WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT

Senate Resolution 232 calls for the immediate cessation of the Chinese
Communist Party’s campaign of suppression against the Falun Gong spiritual
practice, and expresses solidarity with Chinese citizens who are peacefully
pursuing freedom and dignity for themselves and their country.

Supporting this resolution sends a strong, moral message that the American
people will not stand silently by in the face of egregious human rights
abuses.

Falun Gong is a traditional spiritual practice of the Buddhist school that
involves meditation and a moral philosophy centered on the values of
truthfulness, compassion, and tolerance. In the 1990s in China, an estimated 70
million people benefited from the practice, which was at one time celebrated
openly by Chinese authorities.

However, as the practice grew, Chinese leaders feared that Falun Gong was a
source of ideological competition on account of its independence, popularity,
and traditional spiritual content. On 20 July, 1999, the Communist Party
launched a campaign to “eradicate” Falun Gong. Since then, Western journalists
and human rights groups have documented the widespread extralegal imprisonment,
systematic torture and death in custody of Falun Gong believers in China.

According to the U.S. State Department’s 2009 country report on human rights,
adherents of Falun Gong have been estimated to comprise as much as half of
China’s official reeducation-through-labor camp population, numbering in the
hundreds of thousands. Research by journalist Ethan Gutmann suggests that
upwards of 400,000 Falun Gong prisoners of conscience are currently detained in
China; in some labor camp facilities, over 80% of detainees are Falun Gong
practitioners. The Congressional Executive Commission on China states that the
scope and intensity of the ongoing crackdown on Falun Gong is “unrivalled” since
the commission began its work in monitoring human rights in China.

In addition to extrajudicial imprisonment, torture and killing, Amnesty
International reports that Chinese authorities launched a “massive propaganda
campaign” to demonize and erode public sympathy for Falun Gong, thereby
justifying its persecution.

Falun Gong adherents have responded to this campaign of suppression using
entirely peaceful means. Inspired by a belief in the power of truth to enliven
people’s consciences and drive out hatred and violence, they have sought to
educate Chinese citizens on the true nature of their spiritual practice, the
persecution against it, and the wider history of the Communist Party of China.
As a result of these efforts, in late 2004 a movement began in China that has
seen tens of millions of citizens symbolically disavowing their affiliations to
the Communist Party, whose policies and practices they can no longer support in
good conscience.

By making a specific, unequivocal statement opposing the persecution of Falun
Gong, the United States government can enhance its credibility as a champion of
justice and human rights in the world. Moreover, Resolution 232 is consistent
with the foreign policy objective of engaging not only with foreign governments,
but also with their people. Although China’s leaders may not appreciate censure,
the Chinese people – and posterity – will.  A China in which Falun Gong’s values
of truthfulness, compassion, and tolerance can be freely practiced will be a
more responsible, transparent, and stable international partner.
