The year 2017 marked the 25th anniversary of Falun Dafa's introduction to the public, a year when over 10,000 practitioners gathered in New York City for a rally, parade, and conference. Tens of thousands of greetings were received by the Minghui website from practitioners and non-practitioners alike, extolling the benefits of the practice. Inside China, however, the suppression continues for the 18th year.
In Liaoning Province, China, a provincial-level policy of financial incentives for prisons to force Falun Gong practitioners to renounce their belief has led to severe injury and deaths of practitioners in detention.
Minghui Report: 25 More Lives Lost in Persecution of Falun Gong in Second Half of 2017, Bringing Total for Year to 42
Seven practitioners died in custody while imprisoned or waiting to be indicted. The remaining 18 passed away after they were released. Their prison terms ranged from 1.5 to 10 years. One practitioner, Mr. Huang Guodong from Heilongjiang Province, was tortured for ten years during his imprisonment. Due to the suppression of information in China, the actual death toll is likely higher.
Practitioners were invited to teach the exercises to three seventh-grade classes in the public school system. Over 70 students and teachers attended.
