Falun Dafa Association’s Letter to ABC on Its Harmful and Unfair Reporting

It appears that ABC has used a dishonest and selective framing to depict Falun Gong beliefs as divisive, alien, threatening and “cult-like,” and to thereby cause viewers to regard Falun Gong with contempt, hostility, and hatred. This is an extremely unfair, uncharitable approach to news coverage: it will cause misunderstanding about a culturally foreign faith practice, and potentially exacerbate the trauma of Falun Gong practitioners in Australia who have fled political persecution as refugees.
