I was honoured to be invited to speak at the 21st Falun Dafa Rally at Parliament House, WA on 19 July 2020 with esteemed speakers Augusto ZimmermannAndrea Tokaji and the Rev. Peter Abetz. Here is a summary of my speech:
Thank you Mark for the introduction and also thank you to Mr. Albert Lin, President of the WA branch of Falun Dafa Association of Australia Inc. for the invitation to speak today. I am truly honoured and humbled to speak today especially amongst a panel of esteemed speakers who have fought for human rights for many years.
A year has passed quickly since I last spoke and it’s great to see so many again today who are “survivors”.
I would like to acknowledge the following who are here today:
Mr. John Tsu, JP, President of the Chinese Community Centre of WA Inc.
Mr. John Wong, Chief representative of the Kuomintang (KMT) in WA and
Mr. Richard Lue, Founder and CEO of the Perth Anti-CCP Association.
Over the last 12 months the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has continued to wage war on Australians. The CCP has upped the ante and West Australians should be very, very scared.
This CCP’s Doctrine of “Three Warfares” was created by the Beijing Central Military Commission in 2003. It’s basically unrestricted warfare that consist of:
1, Public opinion warfare – to project positive images of the CCP domestically in China and abroad,
2, Psychological warfare – to support positive civilian opinions and crush negative views, and
3, Legal warfare – to use national and international law to prop up the CCP.
I will talk about the four scary incidences that occurred in WA since I last spoke a year ago:
1, 26 July 2019 – Data loss incident at the University of Western Australia (UWA) where laptops were stolen that contained student and alumni information. As many of you know, UWA is WA’s premier university and tertiary institution. Many of WA’s top lawyers, judges, bureaucrats, policy makers attended UWA and their details could be in the hands of a hostile enemy who could use it as leverage. For example, if any of these people were once accused of cheating during exams or any complaints of sexual harassment during their time at University, this information could be used as leverage to blackmail and gain an advantage,
2, 21 April 2020 – Hacking of WA’s only newspaper, The West Australian’s subscriber and competition entrants. Around half a million West Australian’s subscribe or read The West Australian. “Phishing” emails were used by hackers to lure them to click on malicious code. Once again this malicious act could be used as leverage to blackmail and gain an advantage,
3, 8 May 2020 – Hacking of the WA Premier Mark McGowan’s office. This speaks volumes as he is the top policy maker in WA and an affront to the parliament building that is behind me. This malicious act could be used to blackmail the highest law maker of WA, and
4, 3 February 2020 – Denial of the use of a government theatre facility for a performance by the world renowned Shen Yun Dance Troupe. As mentioned by an earlier speaker, the use of a government theatre (His Majesty’s Theatre) was denied by the State Theatre Trust which is a WA Government body when Shen Yun tried to rent it for a theatre performance after pressure was applied by the Chinese Consul General who is the chief CCP representative in WA. Since when does a foreign government have a right to determine who uses a WA taxpayer funded facility? This is a disgrace and heads should roll.
Despite this war which all West Australians should fear, there were four positive incidences that should give us hope that the CCP can be defeated especially here in WA:
1, 19 October 2019 – Expose of the influence of the CCP/United Front Works Department in WA long established cultural institution The Chung Wah Association in an article by myself titled “The Battle of Balcatta”. Many thanks to all the many contributors and your ongoing support, https://www.facebook.com/tshung.chang.9/posts/729007550948812
2, 9 December 2019 – The successful screening of the award-winning documentary “Letter from Masanjia” despite many obstacles. I was fortunate to be on a panel with Madam Tian who is in the audience today. She is one of the most courageous women I have ever met and works tireless to expose the atrocities that she experienced. I commend you for all that you do,
3, 4 July 2020 – The inaugural public June 4th rally was held at parliament house in Perth. Many West Australians found the courage to come out for the first time to commemorate this event. At this event, I caught two Chinese Consuls Mr. Yifan He and Madam Bin Xu plus their driver secretly filming and recording the speeches. Amongst the speakers were those from Hong Kong who asked not to be filmed as they feared their family and loved ones could face persecution. True to their colours, they were caught red handed covertly filming right over there. When I caught them, they started running to their car in a carpark up on the hill. This is what the CCP does. They openly spy on their own citizens abroad and use this as leverage against their family and loved ones. Why do they also spy on Australian citizens like myself? Is it to compile an assassination list when WA goes the way of Victoria?
4, 19 July 2020 – The successful Falun Dafa rally today. This event goes from strength to strength and all credit to the organisers for making this a very well-run event. Glad to see so many of you despite the pandemic. Well done organisers and attendees.
I leave you today with a call for action for two crucial issues of the utmost importance to maintaining our freedom:
1, There is no room in Australia for Communist Chinese spies. Every act of espionage against Australians or residents of Australia which includes our guest from Hong Kong must be punished by expulsion. If the Prime Minister fails to expel these spies, he should resign immediately.
2, I also call on all politicians in the parliament behind us and all those around Australia to resign immediately if they have taken donations from the CCP.
