FLUSHING, New York City—Alleged henchmen of the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) attacked a Falun Gong practitioner again on September 10. A couple beat a Falun Gong practitioner who is a New Tang Dynasty TV (NTDTV) reporter working on the scene. They took the reporter's press credential and damaged the camcorder at just past 2 p.m. The police arrested the couple, and as of the time this report was drafted, they are still detained at the 109th Precinct.
At about 2 p.m.on September 10, a pro-CCP crowd gathered around the intersection of Main and Maple in Flushing, spreading out hate propaganda against Falun Gong. A lady nearby described to people how her camera was thrown to the ground by Li Huahong, an alleged female agent of the CCP. Someone also attacked NTDTV reporter Zhu Jiang from behind while she was interviewing and filming the lady.
Attacked During Interview
Per Zhu Jiang's report, she discovered the attackers work as a couple when she turned around. They harassed her and attempted to steal her camcorder, causing damaged to the attached microphone. When she was trying to film more evidence, the couple pushed her to the ground, beat her and took her press credential. In the meantime, the couple lied to onlookers saying Zhu beat them with her camcorder, and for this reason they took her press credential.
When the police arrived, the couple still had the press credential that they grabbed from Zhu, which was issued by the New York Police Department. The police then arrested the two. After a careful investigation and checking Zhu’s recorded video, the police formally arrested the two.
Assailants Are Victims of Chinese Propaganda
Zhu said that she doesn't know the couple at all. The only possible explanation for the attack would be the CCP's hateful propaganda against Falun Gong in the United States. As a Falun Gong practitioner, Zhu called for people from all walks of life help stop the propaganda. “These CCP stooges are also victim’s of the propaganda. The incitement of Chinese people has not stopped, therefore the violence and attacks will continue,” Zhu said.
