(Minghui.org) Tailai Prison has intensified its persecution of detained Falun Gong practitioners since November 2015, when a new mandate was issued to specifically target practitioners who refuse to give up their belief.
As no law in China criminalizes Falun Gong, the imprisoned practitioners never considered themselves criminals and thus refused to take part in forced labor. Their peaceful protest against the false imprisonment was met with this new mandate.

(Minghui.org) On October 29, 2016, a prominent community leader received a big welcome at the Falun Dafa practice site on the Gold Coast, Queensland.
Michael Kaff, who recently ran as an independent candidate for the Australian Senate, continues to be very supportive of Falun Dafa and has taken every opportunity to raise awareness of the horrifying reality that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is killing Dafa practitioners, Tibetans, underground Christians, and Uyghurs for their organs for profit in China.
Mr. Kaff showed his support for the fundamental freedom to practice Falun Dafa, without fear of persecution or organ harvesting, by attending the weekly practice site at Harley Park, Labrador. He learned all five exercises – the four standing ones and the sitting meditation.
