Falun Gong practitioners' protest

In the last three months, the CCP used the security of the Olympics as an excuse and arrested hundreds of Falun Gong practitioners all over the country. From last December to now, 1,878 arrests have been confirmed, and there has been a noted increase in death cases.

The persecution of Falun Gong has lasted for nine years. According to Professor Manfred Nowak, the UN Special Rapporteur on Torture, 66% of torture and other cases of cruelty in China in 2006 were conducted against Falun Gong practitioners.

Falun Gong practitioners from Western Australia call upon the international community to help stop the persecution.
