Chinese Government's Severe Violations
Of Falun Gong Practitioners' Human Rights


Chinese government blocks the passage of information in all means, including:

  1. Forcing domestic peoples to be silent by using their dictating power like army and police;
  2. Preventing international media, even those physically in China, from obtaining the first-hand facts;
  3. Spreading lies all over the world after cutting the contact between people and foreign media.
People have risked their lives to get this information out of China. Thus, for some happenings, we may not have exact location and time. All phone lines, email, and Internet web sites in China are closely monitored or cut off. We now reveal to the world a small sample of the faxes and emails that friends and relatives have received from Falun Dafa practitioners.

As early as before July 20th, Falun Gong practitioners had already been harassed, wiretapped, tailed. However, the situation became extremely severe after July 20th and the persecution towards Falun Gong was escalated as shown in the records below. Thus, this report is divided into two parts:

The situation in China is still developing and getting worse by the hour. We call on all kind-hearted people in the world to appeal to the Chinese government to stop these brutal persecution and respect human rights and to allow Chinese citizens the basic right to read the virtuous book and to practice the health enhancing exercises of their choice.

In Changchun, the government is pressing Falun Gong practitioners by appointing their family members as guarantors. Namely, if a practitioner goes to Beijing to appeal, his guarantor will become unemployed or be dismissed from school. One practitioner's daughter who is a second year high school student was appointed as her mother's guarantor. If her mother goes to Beijing to appeal , she will lose her employment opportunity.

I personally witnessed the rough treatment the soldiers and plain clothes policemen gave the practitioners as they pulled, pushed and shoved them violently into police vehicles. One young lady was forcefully shoved into the trunk of a police car. This brutal treatment by the police is illegal even for criminals. I did not see any attempts to resist by practitioners, nor did any of them cry out.
Changchun, Jilin Province
Among the 400 practitioners detained in the Ba-li-bao detention center, most went on hunger strikes, one after another, for periods varying from 3 days to 7 days.

Several days later, the police arrested many practitioners again without any reason. According to solid sources, the government decided to arrest 200 of those who had been on hunger strikes and sentenced them to one-year labor education.

The police had to release some people detained for criminal offenses in order to find enough room to detain Falun Gong practitioners. Falun Gong practitioners are being detained in many places, including Changchun's jail, drug-stopping institute and Ba-li-bao detention center. The exact number is hard to obtain.

Now most of the practitioners detained in the Da-guang detention center are on hunger strikes. As of now (October 25th), it is the 4th day. The police treat them brutally. They are detained in cells all day and are forbidden to go out or to be visited by family members. All their belongings have been confiscated. Currently, their situations in the detention center are quite intolerable.

(... the situation is still developing. Due to the severe blockage of communications networks (telephone/fax/email/web sites), we have no news from the villages and many more other cities where there are significant numbers of Falun Dafa practitioners. All we know is that the Central government has ordered that the whole country forbid the practice of Falun Dafa. People who dare to continue to practice Falun Dafa will be dishonorably dismissed from the Communist Party, from school and from their jobs. All this because Falun Dafa is a traditional, high-level Qigong practice that focuses on Truth, Benevolence and Forbearance and offers people better physical and mental health and has attracted millions of people all over the world are learning and practicing it now.)

This information was collected by some Falun Dafa practitioners in North America.

All kind-hearted people around the world,
please help us.
