It is reported by Zhang Chen, journalist at that at about 10 o’clock in the morning Falun Gong practitioners demonstrated in the Flushing Street again, which aroused the local Chinese’s strong protest and denunciation. Today more local Chinese gathered than yesterday and they were more excited and indignant than before. In spite of heavy rain they shouted “Long Live China” and other encouraging catchwords. The local Chinese’s spontaneous confrontation with Falun Gong lasted from 10 o’clock in the morning till the rush hour in the afternoon. Until the journalist issued this report the confrontation has lasted for 5 hours and the local Chinese showed no sign of leaving. So it was the strongest protest against Falun Gong during the successive four days.

In view of the large numbers of protesters, the police had to ask Alderman Mr. Liu Chunyi to appeal to the local Chinese to maintain social order.

Just as what they have done in the past three days, Falun Gong diehards intended to relate the earthquake disaster to China’s politics, which angered all the Chinese passers-by. Soon the local Chinese spontaneously gathered behind the protective fence to show their strong protests against Falun Gong. It began to rain heavily in the afternoon, but the local Chinese did not leave at all, instead they continued their protest.

The local Chinese were greatly indignant at Falun Gong’s successive four days’ gathering in Flushing Street. A Chinese elder, with China’s national flag wrapping around him, ran to Falun Gong practitioners, which aroused loud applauses from the crowd of local Chinese. An old Chinese, whose hometown is Sichun, couldn’t help shedding tears and he was eager to say something to the journalist, but he failed to utter a word because his voice was hoarse due to the continuous crying of slogans.

New York Alderman Liu Chunyi came to the spot in the afternoon. He said that everyone had the freedom to express his ideas, but the successive four days’ confrontation has influenced the normal traffic and social order in Flushing. He continued to say that personally speaking, now China was suffering from a big earthquake, so all the Chinese should unite to fight against the disaster and raise funds for the quake-hit areas.

Since last Saturday (May 17), Falun Gong diehards successively appeared on the spot where the Chinese were raising funds for quake victims. Instead of donating any money, they beat gongs and drums to claim that Sichun quake was not simply a natural disaster but it was closely related with China’s government. Such nonsense brought about strong denunciations from each upright Chinese. In the next following three days, Falun Gong went on disturbing fundraising work. The local Chinese went on to protest against Falun Gong’s heartless actions.
