(Minghui.org) Seventeen years ago Chinese leader Jiang Zemin began the suppression of Falun Gong, which left tens of millions of innocent Falun Gong practitioners, along with their family members, in chill and gloom.
At least 3,900 practitioners have lost their lives due to being tortured while in police custody, according to information published on the Minghui website. Many more have been detained, imprisoned, tortured, subjected to forced labor, or even become victims of forced organ harvesting.
Zhou Yongkang and a number of other key perpetrators from Jiang's regime who participated in the persecution, have been taken down in the recent years, with various charges. For Jiang himself, more than 200,000 criminal complaints have been filed since May of last year, calling for holding him responsible for the crimes.
As 2016 begins, posters are being seen in China that support the lawsuits. The posters have appeared in Hebei Province, Heilongjiang Province, Shandong Province, Liaoning Province, Jilin Province, Hubei Province, Guangdong Province, Inner Mongolia, and Beijing.
