Global Urgent Appeal:
China Orders “Kill Without Mercy”
Lists of Falun Gong Practitioners Who Are to Be Put to Death Being Compiled 

[OTTAWA,TORONTO, VANCOUVER] March 7th, 2002 — China’s state-run television 
program in Changchun was suddenly interrupted by Pro-Falun Gong footage for 
40-50 minutes, reaching hundreds of thousands of viewers on March 5th, 2002.  
The President of China was infuriated by this incident and is said to have 
issued orders: “Kill Without Mercy,” immediately following the event. 
Regions across China are reported to be compiling lists of specific Falun Gong 
practitioners to execute without trial for their spiritual belief, following 
the President’s command.

Incidents of police gun-shooting Falun Gong practitioners have already occurred 
in the past few days, giving rise to the grave urgency of this matter. Falun 
Gong practitioners worldwide urgently appeal to the people of the world, as 
well as all governments and international organizations, to help stop the 
massacre that is about to happen in China.

Falun Gong practitioners in all major Canadian cities including Ottawa, 
Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary will gather in front of the Chinese 
Embassy/Consulates for an all-day appeal that will continue on for the rest of 
the week.

Background Information 
The surprise Changchun broadcast is completely without precedent in China, 
where only the State’s voice may be heard in the media. One of the key 
features of the broadcast was a segment entitled, “Self-immolation or 
Deception?” which presented evidence that the January 2001 immolation in 
Beijing was staged by the PRC government. An English version of the video 
“Self-immolation or Deceit?” is available online at 

 “Jiang’s persecution of Falun Gong survives on an arsenal of lies and 
deceit, and the biggest weapon is the propaganda surrounding the 
self-immolation incident; it’s the most potent and demonizing of the lies” 
said Levi Browde, spokesman for the Falun Dafa Information Center. “And this 
demonstrates exactly why Jiang has reacted with such fury: he’s scared 
because the most terrifying thing for him is that people will find out the 
truth about the self-immolation, which the broadcasts revealed, as well as the 
truth about Falun Gong. He’ll do anything to stop this—even if it means 
murdering his own people.”

The Falun Dafa Information Center has verified details of over 375 deaths since 
the persecution of Falun Gong in China began in 1999. Government officials 
inside China, however, report that the actual death toll is well over 1,600. 
Over 100,000 have been sent to labor camps without trial. www.faluninfo.net
