Falun Gong to sue the Peoples Republic of Wellington

Falun Gong takes on Wellington City Council – 31 Oct 2007 – NZ Herald: New Zealand National news

Chinese spiritual group Falun Gong is taking Wellington City Council to court after being refused permission to be involved in cultural events in the capital.

Falun Gong says the organisers of Wellington’s Cuba Street Carnival and Chinese New Year Parade allowed its brass band and dancers to take part.

However, the council overturned those decisions, labelling Falun Gong a political group and saying it could not join in the festivities. WTF, can’t participate in parades because you are a political group!!! I hope no Unions took part in the march.

What next? Not being able to speak on the street because you don’t agree with the government…oh wait…they are trying that one on right now.
