Falun Gong

‘The Falun Gong 24-hour peaceful protest has continued for almost 13 years outside the Chinese Embassy in [Portland Place] London.  July will see the 13th year after the Communist Party of China (CPC) enforced the Falun Gong ban in July 2009.  CPC also initiated a propaganda campaign to wipe out the practice, which claims to have 100 million followers worldwide.  Falun Gong practitioners take it in turns to sit across the road from the Embassy, meditating peacefully. A firearms officer guarding the Embassy says that a blind eye is turned to the protest and there have never been any signs of trouble.’ Misinterpreting.com 2012
