Falun Gong Admits Handing out CDs to Mainland Tourists

BBC Monitoring/Jan 7, 2002

Local Falun Gong practitioners have dismissed suggestions that they are encouraging mainland visitors to violate Chinese laws by distributing CD-ROMs outlining Beijing's suppression of the movement. The group admitted that dozens of its members had handed out such material to mainland tourists, under the guise of Australian travel documentaries. However, Falun Gong spokeswoman Sharon Xu said the disguise had been used merely to allay the fears of mainlanders about the movement, which has been branded an evil cult by Beijing.

[Xu] It is, I think, their personal decision whether or not to bring that home with them. But the persecution itself is illegal. Even if these people did take back these materials, they do not violate the Chinese constitution. By distributing it we are challenging against the wrong persecution of Falun Gong, because persecution of Falun Gong is unlawful, is absolutely against the constitution of China.
