‘Confidential report reveals how Chinese officials harass activists in Canada’ – National Post

An article in Canada’s National Post about a confidential report submitted to the federal government details how Beijing harasses Chinese activists of all colors in Canada.

“They said if this (critical) story comes out in the Canadian press, then you are responsible for the life of your relatives,” one activist is quoted as saying.

According to the article, “Targets include Canadian representatives of what the Chinese sometimes call the five ‘poisons’: the Uyghur Muslim minority, independence-minded Tibetans, Taiwanese, democracy advocates and, especially, the Falun Gong.’

“Over the last decade or so, city councilors, mayors and other politicians have certainly tried to quash Falun Gong commemorative events or protests, often under pressure from local Chinese consulates.”

The forms of harassment mentioned in this article – be it pressuring elected officials, threatening the families of overseas activists, or sending nutso emails – or the exact same ones the Chinese Communist Party has been targeting Shen Yun the last 13 years.
