Además de llevar a cabo una campaña intensiva de propaganda anti-Falun Gong dentro de China, una estrategia central del Partido Comunista Chino ha sido esparcir mentiras e incitar el odio en el extranjero. Lo siguiente es un análisis y partes de noticias que detallan cómo esta estrategia ha sido implementada tanto dentro de China como en la sociedad Occidental.
If you have colleagues, friends or classmates from Mainland China, there’s a chance they have told you no students died in Tiananmen Square in 1989, or perhaps that repression in Tibet is a lie cooked up by the Western journalists, and that the Dalai Lama is an insidious terrorist. And you may have reeled in awe at how otherwise intelligent people living in a land where information flows freely could be so tragically misled.
The excessive caution many people show with respect to Falun Gong has the same source as the non-appearance of politicians when the Dalai Lama visits. That source is fear of what the Chinese authorities may do to them. For an American like myself, probably the worst possible is a harassing phone call from the Chinese embassy or denial of a visa. Since my research is about China, I value the opportunity to go there. But I do not believe that a free person in a free country should act differently than they would be inclined to, out of fear of a foreign autocracy. But many do.
“Isn’t the group a little… well, weird? I mean, I know it’s awful what’s happening to them in China and all, but…” quipped Paula. Having studied Falun Gong and its suppression, I saw in Paula’s suspicion toward the practice the culmination of a nasty political campaign born in Beijing. Her suspicion was engineered, you might even say. It wasn’t an unmediated, raw response to her encounter with Falun Gong only hours before. In fact, it had nothing to do with anything the group had done or said; she hadn’t spoken with any of them or taken their literature.
Former Senior Diplomat from China Testifies before Congress "I testify today regarding how the Chinese missions abroad, and specifically in Australia, carry out their policy of persecuting Falun Gong adherents. In each Chinese mission overseas there must be at least one official in charge of Falun Gong affairs. The head and the deputy head of the mission will be responsible for the Falun Gong affairs."
The Falun Dafa Information Center has learned that Falun Gong practitioner Peter Yuan Li was assaulted and robbed by armed Asian men yesterday in his Atlanta home. Li is an information technology specialist who has been active in Falun Gong human rights advocacy over the past six years.
Thai police manhandled Falun Gong protesters outside the Bangkok Chinese Embassy on December 10, International Human Rights Day. After being seen going in and out of the Chinese Embassy, dozens of Thai policemen crossed the street and roughly searched Falun Gong practitioners quietly protesting the six-year persecution of their practice in China. The police dragged some of them and took away their banners. One officer stated that he did not want to break up their protest but was told to do so by the Chinese Embassy.
Anne Yang, 25, sat staring at the news displayed across her computer screen. Then, quietly—lest her coworkers hear—she began to cry. It was at that moment that she realized she could no longer deny what many of her American friends had told her.
Chinese President Hu Jintao and his 300-strong delegation arrived in Argentina on November 16. Hu is on a tour of South America with stops in Brazil, Argentina, Cuba and Chile, where the APEC conference will be held on November 20 and 21.
An official at Foreign Affairs Canada has confirmed that Pan Xinchun, the former Vice-Consul General of the People’s Republic of China at Toronto, who was found liable in a Canadian court for defaming Joel Chipkar, a Toronto spokesperson for Falun Gong practitioners, is no longer in Canada after failing to satisfy the judgment against him.
