Falun Gong is a discipline that combines meditation and slow-moving gigong exercises with a moral philosophy. Those who practice Falun Gong have been subject to a persecution campaign started by the Chinese Communist Party in July 1999. It is aimed at eliminating the practice in the People’s Republic of China. According to Amnesty International, it includes a propaganda campaign, a program of enforced conversion and re-education, and a variety of coercive measures such as arbitrary arrests, forced labour, and physical torture sometimes resulting in death. Conor Deane spoke with Dongxue Di a disciple of Falun Gong about her experience.
