Government Actions Help Persecuted Believers

Since the earliest days of the Chinese Communist Party’s campaign against Falun Gong, foreign governments and world leaders have spoken out in support of Falun Gong and called for an end to the brutal persecution meted out against millions of practitioners in China.

Alongside public statements, parliamentary speeches, and sympathetic comments at rallies, governments and their representatives in North America, Europe, and beyond have taken a number of concrete actions, including:

  • Writing letters to Chinese officials urging the release of individual prisoners
  • Inviting Falun Gong victims of torture and experts to testify at hearings related to human rights in China
  • Providing asylum to Falun Gong refugees fleeing persecution
  • Passing resolutions condemning the persecution and adjusting government policy to prevent international complicity in abuses like torture and organ harvesting

These measures have saved numerous lives, helped Chinese people see through the Communist Party’s vilifying propaganda about Falun Gong, and offered invaluable moral support for people struggling daily to uphold their basic right to religious freedom.

More Help is Needed

The Communist Party’s campaign against Falun Gong continues today. It remains one of the largest and most severe instances of religious persecution in the world. On a daily basis, people in China are detained and tortured. Previously healthy individuals die from abuse within months, weeks, or even days of being taken into custody.

But international pressure can make a difference. Whether you are evaluating a refugee application, preparing for a meeting with a Chinese official, trying to help a constituent with family detained in China, or would simply like to learn more about Falun Gong and its treatment in China, below are a few key references and two videos we believe would be most helpful. A more comprehensive set of resources and third-party reports can be found to the right.

The Falun Dafa Information Center is happy to assist in addressing specific requests. We can provide briefings on the latest conditions for Falun Gong inside China, offer feedback on potential legislation, and help identify experts and Falun Gong torture victims to testify at hearings. Please email us at XXX with your request and we will respond promptly.
