Falun Gong versus the Chinese State

Two recent pieces in Forbes detail the ongoing contest between the Falun Gong movement and the Chinese state. The Falun Gong have attempted to use the internet and international phone calls to bolster dissent against the CCP with some success - they claim credit for 7 million CCP members having renounced party membership. In response, the CCP appears to have extended a campaign of violent intimidation to the United States. The persecution of the Falun Gong illustrates, perhaps better than any other single fact, the limits to any propensity to political reform in China.

It would be prudent to express some reservations as to the accuracy of Falun Gong claims. See here http://thosewhodare.blogspot.com/2005/07/i-would-like-to-announce-my.html
in regards to the party "resignations".

Secondly, there is no cooberating evidence of the purpose behind the brake in/assault besides FLG/Epoch Times claims.
