Considered by Chinese authorities to be one of the most taboo topics and a key target of state-led persecution, Falun Gong remains a central issue in contemporary China. The Falun Dafa Information Center (FDIC) is a primary resource for information about this spiritual group and the human rights abuses Falun Gong practitioners continue to face at the hands of the Chinese regime. Offering first-hand accounts, updated documentation, and in-depth analysis on the issue, as well as serving as the official press office of Falun Gong, the Center serves as a vital resource for any media professional reporting on China.
