From the Caucasus to Siberia, in the Far East and in the south, Russian Falun Dafa practitioners did the exercises together, danced and sang, and played the waist drums in honor of World Falun Dafa Day. One event organizer said their performances were “truly wonderful.” “This is so special and so amazing!” exclaimed a woman who was moved to tears as Falun Dafa practitioners passed by her in their golden outfits.
April 25 was the 20th anniversary of Falun Gong practitioners' peaceful gathering outside the National Appeals Office in Beijing in 1999 to seek the release of several practitioners unjustly arrested days before. It has become a politically sensitive date for the communist regime, and police often arrest practitioners on a large scale around this time every year. Several group arrests were reported across China this April, and two practitioners died as a result of police harassment.
A 35-year-old woman died hours after she was rushed to a hospital from the forced labor camp where she was detained for her faith in Falun Gong. Her family's requests to claim her remains have been repeatedly denied for the past 18 years because they have refused to comply with the authorities' stance that she died of natural causes.
An elderly mother was dealt another blow when her middle son died on medical parole on May 14, 2019. Her oldest son died eight years ago after being released from prison, and her younger son is still serving time. All three brothers were targeted because they refused to renounce Falun Gong.
After years of suffering for refusing to renounce his faith in Falun Gong, a 46 year-old practitioner died on May 17, 2019. He had been repeatedly detained and harassed by his employer and brutally tortured during his two-year imprisonment.
77 members of the Minnesota House and Senate, two of whom are practicing physicians, signed official letters to the Minnesota Medical Association expressing concern over forced organ harvesting in China.
