FALUN GONG, CHINESE REPRESSION

In China last year 8000 members of the spiritual group Falun Gong were arrested; more than 100 died under detention. Adherents of Falun Gong have received long prison sentences solely for possessing the society’s literature.Chinese authorities regard this group as a threat to China. Despite Falun Gong’s benign spiritual teachings of Buddhist meditation and traditional body exercises, the Chinese government continues to regard the group with hostility. Torture and other acts of cruelty have been used to purge Falun Gong.The Immigration Service is ambivalent about Falun Gong’s cases. It has held that each case must be weighed separately based on the extent of a member’s activities for the Society and the degree of repression the member faced in China and the level of threat that the participant would face if he/she returned to China.
