Currently, however, there are at least 12 family members of Canadians suffering in Chinese labour camps and prisons. Tens of millions of people are deprived of their basic rights.

The upcoming APEC meeting in late October in Mexico is another good opportunity to let Jiang Zemin know the continued serious concerns from so many Canadians and Canadian government officials regarding the human rights abuses against Falun Gong practitioners in China. Our voice is important.

Falun Gong, (a.k.a. Falun Dafa), is a practice of meditation and exercises with teachings based on the universal principle of "Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance."    Since its introduction in 1992, it quickly spread by word of mouth throughout China, and is now practiced in over 50 countries including Canada. With government estimates of as many as 100 million practicing Falun Gong, China's Chiarman Jiang Zemin outlawed the
peaceful practice and started a brutal crackdown in July 1999, fearful of anything touching the hearts and minds of more citizens than the Communist Party.

The Falun Dafa Information Center has verified details of 487 deaths thus far. Government officials inside China, however, report that the actual death toll is well over 1,600. Over 100,000 have been detained, with more than 20,000 being sentenced to forced labor camps without trial.
