The NGO International Education Development (IED) had this to say about Falun Gong at the UN Human Rights Commission in August, 2001: "We strongly agree with Special Rapporteur Mme. Koufa that State terrorism in the form of government terror against its own people -- what she calls "terrorism from above" -- produces far more gross violations of human rights than any other form of terrorism... In our investigation, the only deaths have been at the hands of the Chinese authorities; families have been broken up because family members have been killed by the regime; people have been broken down, not by Falun Gong, but by extreme torture, incarceration in mental hospitals with brutal treatment, hard labour in labour camps and other such practices." In reference to how the Chinese regime has tried to use the supposed self-immolation incident in Tiananmen Square on January 23, 2001 to slander Falun Gong, IED states: "we have obtained a video of that incident that in our view proves that this event was staged by the government."
