The following is the press release for the Uncompromising Courage art exhibit, which depicts Communist persecution against Falun Gong practitioners, at the Caroline Street Library in Fredericksburg, Virginia this weekend. A few minutes ago I put up a vent on the disturbing rise of anti-anti-Communism among U.S. conservatives, which can be accessed here.
The next News of the Day will be on July 5. In the meantime, Happy Independence Day.
UNCOMPROMISING COURAGE – July 2-3, 2005
THE ART EXHIBIT DEPICTING THE PERSECUTION OF FALUN GONG
On July 20, 1999, the Chinese Communist Party banned the spiritual practice of Falun Gong, and began a brutal crackdown that has killed hundreds, and sent thousands more to jails and labor camps where they have suffered unspeakable torture.
In place of words, there are now works of art depicting the Communist persecution against Falun Gong, and the heroic resistance of those who have refused to submit to Communist brutality. These works of art now comprise the Uncompromising Courage art exhibit.
On the upcoming Fourth of July weekend, as we Americans celebrate our independence and the freedoms that have come with it, let us remember there are millions who must still fight for those freedoms. Pursuant to that, the China e-Lobby hereby invites all who are interested to the Uncompromising Courage exhibit at the Caroline Street Library in Fredericksburg, Virginia. The exhibit will be open from 9AM to 5:30 PM EST on Saturday, July 2 and from 1 to 5:30 PM EST on Sunday, July 3.
The China e-Lobby is an organization dedicated to exposing the abuses of human rights, threats to American security, and attacks on general decency committed by Communist China, and to influencing American policy to ensure these egregious acts do not go unopposed.
