Falun Gong

1999 inledde det kinesiska kommunistpartiet förföljelsen av Falun Gong- utövare i Kina. Vid den tiden fanns det enligt regimen cirka 70 miljoner Falun Gong- utövare i Kina. Falun Gong förbjöds och målet var att det skulle vara ”utrotat” på tre månader. Falsk propaganda producerades för att så misstro och hat mot Falun Gong och på sätt rättfärdiga förföljelsen som pågår än idag.

Utövare av Falun Gong förlorar rätten till arbete och undervisning. Oräkneliga familjer har splittrats och många barn har blivit föräldralösa när deras föräldrar fängslats eller torterats till döds.

Hjärntvätt och tortyr används rutinmässigt för att få människor att sluta utöva metoden. I en rapport från 2006 uppger FN:s tortyrrapportör, Manfred Novak, att två tredjedelar av dem som torteras i fängelser i Kina är Falun Gong-utövare.

Flertalet av de som arresteras sänds till kinesiska arbetsläger, vilka ofta benämns som vår tids Gulag, där de utsätts för slavarbete och tortyr.

Det finns fler än 3000 dokumenterade dödsfall bland Falun Gong- utövare till följd av tortyr, men det verkliga antalet befaras vara det mångdubbla. Vidare redovisas dödsfall bland Falun Gong- utövare av regimen som självmord.

Key Statistics Related to Falun Gong 2010 Annual Report

87,000 – Number of reports of torture against Falun Gong adherents to emerge from China since 1999. 8,037 – Number of practitioners arrested in the six months leading up to the Beijing Olympics. Some were killed within days or weeks of arrest, while hundreds of others were subsequently sentenced arbitrarily to labor camps or prisons. 3,369 – Number of Falun Gong adherents confirmed to have died as a result of abuse in police custody or other forms persecution since 1999. Due to extreme difficulty in discovering and verifying information in China related to wrongful deaths, this figure likely understates the true death toll.

Danielle Wang: A Daughter Without a Father

A Young Woman in the U.S. Tells the Story of a Father Imprisoned for his Faith. In the dawn hours of July 20, 1999, according to eyewitness accounts from neighbors, Zhiwen was kidnapped from his bed by police and taken away in waiting police vans. Practicing Falun Gong in China had literally become a crime overnight, and he was one of the thousands of practitioners throughout the country targeted for immediate arrest. Watching from afar in America, Danielle says she found it impossible to imagine why her government would strike out at kind-hearted people. Remembering that time, she looks sad and thoughtful. “The country I grew up in was so bright, but Jiang Zemin [then leader of the Chinese Communist Party] showed its dark side,” says Danielle. She still struggles to understand why her gentle and selfless father was taken away and has been held for so long, like a common criminal.
