608: Eternal Spring - The Falun Gong's Fight Against Communist Chinese Party Propaganda & Persecution

Today, we discuss the Falun Gong's fight against Chinese Communist Party propaganda and persecution, as we dig into the story of a group of heroes who sought to highjack the CCP corporate television broadcasts in 2002.


On today's episode, I'm joined by Jason Loftus, filmmaker and director of Eternal Spring (2022).

 

Eternal Spring is a documentary that shows the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in China, who have been targeted by the Communist Chinese Party for their belief systems. When Falun Gong was first introduced to China in the 1990s, it quickly gained popularity among Chinese citizens who were looking for a way to improve their health and spiritual well-being. By 1999, there were a reported 70 million practicing Falun Gong members in China. That same year, however, the Chinese Communist Party outlawed the practice of Falun Gong altogether and began a brutal campaign against its practitioners.
