Falun Gong



    Li Hongzhi, founder of Falun Gong.
Falun Gong is a type of Qi Gong, a system of meditation and energy exercises, introduced in China in 1992 by its inventor, Li Hongzhi.

In just a few years it became enormously popular in China, with millions or tens of millions of practitioners. The Chinese government reacted by withdrawing official recognition from it.

In April 1999 more than ten thousand Falun Gong followers held a vigil outside the walled compound where Chinese government officials live to demand official recognition. This was the largest demonstration in China since the Tienanmen massacre.

The government reacted by outlawing Falun Gong, burning millions of its publications, and arresting thousands of its practitioners.
