Abstract

Introduction Much literature has been written on Chinese government’s persecutions of Falun Gong, or Falun Dafa, a self-cultivation and quasi-religious qigong practice banned in China since July 1999. Falun Gong has been making headlines in the world media as a champion of human rights and victim of violations of human rights in China. While Chinese government’s campaigns against Falun Gong and cults are worth noting, it is equally fascinating to note Falun Gong’s worldwide protests against the persecutions as constituting a new protest culture in the 21st century.
