2014 Another 92 Falun Gong Practitioners Persecuted to Death
The Communist regime’s persecution of Falun Gong
has been going on for 15 years.
Massive data shows this persecution is
ever increasingly expanding.
Minghui.org latest data on Dec. 14, shows at least 3,813
Falun Gong practitioners are confirmed dead
due to the persecution.
This figure is only the tip of the iceberg.
It is far from the actual number of death cases.
Recently released data by Minghui.org shows
another 92 Falun Gong practitioners have been
confirmed dead during 2014.
Among them, 69 were killed between January and November
of 2014, and 23 were killed before 2014.
The oldest was 77 years old and the youngest only 26.
The geographical distribution of the data shows
the persecution is spread throughout China.
The northeastern provinces were the most severely implicated,
14 from Heilongjiang, 13 from Liaoning, and 12 from Jilin.
Xing Tianxing, commentator: “The data shows
the persecution has not stopped but only expanded."
The data also shows the cause of death among the 92 victims:
torture in prison, labor camp, brainwashing center,
public security and police station,
as well as harassment leading to destitution and homelessness,
kidnapping, raids, extortion, stalking,and monitoring.
There were 29 of them died in prison.
Falun Gong spokesman Zhang Erping indicates the so-called
negative reports on Falun Gong in mainland have been rare
these years due to condemnation and pressure
from international society.
The mainlanders have mistakenly believed the regime
has eased off on Falun Gong.
In fact, the persecution has never changed
but become only more subtle.
Zhang Erping: “The CCP’s persecution policy
against Falun Gong has not changed.
Even the mainland media don’t report much about Falun Gong,
but the wanton persecution of Falun Gong, the torture,
and the many victims persecuted to death,
have continued every year."
The data of Minghui.org listed the tortures and inhuman
destruction that victims were subjected to prior to their deaths,
such as electrocution, corporal punishment, slave labor, servitude,
forced injection of nerve-damaging drugs, and even sexual abuse.
Xing Tianxing: “Those who conducted the tortures
have continued their evil deeds in their official capacities.
Many of these data show those guards have completely lost
their humanity and regard the tortures as their entertainment."
What Minghui.org reported and exposed
are only a very small portion of the actual cases.
The tight blockade of information under the regime
has left many persecution cases unknown.
Xing Tianxing indicates, the recent political struggles
of the regime have led to many of the Jiang faction sacked,
such as Zhou Yongkang and Bo Xilai, who were active culprits
in the persecution of Falun Gong.
Many other officials have returned to their senses
and repented their bad deeds.
However, as long as the CCP stays and the policy of Falun Gong
persecution continues to exist,
the persecution will never change from the root.
Xing Tianxing: “For more than a decade,
since Jiang Zemin started the persecution,
the entire regime from central to local,
from the government to the law,
has been filled with only those who have actively participated
in the persecution.
The downfall of Zhou Yongkang or some of the official hierarchy
won’t solve the problem."
Xing Tianxing warns not to rely on the leadership or the policy.
On the contrary, only the joint efforts of the entire nation
to disintegrate the CCP will thoroughly resolve
and bring an end to all of the persecutions in China today,
be it of Falun Gong, dissidents, activists,
religious groups, Tibetan or Xinjiang minorities.
Zhang Erping appeals to all the good people at home and abroad,
including the righteous people in the Communist regime
to stand up against the persecution,
to bring a better future for self, and in history
