Since January this year, Falun Gong practitioners from Stockholm, Sweden have been holding activities every week at three main subway stations downtown to raise awareness of the brutal persecution of the practice in China. “Many people still don't know about this. We should let more people know. It is horrifying,” said a woman who stopped to sign a petition.
Falun Gong practitioners' persistent and peaceful efforts to expose and counteract the ongoing persecution have helped more and more people come to understand the facts. People are now willing to stand up for practitioners, including defense lawyers. "Defending Falun Gong practitioners is in fact safeguarding justice and the rule of law. It's also safeguarding the universal values of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. This is fighting for justice using the law.”
According to information compiled by Minghui.org, the month of January 2017 recorded 137 new cases of Falun Gong practitioners sentenced to prison by the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) court system. Due to the CCP’s information blockade, the number of Falun Gong practitioners who were sentenced cannot always be reported in a timely manner, nor is all the information readily available.
Ms. Wang Cui, a 53-year-old teacher in Henan Province, fell ill after repeated arrests and forced labor for refusing to renounce Falun Gong. Prison authorities denied medical parole and she passed away.
Ms. Lü Yongzhen's family traveled hundreds of miles to pick her up, only to learn that she had been seized by the 610 Office, an extra-legal agency tasked with eradicating Falun Gong and given power to override the judicial system.
