The persecution of Falun Gong in China is staggering in its scope, and practitioners in every corner of the country have been affected. On a daily basis they continue to face the threat of arrest, torture, and death.

The following articles, compilations of different statistics about the persecution in China, give a sense of the scope and severity of the situation.
