Practitioners of Falun Gong (or Falun Dafa) stand in protest against the on-going persecution of their spiritual discipline by the Chinese Communist Party in London’s Chinatown, UK. The persecution of Falun Gong refers to the campaign initiated by the Chinese Communist Party against practitioners of Falun Gong since July 1999, aimed at eliminating the practice in the People's Republic of China. According to Amnesty International, it includes a multifaceted propaganda campaign, a program of enforced ideological conversion and re-education, and a variety of extralegal coercive measures such as arbitrary arrests, forced labor, and physical torture sometimes resulting in death. Falun Gong, or Falun Dafa, is a spiritual discipline first introduced in China in 1992 through public lectures by its founder, Li Hongzhi. It combines the practice of meditation and slow-moving qigong exercises with a moral philosophy emphasising morality and the cultivation of virtue in its central tenets of Truthfulness, Benevolence (or Compassion) and Forbearance (Chinese: 真、善、忍) and identifies as a qigong practice of the Buddhist school, though its teachings also incorporate elements drawn from Taoist traditions. Practitioners of Falun Gong aspire to better health and, ultimately, spiritual enlightenment.
