China: Chilling new “Zero Out” campaign.

Beijing Launches New Campaign Against Falun Gong

The Chinese communist government has launched a new campaign against the followers of Falun Gong, aiming to crush the faith. Called “Zero-Out,” it has been launched by the 610 Office and the Political and Legal Affairs Committee, two entities that are specifically tasked with persecuting Falun Gong followers.

Zero-Out Campaign
The zero-out campaign aims to reduce the number of Falun Gong practitioners to zero. During the past two decades, the CCP has blacklisted almost every Falun Gong practitioner in China. Back in 2004 when the government-issued ID cards to citizens, Beijing had placed a special code in the IC chips of the cards belonging to Falun Gong practitioners. So when these people use the ID cards for any purpose, say applying for a passport, they will be flagged. In some areas, the police carry devices that alert them if the ID card is within 30 meters. Even if a person had renounced Falun Gong due to the persecution, their names will still be on the blacklist.

The Zero-Out campaign will refresh the blacklist. “The police are harassing practitioners on government lists, collecting their personal information, and asking them to sign prepared statements to renounce Falun Gong… if the practitioners signed the renunciation statements, the officers would remove their names from the blacklist and wouldn’t harass them in the future… Many practitioners had their homes ransacked, and some had their cellphones taken. Several of their family members were also targeted and ordered to persuade their loved ones to give up their faith,” according to the Minghui website.

The Chinese communist government is calculating that many registered Falun Gong practitioners might find the idea of being treated like a regular citizen attractive, and thus be willing to renounce their faith. In one incident, police deceived a Falun Gong practitioner to open the door of his home by posing as census workers. The person was taken to a hospital, later escaped, and has apparently been hiding from authorities.

In the persecution of Falun Gong started by the Chinese Communist Party in July 1999, the PLAC, an extrajudicial agency overseeing state security and judiciary branches, has played a central role in making and executing persecution policies.

In the new “zero-out” campaign, launched on the 21st anniversary of the persecution Falun Gong, local community workers and police officers were mobilized to visit Falun Gong practitioners on the government’s blacklist. They collected the practitioners’ information and attempted to force them to sign prepared statements to renounce Falun Gong. Some practitioners’ family members were also harassed and threatened.
