Has JW.ORG previously announced that the Great Tribulation has already started? Or is it something still to occur in the future?

I do not recall an announcement on jw.org as to the fact that the "Great Tribulation has already started". I think that might have got the attention of many if so. There is likely quite a history

It has not Started because Babylon the great has not fallen

There is likely quite a history to understanding of the timing of the "great tribulation". JW Insider might be able to provide a synopsis of this.

My first recollection on this subject is what was said in the 1966 book Life Everlasting in the Freedom of the Sons of God which stated on page 357 para 29: "The "great tribulation" that Jesus Christ predicted in harmony with Daniel 12:l began in the year 1914 C.E.". Later in the book (page 371 para 54) it was stated "that Jehovah God had cut short the days of tribulation in the year 1918 to permit the sealing of the remnant of the "chosen ones" and the gathering of the "great crowd,".

This view has been considerably adjusted in the interim years.

Some recent discussion on jw.org regarding the great tribulation can be found here:
