On the Incident of the Demonstration of 35 Foreign Falun Gong Practitioners in Beijing (2001-11-21)

     At about 14:00 on Nov.20, 2001, 35 foreign Falun Gong cult practitioners unfurled banners bearing Falun Gong slogans in Tian’anmen Square and then held a sit-in, while practicing Falun Gong and shouting Falun Gong phrases. The Beijing's public security agents removed them from the site, as their behavior violated Chinese laws governing parades, demonstrations and cults. All the 35 foreign nationals were given warnings and ordered to leave within a set time. The incident is now under further investigation.
