From January 12 to 14, Hong Kong Falun Gong practitioners will join practitioners around the world to hold press conferences and peaceful appeal to expose the Jiang regime's persecution of Falun Gong practitioners and demand an end to the killing.

Since November 2002, reports of forty-three practitioners being killed in forced labor camps, detention centers, jails, and "Rehab" Centers have been received overseas. Of the 43 cases received, 22 have died since November. The others died before November, but the news was delayed due to the information blockade in China. These practitioners were illegally detained and eventually persecuted to death solely because of their belief in Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance.

Among the 43 cases, 12 occurred in Heilongjiang Province (including two cases from Wanjia forced labor camp of Harbin City, one case from Harbin Police Department Detention Center, Women's Jail of Harbin City, Harbin Rehab Center); 6 cases occurred in Hebei Province.

With incomplete statistics, there are 554 Falun Gong practitioners have been persecuted to death in the persecution initiated by Jiang-Luo regime since July 20, 1999. The details of these deaths have been verified through non-governmental means.
