Cases of Falun Gong Practitioners Being Persecuted in Yunnan Province
(Clearwisdom.net) In view of the establishment of "the Coalition to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong in China (CIPFG)" and the shortage of detailed information collected by the Clearwisdom website from different regions in China, we hereby wish to provide more information about the persecution, and send it to Clearwisdom as a supplement. We hope that this will be of some help in enlarging the database of "persecution cases" in our region as well as the "list of evil personnel." We hope to provide more information and to help make it more accessible for indexing.
