After viewing the documentary film Letter from Masanjia in the Canadian Parliament, MPs were moved and saddened at the plight of the film’s protagonist, and Falun Gong practitioners being persecuted in China. One senator said, “What's happening to Canadian citizen Sun Qian and other Falun Gong practitioners is clearly a violation of the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and the Convention Against Torture.”
As the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights approaches, numerous Falun Gong practitioners in China are still suffering human rights abuses for refusing to renounce their faith. Thirty-one practitioners were recently confirmed to have been sentenced to prison in November 2018, bringing the year-to-date number of sentenced practitioners to 831.
A Falun Gong practitioner, who is in her 70's, was initially given 2.5 years to be served outside of prison after she was coerced into renouncing her faith. When she retracted her words, her sentence was changed to 2.5 years in prison with a 20,000 yuan fine. When her family appealed to the judicial authorities, they were met with the words, “It's none of my business if she dies there.”
