Twenty-one years ago, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) began its brutal persecution of Falun Gong and has not let up since. The Epoch Times obtained a series of internal government documents revealing how the Chinese regime has targeted Falun Gong practitioners over the years, and during the recent pandemic.

A meditative practice involving slow-moving exercises and moral teachings, Falun Gong quickly grew in popularity, to roughly 100 million adherents by 1999, according to official estimates at the time. Then-Party leader Jiang Zemin considered the group’s popularity a threat to the atheist regime’s rule, and in July 1999, launched a nationwide campaign to round up and throw practitioners into prisons, labor camps, and psychiatric wards in an attempt to coerce them into renouncing their faith.

In 2015, one document showed that two members (later increased to four) of the local government were staffed to monitor a Falun Gong practitioner. Another document listed “key targets” in an apartment complex, and categorized Falun Gong practitioners alongside other targets with mental illnesses, serving prison terms, under criminal justice supervision, released inmates, and migrants. 20 personnel take shifts to monitor the apartment complex.

In other documents, Political and Legal Affairs Commission of Beijing (oversees security apparatuses) mandated the heavy surveillance of Falun Gong practitioners during national holidays, by assigning “multiple stalkers,” collecting personal information by taking pictures, and forcibly videotaping them. Some Falun Gong practitioners were abducted or had their homes ransacked.

This surveillance of Chinese citizens practicing Falun Gong has continued amidst the coronavirus pandemic. According to a report from the “Safe Construction Office” of Changping, every “key target” practitioner was monitored by 6 personnel on a 24-hour watch, including surveillance of their family members.

  1. I am in absolute awe of how a religion/philosophy such as Falun Gong can be such a threat? I have not looked it up in a long time, but it must recognize some form of higher power to bring this level of persecution? (Personally, I’m a Born-Again Christian) It would seem to validate a spiritual power as being real to have take such a hard stance against it? I can even see how atheists in the United States feel threatened by a Christian having the power to influence their way of life, but where atheists are the literal gun-toting, policy-making majority, what are they worried about? 🤔
