Falun Dafa was introduced to the world 28 years ago, in 1992, and about 100 million people have practiced it. They follow the principles of Falun Dafa, do the five sets of exercises, and experience improved health and uplifted moral character. Impressed by these changes, their family members and friends also became supportive. Such courage and sacrifice during the harsh persecution in turn brings more blessings.
Throughout the turbulent months of 2020, Minghui has persisted in exposing the Chinese Communist Party's persecution in China and its influence abroad, and provides reports on the worldwide efforts to end the persecution. Minghui continues to provide a platform for Dafa practitioners worldwide to share experiences and insights, and offers a place for all to find hope.
Thousands of Innocent Lives—Striving to Become Better Citizens—Killed in the Persecution of Falun Gong
The persecution against Falun Gong, which started in July 1999, has been ongoing for 21 years, and is a tragedy beyond numbers. As China and the world enjoy the holidays and celebrate the upcoming New Year, the surviving families of these deceased practitioners remain grief-stricken, still mourning the loss of their loved ones.
Practitioners held an Information Day activity on Karlsplatz in Munich on December 19. Pedestrians on the plaza learned about the Chinese Communist Party’s persecution of Falun Gong and signed a petition calling for a collective effort in Germany to stop the persecution.
Ms. Sun Lanying, the mother of a Twin Cities, Minnesota resident, was released on December 18, one month after being arrested for her faith in Falun Gong, thanks to efforts by her daughter and a Minnesota state representative.
With 2021 fast approaching Falun Dafa practitioners in Toronto sent New Year greetings to the spiritual discipline’s founder, Master Li Hongzhi. They expressed their profound respect for Master and their determination to follow his teachings and clarify the truth to more people.
