As history shows us, when a tyrannical regime sets out to eliminate a group of people, the first step is to demonize them.
From revolutionary Russia to Nazi Germany to Hutu-led Rwanda, unleashing the propaganda machinery is always the preface to much larger crimes against humanity.
For the past 20 years in China, the Chinese Communist Party propaganda machine has systematically targeted Falun Gong, seeking to vilify their beliefs and dehumanize them as people.
The results have been horrific and tragic.
On Human Rights Day, the Falun Dafa Information Center is releasing “Lies That Kill”: a nine-minute video that takes a closer look at how the propaganda machinery of the Chinese Communist Party has proven deadly inside China, and dangerously misleading abroad.
Today, as we mark the day the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Center is calling on human rights advocates around the world to recognize, call out, and debunk propaganda from the Chinese regime and its agents, which continues to fuel terrible human rights abuses.
