On July 20, 2001, The Houston Chronicle published a piece on people demonstrating outside the Chinese consulate in Houston who "are calmly drawing attention to the Chinese government's persecution of the Falun Gong spiritual movement...The Chinese government has sent thousands of Falun Gong followers to prison or labor camps...As long as the United States nourishes liberty and China's rulers war against it, relations between the two nations will not and cannot be smooth."
