It began in the middle of the night, July 20, 1999.
Across China under the veil of darkness, police dragged ordinary people from their beds. Many would be taken to holding centers and jails, others beaten, and some would die from torture.
Thus began a nationwide, violent crusade against 100 million innocent people. It is a crusade characterized by mass, arbitrary detentions, imprisonment, torture, and killing. It is a crusade that has been raging for 21 years.
The Falun Dafa Information Center is taking the month of July to promote an online campaign using the hashtag #21YearsTooLong. This campaign will consist of a number of posts and content throughout the month that will shed new light on the scale and nature of human rights abuses against Falun Gong in China, as well as the impact of this suppression around the world.
