19-08-2004 16:56Shenzhen -- A 35-year-old Falun Gong disciple was killed by her fellow practitioners for trying to leave the cult earlier this year, local police revealed this week.
Wei Zhihua was slain in February by more than 10 Falun Gong followers, including her husband Lan Shaowei, police say. The vicious mob believed her mind was infected with evil and needed to be cured through the doctrines found in Falun Gong inventor Li Hongzhi's books.

Dear friends of peace and justice all over our world,
The U.S. wants to kill Moktada al-Sadr now! This is because they well understand that if a poll were taken, Sadr would be shown to be the hero the Iraqi people would choose. Of course, he has stood up to the hated invaders like no other figure in that inflamed nation. He has put his life on the line, told the truth, and followed his principles. That is the kind of leader the facists will never tolerate.
And right now the propagandists and spinmasters are working double time trying to hide this truth from the U.S. public, (CNN, ABC, NPR, CBS, etc.) as they work to eliminate this man. If this understanding were to sink in to the public mind, the erosion of support for this insane neocon war effort could be dramatic.
Please share this perspective with as many others as possible. Contact elected officials and representatives where ever you are and demand that they put pressure on the U.S. military to back off this legitimate Iraqi leader. This is an urgent request. There may not be much time. We can stop this war and change the world if we act! jamie
