Statistics & Evidence

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has gone to great lengths to hide the scale and severity of human rights abuses committed against people who practice Falun Gong in China, even detaining, jailing, and torturing those who have tried to investigate or document the persecution. In some cases, Falun Gong practitioners have even been sentenced to long prison terms on charges of “divulging state secrets” for actions like speaking to foreign journalists or sharing internal government documents related to the persecution.

The CCP has also used political and financial influence around the world to keep journalists silent and drive false narratives about Falun Gong.

The result?

This systematic campaign of abductions, torture, and death targeting tens of millions of Chinese people remains largely hidden from view.

Yet, by pulling together reports from the United Nations, the U.S. government, human rights organizations, and a few quality pieces of investigative journalism, as well as first-hand accounts from inside China, the real scope and scale of this persecution campaign emerges with much clarity.

The following are key indicators quantifying this human rights crisis.
