Shen Yun Performing Arts launched its 2017 World Tour just before Christmas with performances in Detroit, Cincinnati, and Oklahoma City. They are currently performing in Texas, where additional seating had to be opened up to meet the demand. “I was extremely impressed... It was spectacular,” said a Houston audience member. “It was very enlightening.”
In a trial for two practitioners accused of distributing Falun Gong materials, their defense attorney read from a Falun Gong publication which was evidence in the case, about how a man tried to be a good person after he started practicing. The judge was asked how this could be unlawful. Despite their constitutional rights of speech and belief, the two practitioners were sentenced to 3-year prison terms.
Ms. Dong Yuying has lived an ongoing nightmare of arrests, incarceration and torture for upholding her belief. She recently filed a criminal complaint against former dictator Jiang Zemin for initiating this persecution that has devastated an untold number of law-abiding citizens. Her account of the torture and abuse that she has suffered provides a window into the brutal injustice that many people in China are still experiencing today.
A practitioner comes home from forced labor camp to find her family and career in shambles, but is able to overcome these tribulations by looking within and letting go of her attachments.
After his arrest last spring, six U.S. Representatives wrote a letter calling for the release of Mr. Li Dang and other imprisoned Falun Gong practitioners. Mr. Li's recent trial adjourned without a verdict.
After openly acknowledging a lack of evidence and promising a second hearing, a judge reverses course and hands out a four-year sentence to a Falun Gong practitioner without further court proceedings.
