Persecution outside China

When criticised for its abysmal human rights record by Western governments, the Chinese communist regime's default position is that "outsiders should not interfere with China's internal affairs". But when it comes to controlling its citizens or advancing its own interests abroad, the CCP apparently considers what happens anywhere in the world to be its "internal affairs".

Spy network

China's interference in the affairs of other countries through its vast spy network is well documented, as is its policy of extending the persecution of Falun Gong outside its borders. Falun Gong practitioners in North America, Europe, Australia, and many other places have frequently felt the weight of Chinese oppression. They have had their websites attacked, their personal computers filled with viruses, their phones bugged, their homes and vehicles broken into, and much more. They have even been physically attacked by CCP hirelings on more than one occasion.

Private property

Putting all the pieces together, a clear pattern emerges: The CCP considers anyone with a Chinese face its private property and believes it has absolute authority over that person anywhere in the world. And for Falun Gong practitioners who have been targeted for eradication in China, the situation is even worse, as the CCP will stop at nothing – not even its own borders – to pursue this irrational persecution.

He received an unsigned letter from the Jiangsu branch of CPAFFC (Chinese People's Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries), a CCP organisation, on January 13th, 2014. The letter demanded that he withdraw his support for Falun Gong and urged him to ask his colleagues to do the same.

Mr MacLaren stated that the demands of CCP organisations have no influence over his decisions. On the contrary, he said, the letter has prompted him to step up his efforts to support Falun Gong practitioners.
