Falun Gong followers rally in Japan

YOKOHAMA Some 200 followers of the Falun Gong spiritual movement rallied in Japan Sunday, accusing former Chinese president Jiang Zemin of massacre charges.

They made demonstrations in a park in this port city southwest of Tokyo on Sunday and held a mock trial for Jiang, finding him guilty of unfair prosecution of the movement and torturing hundreds of members to death.

They then march through streets, with one of their banners reading: “Bring Chinese Dictator Jiang Zemin to Justice!”

Falun Gong says its followers practise meditation to improve their physical and mental wellbeing, but Beijing brands the group a dangerous cult.

China banned the Falun Gong four years ago after some 10,000 followers of the group surrounded the Communist Party leadership compound in central Beijing to protest a government crack-down.
