang, or the DPP, but is afraid of the Falun Gong practitioners, because the virtues of sincerity, kindness and tolerance advocated by the movement runs counter to the cruelty of the communist party, which is why it is so keen to prosecute Falun Gong followers.
