CCP Incites Flushing Violence

FLUSHING, New York City—A pro-Chinese Communist Party (CCP) group launched a further attack on volunteers in Flushing on Oct. 12., marking five months of violence allegedly backed by the Chinese Embassy. Volunteers, largely Falun Gong practitioners, run a service center near Golden Market on Main Street, Flushing for Chinese people wanting to renounce their affiliation to the communist regime.

Pro-communist media was present at the latest attack, also suggesting the attack, like others, was premeditated and organised. According to eye witnesses, local Chinese acted out in a violent fashion toward Falun Gong practitioners, then lied to police in an attempt to blame the practitioners for the fracas.

Earlier in the day someone had warned volunteers at the Quit the CCP Service Center that pro-communist Chinese were going to hire phony witnesses to frame Falun Gong practitioners.

One witness named Liu Shubing said, “I left the library and came to Golden Market at around 3:30pm and I saw a woman in a wheelchair cursing in the street. She cursed and bullied a lady from one end of the street to the other.”

Liu continued, “The wheelchair-bound woman shouted, ‘I’m not going to live much longer anyway and I don’t want to live anymore. I’m not afraid of anything. You just go ahead and call the police. If you have the nerve to call the police, just go ahead. I’m not scared. Go ahead! Go ahead! Go ahead!’”

The woman in the wheelchair had frequented Main Street often to curse Falun Gong practitioners at the Service Center and on Sunday she was seen harassing and attacking Falun Gong practitioners for about an hour.

Wheelchair-Bound Woman Stands up to Turn over the Table

Falun Gong practitioner Zhang Derong was chased and cursed by the wheelchair-bound woman. She said that the woman, “has been showing up to harass Falun Gong practitioners since May 17, 2008. She has been using very foul language to insult practitioners. She acted up whenever she saw me and she follows me everywhere I go.”

Video footage shows that the wheelchair-bound woman cursed and threw materials from the table to the ground several times, then stood up and turned over the table as she cursed obscene words.

Ms. Zhang said that the woman and another male accomplice were very cruel. “The two of them attacked me from the front and behind, hitting me with our materials, so I had to retreat back. Another man came from my behind and attempted to strike me. I was not hurt because I was quick enough to avoid his attack.”

Flushing Democratic District Leader Flores Also Attacked

A similar incident also happened to Flushing Democratic District Leader Martha Flores-Vazquez on October 4. Ms. Flores-Vazquez held a community forum in Flushing on Oct. 7. to publicize the incident.

Some pro-communist Chinese thought District Leader Flores was a Falun Gong practitioner when she was in Flushing on Oct. 4 and they immediately started cursing her and accusing her of turning over their table.

The pro-communist Chinese later claimed that it was a misunderstanding because they had mistaken her for a Falun Gong practitioner, to which Ms. Flores-Vazquez responded, “Would you have the right to treat me this way if I were a Falun Gong practitioner?”

Thorn in the CCP's Side

David Gao, the director for the Global Service Center for Quitting the CCP, told the Epoch Times that October is the National Grievance Month. The CCP celebrates its anniversary in China during the month of October. He said an increased number of people have withdrawn from the CCP through the Global Service Center for Quitting the CCP in Flushing.

So far the Epoch Times reported that close to 45 million have withdrawn from the CCP. Recently, the tables set up by the local service center for quitting the CCP on Main Street, Flushing, have also received more requests from people wanting to quit the CCP.

He said the service is a thorn in the side of the CCP and the attacks in Flushing show that the CCP is getting weaker and helpless. The Global Service Center for Quitting the CCP has not only increased service sites in the metropolitan New York area but also in different areas around the world. Gao says that the CCP is destined to collapse.
