Brief Summary of What Happened to Falun Gong in China after July 20

Hundreds of volunteer coordinators were arrested in their homes during the early morning hours on July 20th.

Tens of thousands of practitioners were arbitrarily detained, beaten, and punished for appealing to the government agencies for releasing the arrested.

Chinese government on July 22nd banned Falun Gong. Tens of millions of Chinese civilians are deprived of their basic human rights to practice a health improving exercise and to read a virtuous book.

Falun Gong books and videos have been confiscated, pulped and burned.

The state propaganda machine intensified the campaign to defame Falun Dafa with fabricated stories and false accusations nation-wide for nearly two months.

Falun Dafa practitioners in China are forced to choose between practicing Falun Dafa and maintaining their party memberships, jobs, education, and pensions.

Practitioners were also forced to make false statements about the practice and to swear that they will stop cultivating.

Practitioners who would not renounce Falun Dafa have lost their jobs and means of providing for themselves and their families.

The arrested volunteer coordinators, and those who refuse to denounce Falun Dafa, will be prosecuted and could face severe jail terms.

Lawyers are ordered not to represent Falun Dafa practitioners and to conform to the government's policy (that is, involvement in any Falun Dafa activities is illegal).

China issued an international arrest order for Master. Li, which Interpol refused to enforce.

Practitioners who are found continuing practice will be detained and severely tortured.
