False Fire: staged self-immolation at Tiananmen(2/2)

On January 23, 2001, it was reported that five people set themselves on fire in Tiananmen Square, Beijing, China. The state-run Xinhua news agency reported the incident with unusual speed, claiming that the immolators were practitioners of the Falun Gong spiritual practice. Yet evidence shows that this incident was staged, a ploy used to turn public opinion against Falun Gong already persecuted for their beliefs. NGO』s (non-governmental organizations) have found gaping holes in the cover story propagated by Xinhua. They performed frame-by-frame analysis of the official video footage aired repeatedly on TV shortly after the incident, and examined inconsistencies in verbal claims and coverage made by official media and the communist party. The International Education Development testified at the UN in Geneva as long ago as 2001 that 「we have obtained a video of that incident that in our view proves that this event was staged by the government.」 Other Recommended Links: 1.
