“(Minghui.org) U.S. Senator Mr. Patrick Leahy of Vermont issued a statement on September 12 calling on the Chinese government to end its persecution of Falun Gong. His statement has been included in the congressional record.”
The Senator wrote: “Falun Gong practitioners recently marked the 20th anniversary of the beginning of China’s campaign of brutality against their community. On July 20, 1999, hundreds of Falun Gong practitioners were arrested in their homes in the middle of the night. Over the following week, as many as 50,000 Falun Gong were reportedly detained. In the years since that initial crackdown, the Chinese government has relentlessly continued its repression of Falun Gong.”
