法轮功申请参加里士满庆典活动遭拒(中英)
   2009-05-11   凯风网   作者:南怀隐(编译)

  里士满网站Richmond Times-Dispatch5月7日报道,法轮功试图寻找机会在上周六在大里士满会展中心举行的亚裔美国人庆典上出演,但他们遭到了华人社区表演组织者的拒绝,原因是“法轮功组织政治性太强,太具争议性”。

  里士满中文网的记者John Kang说,“法轮功组织认识到美国对多元文化和多样性的关注,他们利用舞蹈演出以抛出他们的反华信息”。

  华人社区表演组织者之一Jaye Li在4月25日写给当地法轮功代表的一封电子邮件中写道:每年一度的亚裔盛典活动“是一项文化交流平台,但法轮功团体不是一个文化组织。它有着很强的政治图谋,不适合代表中国文化。你也许知道,并不是我一个人这么认为”。

  注:里士满为美国弗吉尼亚州首府。

Keeping Falun Gong group offstage at celebration

When Falun Gong practitioners sought the opportunity to do their exercises onstage at this Saturday's Asian-American Celebration at the Greater Richmond Convention Center, they were denied by organizers of the Chinese-community performances for "the Falun Gong group is too political, too controversial, You have a strong agenda," sources from timesdispatch.com on May 7.

John Kang, a member of the Richmond Chinese Network, said the Falun Gong group was too late in seeking to perform in the celebration.

Kang, in a later e-mail, disputed the idea that Falon Gong's exercises are traditional. He said they were created by its founder 30 years ago.

"Falun Gong, recognizing America's interest in multiculturalism and diversity, uses dance performances to promote its anti-China message," he wrote.

In a March 17 e-mail, Jaye Li told Wang that organizers had already selected enough performances. But a subsequent e-mail suggests other factors were at work.

In a March 25 e-mail, Li wrote that the annual Asian event "is intended as a cultural exchange platform and Falun Gong group is not a cultural organization. It has strong political agenda and is not appropriate to represent the Chinese culture. As you may be aware, I am not the only person who feels this way."
