Minnesota Newspaper Publishes Practitioners' Response to Defamatory Article

(Clearwisdom.net) On August 12, 2005, The Star Tribune (Minnesota, USA) published an article called "Misleading story hurt Falun Gong" in the "Commentary" section of the newspaper. (http://www.clearwisdom.net/emh/articles/2005/8/13/63891.html) The article was written in response to a Beijing propaganda article appropriated by the Associated Press called "Falun Gong Followers Renounce Group," published in many American media outlets in January. The article was viewed controversially because it did not give an accurate depiction of Falun Gong and the events of the so-called "self-immolation." Falun Gong is accepted and proclaimed by over 50 countries world-wide and that the international community views the "self-immolation" as a staged event used by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) to incite hatred against Falun Gong and justify its brutal persecution of Falun Gong.
