8.3.2. Falun Gong preaching (法轮功传教)

Street preaching is an important aspect of Falun Gong, using stands and leaflets on the streets much like Jehovah’s Witnesses.


  • 讲真相: "truth-telling"

  • hongfa (TODO characters?)

The Falun Gong organization also specifies guidelines on how to preach, although these might not be canon, even though if they are not, it is extremely likely that LHZ is directly involved in their specification

Falun Gong has also used phone call preaching.

All of this is part of their effort to "save people (救人)", i.e. convert them to Falun Gong.

Li Hongzhi (李洪志, LHZ, Falun Gong prophet) personally heavily emphasises the importance of preaching in Canonical Falun Gong texts (法轮功的经典著作) TODO link/quote, and because of this is it a de-facto religious obligation, and a major part of Making cult members work long hours for free (Orange papers, 让信徒免费长时间工作, 橙色文件).

This image taken from a believer website shows a typical local regular gathering of believers on weekends, or even week days if there are enough retired believers in the group. They will put on their exercise music, and do exercises to attract more followers. Someone will also stand on their stall giving out propaganda flyers, or asking people to sign petitions for Western governments to support Falun Gong, e.g. opposing their alleged organ harvesting. In the case of touristic areas with Chinese people walking around, they will also ask the Chinese tourists to quit the their CCP membership, possibly using a fake name. Ciro Santilli (三西猴, anti-CCP fanatic, 反中共狂热, stupid cunt, 傻屄, CIA agent, CIA特工, 肏你妈的) has to say: it is very amusing to see those Chinese people trying to pretend to ignore the censored religion, when some of them are clearly curious about it, especially the younger ones who didn’t see it live. Some just get mad, and say how the CCP is so great to them. Source.
