NYC – Protests Challenging Communist China President Hu Jintao

By R.E.A.L. Organization • on September 23, 2009

In NYC, Students for a Free Tibet (SFT), Falun Gong, and others have been protesting  the arrival of China’s President Hu Jintao in New York City this week.  We were able to meet with one of the Falun Gong protesters at one of the NYC protests on Tuesday September 22, who shared their story of oppression and denial of human rights at the hands of the Communist Chinese regime.  We share and support the cause of the Falun Gong in seeking the universal human rights that the Falun Gong and all human beings deserve.

The SFT has protests scheduled at the NYC’s UN from 10 AM to 2 PM on Wednesday, September 23 (see below) and from 8 to 10 AM at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel.
