Since the earliest days of the Chinese Communist Party’s campaign against Falun Gong, foreign governments and world leaders have spoken out in support of Falun Gong and called for an end to the brutal persecution meted out against millions of practitioners in China.

From revolutionary Russia to Nazi Germany to Hutu-led Rwanda, unleashing the propaganda machinery is always the preface to much larger crimes against humanity. For the past 20 years in China, the Chinese […]
