Canadian Mother Disappears in China

Toronto, January 23rd - Connie Chipkar, a 61-year-old Mississauga mother has
disappeared in China after appealing for Falun Gong in Beijing?s Tiananmen
Square earlier today. Her son will appeal for his mother?s safe return at a
press conference today.

When: Wednesday January 23, 2002 at 1:00pm

Where: The Sheraton Center Hotel 123 Queen St. West-- The Kent Room, 2nd

Contact: Joel Chipkar 416 709 8678

Ms. Chipkar?s deep concern over the recent escalation of the persecution and
murder of her fellow practitioners brought her to China where she planned to
appeal to the hearts of Chinese citizens in Tiananmen Square.

In her statement, Ms. Chipkar says, "I know Falun Dafa is good. I've practiced
for over 4 years now."

"I appeal to the Chinese citizens. How can you let your beautiful ancient
culture be exterminated? How can you let your hearts be destroyed? What evil
will our children suffer if Truthfulness ?Compassion-Tolerance is exterminated
and forbidden from their little hearts? Will you leave them with nothing?"

"We are not on this earth for man to torture other men. It must be stopped.
Let everyone know we Canadians support good, peaceful people. I join my fellow
practitioners to stand up to protect Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance" not
only for Falun Gong practitioners in China but for everyone in the whole

Her son Joel Chipkar appealed in Beijing with another 36 western Falun Gong
practitioners from over 10 countries last November. The Canadian Embassy and
Foreign Affairs have been contacted.

Background Info

Falun Gong is a cultivation practice that focuses on moral upgrade. Falun Gong
was supported and awarded by the Chinese government and media for years until
its unprecedented popularity scared the president of China.

Since the brutal crackdown on Falun Gong in 1999 the Chinese president has
pumped destructive lies and propaganda around the world to justify his brutal
crackdown. His manipulation and brainwashing from mass media and his rule of
law that "No means are too excessive to exterminate Falun Gong," has resulted
in the murder of hundreds of men women and children and the torture and
defamation of millions. In the last 20 days over 30 death cases have leaked
from China.

For the past 21/2 years the peaceful appeals and determined hearts of Falun
Gong practitioners have won support and respect from millions of citizens and
governments around the world. The European Parliament and The United States
Government have passed resolutions condemning China on its persecution of
Falun Gong. Over 600 proclamations of support have been awarded from Mayors
across North America as Falun Gong practitioners continue to stand to
peacefully protect truth and goodness for their families and for society.
