Anti-cult Photo Exhibition Held in HKA three-day "oppose evil cult and uphold civilization" photo exhibition was opened Sunday in Hong Kong, drawing more than 1,000 attendees from political, economic, cultural and religious circles of the local community.
Wang Fengchao, deputy director of the Liaison Office of the Central People's Government in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (SAR), said at the opening ceremony that since its formation in the early 1990s, Falun Gong has led to the death of 1660 practitioners and innocent people, and caused innumerous tragedies.
The Chinese government's ban of the cult from July 1999 has won firm support from people home and abroad, Wang said. Over the past two years, he said, authorities at various levels have been educating Falun Gong followers with patience and care, helping a large number of practitioner abandon the evil cult and return to normal life.
The anti-cult exhibition held in Hong Kong will help local people realize the danger of the evil cult and gain a clearer understanding of the central government's stance and efforts made on the Falun Gong issues, Wang said.
Chuang Shih-ping, chairman of the Hong Kong Culture Association, also stressed the necessity of holding such an anti-cult exhibition in Hong Kong. "It will promote the spirit of science and civilization in the society and thus contribute to the maintenance of Hong Kong's long-term stability and prosperity," he said.
Zhang Guoliang, president of the Hong Kong-based Wen Wei Po newspaper, said the Falun Gong group in Hong Kong has the same evil nature as its inland counterparts. Activities of the Falun Gong group are turning more and more politicized and internationalized, he said.
The SAR government is keeping a close eye on the Falun Gong activities, which is a necessary move to protect the right of Hong Kong, Zhang said. He hoped the exhibition would help more people realize the danger of Falun Gong and voluntarily say no to the cult.
Also present at the opening ceremony were Jiang Enzhu, director of the Liaison Office of the Central People's Government in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (SAR) and Ji Peiding, commissioner of China's Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the HKSAR.
The exhibition was co-sponsored by the Hong Kong Cultural Association and the Hong Kong-based newspaper Wen Wei Po. Some 103 social organizations also joined hands in the preparation for the exhibition.
The photo show is divided into four main parts, namely, Li Hongzhi and Falun Gong, the Danger of the Falun Gong Evil Cult, Eliminate Falun gong Evil Cult and Foster a Cultivated Social Environment, and Evil Cult is a Threat to All the Human Beings.
More than 600 photos were on show at the exhibition to reveal the serious damages caused by Falun Gong as well as to demonstrate the Chinese government's efforts in educating Falun Gong followers.
